  1. After a long hiatus from Evernote, I came looking for the same solution ...how to view notebooks instead of "all notes" on open. So silly is the problem, I thought I must be missing something. I see nothing has changed, no, Evernote is the one missing useful options. I also see, after years, we get the same bad advice and excuses for a poor UI. *sigh* I want soooo bad to enjoy using Evernote, but they make it soooo difficult to. Yes, everyone will use it differently. That's why some time ago,some programming genius came up with the concept of "options". Try it out sometime, Evernote!
  2. I have a similar regard for Evernote. It is a very useful product in the hands of a not so great company. They are great marketers, not necessarily great developers. Good luck getting through to them - they are stubborn as mules when it comes to delivering outdated and clumsy UIs. Apparently they have an entrenched group of people that just cannot comprehend what a good user experience can be, it's been that way for years and unlikely to change soon. You are correct - it is OK but could be SOOOO much better. At this point they are practically begging OneNote to add just a few more key features, and the mass exit begins. You can't beat the price of OneNote either! Competition - it's a wonderful thing. Even though I hate MS, I have zero loyalty to Evernote because they have done nothing to earn it, and I would abandon ship in a second if the OneNote UI matures just a little more - i.e. thumbnail view and searching note images by default (right now you must "authorize" every pic to be searched which is very dumb).
  3. Moto X 4.2.2 Evernote 5.8.1 This can obviously be explained as a "feature" so it's easier to read the searched text. Rather than fix it, thats what I'd go with!
  4. Suspicious? No idea what suspicious would look like. But after the last sync attempt, this is at the bottom of the log which appears pretty non-suspicious to me. Then i went and checked the site again, still no tag. Looks like this is being discussed in another thread as well. --- 20:22:44 [8140] Client synchronization started 20:22:44 [868] 0% Connecting to www.evernote.com/edam/note/s2 20:22:44 [868] 0% Loaded updateCount: 5880 20:22:44 [868] 0% Usage Metrics: sessionCount=0 20:22:44 [868] 0% Client is up to date with the server, updateCount: 5880 20:22:44 [868] 0% Session terminated normally, elapsed time: 0s 20:22:44 [868] 0% * sent: 158B, received: 91B 20:22:44 [5572] 0% Connecting to www.evernote.com/edam/note/s2 20:22:44 [5572] 0% Session terminated normally, elapsed time: 0s 20:22:45 [8140] Client synchronization finished, status: complete 20:22:45 [8140] * elapsed time: 0s
  5. Just checked the web interface.. the tag is not syncing to there either so it's not Android, sorry . The notes are not new, only the tag which I added to 20 some existing notes. They appear on the desktop client just fine.
  6. +1 but unfortunately the good folks at Evernote are busy marketing backbacks and scanners - no time for silly apps with little profit margin. Backbacks! Thats where the action is!
  7. Search results show the highlighting a good distance above the text it's supposed to highlight. No hurry, I know the drill. I`ll check back in a couple years and see if thats been corrected.
  8. I know this has been covered many times over the years but hey if we don't complain maybe the good folks at Evernote will think they actually fixed something. I created a tag on Windows 7, synced, waited a couple hours and the synced the Android app. The new tag isn't there. Yeh, old news. But there it is.
  9. Although I feel the Android UI is horrendous beyond repair, I like the Windows UI and love the stack feature. But I agree the Windows contast, or lack thereof, with white and very light gray is annoying.
  10. Same here. Just spent a half hour re-arranging notebooks and tags to find that the Win7 tags aren't syning to Android.
  11. XJW, 100% resonation As proof positive that even they have some idea this would be the "correct" thing to do, it is how the PC behaves already. And that is not even with the chance of fiddling around with a thin awkward phone in one hand while trying to focus on a conversation at the same time. Thumb fumble onto the OK (to discard) button and all your work vanishes. It is actually silly to even think this has to be requested. Just silly. It's not a hard-to-pin bug, it's not a "feature", it's not some new experimental thing, it's not a crazy off the wall request, it's not like you're asking for EN to be a calculator, or a full blown word processor, you just want the thing to very simply save your note because it's a note app with the slogan "Remember Everything" that doesn't. Yeah, it's resonating. By the way, thanks for submitting. It's a good idea that makes sense, so ... good luck with that.
  12. @Vance I know it doesn't get your money back, but try the Camscanner method above. It finds edges reliably, corrects skew, auto crops, and enhances to a readable flat document very well. I even suggested like 2 years ago to the Camscanner people that they create a specialized version called "Everscan" that would use their "front end" to scan an image directly to Evernote instead of using the PDF "workaround", and mentioned they would have a large user base willing to buy it. Guess they didnt agree or understand. But anyway the workaround works far better than EN's own. Why do I have the feeling Page Camera will remain half finished and buggy for quiet some time ... past experience maybe?
  13. Clunky work horse! That is what I was looking for exactly. She works hard, but she aint pretty and missing a couple teeth. Why don't I offer suggestions? Well that goes back to our long love/hate relationship (I started with the "ticker tape" style Evernote, old school). I still remember clearly when users were absolutely begging for Evernote (desktop version only at that time) to use the now- accepted Notebooks, but Devs were adamantly against it for a long time while trying to push a Tags-only UI because it was "for our own good", apparently. Users simply didn't understand that Tags were the future, Tags were superior, and you WILL use them. Well ... yeh we got Notebooks with a fight but that superior thinking has not changed much. I also saw other very good ideas from others shot down, so that turned me off with having a discussion, while constantly looking for new alternatives. But, like we know, they have the lock on image search so I just keep bearing with it, all the while crossing my fingers they hire some decent UI designers along the way, or some other company finally invests in image text recognition. To be fair, I think the desktop is pretty good now. For now, on Android, my lowly common-folk opinion is that Keep isnt much better, as it looks like a child designed it with crayons. Catch is designed right but under-featured. Gnotes is actually pretty good for what it is, but lacks a long-term goal and I think it's just a couple people working on it with terrible English support. Springpad seems to be in it's own universe and I`m not even sure it's a competitor. I find it awkwardly designed and hard to use as well. So for now, yes, Evernote remains on top. But straighten your game Evernote or soon you will be dethrowned, probably by Keep because they have the cash, developers, and desire to have everyone's info stored on Google servers. Love a good rant. But believe me this only has my attention for a few days and then I`ll go back to the silent majority, letting the loud minority do their part in messing it up, just like politics.
  14. Amaigus, Amen. I have had a love/hate relationship with EN desktop and now Android for a long time. But more especially Android. It seems they take work from different teams and mish-mash it together with no regard for "user experience". "Workflow" is not something high on the EN list of importance. EN is so darn useful at *some* things that I finally broke down and paid for premium even after swearing it off for a couple of years now. However, even (or especially) with the v5 "update" it looks like a step back to ...er, ... some other era or something I cant even define other than outdated, ugly, and work-flow smothering. I really just dont understand where they are getting their UI direction from. Whoever they are, STOP taking their advice, they will be your downfall. If it mostly comes down to one employee in charge of design, fire him/her yesterday. If a group is in charge, start drug testing. I have a feeling large amounts of sedatives are involved because the UI makes me tired. You want an amazing UI experience from people that actually understand work flow? Take a few pointers from Catch. Unfortunately, although beautifully designed, Catch hasn't quite caught up to EN's features but is gaining ground. If Catch had the image and document search capabilities of EN, I'd be gone quicker than you can say "elephant".
