I'm a big Evernote fan, but I have one major critique and a request for the Evernote development team. The audio record function just plain sucks and it's below the standard of what I believe Evernote to be. I have two major issues with the functionality. Both should be super simple fixes that could be included in the next update: 1. Add functionality to the round red recording button to stop and save recording when pressed during a recording. Currently, if you hit the record button again (which is the universally accepted process to stop recording since I can remember) the recording is deleted. This is insanity. Just bad programming at it's worst. So far I've found no way to recover the recording. 2. Get rid of the "X" symbol as the defacto "stop and save recording" button (this symbol is universally accepted as "Delete" for as long I as I can remember). 3. Add a "failsafe" opt-in button if any symbol is hit say something like "Are you sure you want to (stop, delete, etc.) this recording... Yes / Cancel). Again a universally accepted programming process to save people from making a mistake. Currently, the save and delete functions are opposite universally accepted programming standards. I've now deleted several recordings since it's opposite the iPhone and most other digital recording devices, and very easy to get mixed up. I will stop using this function until it's fixed. Just not worth it. It would be a great feature if these changes were made.
I must repeat, why is Evernote support so terrible? It would seem they are literally running AWAY from customers and their suggestions. It use to be VERY easy to send them a quick email. Now their site makes it very hard to find how to send them an email. Second thing. I've been asking since 2003 for them to add a better audio recording experience on Android. Since recent OS updates, this is more than possible and other apps have proved that. The current implementation is terrible and a few steps behind it's iOS sister. We can't: Multitask while recordingRecord in better quality, only AMR (A codec released in 1999)Play back recordings on iOS device (since it's in AMR) I believe in Evernote. But I feel this company is greedy and their support for products and listening to users is underwhelming. Frankly, they don't even reply on their forums or consider our ideas. They reply with stock answers if you ever get through the maze to find their email. I know a company needs to make a profit, but at least have a student pricing and be open to your users. Evernote. My trust in you is slowly dying. Then again, why am I calling you out when you don't even come here.
First off, I'm a daily user. Primarily to record what I would call a "voice journal" and I must say I love your project. It really has changed my life and how I work. Now... it's to the point where I want to transcribe most of my voice journals, into editable text, for blogging purposes. A built in feature for this would be AMAZING, but that withstanding here's a simple idea. I know you are recording audio at 8000 Hz to keep file size down, totally get it! But, if this was a user setting, I'd be able to record my files at say... 11025 Hz (the minimum sampling rate supported by transpription software such as MacSpeech Scribe) and not have to do a ton of audio conversion in programs such as Audacity just to get them loaded into the transcription software. Thanks gang, nice work! -Jared
Hi, anybody knows how to edit the audio notes? I've tried with different programs without success, it could easely mean I'm not capable at all but still I think there must be something that allows to open the audio files to edit them so that you can get rid of long useless minutes, or leave just the good seconds that might be good as recordings let's say for a presentation at the office....
