  1. [Android] This comments started by saying the "double tap to edit" feature makes it too easy to accidentally open 'edit mode' and requesting to turn that off, because there is a floating button already available anyway. And that is true.....However, I tried measuring the time interval between taps for the double tap and discovered you don't need to double tap.....just a single tap anywhere, wait 3 seconds, and you are in edit mode! SINGLE TAP!! That makes it WAY TOO EASY to go into edit mode, and has led to inadvertently editing (butt-pressing) the contents of notes and has led to total loss of note contents. (Somehow by butt-pressing "select all" and then one keystroke overwrites the contents.) So, please make entering edit mode require a press on the floating pencil icon only. That would be much simpler and more secure. (This behaviour is worsened by the 'always on' behaviour of Evernote Android which makes the time of exposure to such a risk much, much longer.)
  2. "Keep on" can be a beneficial feature some of the time (e.g. referring to a recipe), but other times it is a menace, and definitely should be an option, where the default is to power off normally, and a button could be added as a "hold open mode" in specific cases, upon request, and a user setting should be added to set up default behaviour. This is an even bigger problem with Android because it combines with the "double tap to edit" feature which makes it too easy to accidentally open edit mode. (Wish we could turn THAT off, too, because there is a floating button already available anyway.) Due to both of these "features" I often run into the problem of leaving the phone on in my pocket (it does not auto off) and then butt-selecting (think butt-dialing) the text and replacing it with nonsense....UPDATE: while writing this I tested to see the double-tap to measure the time interval between taps and discovered it does not need a double-tap....just a single tap, wait 3 seconds, and you are in edit mode! WAY too easy to pop into edit note when reading or scrolling a note to read it! (I should start another thread on this...)
