This is all okay. But the question is, how do we stop auto updating on our Macs. You have not answered that at all.
While we want the new features presented, it is in no way under their privilege to forcefully push updates. Updating an app is under the user's control. And that does not mean they can downgrade a user to the legacy version and make them forego all new features. Auto-updating should not be a part of the new feature bundle?
I am still testing Evernote before making a subscription and thinking of moving away from my previous note app. Everything works perfectly except this part.
The reason I need auto-updating to stop is because I travel and work a lot and I depend on tethered mobile data for my WiFi. In such situations, I don't want to waste my precious mobile data bandwidth to update an app for reasons I didn't ask for.
I believe they should implement an off button for updates like any other Mac app.
