  1. LOL, I haven't noticed a single meaningful improvement to EN in years. Nor a single meaningful statement. The good thing is they've set expectations so low that it doesn't even occur to me to even expect improvement, or even bother posting like a suggestion would ever be listened to, the only reason I'm posting here is I got a thread notification. If anything, the only thing I'd expect from a new release would be further destruction and dumbing down of the product, aka the "new" web version. Which I haven't looked at in probably 6 months since once I saw how they had destroyed that, but again, why bother? My use now is very limited, I don't use much any more.
  2. Edit: deleted my post upon further consideration, so as not to take this thread off topic.
  3. I just signed up and played with it very briefly. One of the better note taking products I've seen. It's possible I'm missing something but my observations are: Pros 1. Subfolders as many levels deep as you want. 2. Appears as though you can share folders at any level you want, i.e. what would be the equivalent of being able to share a stack in EN. Cons 1. No grouping of tags, that's huge. 2. In Evernote if you select a stack, you can see all notes in the the notebooks in that stack, that's an awesome feature. In Nimbus if you select a folder, you can ONLY see notes for that specific folder, not the notes in sub-folders. I don't like that paradigm for note taking, I'm NOT saying it's "wrong", just that I'd want an option in settings for selecting whether I want to see the notes in subfolders when I select a parent folder.
  4. Rick, That may have been the solution for you, but for many small teams a shared premium account may be much better, mainly due to the pathetic lack of features and support of the business product. Countless examples discussed in this forum, the most obvious being the inability to share stacks, which is easily done with a shared premium account. Another being the inability after something like 3 years for an admin to rename notebooks for a team, again easily accomplished with a shared premium account. I don't disagree that the business product will be better for some, but not for all.
  5. Your point is legit, but without major funding, it's going to be very difficult for small start-ups to give out huge amounts of storage. They need to scale up and start making money before they can do that. And even then it's difficult, imagine that the product catches on and suddenly they have millions of users signing up. 90%+ of whom will be non-paying/free customers (yes that can be offset with ads). So any startup without huge funding is going to need to control storage for free customers so they don't get caught with their pants down.
  6. Hi Alan, I addressed the lack of cloud functionality in the cons section of my post. As far as it being in the "primordial stage", it is anything but. The software has been available for over five years with an endless series enhancements. It is rough mainly in the sense that the gui is not pretty and can get a bit busy, but that's not the most important requirement for many users, especially power users which is what this threads about. Not trying to convince you are anyone else to use it, but want to characterize it as accurately as possible.
  7. This is an old thread but another product to add to the mix is InfoQube. Cons: PC only (can run on a USB stick if desired), no cloud option, no mobile option. I think I might have read about some users using DropBox to keep it synced across PC's but not sure.No real tagging system.The steepest learning curve of any PIM/information manager you've ever used. This is a product for power users that are willing to spend some time learning. The online help is outstanding though. If EN is the triumph of form over function (which is what it is starting to become), IQ is the triumph of function over form.UI is not pretty and navigating between "grids" could use improvement if you have lots of them (closest EN equivalent is a notebook).Pros: A power users delight, it makes EN (and OneNote) look like a toy in comparison. With the exception of the limitations described above, it's power is amazing, and it can handle everything in your life, information (i.e. as EN does) PLUS outlining, projects, tasks, full calendar as well. Even though I've listed 4 cons there are really too many features and too much power to even go into, and it's so customizable it is amazing. So for Pros I'm not going to try to list a bunch if them.If the above description of cons doesn't scare you away, you can download a free version with sample data at their website. They also have a small but active user forum where dedicated users will answer questions. It's rare to read good software reviews anymore, but this one from PC World is actually a very good one for anyone that wants to read more about it.
  8. I am not saying this just to rant, this industry is having a fair number of incompetent User Experience people driving software UI design who have the "religion" and they are on a mission to "minimize distractions" and "simplify". These people are akin to interior designers that don't think you should ever see a TV in the room, even if the purpose of the room is for it to be a media room. They know what's best for you and their artistic sensibilities are not going to be compromised for tasteless barbarians, they are creating something that is "beautiful" and "simple", you don't need those damn options!
  9. Guys, you need to be reasonable here. This is after all, the company that is going to kill the file system and decimate Microsoft Office. So they just don't have time to deal with the really deep complex issues like how to let a business rename a notebook. http://www.cnbc.com/id/102047277
  10. What a useless joke the new web beta is. This is what happens when the design lunatics get in charge. Using nonsense terms like "minimize distractions". I wonder how long it will be before EN utterly destroys the desktop clients. Having to engage in more clicks does not "minimizes distractions". Not being able to see my notebooks and tags does not "minimize distractions", it increases them. This represents the complete and utter triumph of function over form, another dumbing down of a product to the lowest common denominator. I sure hope all the companies like Microsoft and Gmail and Apple do this with email clients. It really bothers me seeing all those naughty things like inbox and sent items on the side. How will I ever focus with all those distractions? The funny thing is there are legitimate ways to "minimize distractions" without totally ***** over all your power users, and many software apps use them. Just give your users a simple way to hide and/or collapse UI elements. Heck, even make it the default if you want, as long as power users can turn them back on no harm done.
  11. Sends boxes of chocolates. I got 3 different features implemented by sending chocolates. I found the Maman Intense to get the quickest feature turnaournds.
  12. Any kid smart enough to figure out that they can type a link into EN and then surf the web by clicking on that link deserves to get access to all the porn they want . Plus they'll probably make enough money one day to buy their parents a big house, so best not to piss them off .
  13. Hey Lucy, thanks for your comments. However, I'm not sure what Google has to do with Evernote Tags, since Google is not involved in searching in my Evernote account. In fact, Google can't even see my Evernote account. At least not as far as you know .
  14. I'm going to guess you've answered your own question here, t I seriously doubt it, as Metordon says contact support, but I'd not be hopeful. Only thing that occurs to me is that with Evernote premium there is some type of feature where you can have multiple EN accounts and switch between them (File>Add Another User on Windows). So maybe you could create two accounts that way, and have each account access a different business? If that would even work, and how it relates to mobile devices I don't know. But it's the only thing I can think of to try.
  15. They are not note taking programs so I don't think they will be useful to you. The one I used it in the most is OnTime which is an agile development program, they show a screenshot here. Ranking is a very common feature in project management programs where you need to be able to rank the order things need to be done in, so I've seen it in many of those programs. As far as note programs I believe it's possible with OneNote, though with OneNote you give up alphabetical sorting, in case you need both. InfoQube is a rather "esoteric" high-end PIM for PC only that can do it. Some other ones that come to mind that i think do it are Rightnote. But OneNote is the only one of those that in addition to PC does mobile, it has an Android and iOS app, no idea if you can rank using the mobile apps though. Since I think Microsoft just made OneNote free you might want to check that out, it is very powerful. There may be many others that do it, there are a ton of note taking apps out there for mobile. For me EN is still the best but I can live without this feature even though I'd like to have it.
