  1. HI guys, appreciate the suggestion for 'workarounds' to the current non-intuitive system (e.g. using contacts, etc). I just wold have thought that if Evernote was wishing to produce an intuitive product for new users, removing the 'friction' or 'barriers' to productivity would be a good thing. Then the 'workarounds' wouldn't be needed.
  2. You're right - not much. It's a cosmetic benefit. You just don't have to remember your cryptic email address that Evernote provides you. All you have to do is remember add@evernote.com My main suggestion is Scheduling Reminders. I know that you can schedule reminders by Evernote on email, but again it's cryptic and not intuitive. So, you could either just send a simple email to: 1week@evernote.com Or, you could: * 'remember' your cryptic email address: username.123456@m.evernote.com * edit your subject line and add a date in a weeks time !2013/06/24 (you then have to try and remember if you should be using USA or UK date format). I know sending an email to: 1week@evernote.com would be much more intuitive and people would use scheduling/reminders much more (in my opinion).
  3. Here are a couple of related suggestions. Adding Content via Email Can we change the way we add/email content to Evernote? Instead of providing a personal email address (e.g. username.123456@m.evernote.com), just simply let people use add@evernote.com (or something like that). People can register their email addresses to their account (so you will know which content applies to what account). Scheduling Reminders Can we borrow the similar functionality from followupthen.com to schedule reminders (and add content in Evernote). So, if we wanted to add content via email and also be reminded of this content in a weeks time, we would send an email to: 1week@evernote.com. The user would then get an email reminder in 1 week with a link to the note that have saved into Evernote (submitted on their original email). You can see all the time variations that FollowUpThen support here. (Evernote could borrow and support this same format). If this functionality was available to easily and and set reminders from email, I know that I would interact and use Evernote much more (and it would be a much better productivity tool for me). You can also integrate these reminders with your calendar (as FUT also provide). I know you can currently add content via email and schedule reminders (but it is not at all intuitive). I think this would be a great productivity boost for a great many people (and I could stop paying for two services).
  4. I love Evernote Reminders, but a few changes would be useful: Recurring reminders Integration with Google Calendar Reminders via SMS To be useful, they need to be quick to setup! Evernote should drop the Reminder syntax from the subject line (what is the full Reminder options even documented for the subject line?????) Evernote should follow this syntax to setup Reminders via email: https://www.followupthen.com/how#timeformats It would be much more convenient to send a Reminder email to my Evernote account using e.g. 1week@evernote.com. Evernote would use the from email address to determine which account to send the information to. Without the above, I find I'm still having to subscribe to the FollowUpThen service
  5. When are we getting 2FA for Evernote? Twitter is adding it now. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-22634176
  6. This is a good article. http://markpercival.us/post/44391805072/evernote-doesnt-really-care-about-security
  7. I wasn't aware there was any misunderstanding. If users choose not to use 2FA on their account, their data will be at much greater risk of unauthorised access. Do you have links to the studies you mention?
  8. This is just so bad: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-21644317 When are we getting 2FA?
  9. That's 250,000 Twitter account passwords stollen (well, the encrypted/hashed version). http://www.telegraph...0000-users.html Affected users are being told to reset their password. Also from the article: But security experts warned that the hackers had possession of a potentially valuable cache of information, as many people's Twitter passwords are identical to those they use for other purposes, including banking.Lets hope we get 2FA shortly for Evernote where lots of personal information is stored.
  10. I think that you are being very presumptious here. If you don't like toppings on your icecream, fine, but it doesn't make sense to assume that others too wouldn't. In an era where security threats continue to increase , people are bound to increase their protection levels, given a choice. Agreed, many people will use 2fa. It looks like Evernote agrees that 1fa (passwords) are not enough. Can't wait till its implemented.
  11. Thanks. The Evernote CEO said a few days ago that Evernote will implement 2fa at some point. Great. Lets hope accounts don't get compromised before it's implemented. Do you have a link to that announcement? As for accounts getting compromised, if you read my posts above and follow my suggestions about good password practices, it is exceedingly unlikely that your account will be compromised. We've already gone over all that, though. The announcement? Apparently, Phil said it at LeWeb. There is no date for a rollout, but he has apparently made the decision. http://elephantchannel.net/ Yes, we've covered how the practice of strong passwords can fail when followed by the general public. Thanks for the link.

  13. another good article: http://www.zonealarm.com/blog/index.php/2012/09/the-facts-about-two-factor-authentication
  14. +1 for background recording on android. We did have this feature in older versions.
