My experience is comparable to that of those of you expressing your indignation here. The automated tagging promoted by Moleskine is, I think, a specious marketing lure. It clearly does not work as it purports to. No advantage accrues to the user; one might as well use any kind of notepaper, photograph it in Evernote and tag it manually, for this is just as efficacious. That said, if the tagging is in any sense effected through the Evernote cloud and not through the app. itself, as it indeed may be, then my problem may conceivably be imputable to the fact that the internet here is as slow as "an asthmatic ant carrying some heavy shopping".
