  1. For those, like me, who have become disgruntled Evernoters (in my case, Premium since mid-2008), and who have been sorely disappointed with these latest "upgrades" to v10 on all platforms, I've been searching for a suitable alternative. I've been looking for something that does what Evernote has traditionally done well - act as a brain/memory extension. I've played with Notion, DevonThink, OneNote, Apple Notes, Roam Research, and a few others. None of these quite fits the bill as a close Evernote replacement, either on my Macs, on my work Win10 PC, my iPad, or my iPhone. In each of t

  3. Thanks for the suggestions - appreciated. I'm currently trying DevonThink, Apple Notes, and Notion. But today I came across one I'd not heard of, and it looks very promising. It's called Notejoy. It does do offline notes on the Mac and Windows, but not yet on mobile devices (I need them there too) - but that is coming. Of the ones I'm trying, so far, Notejoy is looking the most appealing. https://notejoy.com/ and https://notejoy.com/features
  4. I have Notion installed, and have imported my Evernote database to it. But I'm trying to run the two in parallel until I'm confident in Notion before severing the Evernote umbilical cord. My Mac EN is v7.14 - not upgrading what works - but my iOS versions upgraded automatically, and are screwed as per the previous posters on this thread. However, Notion does NOT support local or offline notebooks, and I frequently do NOT have an Internet connection, so absolutely need to have those notes stored locally on my devices (all of which have loads of space on them). Also, no email forwardi
  5. I take "Save data at logout" to mean exactly that - it saves the data to the Evernote servers when you log out. However, I suspect what the OP may be referring to is Offline notebooks. When he talks about "entire database downloaded locally", I'm assuming he's talking about all notebooks downloading onto the local device so that it can be used offline. I'm not on the new version - I'm sticking with v7.14 - but I gather that offline notebooks ARE still supported, but LOCAL notebooks aren't supported any more. I find that very confusing, but from what I've been able to work out, offline
  6. I'll give that one half a "Phewww!" Very confusing terminology there. Yes, most of what I need are OFFLINE notebooks - which I call local. True LOCAL notebooks, that are not synced, are also needed though, for example on my office iMac, I don't need or want all my personal stuff, but I DO need and want all my work-related stuff (eg journal references and clips). I keep most of those in a true LOCAL notebook that never syncs to the EN servers, but gets backed up on my regular scheduled backup routine (twice a day) to a local and a LAN drive. However, I also see from a couple of other
  7. WHAT??? Local notebooks NOT supported? Did I read that right? So my iPhone XS Max with 512GB of RAM, and my iPad Pro with 256GB RAM are now useless on a plane, for example? Or anywhere where I do NOT have an Internet connection? Why on earth would you deprecate local notebooks? My entire several thousand notes are all locally stored on each device, as I do a lot of travelling, and I am frequently in places with no Internet connection. This is Australia, NOT the USA. In the USA you might have always on, always available Internet - but we don't. That is why I do NOT have any sub
  8. Now that you mention it, I'm a bit confused about exactly WHAT the OP reported. I read it as the notes had disappeared from the Web version of EN. The fact that they were still in his Mac OS version may have been just luck that it hadn't synced the deletions from the server, perhaps? The web version would be looking directly at what's on the cloud server, wouldn't it? So I can't see HOW notes can disappear from there without also disappearing from the Mac/Windows/iOS/Android versions too - once they've synced. Bit of a mystery - but Shane seems to be on the case, so I'll keep my iOS
  9. Why not? Surely, if you deliberately delete a note in ANY version of the app, iOS, Mac, Windows, whatever, it will delete off the server. That's usually what you intend to do. So it seems entirely possible that if one version of the app - say the iOS version - is randomly deleting notes, they would get deleted off the cloud server too. Then, next sync of your desktop app, they've gone. I've stopped using my iOS versions of the app and disconnected them, until the problems have been fixed. This is a right royal pain for me, but I'd prefer to live with the limitation of only using
  10. i DID know what you meant. A comma after "released" would have fixed it. Sorry - no offence intended. It was just funny - sounded like "Back To The Future" stuff.
  11. "Will try 10.0.3 that just got released tomorrow." Interesting ambiguity there, PE - sounds like you're forecasting the future Yup - I know what you meant, but I had to read it twice - had a chuckle
  12. Thanks for the reply, Shane. However, couldn't you put a different version number on v8.24.6 or whatever the previous version was, and call it v10.1 or something, that would allow the App Store (and iOS) to read it as a newer version, even though it's just the repackaged previous version? Then we could backgrade, work happily while you guys fix all the bugs without the time pressure, then upgrade to the new version (which would need to be numbered one higher than the pseudo-version 10.1 or whatever) when it's all sorted out. I'm sure you have a long enough list of bugs already from these fo
  13. Really??? Surely you're kidding? You're suggesting that we can actually USE this thing? For what, exactly? I can't clip a note from either Safari (or any other browser) or Flipboard, which is a large part of what I use Evernote for. It simply does not work. The note never gets to Evernote, not even on the same device. It just disappears into thin air. So how can we just get on with exploring it, when it doesn't even work at what it's supposed to do? We need the previous version - it worked! That would then buy time for the EN team to sort out the mess of this release BEFORE r
  14. I agree. When one has so much invested in a program - and I'm talking about content, not money - then when that program becomes unusable, as this new iOS release is, I'm quite OK with posting and reading a few rants. This new iOS version is a disaster. I've been a Premium subscriber almost since Evernote started, and have tolerated many bad updates. But this one is the worst by far. It has rendered both my iPad and iPhone versions of Evernote totally useless, and I've actually taken them offline now for fear of corrupting my main Mac version (v7.14) which continues to work just fine.
  15. Same here, again. If I go to clip an article, on the iPad or the iPhone (both running latest iOS14), the "Share to" function simply does not work. I "clip" the article from Safari or Flipboard, and I get the clip dialog asking me to input a title (as I've said elsewhere - I don't want to be typing titles in while I'm just clipping articles on the fly). Then when I tap on "Save" - nothing happens except that window disappears. The article/website/whatever is NOT synced to Evernote - not even to the local Evernote on the same device. This is seriously broken, and despite CEO Sma
