Search is the most important aspect of evernote. All the nice data entry features are useless if you cant find what youre looking for. I'm frequently annoyed by search results on windows desktop app and iphone app. When I enter a search term, the top matches are usually larger notes with my search term appearing once somewhere in the body, while notes with my search term in the title are down lower in the result list. I typically create a title for my notes that includes words I am likely to search for, so having these way down the result list (not even on the first page) is frustrating. Search engines always rank search terms in the title higher than in the body. Secondly, you can improve search results by applying term-frequency/inverse-document frequency (TF-IDF). Ref: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tf%E2%80%93idf Also, you should be using standard stop words. Common words in the search phrase, like "a", "and", "the", "or" should be ignored or treated as "OR"/"not required" and weighted very low. Currently evernote treats them as required terms and seems to weigh them as highly as other words. Ref: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stop_words
for poeple who had typed thousands of notes in evernote...,many tabs are shared by alot of notes...so when you search notes in certain tag...many will appear..and even if you type 2 tags the notes will appear in most recent order not the one with highest number of matching tags..i sufgest that notes should be listed with the one matching the highest number of tags first...
