  1. Well, it's been a long wait, but from what PC Magazine described as Evernote's new user polices, pricing and restrictions, I doubt I'll be around much any more anyway when my current plan expires.
  2. Of course, this feature was implemented on the desktop. I use it often there, but it is of much more value on the Android app because of smaller screens. Ironically, it wasn't implemented on Android. On the desktop, I can see more of the note and scroll faster anyway. Not so on Android. So, here's how it goes: your product has evolved. That's a good thing. The original concept of short notes eventually added audio, photos, etc. And now I think users have also found other uses you didn't really anticipate--that standing, more-or-less permanent and longer text notes are useful, too. For me, to name one instance, I keep my ebook inventory on Evernote. It is fairly extensive. I had lots of problems getting this to work. First, I had to break the notes alphabetically by author down to small chunks (Like note "A" instead of note "A-L") because it is so slow and difficult to edit long notes on the Android app. First, Text entry slows to a crawl when editing. (This is a problem we've not discussed. I have a Note 4--it certainly has plenty of speed and memory. The problem is with the Evernote app's limited ability in handling longer notes...) PLUS, finally coming to the current issue, I couldn't find anything easily if, say, I wanted to see if X book was part of Y series. Where does X book appear? In what part of which note? When I had this organized more as A-L, that was a lot of text to move through. Or, even if I just wanted to go quickly to a certain part of the note, I couldn't. It is hard to find and scroll a long note EVEN when I know what I'm looking for--and sometimes I wouldn't. A word search often works better. It's just faster in landing at the right place if you have unique words that don't appear often. When, finally, I limited the alphabet coverage of each note to things like just "A," that certainly helped as a crude workaround. Assuming I remember who the author is, of course. And. It would still be easier to just do a quick word search and go right to the portion of the note i want, wouldn't it? And it would be nice if I didn't have to break these inventory notes now into 15 notes to cover the alphabet, instead of 2. As long as there is no search (and as long as that text entry slowness keeps degrading performance when editing longer notes), that's not possible. This workaround is ok. It's not perfect. It's always faster to go to unique words. I'd rather not do the workaround. It's clutter and imperfect.
  3. Well, please recommend it. I was very pleased to see my suggestion taken up (assuming it was mine that provoked the change) for the desktop. But if anything in the tiny, little screen size on the phones, it is more important to have it on the device. Thanks.
  4. Hi--some time back I complained about a lack of a search-within-note feature. I'm very happy to see that the Desktop app has adopted this for awhile. But unless I'm missing something, is it so that it is not available still on the Android app?
