  1. Just an update to mention that the method for reverting to previous versions of EN iOS does not work with the most recent version of iTunes (12.7). The new version does not allow maintenance of apps from within iTunes (necessary for reverting), but only through an iOS device. If you inadvertently have updated iTunes and still want to be able to maintain your iOS apps from iTunes, you can use this method to revert iTunes to v 12.6.2.
  2. So, I deleted EN iOS 8.2.2 and reverted to 7.1.6 (using this method). I was hoping to pull a later version of v7 from the App Store, but 7.1.6 was the only version of v7 I could find. So far, everything is stable. (And I like the v7 interface better.) I'll report back if I run into more issues, but for now… QUESTION FOR DEVS: What changed with v8 that might wreak havoc with legacy Mac desktop version 5.5.2? Can it be addressed in an update for those of us who need to run legacy Mac OS? Thank you. [ASIDE: I could mention that this is a good method for reverting to previous versions of EN iOS.]
  3. I have learned from EN support chat that even after an uninstall, iOS keeps the most recent badge count in the system. All other account data is removed.
  4. I have uninstalled EN from the iPhone. The badge number appears upon reinstall even before launching or logging in. Where is it getting the badge number data, if all of the EN data was removed with the uninstall? Is there some vestige data from the account left on the device?
  5. I may try this, as it looks like it works similarly to the EN2IQ feature of IQTELL (which is being shut down at the end of July). Thank you.
  6. I will miss the EN2IQ function, which was my main way of getting data into IQTELL and EN at the same time. Using EN, you add some text and an IQTELL-specific tag. For example, to create a record of a Meeting: "EN Subject" (becomes the Meeting Title) Convo Type: Meeting Check boxes become tasks in IQTELL. Then changes to the Evernote can be made in the IQTELL interface or in EN itself and are synced. The cool thing about this, is that those checkboxes remain in the note, and are completed as tasks within IQTELL. So as IQTELL meets its demise, I still have a record of all my tasks in EN without having to export from IQTELL. I also used a system where for each item in IQTELL (projects, tasks, etc.) I created a note in EN. So, IQTELL was just being used as a structure and interface for me. All the data is in EN already. Now, I just need to find a replacement. Looking at Feng Office, going back to Remember the Milk, or finding a way to use EN reminders and be done with it.
  7. Okay, more testing using Mac OS 10.6.8 and OS 10.8.5 and EN 5.5.2. It appears to be related to moving notes between notebooks: * move note using Mac app, sync, both desktops are fine * open iOS app, sync, then upon syncing mac app, both desktops go into reindex loop (Reindexing occurs for every sync following upon which there are any changes, even not involving note moves.) * delete iOs app, reindexing of Mac apps stops * move note using Mac app, sync, both desktops are fine * reinstall iOS app, sync, all is fine * move note using Mac app, sync, both desktops are fine * sync iOS app, sync Mac apps, both desktops go into reindex loop Conclusion. If I move notes, I have to first delete the iOS app, then reinstall after sync Mac apps. Request for Devs. Please consider this issue when updating iOS. Thank you.
  8. Thanks for that observation. I should have mentioned that deleting and reinstalling the iOS app somehow solves the reindexing loop on the Mac. This is repeatable. So, perhaps something is being written to the server from iOS that trips up the legacy Mac desktop app. Support has nothing to offer because EN apps older than running on 10.9.5 are not supported, and 5.5.2 is the newest EN app that can run on 10.8.5.
  9. I'm running EN 5.5.2 on two legacy Mac systems (OS 10.6.8, OS 10.8.5). I have no problem syncing between these systems, and did not have any issues with the iOS app—until the release of the new interface (v8). Now, every few days, after opening and syncing iOS (no changes to notes), the Mac apps have to reindex notes and type ahead indexing. This is a very time-consuming process. I've tried deleting and reindexing the Mac apps. No joy. I'm not looking for development of the Mac apps—but hoping that an update to iOS app could be tweaked to not wreak havoc with the legacy Mac desktop app indexing. Any thoughts?
  10. Actually if you use the EN2IQ workflow for creating Actions, Projects, Phone Calls, etc. all of your data goes in through Evernote, and the organizational and infrastructure components exist redundantly in IQTell. So I can create a note in Evernote and tag it appropriately so that IQTell will recognize it as an Action and store the data in Evernote, or with a different tag IQTell will recognize it as a new Project and add any checkboxes as Actions of the Project... again with all the data remaining redundantly stored in Evernote. It's pretty brilliant actually. http://kb.iqtell.com/evernote/en2iq
  11. Sorry for not being able to reply in a timely manner to your question. I just discovered http://cloze.com and find it to be a very cool concept for analyzing and presenting things to the user without any direct user input. I also like the way it handles and integrates Evernote.
  12. UPDATE – RESOLVED: I believe the issue in my case was that I had navigated out of the note before going for Undo. However, I WAS able to recover the photo by going into the Note history and finding the previous version of the note and importing it.
