  1. Thanks. I am growing weary of software developers sacrificing functionality for aesthetics.
  2. G'day, I fired up my evernote today after a few months of not using and man his it taken a big blow in functionality. I read the "State of the Product" post and see that they realise there is a fair bit missing from the new windows version as compared to old. Is there a list of things that they are currently working on, or are promising to return to the new version from the old? If so can someone point me in the right direction. If not, how long will the legacy product remain usable?
  3. I was very excited to see this addon announced but have been very underwhelmed with its functionality on first impressions. It is so slow and counter intuitive when it comes to labelling and selecting notebooks. Why is there no drop down menu like the web clipper that is fast and snappy to respond? I have to navigate to labels then navigate back then navigate to notebooks. It is so clunky. And it just seems to me like the be clipper does a better job of capturing the email overall anyway. The web clipper even adds a link that you can use to get back to your email whereas the addon does not. Am I missing something here?
  4. G'day, I use the Evernote scanner (the one that is baked into Evernote) on a daily basis. I use it across multiple devices both apple and android. Over the last few months the scanner accuracy on all of my devices has really degraded. For example, I am simply scanning a white A4 pace of paper a on a background that is a stark contrast to the paper. Evernote idenifies the paper by putting a green border around the paper and then it just sits their continually identifying the paper without automatically taking the scan. I then have to manually press my finger on the screen to capture the scan, at which case there is about a 50 - 50 it will correctly identify the scan as a "document" and not a photo. Another problem is that it will automatically identify the A4 piece of paper - I can see that it has perfectly outlined the paper with its green border, then it takes the scan as it is supposed to, though instead of converting it to a "document" it reverts to a photo, even though the paper was seemingly perfectly identified by the scanner. I never used to have this issue and I wonder whether anyone else is experiencing issues lately?
  5. I would be looking for speech to text input most likely. And sending an email to the notebook sounds like a great idea. if i can say - Okay google, send email to "My Evernote" (thats what the email address is saved under in my contact list) then say the quick note, that might be the way to go. I am going to have to get a watch to experiment. This sounds good also. Ill try both methods when i get the watch and see which one suits best. The ultimate however, is having a simple quick note button (like the one you can find on an android phone widget) and then you can use the watch face swipe text input to make a note. 2 buttons -> bang, note saved. that's what I want. You should create an Evernote watch where you have a simple button on the side of the watch that you hold in and then you can dictate a note. The note is then saved in the default notebook as voice to text with the audio file also attached to the note. I would pay ridiculous money for something like that. Anyway thanks for the help Dave and Matt. I will buy a watch and let you know how it goes.
  6. I have been looking all across the web to see if the Evernote app for android wear supports creating new quick notes. I have been using The Secret Weapon in conjunction with Evernote for over a year now and I am always looking for the absolute fastest way to add notes to my inbox. When ideas are hitting me thick and fast, pulling my phone out of my pocket, unlocking it and pressing quick note is inconvenient. while it is a lot faster than using a note pad like I used to I want to make it even more efficient. I want to be able to add a quick note directly from android watch. this would be THE ONLY reason I would buy a watch. Can someone tell me if this is possible? All I have seen on sites that review the app is the ability to work through checklists, and add new items to checklists. I am interested in how this actually works, as i like 1 note per idea/to do. I don't like several checkboxes getting caught up in one note, as each item could have different priorities and contexts. All in all, I just want to know if I can make a quick, stand alone note on android wear, that goes to my default notebook in Evernote.
  7. Interesting. Yeah my search works fine on windows client but not on the web or android. and it is explained by Matt W in the quote in my previous message.
  8. hmm i wonder what the problem is then. All searches are working with the reminderTime in my evernote windows client but not on web or android. all searches without the reminderTime do work though. I just typed my search out one section at a time in the web version, and it works fine all the way up until I add the remindertime argument and then the search doesn't work. With further investigation i have found that the search -remindertime:day+1 will search for notes without reminders and notes with today's date as the reminder time in the windows verison. In the web version -remindertime:day+1 will only search for notes that have reminders set with dates in the past, but not notes without reminders. Am i doing something wrong? I want to be able to see notes that either have no reminders set or the reminder set for today (in other words excluding notes that need to be done in the future.)
  9. I have several saved searches that work really well on my computer but none of them are working on the web client. and it involves the reminder time search function. As an example I have this one of the searches that works on the windows client but not the web: notebook:"action pending" tag:@home -tag:3soon -tag:5later -tag:7someday -tag:6waiting -reminderTime:day+1 Can someone please tell me if this is common?
