  1. (Thank you, BurgersNFries, for posting the Guardian link. Yep, that's where I saw it—Flipboarded…but I wasn't sure whether this was one of those forums in which posting links is allowed. I always try to be on best behavior.) I agree with comments here perceiving EN's increasing monetization. It's a sad thing for me to see. I bought my Premium subscription originally, not because I needed what it offered, but rather, to show my support for a favored product. Little did I know. When the "Evernote Lifestyle" (Marketplace) reared its ugly head, I began to get suspicious. In my mind, EN is losing touch with its roots. Me? I stumbled upon EN when Google killed its Notebooks app. I wanted, simply, a place to take and sync notes. Now EN has become an "ecosystem". Matter of taste—I certainly don't fault or intend to offend those who enjoy an "ecosystem". But when I need to get an add-on like QuickEver for a quick-start note-taker, somehow, I miss "the old days". I question my Premium investment, and especially, a price bump.
  2. Any projections on how much it’ll change for users in the USA? I ass-u-me we’d get a notice before auto-renewal along with the option of opting out of any price increase…
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. This will promote efficiency (for me, at least—and I suspect for others as well). Some folks may prefer Evernote to start up with the (customized) “Home screen” every time. Some, a list of notes (either icons or snippets, sorted by date or by title…whatever). Some may at some times prefer creation of *some* type of note—armed and ready, as it were. And some may prefer, of course, “start where I left off”. Lots of possibilities. Folks have different tastes, different needs. It would be very nice to have a Preference to control this, explicitly. On ALL platforms, of course!
  6. 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.
  7. 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.)
  8. 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!
  9. 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! :-)
  10. 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.)
  11. 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?
  12. Many days (months?) later, FWIW, I did it. I'm among the few, the proud, the premes. Que viva, Evernote!
  13. For iOS, as I described, QuickEver works fine. I was merely suggesting that the Evernote folks *themselves* incorporate this as one possible way to call up Evernote — whether it be in iOS, on MacOSX, Windows, or wherever... A hard thing for me to describe, but I'm thinking of a way to open Evernote with a blank note and *without* all the other bells and whistles, so to speak.
  14. There is need for a quick-start note-taking utility. If I recall correctly, Evernote *used to be* just that: starting up lightning fast as an open blank slate, ready for note-taking. Now, of course, with many options and features, Evernote opens more slowly to reveal a vast array of folders, navigation, and other options. What I'd like to see is, a quick, lightning fast, blank slate, for typing a note on the fly. Let it be set-and-forget, with userid/password and default Evernote notebook, and *that's it*! Let it open as quickly as, for example, Notes or Stickies on MacOSX. Evernote might also look into the "QuickEver" app published for iPads, which does a thing very similar to this request. Just simple and *very* quick. No heavy word-processing/formatting involved! A blank slate. And for *typists*, not touch-drawers such as Penultimate users. Okay?
  15. A conflicting files resolution utility would include two items: Visible line-by-line comparison of the two synced files, showing differences. (This is usually, at least in my case, at most two or three items/file lines.) This would allow the file owner quickly to copy/paste in order to resolve conflicts. Perhaps even there could be an option to select one version of the file over the other. Then, the option to save, system- and Evernote-wide, the selected/constructed version of the file. *If* (as is likely) the "Conflicting-file-[date-time]" folder exists, and the conflict has been resolved, then *automatically* delete the folder and its contained file!Such a feature would avoid much grief for me and, I suspect, for many other "conflicting file" creators!
