  1. Editorial is probably better, I'm not using it because I haven't tried it yet
  2. I streamlined the process of copying local note link even more. I don't even need to switch to Drafts, I can convert external note link to local note link right from Evernote app. This requires a jailbreak though. Here's an example: Pretty cool, huh?
  3. Automated the process more details in the video description or here http://discussion.evernote.com/topic/39792-cant-create-note-links-in-en-ios-clients/#entry222701
  4. I automated the process of converting external note link to internal note link with Drafts and Pythonista Here's an example of how it works: All I have to do is: Copy Note link in Evernote Paste it in Drafts and select my custom action The note link is automatically converted and copied to clipboard Here's how to set it up You will need Drafts and Pythonista apps. In Drafts you will need to create this custom URL Action: In Pythonista you will need to create this script and name it as “internal evernote note link”: Check how your own evernote note links look and tweak the script accordinglyYou will need to replace “shard/s45/sh" with whatever is in your own external link that evernote generates, “s45” might be different for you. And in “evernote:///view/4444444/s45/” Replace “4444444/s45/” with whatever is in your own internal note link (create one on the desktop and check if needed)
  5. I'm interested in this too...
  6. I've made a quick tutorial on how to do it on iPad: It's not hard once you know how to do it.
  7. there is (sort of) http://discussion.evernote.com/topic/40001-ios-54-note-links-feature-completion-request/?view=getnewpost
  8. Cool, it works Would be better of course if there was simply an option to copy an internal link... One issue though - when you follow an internal link to a note - this note doesn't appear in recent notes. It's like it was never opened. Edit: seems to be fixed now.
  9. You can generate and use links to Notebooks, Tags, Searches and pretty much anything on iOS in Clever though.
  10. @danielegold, great points. I really like this advice. The system should be designed based in your particular needs instead of just around some specific app. Basically you're kind of suggesting to apply the Natural Planning model to design the system, i.e. "what's the successful outcome?", "what do I need from my system?", etc. This makes perfect sense and applies to designing anything actually, not just GTD. I also think that the real issue in this case is managing GTD completely on a tablet/mobile(not desktop) in the quickest and most efficient way possible with as little taps and as little manual work as possible. As I've said in my previous posts Evernote could actually work well for this as long as you know what you're doing... but if someone wants the most efficient and convenient task manager possible without any comprosises then Evernote is just not the right tool because the interface and functionality is not designed specifically for task management. Also it's very easy to split the system and keep actions and projects in a dedicated task manager and everything else in Evernote. Actionable and non actionable data is supposed to be organized separately in GTD anyway to begin with. It doesn't have to be this or that, you can combine Evernote with an app like Omnifocus and get the best out of both worlds. I think in future we'd just have some app similar to Evernote Food, Hello, etc. but only for task management which would integrate with Evernote. You'd still want to switch between Evernote and this additional app so the possible advantage over Omnifocus(for example) and Evernote combo would be minimal in practice but if done well it could still be usefull.
  11. Yeah, well editing notes on iOS is clunky because of the delays and etc. The separate "edit" mode is the biggest bottleneck. That's just how Evernote works... It has been discussed many times in different threads, here is one recent thread for example It's not even GTD related, it affects all use cases. Hopefully Evernote devs would pay attention to this stuff...
