  1. Gazumped- I don't know if you work for Evernote, If you do, that is pretty bad customer service--to say "we don't care about your concern, take it or leave it!". It would make a whole lot more sense to be able to encrypt whole notes, not just selected text. (I would guess that many users would prefer to have that option.) Now I just had a further problem. I opened a note of mine in which all the text was encrypted, entered the password, and could see all the text. So far, so good. Then I added a couple lines of text to the note. Being part of what I consider an encrypted note, I of course would like the new text encrypted as well. Of course though, with Evernote not being able to encrypt notes, but only selected text, that new text is not encrypted with the rest. Therefore, I selected all the text of the note (including my new text), and right-clicked that text, expecting to see an encryption option in the context menu. But none was there. I looked in the menus at the top of the app, and could also find no encryption option. Has Evernote now totally removed the option to encrypt text from the free version? (This is version for Windows.)
  2. I use Evernote on my Windows desktop and laptop computers, and on my Android phone. I see real problems with how Evernote handles encryption, which would prevent me from buying the premium version, and perhaps cause me to switch to a different notes app. I notice that others on this forum have complained about it too, and wonder when Evernote plans to fix it. First of all, that one can only select text and have that text encrypted. I don't know if anyone really only encrypts part of a note. I guess if anyone does, they can keep that capability, but there certainly should be the capability to encrypt whole notes, rather than selected text. Sure, one can select all the text in a note, then choose for it to be encrypted. But what about when one later adds text to that note? One should be able to encrypt a note, and no matter what one adds or changes about it, that note is encrypted. Furthermore, still more serious, encryption only seems to work on the desktop program. I have an encrypted note (well, all the text was selected and encrypted), created on the desktop. I can read it on my ANdroid phone, by typing in the password. However, I tried to add to that encrypted note on the phone. That seemed to close the note, but then added extra text, which is not encrypted. I saw no way to add that to the rest of the note, which is encrypted. Furthermore, when I open that note on the desktop, that text I added on the pnone does not appear at all. It still appears on the phone, but separate, not encrypted like the rest. There really needs to be the capability to encrypt a note (on devices as well as on the desktop), and any text added to that note on any platform is automatically encrypted, part of that encrypted note. When will the encryption problems of Evernote be fixed?
  3. PS By the way, if the version of Evernote for WM that I have is the latest, it certainly COULD USE AN UPDATE! For one thing, I see no way at all to choose the sort order of the notes. (If there is a way, will someone please tell me how.) If it is impossible to set the sort order, that is a serious defect, even for an older version. That is essential, for users to be able to set the sort order. Also, there is no option for finger-scrolling in it (as far as I can see), one has to use the scroll bar to the side. It is true that older WM devices used a stylus, not the finger. But more recent ones like my HD2 do use finger-scrolling (no stylus came with it), just like IOS and Android devices. I am sure you have finger-scrolling in IOS and Android versions, I think it should be there (as an option at least) in the WM version too. One more problem I have encountered in the version of Evernote for WM that I currently have. There does not seem to be any local storage of notes. If one is not connected to the Internet, one cannot see any notes at all! Well, one might not always be connected to the Internet, but still want to see the last-synced version of a note. They should be cached on the device for offline viewing. (Per the last part of my previous post) I can predict your reply--"WM is an obsolete IOS, that we don't support". Well, I am sure that you have many thousands or millions of customers worldwide who still use WM devices. If you care about giving good customer service, you will have a decent Evernote version that will run on the WM platform. My two cents. Is there a newer WM version than the one I have? If not----are there any workarounds, registry tweaks, etc., to address the sort order of notes, and that could enable finger scrolling, and ability to view notes offline? Thanks in advance.
  4. Like millions of people throughout the world, I am still using a Windows Mobile (6.5) phone the HTC HD2. The version of Evernote on my phone is 3.3 (64861). Is that the most recent version of Evernote for WM, or was there a later one? one If there is a later version, and if it is better, where can one download it? ------------ Side note. Interesting, that as soon as Microsoft announced it was coming out with Windows Phone 7, and that it would not be backwards-compatible with earlier Windows Mobile devices, suddenly Windows Mobile became "unsupported", although millions of people throughout the world were still using WM devices. One might think that developers still might care about supporting all those millions of users, but that did not seem to be the case, as suddenly (although 6.5 had not really been out so long) WM was deemed "obsolete", not worth supporting.I wish there was more concern about supporting users, even if the powers that be have deemed their mobile OS "obsolete".
