I agree with this feature request. I like to have my related note links handy, so that for instance, on my phone—just tap a link to get to a related note. Simple.
True, there are workarounds, but they are time-consuming and likely beyond the novice user. Navigating back to search, typing in search parameters, fighting autocorrect, scrolling to find the note I need, clicking on the wrong one, going back, eyeballing search results again, trying to engage in conversation simultaneously...NO. Not user-friendly, period.
Evernote is elegant in it's simplicity. As advanced users, we sometimes forget that these workarounds are not so simple for novice users to grasp. This function can *and SHOULD* be improved.
