Drag and Drop to Move Notes to Notebooks + Keyboard Shortcuts

Idea

The current process of moving notes on the web version between notebooks is too long, there should be an option to drag and drop notes into notebooks like on the desktop version or the ability to do it through a keyboard shortcut

No other modern app that I can think of has such a vastly different experience between devices. I would much rather a fully-functional web app and the native apps just be a wrapper of the web app (like many other tools do).

It isn't hard to bind keyboard shortcuts with actions via javascript. Simple things like moving or deleting a note takes 3 or 4 clicks instead of a single key press or a drag/drop.

If we're talking about the web app vs other devices,  the web versions are pretty much all betas that were never developed to the point they offered a comparable service to the installed clients.  The current beta is still being developed,  and hopefully will be a viable option with something approaching a native app's functionality.

There's a ways to go for the web app yet - and in my (largely non-expert) opinion,  wrapper apps always suffer from the issue that all activities are subject to browser restrictions on access to files & processes.  Browser tech is designed not to let third-party websites have so much access to the host system that they could do mischief if so inclined.  Installed software has a much more 'trusted' situation.  If we want Evernote to be able to set reminders,  copy desktop files,  and generally act as freely as possible to save and retrieve data and provide reminders and other services as required,  I don't know that would be possible.  And I do use a couple of apps that run local instances through Chrome,  but they're more specialised and more self-contained;  if I happen to be offline,  data can be saved locally until it can be passed up to the web - what would that do to a shared note situation though?  If I shared content with anyone else,  they couldn't be sure that the version of the note they see is the latest version - I might be offline and unable to upload updates.

... and don't get me started on the limits of operating through a web based service without a reliable network connection...

I'd just as soon the apps be as function consistent as the platforms allow.  Wrapping a web app scares me a bit based upon the latency native to web apps versus a client sitting on a local machine.

I'm with you, one click to delete a note, two clicks to move a note, one click to add a reminder.  This was better in older versions of EN.  The newer versions seem to place oft used functions under a menu.  Makes little sense to me to hide such things. Looks prettier I suppose.  Or my use case is off center to the norm.  End up creating my own hot keys to replace the hidden items.  Even with that EN is the best tool in my kit.  :)

I know what you mean, but I've seen Evernote's many versions of a web app; never 
fully-functional
