Evernote v8.1 for iOS Released

Idea

Hi all,

We continue to fix bugs and top crashers. This version also re-adds 3D Touch Peek and Pop actions on note lists as well as some additional improvements.

New:

  • Peek into notes from the note list using 3D Touch
    • Press on a note to Peek into a note without marking it as recently viewed
    • Swipe up to expose more options:
      • Set Reminders / Clear Reminders / Mark Reminders as complete
      • Add to / Remove from Shortcuts
      • Share (this opens the share sheet)
    • Press a little harder to Pop into the note editor (in view mode)
    • This works on 3D Touch-enabled devices (iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus, iPhone 7, and iPhone 7 Plus)
  • Improved Reminders swipe actions in the note list
    • For notes without reminders, tapping the swipe action Reminder button adds a reminder and prompts for date
    • For notes with reminders, tapping the swipe action Reminder button gives more options to add/change/remove date, mark as done, or clear reminder

Fixed:

  • Reduction/elimination of App Store sign-in prompt
  • Adding tags to Business notes via autocomplete will now search all Business tags
  • Saved searches created before v8 can be added to shortcuts
  • Filter by tags in joined notebooks
  • Cancel button on verify email screen closes the screen
  • Sync improvements
  • More reliable offline notebook downloading
  • More reliable sending contact info after scanning a business card
  • Fixed crash when canceling from Print screen
  • Fixed crash when opening attachments in other apps
  • Many other bug and crash fixes

You can download the Evernote for iOS app from the App Store.

As always, please let us know what you think.

Cheers!

What's amazing is that after all these years, they're still fixing sync.

I still get the lag when I first open the app and it takes several seconds to do anything.

I am not a power user so if the initial lag gets fixed I would probably not notice as many issues.

I am a "I have that somewhere one sec" user so it really diminishes my opinion of the app that the slowness is from trying to access information once you open the app.

Not specific to v8.1

Shaking the device is an IOS standard (it just seems wrong)
There's also an undo button on the numeric keyboard

Some ideas

1. Are the missing entries shortcuts to saved searches?

2. Can you still see the saved searches?

3 Can you view the shortcuts on any other platform?

One user complained about this and I read somewhere that searches made in shared notebooks (by others) were not working properly on IOS.

Sorry I didn't give detail.  I was on my phone at the time.
I have 6 saved searches that are also shortcuts.
Only 2 of my recently created saved searches/shortcuts were showing up.
The other 4 weren't showing up as Shortcuts OR Saved Searches.  They were simply gone.
Everything works fine in the Windows and Mac clients.  It's an iOS-only issue.

I was able to resolve the issue (via the Windows client) by:

  1. Removing all of the shortcuts that are saved searches.
  2. Recreated all of the saved searches while deleting the originals.
  3. Added them back as shortcuts.

Everything is now showing up in Saved Searches and Shortcuts within the app.

Bug (sorry if it's already been reported):

Saved searches return a count of "0 Notes".  I've tried all my searches.

Feature Request:
The ability to filter by Tags and Reminders in Search Results.

For example, I used to have one Saved Search for all my Bills.  I would then filter by Reminder to see the ones that are still unpaid.  I get around this now by using two different saved searches.

This is normal behavior in the other clients, so I don't think I'm requesting anything strange like asking you to add a widget that feeds my dog.  If I open a Saved Search in the Windows client that say pulls back all my bills, I can then filter further by individual tags like credit, mortgage, etc.  Would be nice to have here.  You already have the filtering in place within the NoteList and the Notebooks.

I can confirm this, having the same experience, though in v8.0.1.  I was one of the lucky ones not impacted so much, so have stayed there.  Though I would rather be on v7.  Too much pain to go back.

Is there any acknowledgement at all of the slowness of this version? I used to use Evernote constantly, I've hugely reduced my usage since this version appeared.

This version: 

  • takes 20+ seconds to open cold start
  • takes 5+ seconds to get back to a responsive app if I switch apps
  • randomly crashes, often taking content down with it, so I am forever switching between the list view and the note view to force it to save
  • camera doesn't allow saving sometimes
  • interface issues whereby it LOOKS like it loaded, so I start tapping, but hasn't, it's just showing what it last did
  • I don't even remember what else - it just doesn't work well

If I wasn't a long-time user and having paid, keep 1000s of notes in my account, I'd have given up by now. As it is I'm just investigating other options, but first choice would really be some feedback from EN that they are aware of the v8 iOS issues and are addressing them.

I concur. Same situation for me!

Would that be like issuing software upgrades and indicating which issues have been fixed

Or how about starting a forum discussion so users can provide feedback

I suppose there could be a standard reply to each post saying: Thankyou for your feedback - we have added it to our followup list

FOR ME EXACTLY THE SAME evernote 8.1 with IOS 8.2.1 on a iphone 6 is everytime slow, freezing, totally unworkable.

 

I'm a paying customer i went through 8.0.1 8.02 8.03 8.0.4 and now with EN 8.1 and still painfully slow and freezing

 

When is Evernote going to fix this ?

 

i'm done with the beta testing testing being a paying customer

In regards to the reported slowness issues.  May I suggest that you do the following 2 things:

1. Allow enough time after upgrading and opening the app for the 1st time post upgrade on your IOS device, for all proper synchronization and possible rebuilds of indexes to occur.

2. Ensure that your IOS device is set to allow both "background app refresh" and specifically background app refresh for "Evernote".  In IOS, Settings -> General -> Background App Refresh.

I had, in an attempt to reduce battery consumption, severely limited the background app refresh on my own IOS devices.  I was experiencing the same slow laginess upon initially opening the app in response to touches and attempt to actually do something.

After I turned on "background app refresh" for Evernote.  This has become a non-issue.

  • More reliable offline notebook downloading

This has not been my experience.  Even with background app refresh on, all of my notebooks have a little indicator bar on them that never seems to go anywhere.

I had to turn off downloading notes again.

How long did you give it?
In my experience, the offline downloading has always been very slow, taking days

As grateful as I am to EN for providing changelogs, right now feature and even bug lists are not as relevant as the overall app performance. App stability and speed are currently cripplingly bad, to the point where I can barely use it well enough to see the changes. Is this being worked on? The reason I ask is that a new version with a major revision bump was just released, and it didn't change the overall app performance, and I can't find any mention of the problem.

If they are aware, and working on a fix, great news! It's frustrating but I can wait, as I have faith in them, having been a paid user for some time. If they are not planning to fix this, then that's bad news! It's even more frustrating, but I'll go through the process of migrating my workflow off.

Sometimes the release notes indicate work being followed up, and sometimes we get a post from Evernote employees.  I've see nothing on "App stability and speed"
All I can do is keep posting the issues in the release discussion
