I'd love to see the ability to use Evernote like a smart whiteboard (on a touchscreen). Draw a circle or an oval and as soon as the shape is recognised the hand-drawn one is replaced by a smooth graphic one the same size. Hand write some text in it and that text pops up inside the oval or circle in Calibri (or whatever's been set as default). Draw an arrow between one circle and another and a graphical arrow appears in its place in the pre-set arrow colour. Basically I'd like a way to create clear infographics on the fly from hand-drawn input. Ideally there would be a generous collection of graphical symbols, a simple representation of a house for example, and a way to "teach" Evernote, "When I draw this, replace it with that, about the same size." So many ideas and processes can be better explained or toyed with as sketches, but the untidiness of sketches can make them unclear or unappealing. Of course this would work best on a large touchscreen, but until these are ubiquitous (and I imagine a world where every room has one on a wall, perhaps displaying artwork when not in use), scrolling functionality would be necessary when confined to smaller screens. The drawings and flow diagrams should have the ability to contain rich content if necessary: icons would indicate that double or long tapping will open video, audio, a spreadsheet or regular document as a pop-up within the note. Versions could be saved every x minutes so that if a great idea is erased in the process of developing a graphical note, it can be found again and restored.
