  1. Posted under my other account. But rest assured, it is ME! (Another thing JMiU can appreciate!) Carry on! Nope, they never removed. me. Sorry to disappoint. Yeah. Ok. Whatever. Right. You win. Not really. I'm just not interested in continuing this dickering with you. But hey, it's just like old times... One last parting word... NOISE!!! (JMiU can appreciate that.)
  2. A little late to the game, JMiU. But thanks for playing. Sorry, you are late to the game as well. Perhaps you & JMiU could get a group rate on tutorials on how to read a thread. Clearly you missed this post (emphasis mine for those who find it difficult to follow a thread): But thanks to you, too for playing! Better luck next time. WRT OP's post being unclear...again, if you thoroughly read the post, you would see that *I* was not the one saying OP's post was unclear...

  4. The Evernote of the past couple of years seems to be totally different from the Evernote of 2008-~2013. Certainly distancing themselves from their customers is a very noticeable difference. About three months ago, my last premium account expired & I have renewed none of them & don't plan to. I used to use Evernote at least once every hour I was on the computer, iPad, iPhone, etc. and often more than that. These days, I never open the app & use only the web version maybe three times a month to look up an old note. Prior to 2008, Evernote used to be a Windows only, payware, non-cloud app. People loved it but not enough people loved it enough to support the company. They were ready to close their doors when they took a different direction... Being a multi-platform cloud app. I'm guessing it's deja vu all over again in that millions of people loved it, but not enough people loved it to pay for it & sustain the company... IDK, but certainly they have taken a different direction & are no longer concerned about being a 100 year company (b/c the issue of large databases not scaling well - to the point where the app becomes totally unusable, b/c the same search across different platforms yields different results, b/c record counts differ across different platforms, etc) and appear to be focusing on more of a business use. I truly miss what Evernote used to be to me & what it would have continued to be for me, had they addressed some of the issues I've mentioned here & in other threads. I used to be the poster child for using Evernote. But no more. I've yet to find an alternative that works well. But at least the apps I'm forced to now use work, even if it's a cobbled together thing. Whereas Evernote became 100% unusable to me on my idevices and my PC.
  5. Oh, sorry, my bad. No one needs to ask me. I just do it. You're very welcome. Yeah, as CSHilling says...check the email address you typed in. Sounds like that's the problem - typed in wrong. User error. How silly would THAT be!
  6. Ummm....if you have a free account, it's not stupid at all, since you can no longer email to free accounts. It's undeliverable not b/c of the email address, but because it's not a part of your service.
  7. So JMiU still feels the need to make unnecessary NOISE and stick it to those he doesn't like. (Sigh). Some things never change.
  8. https://blog.evernote.com/blog/2015/09/29/a-note-from-chris-oneill/ While I'm sorry for those who have lost their jobs, this is the first positive thing I've seen from Evernote in a couple of years now. However, I don't want to be overly optimistic... but if he follows through on this, it may be that Evernote will be returning to it's core product and one that I would consider paying for once again. Hopefully, the scalability issue will be addressed. I suspect that one is not an easy task & will take a year or so. Keeping my fingers crossed...
  9. I understood your request from the first post. I don't know how to say it any more clearly. Any changes to synced notes needs to be synced to the Evernote servers (cloud). Since Evernote's usage is based upon UPLOAD (not the amount stored in the clouds say like Dropbox), then any changes to synced notes needs to go against your upload amount. If you've used it all up, you will need to wait until your upload refreshes (or upgrade your account to a larger upload amount).
  10. Regardless of your opinion on Gaz's replies, right there is your answer. It's Evernote's product and if they choose to not implement any stronger/better encryption, it's certainly their choice, If it's a deal breaker for anyone, then it's the user's choice to use an app that better suits their needs.
  11. Changes to synced notes would need to be synced to the servers. How else would those changes be replicated to any other computers/devices you use?
