  1. Fortunately, I found an old .ipa file inside my iTunes> Mobile Applications folder on my Mac dating from November 2015, removed the V.8 update in iTunes, dragged a copy of the Evernote .ipa file back into iTunes, resynced my devices and bingo, I can use Evernote on my iPhone and iPad again without the nonsense and confusion that is V8!
  2. I've no idea, I hope it eventually happens but fortunately I managed to roll back to version 7, so ever since I've been blissfully unaware of all the nasty problems with version 8.
  3. Reinstatement of Card View - Evernote Version 8 Lacks Retrieval Cues of Version 7 Evernote's aspiration has always been ambitious in seeking to provide users with a kind of external super-brain, capable of remembering everything, forever, in an organized, ubiquitously available way, with effortless capture and recall. However, for this virtual repository to come close to being an annexe of one's own brain, a basic grasp of neurology and emulation of the processes by which memory works would be helpful ie. in terms of encoding, consolidating, retaining and retrieving. Neurologists seem to agree that memories are not retrieved by means of a simple pathway, but through a complex web of interconnecting neural networks working together. For this reason the abadonment of the elaborate card-view in Version 7 of Evernote is a big mistake since by drastically reducing the number of retrieval cues, access to stored information has now become much more limited and difficult. In Version 8, browsing through notes, especially those where audio, sketch or attached files are included but hidden, is a dispiriting experience since there is no easy way of knowing where things are, without quite a bit of guesswork and selecting each note preview individually. There is only a single, very lengthy column to look through and no way to skim a large number of detailed previews quickly, as there was in Version 7. The search bar is of little help in recalling important stuff uploaded but forgotten about. Notes may still be stored on Evernote servers, but they are no longer readily accessible. The design of the app may appear less cluttered and the app possibly performs faster but it's at the expense of it's basic function. It's as if one's house has been tidied up when out and all essential belongings unexpectedly stashed away in the dark recesses of a vast store with only a small door to get in and no light. Personally, I have invested a huge amount of extremely important information, from every area of my life into Evernote and it's crucial I stay in touch with it on a daily basis. Having placed my faith and trust in the system, I need it to work reliably. I am sorry to be critical, but it's a serious matter for me and it seems I'm not alone in my criticism of the latest update. I wouldn't like to see Evernote become Nevernote, redundant and unloved. Reverting back to the comprehensive card view is a no-brainer and would be a positive step in sorting out some of the current issues.
  4. I've not seen it mentioned here yet but previews of notes no longer contain audio, sketch or attached files, they only show title, body text and photos. This is a major problem for me as there is no way of knowing which notes contain them without going through and opening each note individually. I need to refer quickly between notes containing such items but since the update this does not appear to be possible. Another issue I've noticed which presents potential security issues is that when the app first opens, there's a delay before the password screen comes up which is long enough for notes to be read or screen captured. I would also like to reiterate something which has already been noted (https://discussion.evernote.com/topic/103418-grid-view-missing/?do=findComment&comment=449347). The grid view is essential and must be restored to have an adequate overview of notes.
  5. The Previews for Notes now only seem to show note Titles, Body Text and Photos. In the Previews of Notes I can no longer see which contain my Audio, Sketch or Attached files. This is a problem as I need to quickly refer between Notes and now have no way of knowing which Notes contain them. When the app first opens, there's a delay before the password screen comes up, long enough for Notes to be read or screen captured. As someone has already noted (https://discussion.evernote.com/topic/103418-grid-view-missing/?do=findComment&comment=449347) the grid view is essential and must be restored to have an adequate overview of Notes.
