Easy way to jump to bottom of notes on iPhone?

Idea

This has been bugging me since I started with Evernote.... On my iPhone, if I open a long note (and yes, some notes are long), the only way I've found to get to the bottom and type new information is grabbing the scroll bar and dragging it.... forever.  I have Googled about this and I'm surprised to not have found a solution yet.  Is it possible there is no way to have focus be at the bottom of notes when I open them?  It's really tedious to have to embark on a scroll adventure each time I want to add a new item to my note!  Personally, I think that should be the default behaviour, but if not, at least create a setting or a viable shortcut on mobile devices.

I never had that problem as I generally use the iOS app to retrieve info quickly and not edit much. I keep the editing and adding to the Windows app most of the time.

So I just checked to see if there was a way. It looks like iOS opens all notes the very top view and I was not able to locate a setting for it. 

Moved your topic to the feature request for iOS so it can be voted by others.

Thanks @guru it would be great.... if notes are long that tiny iOS scroll bar on my iPhone is not very usable.

I insert new text, lets say a new day in a journal or meeting notes always on top of the note - so, newest entries are at the beginning of a note and not at the end - may work for you as well?

Well, that may work in some cases... but I have a long list that I add new items to the bottom of.  Still think this is a common use case and there should be a way to jump easily to the bottom of the entry field.

Agreed! This has been missing forever. 

I write stories and speeches with Evernote on my iPhone, often with dictation while walking (try it some time). The only problem? There is no way to quickly jump to the end of a note. 

There should be a setting where edit will take you immediately to the bottom of a note. Perhaps an Add function.

Spinweb,

I had the same issue. It's so frustrating. What I do to go down to the bottom of a note is so lame but it gets the job done: what I do is that I just insert any photo as soon as I open the note in question - then Evernote will insert the photo at the bottom of the note automatically. Then I delete the photo and start writing from the very bottom of the note. 

Whenever I do that, it works but as you can see, it's a sad, imperfect solution. I hope the Evernote Team would fix this problem asap.  Hope it helps.

Is there a solution for this yet? I am still having to scroll through my entire note to the bottom for a new entry everyday
