  1. I have not. This is actually killing me as I've been using Evernote to store more and more mixed mode notes (text and office files). I'm thinking I'll have to switch back to Dropbox until some app appears that can do this.
  2. Greetings, Has anyone found an alternate to Quickoffice for the iPad with regard to editing office documents that are embedded into notes. Previously Quckoffice had a feature to link your EN account into it's cloud services area and then you could browse notebooks and open word documents right from the app. This was nice because there was no "round trip" needed within iOS. When you saved it, the document just saved right into the note. This was perfect for my workflow as I do store a lot of MS Word docs in Evernote notes. Well.. Then Google purchased Quickoffice and mucked everything up. Now the only cloud service that's offered to link is Google Drive. While GDrive is a nice service it doesn't replace EN and I want to keep using my existing workflow. My question to the users here is has anyone found an app that functions similar to the way Quickoffice used to work? Thanks in advance. Tom
  3. I've spent a lot of time and money evaluating different handwriting programs on the iPad. For me the criteria of a successful program is 1) Replication of handwriting in a electronic format. This includes all of the relevant mechanics including zoom, wrist protection and other bells and whistles. 2) Integration with EN (front door and back door). I've found two programs that work well and fufill my needs. Noteshelf is clearly the winner. It exports directly to EN and has a very feature rich operating envioronment. Also the writing is almost exactly what it would be with real paper/pen. The only downside to this program is it has no ability to type text. Some other apps in the app store have this feature but I've found that the quality of the writing is sacrificed in these apps. The second runner up would be Penultimate. This app is good but has no native EN integration. The only way to back-door integrate is to email your note or cluster of notes to the EN address and using tags and "@" to specify notebooks. This program also has an extremely realistic pen style and is feature rich. I think the upshot to the EN team - if your going to put a hand writing client as integrated into the EN app make sure you don't shortcut the pen style quality or mechanics. Otherwise it would be better to keep an app or two in the trunk that provides decent integration. Tom
