  1. Hi, Currently there are three options in the UI to control which reminders are shown, i.e. 1. sort by date; 2. show upcoming; 3. show completed. Checking the "sort by date" option and unchecking other two options shows only tasks that are overdue or due today. But if there are unscheduled tasks they also appear on this "today task" list. So in order to have shown only today tasks we need just one additional option (i.e. "show unscheduled" options) which if unchecked would hide unscheduled tasks. Please consider adding it along the current options. Thanks
  2. Will somebody please confirm that opening a PDF file from an existing note and editing it in Skitch will save the updated PDF file back to the note ans sync to Evernote. Thanks
  3. I was also concerned that EN performance would deteriorate due to a large number of pdf files and I am glad that has not been the case. I have about 1200 paper x 30 pages on average + 200 books x 300 pages = 96,000 pages. And as I noted previosly, my database is about 2,3 GB. So I do not think so that the database size would be an issue for regular pdf files. Pdf files with scanned pages are another matter as they can be large. Regarding the performance, I have no issues on three years old and underpowered Acer 1410 as well as as Galaxy Nexus. I am attaching a screen shot just to illustrate how nice is to have articles in Evernote (tagging, preview, comments, links to related papers...).
  4. I put all my pdf files in Evernote. It works really well and in my opinion is only way to do it if you deal with hundreds of pdf files. When adding papers to Evernote import folder I put article title, first author, journal abbreviation and year in the file name and it automatically appears in the note title. This helps to easily find articles without tagging, e.g. searching intitle:jof intitle:2010 returns all Journal of Finance articles published in 2010... Searching for intitle:author returns articles written by author etc. Having all pdf files in Evernote offers countless benefits, e.g. - you can link related articles - you can search for say "Jon Doe (2010)" to get all articles that reference it - scanned (non text) articles become searchable - you can tag articles - you can write comments next to pdf files - you can put related Excel of Word file next to a pdf files - all changes made to pdf files (e.g. highlightings) get automatically synced I currently have over 1000 papers and about 200 ebooks in my Evernote database. Searching is fast as ever and my database is 2.3 GB Regarding import, it is a matter of seconds on Widnows - just set up the import folder and copy all pdf files in it (Tools/Import Folders).
  5. Most of my attachments are pdf files. I use RepliGo reader which annotates pdf files just as desktop programs do. There is also EZpdf and I am sure there many other with that functionality. Also, MS Office files can be edited with QuickOffice, Documents to Go etc. So I have a pdf file in a note. I want to simply open, annotate, save it - and have EN sync it (to the note it was opened from) just as it does on Windows. Currently it is possible to, once editing is done, "share" the file to Evernote and get it saved to a new note. But in that case you end up with the original note with the unchanged file, tags etc. and a new note with the changed file, no tags etc. I guess this is because of Android limitations (and iOS as far as I know) but would like to know if anything can be done about it...
  6. I have become heavily dependent on EN functionality to sync changes in attachments after annotating them. Are there any hopes for this functionality to appear on Android any time soon? Is it technically feasible at all on non-desktop OS-s? Thanks
  7. Check out www.zendone.com . It is a GTD based task manager that nicely integrates with Evernote. And it has delegating, postponing etc. functionality. Very, very nice application which stands out of the task managers crowd because of its integration with Evernote. They are still in private beta, but they send invitations if asked nicely on their blog or Twitter.
  8. Just a simple suggestion: implement swipe left and swipe right gestures. On the home screen, swipe left could open search page, swipe right could open note list (if would be nice if users could configure actions). Also, in the note view, swipe right could open next note... This could be an additional navigation option for users who prefer swiping to tapping buttons
  9. I have aready added my own 2 cents to this topic so let me quote nobody else but Evernote: "Search bars that only search are so…yesterday. The new Evernote for Android search bar is an extreme multi-tasker. Not only can it do the usual keyword and image searching, but it can also help filter tags, notebooks and saved searches. As you type, the search bar displays suggestions from every corner of your Evernote account, along with helpful icons that show you what the item is." .png] To avoid plagiarism charges I am also posting the source link: http://blog.evernote.com/2010/05/28/eve ... jor-fixes/
  10. I agree. For a sophisticated piece of software which is continuously updated as Evernote, it is hard to believe how primitive is the search experience. Do not get me wrongly, I am a big fan of Evenote (and a premium user) and use it on three PCs, Android phone and Kindle, but when it comes to the user experience in searching, it is at a way, way, lower level than other Evernote's functionalities. Let me give a few a examples. - I want to search only in titles, so I have to manually type in intitle: - Evernote does not remember searches so I type in something like intitle:scheicher (that is author's name), next time I want to perform the same search I have to type it again (yes, I heard of saved searches and other workarounds, but workarounds are not the point here) - I want to search for notes tagged with a particular tag, say "scheicher" is a tag, after annoyance of having to type in "tag:", instead of typing just "sc" and getting drop down menu with list of tags that starts with "sc" I have to type the full word. To overcome this I printed out list of my tags. Please Evernote, devote some resources to improving this core functionality. Simple tweaks would greatly improve user experience.
