I may be dating myself (I admit it, I'm old). Does anyone remember "Packrat" from Polaris Software? It was a precursor for Evernote type programs. It was a great application and was widely in use until they came out with an ill-conceived upgrade. The analogy is not perfect. Their problem was they came up with great improvements, but could not produce a stable version. For Evernote, they have a stable new version, it just doesn't do much. How many times have we heard that features are coming 'later'?
I'll remain a loyal paying customer as long as they maintain the V6 branch in Windows or provide a feature equivalent V10. I have had V10 installed for a couple of days, but I just reinstalled the 'legacy' application and will be using that. I'm retired and not a business user and I store almost everything digital in Evernote. That gives me access to my information everywhere. One of the primary features I use is to move a PDF into Evernote. It was simple using Nitro Reader 5 by clicking a menu option. When I installed V10, the menu item disappeared. Now, it's something that's 'coming'. I also learned this morning, that hitting the delete key doesn't move a note to the trash anymore. Now, it's 'CTRL-Backspace'. In my opinion, that's nothing more than making a change for the sake of making a change.
Upgrades should at least preserve the features of an old version. Offering a stripped-down new version may serve the developers. I guess I have to question that since this version has so many things missing from it, why the management decided to release it before it was ready. When V10 becomes feature-equivalent to V6, I'll take a look again.
