  1. We exercise the operating system in more ways than your average app due to things like: networking, database IO, embedded HTML editing, etc. Inefficient emulation of any one of the relevant frameworks could have a disproportionate impact on performance. (E.g. if a single one of the low-level IO calls made by SQLite is 10x slower on Wine, that could account for a massive performance hit for the overall application.)

    While we're happy if Wine happens to work with Evernote, we do not support or test this configuration.

  2. Can they narrow down the IP addresses that are being hit? If you've disabled automated sync, then it shouldn't be synchronzing (i.e. shouldn't hit www.evernote.com). The client occasionally checks for software updates at update.evernote.com

    Other than that, we shouldn't really be hitting anything else. The only unusual exception is if you've clipped some HTML that has external image links that point to other web sites ... in that case, WebKit may go out and try to grab those images when you view the note in the client.

  3. If you share or publish a notebook, then your Evernote username is available to people who view that notebook. If you supplied your personal name when you created your account, that's not accessible. You can also change your personal name on file with Evernote from the Settings page on the web if you don't want your "real" name to be associated with your Evernote account.

  4. Does your proxy network require a username and password when you first start to access the web from the device? I believe that this can cause problems for our application (and other apps that try to access HTTP). My understanding is that the standard HTTP software calls in iOS don't give the right mechanism for us to get the username and password for the proxy from the user, but I'm a little fuzzy on the details.

  5. No, this isn't possible ... if you include a notebook, that scopes the rest of the search to only operate within that notebook.

    This could obviously be two different saved searches, or you could apply a tag to all notes in the notebook to use:

    any: tag:tag1 tag:tag2

    But this can't be done in quite the way you phrased it.

  6. We're planning to replace the name of the "subject date" field (which was confusing for most new users) with "due date" instead. In all other ways, it would still be usable to store an arbitrary date of your choosing, so if you wanted to store a particular historic date in that (and not use "due dates"), then you could continue to do so.

    We would add a few more features in the UI that are more convenient for people who want to use this field for an actual "due date" (e.g. sorting with values in the future), but if you want to use it to represent some other date, that's fine.
