  1. I have common sense. Enough common sense to know that for any company, it isn't the small dedicated base of power users that keep the lights on. It's having mass appeal, it's a numbers game. And I also have enough common sense to know that when you inflate the cost to the customer up by 80% while offering little in return that is appealing to that mass market, they're going to go elsewhere en masse, as I have done after 12 years of being a customer. These are not grandiose claims, I'm not breaking new ground. If someone doesn't think your product is worth the price you've valued it at, they're not going to buy it. If you can't see the truth in that, I don't know how to help you, but I can't think of a bigger waste of my time than going out and doing research and finding statistics to prove the sky is blue, except maybe having 21,293 posts on a forum for a notetaking app. Enjoy dealing with posts like these from various people for the next several months
  2. Thanks mate. And you enjoy your overpriced, overbloated software.
  3. I'm exercising my right as a paying consumer of this product to feedback on its price. I'm sorry if this upsets a loud minority of power users who have nothing better to do than desperately come to this company's defence. You people have managed to respond to every critical post in this thread with deflections. Here's a collective WHO ASKED? from all of us.
  4. I never claimed to? In fact, no one even asked for your opinion, period, lol.
  5. Aw diddums That's nice. I haven't found use for any of the "new features," and I, like the vast majority of the userbase, just need a note taking app, which is what Evernote is supposed to be. As you said, there are other note taking apps that do what Evernote does without overestimating their worth and I will turn to them. 23p a day or not, an 80% increase in price is absurd for what Evernote is. Better hope you loud minority power users are enough to keep Evernote afloat as they alienate everyone else.
  6. I see the damage control brigade are out in full force, defending a ridiculous price increase for a product that hasn't changed substantially since I started using it in 2011. 2-3 "pebbles" as one of them put it, trying to hold back an avalanche of disgruntled users. Anyway, EN tried to charge me £80 for a subscription today, that's not happening. Nothing on this service has ever or will ever be worth that amount. Consider it cancelled.
  7. The fact that it's not a universal issue is irrelevant - it's a consistent issue that is well documented and has affected many users for the past 19 months. Here's some conclusions we can draw from evidence: There was a version of Evernote in which this was not an issue. Now it is. This suggests this is a problem with the client, and not people's hardware. There is a current workaround that severs Evernote's connection to the internet, and many people in the thread I linked in my above post have reported that this solves the slowdown issue, once again suggesting this is a problem with the client. I can consistently edit and render large files on Adobe Premiere Pro and After Effects on my computer, both of which should be more intensive actions than opening a note in Evernote, yet the former causes no lag or slowdown, and the latter does. Just how much juice does a notetaking app need? The slowdown issues are not present on the Mac client, so unless they are vastly different software for some reason, it seems this is a bug in the Windows client of Evernote in particular. All of the above is why I describe anyone's attempts at trying to scapegoat an affected person's machine in respect to this issue as a "con." The fact that EN is constantly full of bugs and every new update seems to bring new ones also leads me to have little faith that this is anything but a client issue. As for why I posted it in multiple threads, the fact that it's been 19 months and there's not even been a peep from Evernote staff about the issue is disgraceful. Several people have reported that EN has been rendered unusable to them because of this issue, yet the priority seems to fall to frivolous things like emoji support. My posting in multiple threads is simply to draw attention to this issue, and EN's lack of response. It helps the community at large because it draws attention to the problem, and if it is ignored, it draws attention to how EN chooses to handle user concerns. People can draw their own conclusions after that, but I frankly expect more from a service I pay for. Your comment, on the other hand, seems to be trying to detract me from mentioning an issue that has affected many users, and keeping quiet about bugs not only doesn't help the community at large, it negatively affects it. Yes, you are fortunate that it doesn't affect you, but just because you aren't affected doesn't change the fact that many users are.
  8. This has been an issue for a year and a half at least. Don't let anyone con you into thinking it's an issue with your computer, internet, or anything else - it's purely the Evernote client for Windows.