  12. Hey! Even better! So put your money where your mouth is and do it your own darn self, if you think it's such a great idea! There are all these people posting in this thread that I'm sure will back you up financially. Make it happen!!! Git'er done!
  13. Sorry, but Metrodon (bank robber?) is correct. Offline access to notes has NEVER been free except when notes were cached or individual notes were "favorited". And favorites have been gone for many years. Here's proof ( see link below) by way of someone else complaining in July. 2013 and that thread links to a similar complaint in October 2010. https://discussion.evernote.com/topic/39907-used-to-have-offline-access-to-notes-without-premium/
  14. Indeed. How about instead, those who think that one already struggling (and clearly troubled) company buying a defunct app is a recipe for success, buying IQTell themselves and doing the integration, using Evernote's API???
  15. Yes, it's very old hat. Discussed a lot, already. No longer a service for free accounts. Please use the search function for more information.
  16. First, beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Hideous??? Seriously??? Second, some of us prefer function over form. I prefer an app that does what I want it to do. I And no, this is not the 80's view. I suspect you are much too young to have experienced 80's apps...since they didn't exist except on larger, personal computers and were mostly character based. But thanks for playing.
  17. As an A/R-O/C personality...what's wrong with that??? Seriously though, for backing up important files on my personal computer(s), I've run the gamut from HP Colorado Trakker tape drives, to Ditto Zip drives, Jag Drives, CDs, DVDs, external drives and clouds. My mantra has been a girl can never be too rich or have too many backups. So although I didn't treat Evernote as a backup target, I did often include files that are duplicated on my hard drive. IE, scans of bills, newsletters, personal letters sent/received, etc. In my case, when I used Evernote, due to the way I utilized the powerful Evernote search engine, it was FASTER for me to find a utility bill from three years ago in Evernote (like 5 seconds or less) rather than drilling down on my hard drive to drive/scans/bills/2012/utilities/FILE. But then I ran into the dreaded scalability issue...and migrated away from Evernote. But honestly, IMO, this is just one more thing that has caused me to lose (more) confidence in Evernote the company. Surely the word 'unlimited' is very clear to most people and certainly to all for whom English is a first language. The fact that "they" didn't anticipate this could/would be a possible reaction says to me that whoever was in charge of rolling this out was either a novice or Peter-Principled. IMO, this qualifies as one of the dumbest missteps. JMO...
  18. No, I'm not missing the point. You have had access to something you used 2-6 times a month, for five years and feel like it's your God given right to have access to that feature, for free, until the end of time. Clearly, their past endeavors have not apparently worked to make the company sustainable. Your attitude of entitlement shows you'd rather not pay a single cent for something that is useful enough to you that you felt the need to come here & complain, even if it means the failure of Evernote as a company & therefore a loss to all the other users, including the ones who have paid.
  19. Absa-freakin-lutely unbelievable. Actually, this attitude is so over the top, I suspect the poster is really just a troll. But in case EB truly feels this way... First, I don't know why you, as a non-paying user, feel you can dictate what Evernote (or any other company) does or does not do, should or should not do. Second, I'm sure the loss of a non-paying customer is not something that the folks at Evernote will lose any sleep over. Third... And in closing, good luck with finding an app that better suits your needs.
  20. He is soooooo predictable. ;-) My work here is done.
  21. https://discussion.evernote.com/topic/30153-request-change-search-grammar-to-include-child-tags-of-specified-parent-tag/page-3#entry371624 A clear win, no? Nope. More like "I got nothing but need the last word".
  22. Um, yeah...riiiiight... JMichaelUnderwood never has a "mini" battle of wills.
  23. ??? But not surprising since you have dismissed Workflowy without really knowing what its capabilities are.
  24. Networked drives are not supported. https://www.evernote.com/shard/s137/sh/9a5b37ca-4c3e-473d-bf90-816c7f4ce2b6/f4da0c331e6c19a9795c300a06246899
