About John

  1. +1 for highlighting, especially now that the new note infrastructure is in place that should make implementing that much easier.
  2. Brainstorming: I wonder if it would be good to have an option for notes, perhaps tied to tags and/or folders or alternately just a separate, per-note property, that would require one to enter one's Evernote password to view user-defined confidential notes if using Evernote from a commonly lost or insecure device, such as a phone. I don't care if someone picks up my phone (borrowing it, after I forgot it somewhere, etc.) and looks at my grocery list, but I wouldn't want them to be able to search and view just anything there. Or there could be a timeout on this, so that in order to view a confidential note on a phone, one would needed to have entered the password in the last n minutes. This would also ideally be a per device option--my desktop computer will have physical security, as most often will my notebook, and then each has a login password to access the hardware and/or Windows. But my phone doesn't. One might just require the Evernote account password every time one uses Evernote on the phone, but that's a bit clumsy, and may encourage people to set up too-short passwords so as to be easy on a phone. (May still be a better solution, though--especially if combined with a timeout for the account password.) My apologies if this has been discussed elsewhere (I did a quick search and didn't find it).
  3. Firefox crashed while I had a long note sitting here unsubmitted, so I'll make this blessedly short: We'd all love a full-blown mobile client, but I bet it's a lot more practical (given limited time/money for development) to put most of the initial effort into a strong web client for mobile access, using insofar as is possible local browser data caching and Java. If the speed is okay, a fairly full client might even be available that way. But I don't know enough about how feasible it is to make browser data persist, or even ideally to have an instance of the mobile browser dedicated to EN3. (Maybe it's just impossible, e.g.) I didn't answer the survey, because I want a full client when feasible, but I'll take a good mobile web system first, since that's easier, especially to cross so many different mobile platforms. Of course, this is assuming I'll use EN 3, with its non-web-feature deprivation compared with EN 2.2 or OneNote....
  4. I've been going back and forth between Evernote and OneNote, lately using mostly OneNote 2007 (since I already had Office 2007). If the "high-end" features like linking are gone forever (or for the foreseeable future) in EN3, then I may still dabble with version 3, but it just won't have the power to be my real note/PIM/organizer program, unfortunately. And if EN2.2 is orphaned, maybe it'll be time to move exclusively to OneNote, which does have its own set of advantages (superior in-note formatting, with tables, e.g.). But if EN3 were to regain EN2.X features, then its new web incarnation could give it a big leg up over ON2007 and every other rival I know of. I sure hope the latter is the case, as do most all of the more-dedicated EN users, I'd wager. Otherwise, what an earlier poster noted seems right to me: EN3 will strike a lot of people as a glorified but riskier (since non-Google [so will the company be around?], and maybe non-free in the future) version of Google Notebook. (Now if EN is purchased by Google, great, of course. )
