  1. Does anybody know when Work Chat turned up? It wasn't in earlier 6.X versions, but I just noticed it in 10.0.
  2. I think Evernote just doesn't have enough engineers to write a client for Android which uses the Android APIs for touch screen input. As an experiment, try writing in google notes using a pen on Android -- it's much better than Evernote. Back in the day (up to about the Note 5), Samsung supported Evernote directly in the note-taking app. Unfortunately they stopped and are now even moving to One Note (if i recall correctly).
  3. oh, ok. thanks for looking.
  4. oh, i don't have that yet maybe it will turn up soon. What does it look like? This is what the note headers currently look like for me : I'm on 6.15.0
  5. Hi everybody! Not a bug or technical issue. I was using Evernote yesterday (the web client) and a notification popped up saying that Evernote web now supports reminders. Has anybody else had this? Unfortunately i had to click the notification away quickly before reading all of it 😕
  6. i think the google drive icon is only on the old web version of Evernote. However the new version is progressing quickly, so it may turn up again soon.
  7. Salut! Mon intuition: en capturant un fil Twitter dans Evernote on ne capture qu'un lien vers le fil et non le fil lui-meme. En suite Evernote essaie de télécharger le lien et Twitter reconnait Evernote comme version ancienne du navigateur Firefox grace au User-Agent (https://developer.mozilla.org/de/docs/Web/HTTP/Headers/User-Agent). Qu'est-ce qui arrive si tu colles le fil dans un éditeur de texte par exemple? Bonne journée!
  8. odd. what version of Chrome are you using? I'm on 83 at the moment and Evernote works fine. It's possible you have a note with embedded videos which are automatically being played in the background. I've seen this happen on the Android app, but not on the web version yet.
  9. Yep, i agree with you to 100% there. Back in the distant past, having a separate outgoing page was a way to stop the Referrer-header being set in the outgoing request. Otherwise the page you called would know the exact url of the page you came from. Now that https://html.spec.whatwg.org/multipage/links.html#link-type-noreferrer is implemented in all major browsers, I can't see this being a security concern either.
  10. Btw, the function that is being called here is called "urlencode". Most languages have the function somewhere in their standard libraries. The point of the function is to allow embedding a url inside a url. If you look at the url in the address bar of the external link page, you'll see something like: https://www.evernote.com/OutboundRedirect.action?dest=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.google.com I imagine the browser is just displaying the value of the "dest" get-parameter without running a urldecode on the result. This should be easy enough to fix.
  11. If anyone's interested, the history of allowing unfettered access to the operating system from code running in the web browser is less than glorious: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ActiveX (particularly frightening: ... Internet Explorer maintains a blacklist of bad controls ...)
  12. I think Evernote has had a thankless task. When they started out there was no hope of consolidating their applications to one code base: web apis just weren't up to it and there was no way even to write an app which would run on iOS and Android. This resulted in lots of teams writing apps for lots of different platforms (blackberry os 6/7 and blackberry os 10, anybody?). And evernote as an app is pretty complicated with synchronisation and handwriting recognition and a chat service and lots of other stuff too. Re-engineering on one code base is something I really wouldn't like to try. As a server programmer I have the great advantage that I only have to support Linux (because of Docker). One code base for complex logic on iOS/Android/Windows/OS X/Linux(?) is still really tricky. If I were Evernote i'd be tempted to put a lot of eggs in the Flutter basket and let the native apps for Windows and OS X lie fallow for a while until Flutter Native is usable. Maybe Evernote hasn't yet got to the stage of thinking about the next step in its journey, presuming the huge refactoring effort succeeds. We're certainly living in interesting times for the company.
  13. It might be interesting to have a page here in the forum detailing the latest versions of evernote web beta in various browsers / operating systems. For example, on my Chromebook and my Ubuntu laptop (both running chrome browser) i'm on 6.11.0 at the moment.
  14. If anyone's interested as to why this change in requirements was made, I presume it was because Android 5 made the OS webview component updateable over the play store. The webview component is the operating system's html/css rendering engine and javascript interpreter. Often apps for Android (and indeed for iOS as far as i know) use the system webview to allow code reuse between web versions of a software and Android/iOS versions. In the course of the last decade Google has moved increasing numbers of operating system components to the play store. Email, SMS apps, image browsers, fonts, keyboards, the webview component itself and many other components are all updated regularly. This greatly increases security and arguably makes an Android device running Android 5.0 safer than the newest iOS device, where the users often have to wait months before bugs in system components are fixed.
  15. Ctrl-Z not working makes me suspicious. Are you using a different keyboard layout to the physical keyboard? Evernote Web had a bug until a couple of months ago (on chrome) whereby the physical keyboard keys were used for shortcuts. Because I use dvorak keyboard layout this broke the majority of keyboard shortcuts. The bug has since been fixed on chrome, but if you're using another browser it's possible you're being served an earlier version of evernote web.
