I use Evernote to scout photography locations. It's incredibly helpful, but there is a serious limitation to "Places" and mapping data in Evernote, you cannot navigate to a point of interest. Evernote does not have navigation tools (such as offline maps and turn by turn directions). That would be no problem with a simple fix: This could easily be overcome if the map pin would allow the user to "open in" a mapping app such as Google Maps. Even just displaying/copying the latitude and longitude would be a significant improvement (which could be used with apps like GPS Tracks to find your way). Attached is a screen shot showing the limitation of Evernote, and one possible solution that should be easy to implement. Please add support for this, it is a critical feature to use geolocation data in notes.
Hello Evernote users! Announcement: We are excited to be featured in the Evernote AppCenter Travel section and Top #50 Productivity in the US & Canadian iOS AppStores. Ways to get the iOS app worldwide: 1. http://ideaplaces.com/download 2. Search "Ideaplaces" in the Apple app store. We have been working incredibly hard to build a new iOS app called IdeaPlaces. It provides a new way to use Evernote by linking your notes to locations on a map and providing a way to explore them visually. As Evernote users ourselves we really believe that one of the most valuable things in the Evernote experience is context. With each thought written down, to-do created or photo taken, we believe there is tremendous value in showing contextual information around anything created. Also, we have worked hard to facilitate the sharing of notes and context in the most seamless way possible, during the note creation process. App summary and why it matters to Evernote users: http://blog.ideaplaces.com/ideaplaces-app-a-new-way-to-experience-evernote-around-places/ ——————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————— Here are screenshots and explanations of the features to give you a good idea of how it works. Visualization of notes After you link your Evernote account to IdeaPlaces your notes are sync'd and you can view all of them from points on a map. This allows you to explore all of the notes you have that contain location meta data. You can even create places and attach notes to them. By doing this, any note added to a place will then have the location meta data of that place. We have integrated with two main API's: Foursquare and Google Places. Ability to create robust notes quickly. Sharing integrated in the process. We have realized that creating notes from your phone has to be simple or users simply wont take notes from their device. This is why we worked hard on creating an incredibly fast way to create notes. Right from the visual map screen you can tap on the create note icon or wave the phone on any screen to start the note creation process. The note creation process allows you to add and edit the following: Title Location (pre-input & editable) Users to share the note with (text or email) Standard text Photo's (multiple sizes) Notebooks (including shared notebooks) Tags Location-based reminders To-do based notes and shopping reminders are easy to forget, but with location based reminders we are hoping to make them a thing of the past. In the note creation process simply set the location and tap reminder to make sure you get notified the next time you are in a 75m radius. Location enhanced notes Understanding the context of the note while you are actually viewing the note is important for you or anyone you share the note with. This is why we have enhanced all of the notes viewed or shared within the app with both google map and street view. These images link directly into google maps and provide an easy way to get back into IdeaPlaces. Feedback and beta testers We are looking for passionate users of Evernote like us to test our application and help us with feedback. If you would like to help this app evolve into a truly amazing Evernote experience we would love your help. Here is our contact email to request a free coupon code or become an active tester on Testflight. firstname.lastname@example.org http://www.ideaplaces.com Download the app on the iOS app store now! We are actively developing the application and can guarantee a response within a few hours. We are still in the early stages of this app and believe that it can have a tremendous impact on the way that users use Evernote now and in the future. We can't wait to see what this will become! Let us know what you think and if you have any comments or suggestions post below! Thanks
In answer to my question 'Where has Places view gone in ios7 update' I received the answer 'it may have been removed'! Location is visible for individual notes, but you can no longer search on a map for nearby notes. With the last update they reduced the previous functionality, not allowing users to limit search to a single notebook/tag, but now they appear to have removed it completely! I'm rather annoyed by this as they have previously pushed this usage and it is one of the main ways I use Evernote. Does anybody have any suggestions of third-party apps or other alternatives?
Announcing a beta for TuskTools LifeLog: This is a mobile app - iPhone for now, Android likely if there is sufficient demand - which records the places you visit throughout each day. Whenever you depart a location that you’ve been at for about 5 minutes or more, LifeLog adds a note into a “LifeLog” notebook in Evernote, indicating where you were and when you arrived there. Just keep it running in the background on your phone and it will do its thing. Currently there's no interface in the app on the phone beyond a simple display of your last recorded location - the idea being that Evernote provides the interface. This may change going forward, depending on user feedback. Also, there's a lot of room for potential enhancement - for example: adding in photos that you took during the relevant time period, recording calendar appointments from that time, linking to other Evernote notes that were created at that time, etc. Again, user feedback will help to provide direction. This is an initial beta version and hasn't undergone much testing yet, so testers and feedback are welcome! If interested in testing, please sign up to download the app. Please send questions, issues, and feedback to email@example.com.
