I'm now in week two of update purgatory. The help center and the dev team doesn't take it seriously.
It seems to me that the development team underestimates that the app is a total failure. It is imperative that help center and members of the dev-team take this more seriously.
De- and re-installing doesn't better the situation!
The following problems occur with the new Evernote app 10.5 (1110172)
under Android 10.1.0.191 (C431E27R2P5), which is the last version of Android.
1. It is impossible to clip web content from a range of different browsers and apps. After hitting SAVE in Evernote one of two results are reached: Either, the process of clipping is shown via the moving circle that clipping is under way, but there is no end to this and the app has to be closed. Or: the clipping ends with the message "Clip is saved"
In neither case, the clip is saved, appears neither in the Android app nor other apps/websites of my account. Open and closing, de- and re-installing the app or changing browsers - nothing changes the result.
I clipped an example content and sent the activity log. Silence from the dev team.
2. It is impossible to connect keywords to existing notes with no keywords. Clicking on the keyword symbol neither shows the list of existing keywords nor allows for typing in a new one. Is there already a keyword connected to a note I've found a way to access the keyword file but I haven't checked this thoroughly enough in order to be able to confirm that there will be no error in the future.
De- and re-installing the app which you proposed didn't do the trick. The error persists.
3. It's similar with switching notebooks or access them. The notebooks I created are sometimes listed (in the left frame), sometimes not. Accessing the notebook out of the notebook sometimes work, sometimes not. If I try to switch a note to another notebook, no list of notebooks is given, the search function doesn't work, and it is impossible to switch the notebook.
4. Formatting notes is impossible if the note is displayed in a field titled "HTML content" which is sometimes the case.
This frame is not shown when the same note is displayed in other apps/website of Evernote.
Otherwise a note without this frame can be formatted but, compared to the old app, the process is complicated, tortuous, and very slow.
Let me conclude: in my understanding there are extremely severe shortcomings and comprehensive bugs in the functionality of the app. It seems the app is rolled out prematurely and without the proper testing. The piecemeal approach you try with your recommendations won't work if the development team does not look at their own errors more thoroughly.
I again urge you to let us access the previous app as a remedy!
