  1. Just wanted to say goodbye to my long-time lasting relationship with the product. I was using Evernote for...hmm...well, it's 5 years today! Mac, Windows, iPhone, iPad, Surface - on all the platforms and across tons of computers I was exchanging notes for all these years with gigs of data, 1000s of notes on a Premium plan. That was a long ride and it left a lot of good memories as long as a lot of disappointments. What's good? I can say that Evernote was the best web clipper I've ever tried and also it was very good in organizing things. Unfortunately that's it. With all that marketing support and all the inve$$tments it should've been the best product on Earth for storing all kinds of notes. Unfortunately it's still not and I lost hope. Hope for the better editor, that is not buggy, hope for better sync that doesn't generate duplicates. Hope for better UI which does give you more choice and freedom. Hope for a stable, predictable companion. Which Evernote is not. The bad side of Evernote that it doesn't change much, doesn't listen to user feedback, doesn't improve, doesn't evolve, doesn't want to get out of the box. It basically stays the same beta software I tried a couple years ago. Some shiny features developed by marketing department that I've never really used, some stability improvements that made it a little bit better, integration with more services that I don't use either - but it's year 2016 and even Apple has their note product embedded in the OS that can really compete with the old clunky Evernote. Even drawing with the stylus on the iPad is a pain in Evernote. Every single detail is a pain. Editor is the huge pain. I have notes that look different all the time when I load them up on different devices. I have notes where all of a sudden text changes formatting so I can't read it. I have old notes that look different all the time when I start editing them. I have notes that disappear and reappear in Sync Conflicts random places. I have notes where I can't change color or size of the text. I have notes that I can't find because they all look the same in Evernote. Changing color of the background? Of course it will never be done, not possible, why am I asking? Changing highlighting in the text? Appeared after 3 years of user ranting. And it's still what? One color? Come on Evernote, versatile editor is the basic feature! Or is it for the development team? I dunno, maybe I'm not the target user of your software. I'm just tired. I'm switching. I don't think it's appropriate place to tell where I'm switching to, but you probably already know. Goodbye and I wish you luck and success.
  2. 1) It's inconvenient 2) It's slow (especially for big and complex notes) 3) It requires buying of a separate Word application (and on Mac MS Word is hell of a software) We really need a built-in Evernote highlighting
  3. Sure thing! Now I see, and it's unfortunate, you won't be implementing anything in the upcoming years Thank you for admitting that. That's why I'm stuck with Springpad+Notability waiting for a good client for OneNote for iPad with sync (and it's coming as I'm beta-testing it).
  4. I came to this thread by googling for new features of Evernote. I was hoping that there WERE new features, but seems I'm mistaken. I'm trying to use Evernote since the beginning from time to time and EVERY time I fail. It seems like Evernote marketing team tells us what they want to see in the software instead of what it's really is. Let me tell you that Evernote LACKS almost ANY basic feature that your many competitors have. The only upside of Evernote is multiplatform, but it's really not enough. Every time I try to use it (since year 2008 more or less) I FAIL, because there's nothing in Evernote for really taking notes. Evernote is now a Wordpad with syncing capabilities and basic structure handling. And nothing changes. Let me tell you which FUNDAMENTAL features I need in Evernote: 1) Highlighting (oh yes) 2) Notebook password protection (not just the text - I need a whole Notebook that is password protected and have every new note in it protected) 3) Good Table engine with resizing/moving columns, rows possibilities, 4) Tagging text inside Notebooks 5) Good drawing/painting/marking with wacom/iPad engine. Penultimate on iPad? It sucks, guys. You cannot even zoom in to what you have drawn! 7notes? It sucks even much than Penultimate. And I need drawing capabilities on Desktop! 6) Sorting notes in custom order! I want my "IMPORTANT" note to be on the top of the list!!!! What's wrong, why I can't do this? 7) If you're listening to users (I'm not sure, these requests pop up on the forums but never get embodied) I can tell you much more These features are being widely discussed thru YEARS on Evernote and other forums and never get implemented. Instead of developing, Evernote team implements some very strange and subtle useless features. Just take a look at OneNote how it is brilliantly made. Evernote is now light years behind OneNote (and many other competitors) in terms of text editing and organizing thoughts/texts/clips/anything.
