Looking at the iOS rating for EN7 which is currently 2.5 on the App Store, the plethora of complaints and functional inadequacies of EN7, I'd like to ask why this was ever released when it's clear that it was far from ready? This has seriously shaken my confidence in EN in what has been a solid app ever since I can remember. I use EN every day ALOT and if it wasn't for having a mac air and having had the presence of mind to retain v5 on iOS, I'd be facing the horrific prospect of frustrating workflows. I'm wondering what went wrong with EN's quality control pre-release and asking if this is a one-off or the way of things to come? I need robust reliable tools. Not software that leaves me nervous when an update is released. Admittedly, this is not only EN. Apple must take the brunt of this fiasco with iOS 7, which also seems to have lacked quality control. Is there any assurance from EN that this won't happen again? (When it's fixed! Still looking for an update)
Evernote Focus: New Features/New Users vs Fewer Bugs Some of us have been complaining for over a year now that the Evernote development/release process has had a major change in focus/philosophy. It has been quite clear to me that Evernote places much more value in getting out new releases than in fixing existing bugs and reducing the number of new bugs introduced with the release. It would seem that Evernote is doing this order to get/keep the attention of the tech review/blogger community, and thereby continue to attract new users/customers. Well, it looks like this flawed policy is finally being publicly recognized by this same community: As Warner Crocker from GottaBeMobile.com wrote: Beware Of Buggy Evernote, Which Seems To Have Privacy And Audio Issues Evernote Bugs Indicative of Larger Issues in Mobile Tech Evernote, the bug-ridden elephant | jasonkincaid.net
I am an Evernote user since the middle of 2010 and have spent much time to migrate all my information to this product in the last years. But now I see that this was a big mistake. Many bugs will never be fixed even they are described in detail by the community. They seem to be forgotten for Evernote but they still exist, even after years! And no, I make no further example because there are enough of them in the forums.The product is getting even more bugs over the time. Every update has NEW problems.There is not one single version that really works without bugsOn android you have to re-install and sync the database nearly after every update to keep it running (over the time I have had enough phones and tablets to see that this are really problems of Evernote and not of the hardware)Shared notes are making advertising even for paying usersNow I see that shared notes are even showing a big advertising-popup to create an evernote-account every time my customers open it. What the f*ck. Sorry, but this is the next thing that I really can't believe because it destroys my workflow a step further.The UI downgrade on Windows Desktop makes it still difficult to read and use. And no, stepping back to version 4 is not a solution, it would only be a further workaround.What makes me so angry: In 2010 I tested Evernote over a time of 6 months and had been sure that the product keeps serious because Evernote has promised this by the slogan "100 year company" so I have spent much time to migrate all things to Evernote in the last years. Now I see that I have to do all the work again to migrate away from Evernote. --------------------- You can compare Evernote like this example with a car: Evernote: Hey, our car has now air conditioning.Customers: Wow 6 weeks later: Evernote: Hey, our car has now comfortable leather seatsCustomers: Wow 6 weeks later: Evernote: Hey, our car has now automatic driveCustomers: Wow 6 weeks later: Evernote: Hey, our car has now a motor that is 20% strongerCustomers: Wow ... and so on 2 years later: Customer asks: When does your car get wheels so we can start driving with it???? --------------------- Sorry to say all this but the development of this product is really frustrating because I have relied on it.
