  1. New list view looks too big, I'm used to seeing about 3 x 3 thumbnails in the desktop version, and 2 (columns) x 3 makes sense for me in the iOS version. I don't like a list view and never used it before. I update several notes a day, so I feel lost having to go down to look for notes instead of clicking right there the recently updated notes. Rotating the phone makes it even bigger, a note thumbnail doesn't even fit on the screen.

    By the way, since the previous update, every time I open the app it asks me for my iTunes password. Same with this new update. I tried deleting and reinstalling the app and same problem.


    Beyond that, thank you for the great app!

  2. BUG: No matter what type of font, size and color I use in checklists, no matter if I select all the text in the note and set up a specific font, size and color, every time I hit enter and go to the next line creating a new check box, the font goes back to Helvetica Neue 14 in black.


    Let's not forget this is a free software . . .


    Well, to set the record straight, it's not really free.

    Your use of the product is paid for by us Premium account owners, who do pay.


    Allowing you to use the product for free is just a sales gimmick to get you to upgrade to Premium.  ;)



    That's true! But free or paid, sometimes people complain like Evernote is a human right (and I'm a first class complainer... but here, just thank you and suggestions...)

  4. Here's my issue/frustration from the upgrade to Evernote 6.0:


    Notes are not showing contents for a *very* long time in all views that actually show the note contents (card view, list view, snippet view, top list view).


    This happens upon opening Evernote, selecting notes, opening notes in a new window, etc. The note appears empty, and it takes up to two minutes or so before the contents suddenly appear. If I choose another note after the contents appear, I have to wait for that note to populate the contents area. If I quickly choose another note to view, then come back to the originally selected note (which had finally loaded the contents) the contents are gone again, and I have to wait for them to load once more


    This happens to every note I choose, in every notebook - and makes using Evernote very frustrating.


    Evernote was upgraded via the app store on a MacBook Air running 10.9.5 (I can't upgrade the OS as this is a company owned laptop, and there are issues with Yosemite and tools we use at work at this time).


    1. Same here... I thought it was happening only for the first time you open a note, some kind of "upgrade" delay... but not, you switch between notes and all are slow, with no content for a while. Hopefully this is solved soon.


    2. A +1 to complain about the color. I like the sleek design but I was loving the to-do check marks in blue.


    3. I won't get tired of saying this, especially with so many people bitching about this upgrade:




    Let's not forget this is a free software and this company keeps on paying close attention to this forum. Not like the Apple Discussions forum, with tons of complaints about same old thing and still you don't see one Apple employee showing up to clarify or thank or even consider what people say.


    Have a great weekend everybody.

  5. DayOne is a journal app. I consider what pictures, what chunks of text I add to it. It's the curated view of my life. 



    Thanks so much, that concept definitely clarifies it.


    If you wouldn't have DayOne, would you create one or two notebooks in Evernote called "Curated Journal" or XXX and use it like you would use DayOne, or for some feature I don't know, DayOne is irreplaceable? 


    Also, what would you suggest to start sending notes to DayOne? Any specific technique to put old stuff there?


    Last but not least, do you have to buy both the desktop and the iPhone app? $15 seems too much to start playing around when the amazing Evernote is free...



  6. I'm a heavy Evernote user for ALL (photos, web clipping, to do's, etc.). I just checked Day One and I like the idea of using it, I feel I'm putting too much in Evernote (around 2,000 notes) and some notes are updated several times a day without tracking changes. I wonder what's the use of Day One and why I would like it complementing Evernote... anybody using both? Why Day One and not Evernote and viceversa?

  7. I suspect @goldfilm is talking about the fact that checkboxes are very small, and it is difficult to check them off without engaging the keyboard.


    I started a thread on this topic six months ago asking Evernote to make checkboxes bigger. After six months and several others weighing in on behalf of larger checkboxes or another solution, an Evernote employee has finally responded "I agree that we need to improve the usability of checkboxes in the note editor; we'll look into increasing size or other changes for an upcoming release."


    It may be useful to consolidate requests for improved iOS checkbox functionality in a single thread to encourage Evernote to take this problem seriously.

    Thanks, I already commented on the link. My suggestion is for Evernote to ask if you want to edit the note or check the boxes only. Thus, the note could be protected from editing, allowing "check on, check off" only, whatever you touch on the note. 

  8. I agree! They are impossible to use. I even zoom the note so the boxes are as big as possible. But still, half of the times you click on them the action opens the note to edit somewhere else instead of checking the box. 


    One possible solution would be to ask if you want to edit the note or check the boxes only. Thus, the note could be protected from editing, allowing "check on, check off" only, whatever you touch on the note.

  9. Did you ever try to fill a check list as done on a phone? Every time you click on a box, instead of put the checkmark it opens the note for editing and doesn't let to mark the squares. Let's say you're in a supermarket with a groceries list... almost impossible to use the list and mark items as done.
