  1. I can't imagine why anyone would use Evernote as a photo organizer. There are so many other, better options that are designed for that purpose.
  2. Don't give Adobe any money if all you want to do is rotate a PDF. (I'm not a fan of Adobe...) Several PDF viewers allow you to rotate & save. The free version of PDF Xchange viewer not only allows you to rotate, but you can password protect AND...password encrypt a PDF too. http://www.tracker-software.com/product/pdf-xchange-viewer
  3. For some reason unknown to me, EN has chosen to remove the clear & obvious indications that notebooks are local/sync'd or shared.
  4. Would you say that you have a positive experience or just that you don't have a horrible experience? Personally I find them hard to work with – perhaps my fingers put me at a disadvantage here, but they aren't particularly big fingers! I would say my experience is positive and I use them (checkboxes) several times a week. I would say that if someone has large fingers & is using an iPhone that that could be a disadvantage. But my point here is that not everyone has this same "horrible" experience.
  5. To re-reiterate & be extremely clear..."zero knowledge" encryption is mutually exclusive from one of Evernote's main draws which is indexing your data. So although they may add this in the future, it's not their main focus. If you want total zero knowledge encryption, you should seek out a backup program. There are several very good ones out there. Evernote is not a backup program, nor are they striving to be. There really is nothing more I have to add.
  6. I don't believe anyone said you wrote about data mining...??? Evernote is not & I doubt they ever will be HIPAA compliant, which I believe is a requirement for the medical industry.
  7. Please read the thread I linked to above. It's thorough & I'm not inclined to rewrite what I've already written. If you want a simple yes/no answer, then it's really simple...if you don't want a hacker getting your data, then don't put it in any cloud unless it is encrypted with an encryption key that is not known to the hosting company. I use Amazon S3 servers for this. But Evernote is not a backup app...it indexes your data & cannot do this if the data is truly & securely encrypted.
  8. Evernote does not data mine. If your data is encrypted on the EN servers, it cannot be indexed, which is a big part of Evernote's appeal. If you say to use your logon password as part of the encryption password, then that's not much more secure than no encryption. You may find this old thread informative.
  9. AFAIK, there is no way to avoid this, I merge notes all the time & find while it's a bit annoying, it's not all that difficult or time consuming to remove any offending headers/lines/spacing.
  10. Please post your ticket numbers here so someone can follow up.
  11. Well, as this is your first post, maybe you are in the wrong class. Or maybe you need to learn more about the apps & what they can or cannot do before condemning them. There are plenty of uses for Evernote that do not include arranging notes manually. However, I'm easily able to copy/paste screen shots into my notebooks. Or arrange the photos within the notes. There is plenty of information here on the board about how to use EN, if you're interested. Good luck.
  12. It's really tiring when someone attributes inaccurate info to other users. I'm pretty certain no evangelist ever said a diff is not required. Please link to any post you've found that does make such a claim. Unless & until you do, it appears you are twisting words to suit your own agenda & is just a cheap pot shot and, well, laughable. (To use your own word). Thank you.
  13. Evernote should always be available from the App Store. Do you see EN in the App Store? If so, do you tap buy/install (I forget the exact verbiage when it's an app you've already installed). If so, what happens? What version iPhone do you have? What version OS is it running? I think Evernote is only available for iOS 7. If you're not using 7 and you had Evernote previously & have an iTunes backup, you may be able to get the old version from your backup, IDK. You need to be more specific.
  14. On the Windows client, you can utilize import folders when scanning, rather than exporting the scans from Evernote. Please search the board on import folders, if you need more information. Import folders only exist on the Windows client. However, there is a third party workaround for the Mac client.
  15. Evernote is a cloud app. They are very clear about this. That's what attracts many people to it. It is not part of some hidden agenda. I'm glad you found something that works for you. But you are like someone who buys a sportscar & then complains b/c there is no room for your kids & their dog & their sports equipment. That doesn't mean a sportscar is a bad thing, so lambasting the sportscar is just plain silly.. All it means is that a sportscar is not for you. Good luck. You can delete all notes, empty the trash & sync. This will remove your data from the cloud. You can set up a throw away email address & change the account email address to that. To completely delete your account, you will need to submit a support ticket.
  16. Well...maybe because I am not an Evernote employee and cannot testify as to what will or will not be included in newer versions of the software... As a user, just like yourself, I have no more (or less) influence on what EN will do. So yes, as far as how the software works, it is what it is. We can either learn to adapt to things we think are idiosyncrasies (like not being able to delete dozens of notebooks in one fell swoop) or find an app that better suits our needs.
  17. JMichael, I don't know why, but you often (always) feel compelled to continuously object to & nitpick posts by the evangelists. I find this very sad b/c the evangelists are the ones who tirelessly help others, unlike those who find pleasure/satisfaction from belittling them. Perhaps there's a bit of evangelist envy going on there. I don't know. But it's really very sad. I'm sure this will come as a surprise to you, but I fully understand the feature request. If you were to read my post, you will see I was addressing the fact that another user considers this feature 'basic'...because you also regularly twist what we post to suit your agenda. Please cite where I (or anyone) has objected to this feature. I eagerly await your citations so that I know you are speaking the truth & simply not (yet again) twisting what was said to suit your purposes.
  18. Yes, well nice try at diverting attention from the issues at hand by using broad (and inaccurate I would add) generalizations. But no cigar.
  19. Things that are "basic" differ for each user. I've been using EN for six years, have over 63,000 notes in my main account (I have a few other EN accounts), use EN every single day, pretty much every single hour I'm on the computer & then some) and have yet to find the lack of being able to sort text in a note a detriment. I can't even say I would have ever even used this feature, if it existed. Maybe if you need a motorcycle, you should get a motorcycle instead of a car.
  20. Evernote is a cloud app. They are very clear about this. That's what attracts many people to it. It is not part of some hidden agenda. I'm glad you found something that works for you.

  21. First, AFAIK, no one even knows if this is on their to do list. Second, I'm pretty sure there is no way to force them to do anything. If it makes you feel better, you could boycott them & use another app. Good luck.
  22. Log into the web client & check your usage there. Since the EN servers are where the upload is controlled, you must sync your desktop client so it knows there has been a refresh. It may be that you added/modified enough notes that you already maxxed out your new monthly upload limit. (Which is why you need to check via the web client.)
