  1. For many years, I've been in the habit of carrying, and having quick at hand, a pocket notepad on which to write random notes or doodles. Even while designing a website, I'd write, say, hexadecimal codes calculated for CSS colors or special characters. Or URLs for links. Items for momentary use. When a page was full, I'd rip it out and toss it. Now, I've put the notepad away. I carry an iPhone with Quickever installed. It opens instantly, ready for a note that may be saved to Evernote or trashed, depending upon what circumstances dictate. This is a new habit, a learning process for me. I find that I still grasp for the old paper notepad at first, out of long-established habit. But it's gone. Now I'm reaching for the phone.
  2. Through a chat and a support ticket, I have learned I have absolutely no way to change my Evernote password using my iPad: I must resort to the laptop. No other web service provider (site or app) I use or am aware of suffers this limitation. IMHO it is a security shortcoming. My iPad is my main computing device—even for website design, development, and maintenance—not to mention the customary email, browsing, blogging, etc. I usually whip out the laptop only occasionally for ==>its own<== routine maintenance and backups: it is secondary and incidental. The iPad (and perhaps also iPhone) need more granular administrative control over the Evernote account. I hope the Evernote developers will devote some of my Premium funding to this pursuit with due haste.
  3. Ah well, reckon I should’ve said. Sorry for creating confusion. Guess an iPad is a child device rather than a peer for Evernote purposes. Thanks.
  4. Unfortunately, the possibilities you mention do not seem to be available on my iPad AFAIK. (Off-topic, FWIW: my iPad is my main squeeze even for website maintenance: the laptop comes out only for periodic updates, syncs, and backups.)
  5. When I copy content from elsewhere and paste it into Evernote, not only is the *content* copied, but also the *formatting*. That including, font-size, font-family, color, and everything else. All I want is the content. As I’ve noted in other posts here (and as I see for myself in the preferences), Evernote itself offers no user control over fonts. Thus I cannot alter the appearance of pasted content. I end up with some notes in 16px Helvetica, some in 8px Times, some in 12px Verdana…and on, and on. I would truly appreciate a little help in this. A little consistency. All it would take, for example, is a Preference for pasting Content without Formatting!
  6. Well, okay, folks. No, I haven't tried PostEver, and probably won't. But I supported the devs at FastEver with my 2 bucks each for iPhone and iPad. What the heck? The comparison? Very similar. One might say FastEver is available for typing a half of a blink of an eye more quickly than QuickEver. But that's quicker (or faster, depending on how you look at it) than I can get my fingers to start typing, so the difference at that point is purely cosmetic and visual. As for function. One thing I prefer about QuickEver (so far) is swiping to move the cursor. All I could get FastEver to do on swipe was move a character at a time left or right, where QuickEver easily switches from character movement to smooth movement across broader expanses of text: a time-saver. Quickever has a list inserter prominently displayed on its slide-out function bar; I haven't yet found how to add a list in FastEver (aside from repeated CR). So that's the word from an *old* QuickEver user and a *new* FastEver user. I'm enjoying all your comments. I truly thank you for weighing in! :-)
  7. I deduce that you (with FastEver) like me (with QuickEver) are using the apps for the same thing? That being, the *very quick* taking of a simple bit of text to be shipped off to Evernote? Is that right? (I *really* appreciate, as I suspect you do, the way the app opens lightning quick to a very simple typing space. I truly hope the developer doesn't try to fancify it and thus slow it down.)
  8. I have QuickEver on both my iPad and my iPhone, and am very pleased with it. (I'm amazed that such ability isn't native to Evernote.) Today, as I occasionally do, I checked in at the Trunk. I saw an app named FastEver which seems to do the same thing. Am I right? Is either one better than the other? Are there substantial differences? Should I *bother* to download FastEver and compare?
