  1. Suggestion: Evernote Android to be able to drag up and down checkboxes, similar to the Evernote for Windows functionality. This is a very convenient work flow. Tasklists naturally and frequently need to be re-arranged in terms of priority Drag up/down is a superior workflow to cut/paste Drag up/down is a superior workflow to cut/paste especially on mobile devices
  2. I would argue that Evernote is still a master of none right now. It's not a must-have, and many other apps possess many of its features. If I had never used Evernote, I wouldn't have a hard time getting used to the workflow of alternative apps. Nor would I have a hard time migrating old Notes, which I'd been slowly migrating to MS Office and G Drive since year 2015. As for Notion being heavyweight, I might have confused by using the wrong term. I meant, better featured. Notion is okay for personal projects, as it has free advanced features like custom typed properties, calendar view, multi-view data, reminders, rich content formatting, nesting, sharing, unlimited workspaces/boards. Of course, if you compare it to Glo-board, GitLab, YouTrack, Trello, they have Assignees, Burndown chart, Git integration, Commit Referencing, CI/CD, Project Statistics, etc. But I wouldn't use them for hobbies, nor would i use them with non-techies. They also cost a lot more. Anyway back to the point, I was hoping Evernote would be able to measure up to competition against other note-taking/tracking apps. I do agree with you though, that if it is not feasible for Evernote to implement it without getting bloated (for various reasons, be it technical, funding, strategic), I would not want the Kanban feature to be in.
  3. You could also say that: Evernote looks like OneNote... Evernote drawings does the same thing as Google Keep drawings... Evernote serves the same function as Google Drive/OneNote/Google Keep/Notion... Evernote tasks is a weaker version of ToDoist/Notion Board... Getting Evernote to be like Trello isn't impossible. Notion had done it with their boards. I am currently using multiple tools together. But I do wish Evernote (or someone, anyone?!) could do it all. Then I wouldn't have so many apps... Google Keep: Super responsive, lightweight, temp notes / simple lists Evernote: Long-term, short-length, pretty notes / sketches Notion: Heavyweight Kanban To-Do Boards MS Office: Reports / Documents G Drive: Collaborative Notes / Lists / Drawings / Reports
  4. Have never joined any beta program for any app whatsoever. Much less Evernote which stores important notes that I wouldn't trust a beta version with.
  5. It looks like the latest update fixed it for me. I'm not sure what they updated cos the version remains unchanged at 8.9, but i most certainly received a new update on Google Play. Thanks for the fix!
  6. Samsung S8, Android 9, Evernote version 8.9 Someone should really work on this ASAP because it's a show-stopper glitch. I'm literally unable to see any of my notes with a black on black font/background. As far as the current state goes, Evernote on Android is completely dead to me, and impossible to use.
  7. After receiving the error, I had to reload help.evernote.com twice to get it to work. But it's a valid workaround 👍 Thanks for the responsiveness!
  8. @Nick L. I'm still encountering the problem. I've even tried using Incognito mode in Chrome but the error still appears.
  9. When logging in to Evernote Support through Help & Learning, through the following steps: Go to Evernote.com Click on Help & Learning Click on Send Us an Email Anytime (lies....) Click on Continue with Google See the blank error page below: {"success":"false","reason":"csrf_failure"} It's not possible to login using Google credentials. This bug has been present for over 2 years - I'd submitted this exact ticket back when I was a Premium User. It wasn't acted upon then - literal radio silence. So I thought I'll just put this up in the forums where it'll maybe get more visibility from the developers.
  10. This feature shouldn't really be hidden under the title "Set up passcode lock"... You should rename it as "Additional Security"
  11. Use the right tools for the right purpose. If you're on Android, use CamScanner. Or Adobe Scan.
  12. My Android Widget isn't displaying anything at all, and is completely unresponsive to touch. (see attached image) This often happens when I reboot my Samsung S8, and I haven't been able to pinpoint the cause at all. Manually launching Evernote via the app icon, then exiting, will cause the Widget to become functional again. But it is still an annoyance, having to do this first thing in the morning, on every other day.
  13. I have the same problem too. Also a Galaxy S8 that recently underwent a Android Pie upgrade. Me thinks Evernote wasn't ready to handle Android P on older phone models. In the meantime I'm resorting to using alternative note-taking apps.
