Hi! As I understand from using Evernote and this discussion, Evernote does not sync on save/close and does not support Push. This means I have to press F9 or sync manually every time I edit or create a note. Why? Because I never know when I'll switch from my Android phone to my PC. I could also use the 15 minute sync option, but this uses battery and I still would have to sync manually if I needed a note synced right away. So therefore I ask are Evernote working on sync immediately on save/close and a Push service for Android and PC? That way Evernote would work just like OneNote does today, and I wouldn't need to see the Synchronization Complete notice every 15 minutes. Could this be a Premium feature, or would it cost even more to implement? http://jooh.no/web/Evernote_saves_but_doesn't_sync_2014-05-01-17-49-54.png
The Reminders feature has been rolled out to all platforms except Windows by now. I was able to use them with iOS and Android - unfortunately my MacBook Air is being serviced right now, so i can't say for sure what happens on OS X. What i can say is what i assume should happen from experience with other apps - and here are my observations: iOS supports two kinds of notifications: local and push. Local notifications are created by an app and put in a queue where they wait until iOS shows them. Push notifications are sent from the cloud whenever they are needed - think of notifications from Twitter, Facebook, etc... Android's equivalent is called 'Google Cloud Messaging for Android' or 'GCM'. What Evernote does with reminders in iOS is the following: Local notifications are created by the app and put in the queue mentioned before. When Evernote syncs the note with the reminder to their servers, NO push notification is created. The note with the reminder is synced back to all other devices automatically or manually. Automatically for example on Android devices if you set up background sync. Manually for iOS devices because no background sync is possible on this platform. Now take for example an iPhone and an iPad. Create a reminder on one device and wait for its notification: Right, you only get it on the device it was created on. Why is that? Like i said before, iOS lets no app sync in the background. This is exactly the problem, that mcmatt has outlined here: gazumped is wrong, because it has nothing to do with any rollout and Metrodon's suggestion to sync manually is pointless, if there's already a working solution for this problem. And who reminds me to sync all my iOS devices manually if Evernote can't do it? Add a Nexus 4 to the iPhone and iPad. On the Nexus 4 Evernote is set to sync every two hours in the background to preserve valuable battery life. Let's assume it's 8:00 AM and you create a reminder for 8:30 AM on your iPhone/iPad and see what happens: The device you created the reminder on, will display a notification, the other one will not. The Nexus 4 will display a notification if Evernote synced in the background after you created the reminder and before you wanted to be notified. Now add a Nexus 7 to the mix as well and create a reminder on it: You'll get no notifications on the iPhone & iPad. And, like before, you'll only get a notification the Nexus 4 if it synced at the right time. Would you call that reliable, robust or user friendly? Hardly. The proper technical solutions are available and if Evernote used them, it would work like this: Set up a reminder on any iOS or Android device and it is triggered on all your iOS or Android devices without any manual syncing. You could even turn off Evernote's background syncing on Android completely and still get notified. To me it seems like this feature was rushed out the door without too much thinking about it - with other words: broken by design. It's up to Evernote to fix this as soon as possible, so that people can properly use reminders on their iOS and Android devices.
I travel a lot for work and carry an Android phone, iPad, and laptop at all times with Evernote loaded on each. I hop on and off of planes and I can't always sync Evernote on each device before losing an internet connection. What I want is to be able to update a notebook on my Android phone and have the same update pushed to all my other devices automatically, so when I hop on the plane, my iPad will be up-to-date even if I didn't launch Evernote and sync it before losing my connection. Is that functionality possible on either the free or paid version?