  13. Flaky to say the least, JMichael. I was just using the desktop Mac app and right clicked on a photo in an Evernote that had just synced in, so it didn't respond immediately. Inadvertently the photo got selected and the contextual menu settled on Paste. So, the text of my clipboard was pasted into the note replacing the photo. I immediately went to the Edit menu but all actions were grayed out. So, no Undo. Photo lost in an instant!
  14. Sneaking this in before topic gets closed? I never thought of EN merging IQ as one service, but I think there is something to be said for EN taking it on as an investment, because as a 3rd-party app IQ offers more features and functions that are extensive and integrative of EN. Evernote gets its own link on the IQ home page, and is singularly considered by the developers and many of its users as for that extension and integration of the EN service. I'm using IQ now, and see it this way: Evernote is my memory, IQTell is my intellect.
  15. Hah, you would think, but I have several clients who habitually dash of emails with no subject. I know that I do it too from time to time. I don't see Apptivo as a good fit for me, as I don't need heavy CRM features, but do need good EN integration. On the IQTell forum I found this thread in which someone posted a spreadsheet they made comparing products and features. https://getsatisfaction.com/iqtell/topics/iqtell-alternative Here's the spreadsheet. (He hasn't listed Apptivo, but it appears that he lets other edit the doc.) https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1JCAzQ5f9ETGDhGZSUtecnq5at7AJw3BxSzP5E3h4lgo/edit#gid=0 When I eliminate the ones that don't have email clients or email integration, EN integration, AND iOS app... well all that's left is IQTell.
  16. Thank you, JMichael. Yes, I see it does email, and very robustly. According to the FAQ from 2013, if an email has no subject it won't come in to Apptivo. Do you know if that still the case? And to be clear, there is no Evernote integration with Apptivo? IQTell allows you to access, edit, move, tag, and even create Evernotes directly from within the app.
  17. Thank you for the suggestion of Apptivo, JMichael. I see it is very good at CRM. (It appears that IQTell has some fundamental CRM value through its Prospects app.) IQTell does appear to be a one-app solution to every GTD need I posted: 1) Email handling Create an Action, Project, Ticker, etc from an email. The email gets archived for Inbox Zero. Opening the Action or Project, and the email is linked, along with the entire conversation. Option to send post the email to EN. 2) Tight linking of existing Evernotes to IQTell items. I can create Evernotes right from within the IQTell app and also have them linked to the IQTEll items. Evernote tags work within IQTell. 3) Calendar and Contact integration. I can link items to contacts and calendar events. 4. Apps for Prospecting, Agenda, Meeting and Phone calls 5. iOS, Android, and cross-platform web apps 6. Customizable to create my own "apps" This would appear to meet my needs for having one app to work with Evernote to accomplish most of my needs. (I like that Apptivo can do invoicing, but I don't see it handling email—which is the most important thing—and working as tightly with EN as IQTell does.) If IQTell is shuttering its windows, I need to ask, are there any other one-app solutions to work with EN in this comprehensive integrated manner? Is IQTell really the only one that does all this? As someone for whom EN is the most important every-day app/service, and who does not want to continue stitching together multiple apps with redundant data entry, this question is critical.
  18. I've been using Evernote for about five years, and after trying to use it to manage GTD, I realize that in the way I approach it, my Inbox should be my email inbox. Almost everything I have to do comes through email. I don't find it convenient to send email messages to EN to create an action. I need seamless connection between email and projects/actions so that I can access the full functioning of an email database (with all conversation histories). But most of my note-taking needs to remain in EN, and all of my external files and web links for projects needs to be in EN, so I need something that will tightly integrate with EN notes and tags. I also need tight integration with contacts and calendar so that I can do project management with some moderate depth. It would also help if there was some level of CRM functionality. And it would also be great if there was some flexibility in configuration so that I could customize the app to my individual workflows. I work on Mac and Windows desktops and use iOS and Android devices, so I really want functional cross-platform development. I'm tired of messing around trying to stitch several apps together and doing double entry. I really only want one app to add to Evernote that together can do it all. I know this is asking a lot, but is there any one app that can do all of this?
  19. Much has advanced since september. The iOS app is very functional now. Evernote integration has become tighter and very useful. That's a good read... the closest I have seen in a testimonial to giving the flavor of IQTell.
  20. I'm running OS 10.6.8, Safari 5.1.10, Evernote Clipper Build ID: 78f7d0f I do not see any option for "Notebook Selection"
  21. I've now been using IQTELL and Evernote exclusively for task and project management since April. Great solutions.
  22. Brian, I like your approach. I too have found IQtell to be a fantastic solution. Most of my actionable stuff comes in email, and IQtell is just so good with email in that regard. I also link Evernotes to projects from within the IQtell app quite a bit. IQtell is a very powerful app "out of the box" and it has so much customization options, that it can really be somewhat of a personalized app. Pretty amazing, and as you dig deeper, more power is unleashed.