  14. It's been over 4 years since this feature was last suggested, it is the Top 10 most popular Android features. And in the long while since, I've unsubscribed from Evernote Plus due to the low value it provided. Ideally, Evernote shouldn't be used to annotate anything complex. This includes color formatting and tables. The viewing and writing format isn't good for long documents, and formatting is messed up between desktop/Android. Instead, use one of the heavyweights like Google Drive, OneNote, or even MS Office Online. EverNote is best for short-form notes/bullet points.
  15. I'm pretty much always disappointed when i receive new app updates from Evernote, both in Android and Windows. The most significant update recently is a logo change, now that was new. Instead of feeling disappointment, it was incredulity and annoyance instead.
  16. Your advice works! Many thanks for helping me resolve the issue, using Evernote feels much better now.
  17. I have the same problem, but slightly different. Creating a new photo note fails more than half the time. Although it was impossible for me to add more than 1 Camera photo to the note, I could attach multiple images from Gallery (aka not from Camera) to notes. That this doesn't work is of course, still disappointing. If I had to manually take a photo and then attach it to Evernote, I might as well use Dropbox or OneDrive. EDIT: try syncing your notes (to backup), uninstalling, restarting your phone, then reinstalling Evernote. Somehow that resolved my issue.
  18. Hi, Whenever I use Evernote to take a picture with the camera, the attachment fails with "Unknown Error Occurred", and nothing gets attached. I've tried this multiple times in various ways: Taking a photo note using the Widget -> Fails all the time Opening Evernote, then taking a photo note -> Fails all the time Opening a new, empty note, then putting a Camera attachment -> Fails more than half the time Having an existing note with an image or a camera attachment, then putting another Camera attachment -> Fails all the time Having a new note, or an existing note with a Camera attachment, then attaching a image from Gallery -> Succeeds all the time Why is the Android Evernote so buggy? I'm really surprised, I would have thought this is a really standard workflow.
  19. That is sad... Hopefully with the latest changes rolled out to the editor lately, it means they are taking a good look at the core of the entire note-editing/taking experience.
  20. Currently, when I use Android GBoard (aka Google Keyboard) on Android 7.0, anything cut/copied and then pasted within the same Evernote note will have its font family and font sized changed. E.g. On Android, select some text in a Evernote note Copy or cut it Paste it again somewhere in the same note Sync Go to Windows Evernote and open up the same note Notice the text has changed from Tahoma 10 to Helvetica Nue 12, which is very obviously distinct from the original/default font As Tahoma 10 is Evernote's default font (as far as I can see in Windows Evernote), and I'm doing copy-paste within Evernote's own note itself, I would at least expect some form of consistency involved regarding the font-style and font-size.
  21. Not so much a workflow issue, but a kind of dissonance. Like "I'm pretty sure I changed something on that checklist.." "wait it looks updated already, isn't it?" *Goes back and forth between Android, Windows and widget to make sure contents and timestamps align* I wouldn't mind it so much if I had a force sync, or knew it updated when I clicked on it. But currently I'm always second-guessing my modifications, second-guessing the sync server. Granted it is relevant only for notes with contents short enough to view in the widget view, but that doesn't make the issue any less uncomfortable.
  22. Evernote Widget on Android does not update its copy of the note, even though Evernote Android already displays the latest copy of the note. I have a note, Version A. I updated the note on Evernote Desktop at 6 pm, going from Version A to Version B. I synced Evernote Android, and the app shows Version B of the note. I look at my android widget, it shows a timestamp of 6 pm (version B ) but the content remains that of Version A

    I would actually be wary of introducing Tables to Android because the display is absolutely not optimised right now. Tables created in Evernote Windows desktop looks pretty bad both in the desktop version and the Android version, as things like dimensions, flexible layout, alignment are in a pretty bad state currently. EDIT: Things seem to have improved with the latest Windows client though - I'll check that out once I get my laptop repaired.
  24. Color me surprised when I saw a promo Youtube video for Evernote IOS - they already have this feature in iOS since Jan 2017! Android needs this too!
  25. I do see the need for putting a device limit on the Free Tier. It definitely separates those who are doing a preview of EverNote vs those who are using it in their day-to-day life. But I gave you an upvote because the Plus Tier contains way too many features that I don't use at all. The only one I use, but is no biggie, is probably the offline notebook feature. So yeah, it doesn't feel nice to be paying money for a whole much of pointless features. In fact I had let my subscription expire because my office recently took back my carryhome laptop so I have only 2 devices for the next few months. Might subscribe back in the future but we'll see how things go.
