  1. And that is wrong and I just proved why. TL;DR: simply by adding whitespace to the list of allowed characters Evernote would dramatically increase strongeness of all users passwords, even these who are not using whitespace in their sequence. It would increase potential number of combinations significantly more than if one would increase it by adding to the password length.
  2. Yeah it was a bit of stridency. I'm from the East Europe And that's true. And that's why I put some effort into explaining why is this reasonable from business stand point, and not just because I or someone else want it. Of course people will just prefer free over paid, but that wasn't the point. Like email or heavy size most likely a marker you use it for business so most likely can afford pay for it... Home users may have many devices, it's not a marker - so... And that's just my opinion, rather emotional based since I don't have access to their data... A chance that I'm wrong
  3. Let me put it that way. Majority of services do not draw people straight to paid subscription. Well all of them certainly wants that bot not all of them are so obviously useful that can afford to do so. And Evernote is not an exception. What most services do is - having free plan to attract users, so people start using it. And when they fully into it, they most probably will explore new scenarios and find out some of the features they'd love is not in free plan. Or simply hit limitations of the free plan and now before a choice to turn to paid or migrate somewhere else (pay extra $ or go throu
  4. [sarcasm]Oh thanks for clarifying. That wasn't clear till you said it.[/sarcasm] No seriously did it really sounded like I'm whining or something? It sounded like a pitch in my head. I never said those are the options they must do or those are the only options in there or anything like that. None of messages in this thread mentioned anything constructive, like arguments or alternative suggestions, it was only "oh no that's not what EN offers today". Oh thanks for pointing out, how didn't I got that myself... UPD: No actually there was something constructive when DTLow pointed ou
  5. That is completely wrong statement. The general formula for possible combinations is possible number of characters ^ password length. In an alphabet of two, and assuming max length of password is 8, 2^8=256 but 3^8=6561 (we just added 1 character!). In comparison, if we stuck with alphabet of 2 but increase password length to 12, we'll get 2^12=4096, so almost doubling password length we would not get even close to the result of adding just one possible character to the alphabet. In more real example, [A-z] would be 26*2^8=52^8 where adding spaces and special characters it could be over 8
  6. Exactly that. I wasn't trying to make an order or something - did I? To me my initial post explicitly mentioning that I've no idea will it ever be even noticed by anyone from Evernote, but at least I've tried: The only real leverage we all as users have - vote with $. Unfortunately, voting system never proved to be fast or agile, and often by the time results is available it's already too late. But I also don't understand why the crowd went against me here just for the fact I express my opinion. Being in software development world for quite a while, I know how hard it is to get fe
  7. That is completely irrelevant. The devil is in the details. The low-level tier they just eliminated does not match any of the options I've suggested above. Apparently the tier they've had is failed, which doesn't mean the whole concept of low-tiers is wrong. Also if I'm not mistaken, in the announcement they explicitly mentioned they are looking for replacement... so here was my 2 cents. The separate question is - did they really looked into the data... being software development I'm witnessing even AAA companies way to often follow emotional-driven approaches rather than real facts analy
  8. I am enjoying that beauty that allows me to came here and suggest. They may listen or may not. I may use the product or may not. I don't demand and don't blame. What's your problem? Be open for a change, would you? Why? Depends on what to do and like I said if they be smart about it... In fact one of options in my first post suggest introducing new plan without taking anything from Premium - but taking from free (which they already did multiple times in the past).
  9. Well that's not how I see it. I'm not arguing there are users who can justify 8$/mo, of course there are a whole lot of them. In fact if I only found how to use it for my work - I would go for it myself. But I already have other enterprise tools... And I'm not saying 8$/mo is just too expensive or unaffordable, that's not true. What I'm saying is I don't think I'm alone with my use cases. We all just guessing here as we don't seeing their revenue and user stats, but if my assumption is right - there is a whole lot of people, entirely separate category and a piece of pie in terms of the market
  10. Well that's what I'm talking about. Scenarios are different... I don't even upload files, I've been with Dropbox and now using Google Drive for files.. I have hundreds of gigs and that's not for Evernote app to store it... I'm not sure what you mean by processing files - indexing for search? Like I said I don't need these features, I just need text notes and 8$/mo is too much for it, when Trello does it for me for free for unlimited number of devices.. and then there Google Keep and OneNone out there too.. In fact I just realized Evernote does the good old real sync between th
  11. Yes I've made a typo, obviously I meant not enterprise but small business or self employed... for this category indeed 8$/mo should not be a problem, like I said, but yet I am talking solely on home non-profit type of users. A grocery list, a vacation plan, a weekend todo and similar doesn't sounds like it has to be 8$/mo That is exactly what I did. I am software engineer and more than half of my entire life is digital. Some of it like my development IDE is close to 50$/mo. But, I mean look around - the entire Google G Suite (that includes mail, drive, calendar, text, sheets and so much
  12. I've been using Evernote back in 2014 till they limited number of devices. I don't need much from it in terms of space or features - free plan is totally ok for me. But I do have many devices - I have work laptop, home laptop, gaming PC, phones and tablet. I need my notes to be available everywhere. And I'm not ready for 8$/mo just to be able to use all my devices, given there's so many free alternatives out there. So I've been using some well known kanban style boards app ever since. Yes it's not kind of the same - but it was even better for my use cases as at most I was needed something to p
