  1. I agree the new version totally sucks. I have been a user since 2005 and paid customer for over 10 years. It's outrageous they would even consider foisting this stripped, basic junk on their customers. The tree analogy above is excellent. 😠 There's a very good thread on this forum and Reddit that lists alternatives to try. If you are unhappy with this forced downgrade, I suggest looking at all the different options out there. There's a lot. For me, Nimbus Notes and Standard Notes are what I will probably be moving to. Nimbus has a sweet deal on Appsumo right now that I took advantage of. Both of these encrypt all your data even at rest. I think confidentiality is important.
  2. I recently upgraded Evernote to v10 without realizing what a joke it is. Totally unacceptable. I agree with the poster above that said the company is way too arrogant and ignores their customers. This is not the first time I've been unhappy with dubious Evernote changes so I looked around at other options (again). I haven't spent a huge amount of time with it, but Nimbus seems pretty nifty. Seems to do most things Evernote does. I like the organization scheme and appreciate that all the data is encrypted in transmission and during storage. I think security is a extremely important and Evernote has really dropped the ball on this issue IMHO. I purchased the lifetime deal on Appsumo for $59. Seems like a no-brainer to me. 👍😀 I also like Standard Notes. I installed it a couple of years ago and use the free version occasionally. It works pretty well for me for basic notes and again, the encryption is great. I understand on Black Friday they offer a 50% discount so I might get the five year plan for that also. I sense it's time to move on from EN. I've been using it since 2005 and a paid customer for over 10 years.
  3. Web Clipper for Chrome in Windows is not working for me at all. Clicking on the elephant icon does nothing now. I reinstalled it and still not working. Chrome: 65.0.3325.181 (Official Build) (64-bit)
  4. I absolutely want much stronger encryption options in Evernote. I already have started using other applications now because of this issue like many other people in this thread. I do not want Evernote employees or anyone else reading my notes. This should be a major priority to implement - especially after the privacy policy debacle this week. "Machine Learning" should not absolutely not be the focus of future development. That is so absurd, I can't even believe some people at Evernote think that is a good idea. Evernote really needs to get back on track. I believe Evernote is out of touch with regard to what customers want and need.
  5. I'm happy because Turle sounds very promising. I haven't tried it yet, but I intend to check it out. I like more options in the marketplace. If Turle meets my needs, offers more privacy/security and is affordable, I may switch to it. To remain competitive, Evernote needs to add features that people want - like better encryption and security. I believe that Evernote has lost touch with its customers. Their attitude has become somewhat antagonistic and I don't really understand it from a business point of view. IMHO the past year has been a disaster for them. Frankly, they better realize these things, or they won't be around much longer.
  6. I appreciate that Evernote quickly realized their mistake and listened to their customers in this instance. However, I would still like to see more work done on encryption features and much stronger privacy policies going forward. Marketing focus groups and public dialog about proposed changes would greatly benefit you in the future. This is the second debacle in the past six months. Your company cannot keep doing this and expect people to stick around.
  7. I am happy to hear about Turtl. I sincerely hope that Evernote now realizes how important privacy is to their customers and offers much stronger encryption features in the future. We really should never have to worry about Evernote employees (or anyone else) snooping around our notes. Notebook level encryption should have been a top priority years ago!
