Since templates were introduced, new notes created on my iPhone don't initialize right and I have to click Done and + again. What happens is the Title box shows up, but the note area that is supposed to say "Start writing or choose a [Template]" doesn't, and a spinning icon is in that area. When I click Done, the new note is not there, even if I had entered a Title. The second time I click + always works. It only happens when I open up the app after it has been closed for a while (which is, of course, almost every time). Sometimes if I wait a while before creating a new note it will initialize right. I figured I clicked + before it was ready. But this doesn't always help.
Also perhaps related, since templates were introduced a large green spinning wait circle appears in Evernote for about 5 seconds before you can do anything. Evernote used to work instantly. So it has been slowed down. Perhaps I see these issues more than other users because I have over 1000 notes; just a thought. But I see this slowdown and this bug every time I use it, so I would think this would have been noticed and fixed quickly. Thanks!
