Can Evernote give a statement why this is taking so long?
As i see this, it is a large issue that should be placed high on the "fix list". EN used to be "I can do everything", now it is just a note taking app.
I have used EN for years, and this feels much like going back to landline phones. Today i have my Smartphone with me everywhere i go, and it is quick to answer a call. This EN update feels like going back to the landline days, where i had to physically walk over to the phone and the phone wasn't available everywhere. It does the same thing, but the old days takes much longer, and going back is no alternative.
