Still getting the occasional random reminder pop up and ping but mostly nothing. Am not using Android - as I mentioned in the original post, I use a MacBook Pro and an iPhone. Was in touch with Evernote support but they got bored a week or so and simply stopped responding (a bit like their reminders;-))
Any suggestions? One day a note, accompanied by a ping, was popping up on my Mac & my iPhone whenever a reminder was due, and the next day nothing, on either the Mac or the iPhone. I might as well not have these reminders if I have to make a mental note to check Evernote to see whether one is due. Help would be much appreciated.
