  1. I use accounts in google chrome so second clipper might work. I wish EN offered this as an option. Sigh. As a side, I've been using Nimbus and it's pretty good. But, and this is gonna sound crazy, although EN has changed a lot, I trust them more for the long run. Just not sure what the long term nimbus plan is.
  2. I've been messing with Nimbus and one great feature is that it allows you to have entirely separate workspaces in the paid account. I have an evernote personal account and would like to use EN for work, but I absolutely don't want to mix my notes and tags. Short of buying evernote teams, which I am not going to do - I don't think that there is a way to have two workspaces. It's kind of a shame. I wonder if a dumb work around is to create a separate evernote account (free one) for work. I then wonder, what happens to the clipper - will it select for the correct account. Let me know if this is a pointless quest, and I might stick with Nimbus....
  3. Hi I have a few quick comments (I am on MAC OS) First - great work. The implementation is excellent and has lots of potential. Can you provide the option to hide notes that have completed tasks? For example - I have a single note with the task: * follow up on this with Bob. Once I've completed the task, I no longer need to see the note, or the task in the task list. Currently, all I can do is make the task go to the bottom. Is there a way to make the "add new task" option take up less space? The vertical list of tasks in the task window is rather spread out. In evernote webclipper could I assign a task to a web clipping. For example - I clip an email and put on it a task - follow up with bob on this email. Currently I have to clip the email, then go to evernote and assign a task. Any options for different colored flags? So we could flag for priority etc? When I click on a task it brings up the note. Could it be possible to keep the task list in the middle column and show the note in the right hand column? Currently, the task list goes away and is replaced by the note. If I am working through tasks doing a quick review it would be nice to click on each task and see the note without losing the task list. This would be very annoying for a very long task list. Anyhow - just a few suggestions from someone who's been using EN since 2008!
  4. I wondered this as well. For example, I need to be able to use a #waitingfor tag on things. I found that you can just add the words #waitingfor on to the end of the task and then filter them. It works pretty well.
  5. This looks great - just exploring it. Is there a way to pin tasks to the home page?
  6. I'll second the comments about apple notes. It's the roach motel of note systems - once you check in, you're not going to check out (without a lot of cut and pasting). Apple notes wins because it is so simple. But the counter is that it is infuriating in terms of the basic things it doesn't do. On the plus side for better or worse, apple doesn't change it dramatically like EN, so if you can get used to its limitations, you can settle in for the long haul.
  7. Yes and I like it. A lot. Damn you evernote.... I guess I am being sucked back in...
  8. So I left evernote last year. Migrated to Apple notes. For many things notes works great - basically for storage. But fast forward to today. I have two things I am trying to do. 1. Book a vacation (flights, destinations, airbnb) 2. Buy a car - compare options, financing, record the dates that I lifted credit freezes etc. Turns out EN is soooo much easier to use for these kind of projects. Three things stand out. 1. Web clipper. It dominates any other application. It really does. 2. Linking notes. Ability to create a master vacation itinerary and then link to the various reservations, and create check lists is just so easy and useful. 3. Tagging. Organizing notes is so easy. But no sort by TAG??? What??? Bottom line, EN works here because it is easy to get stuff in, to organize it, and to use it. I think in the middle of covid lockdown when I wasn't doing anything or going anywhere, I forgot just how much I liked EN for this kind of organizing. So now I have a 40% of subscription email from EN in my inbox. I had cancelled my premium, but I am so tempted to bite the bullet again so I can get it on all my devices.
  9. I am linked to one google drive account, but I would like to switch to another. Anyone know how to do this?
  10. I exported my several thousand notes to Apples Notes. I did some pruning that was well over due - turns out I don’t need those airline confirmations from 5 years ago etc. After taking a while to sync up via iCloud, apple notes works fast and the search is great. I find my notes on all my devices and it just works. I also like the lack of clutter in the app. That’s the good. The bad is web clipping. Apple notes just doesn’t do a good job of this. My solution is to basically use Evernote as a temporary holding spot for my clips. I periodically go through them and decide whether to export them to Notes. ALso note links don’t exist in apple notes. That was an EN feature I really liked. I guess I can live without it though. I’ll be honest - I am surprised at how well Notes does what I need it to do - basically be a digital filing cabinet. It’s definitely not as feature rich as Evernote, but it works for me.
  11. This is very interesting... Even though I am trying to leave, this was an interesting interview.
  12. I guess I could try reinstalling, but Sunday morning, (using the new IOS app on Ipad), I pulled up a recipe. First - the search was a mess - it kept finding, then not finding what I was looking for - there was no stability in the results. Then I open the recipe and start cooking. I switch to another app and come back to evernote to find that it is back at the start page. I am sure that these things will be fixed. But here's the issue - and a brief history of evernote: 1. Create great app/services that work and people love them. 2. Release new version and break the app. People all threaten to leave the service. 3. Gradually fix the app. 4. New app is almost as good as the old app, but does have some new features that we really didn't want. 5. Wait a while 6. Go back to #2 and repeat to #6. Seriously - there is a pattern here.
  13. I use EN really to store records - dogs vaccination records, my property tax bill, the receipt for my dishwasher. Those things live in notes now, but PDFs like past tax returns, user manual for the dishwasher are in dropbox. notion is where I create notes and ideas and where all my work stuff lives - tasks,projects,meetings etc. I gave up using Evernote as a one stop shop for everything years ago. But now it fails at just being a repository of information that I might need to access occasionally.
  14. My EN account says I’ve been a user since 2008. I am one of the early adopters and yet today is the day I say goodbye. I use EN as a filing cabinet. But the latest iterations don’t even achieve that humble goal. The past two versions on iOS are awful. My main gripe - if you open a note and then go to another app, EN seems to forget where it was. Defeats any point of multi tasking. The latest Mac version is unusable. That’s basically all I can say. As a subscriber, I just don’t have time for this. I’m now using apple notes and Dropbox as my filing cabinets. Notion for everything else. Just spend a few days with notion and you realize what a well designed app can do. It’s a joy to use. So goodbye Evernote. It makes me sad to go - I’ve been loyal for a long time, but I just don’t need the aggravation.
  15. Well I went back to the legacy version and all is well. Speedy as before. I should have learned my lesson by now that you never install the early versions of a new update.
