Thanks

Do you have any notes yet on what's included in the update?

I don't have the full list, but I think the major things were: better support for network errors (so you wouldn't end up back on the login screen after any network error), and support for panning on large images in notes. There was more, but I don't remember for sure.

Here's hoping that Palm is better, not worse, relative to Apple when it comes to gatekeeping 3rd party software updates...

There should be some sort of Hippocratic Oath for the gatekeeper.

This is by no means a post to complain, but I really am curious: why the delay in posting the update? I know that Palm just posted 1.0.4 to fix some security issues (I'm guessing, the ability to install an app via email attachment, which is tres bad from a security perspective). But, not sure what could be the holdup re: Evernote.

Unfortunately, for both Palm and Apple, we have no way to give out application updates directly. We submit the changes to Palm/Apple and wait around until the update magically appears in the App Store/Catalog.

We gave the update to Palm over a week ago ... we're in the same boat as you are.

Hm, you're right, the app should update automatically on your device now.

It looks like this auto-update mechanism doesn't show our release notes.

So what did it take, about a week for Palm to get the update out? Seems a bit slow! I realize they are a smaller company than Apple, but Apple has to manage 50K+ apps vs. 30 (so far). Apple is not 2,000 x the size of Palm!

Anyway, could you guys create a section for the Pre on your release notes page (http://www.evernote.com/about/support/release_notes/) ?

Thanks!

Here's the notes for this release:

* Login using an incorrect username and password will provide better error messages.

* Users can launch the application when the devices is experiencing connectivity problems without having to re-authenticate.

* Users can pan horizontally and vertically in notes.

* Evernote will support the "back" gesture to Save a note.

Will look for a better place to put these in the future.

Thank you guys so much!

The image scrolling is perfect and the backswipe = save is nicely intuitive.

I love the product and am keeping my fingers crossed for some local caching ability on the Pre.

I recommend Evernote to pretty much everybody I meet!

Thanks again!

Local caching is going to be tough ... the Pre currently restricts apps to only 5MB of storage, and we've heard from Palm that they plan to reduce this to 1MB per app.

Yes, we're working on a Pre update, but I don't have a date for when that will be available.

Thanks

Hi, any update for the Palm Pre coming out - ? We are really hoping for 'catagories' - thank you for your activity on this product.

I've heard that the Pre update has been released by Palm, although I haven't confirmed this myself. Try updating from their catalog.

"I've heard that the Pre update has been released by Palm, although I haven't confirmed this myself. Try updating from their catalog."

The catalog was updated today, but Evernote does not appear to be among the apps included.

Was the latest release of Evernote rejected? Or just stuck in what might be a very long queue?

Also, what's in this latest version?

Could you try searching for "Evernote" in the catalog? We see it when we search. The current version is 0.1.13

Same here, 0.1.11. I'm still on webOS 1.1 tho. Perhaps when we upgrade to 1.2 we'll get the newer apps?

Hrm, there seems to be something odd happening in the Catalog. We're checking with Palm to determine why the new version isn't being displayed.

Thanks for the reports

Any update from Palm? My guess is that they've got a big queue now, plus with the push to get the new catalog up...

I see it's out there, today.

What's different about this version? Bug fixes (I never noticed any before) or new features?

Well, I'm now running the new version, and unfortunately I'm getting the same connection errors from a few versions ago. The first time I ran the app, I connected fine but received numerous "Network Error" messages. Restarting the app resulted in it asking me to login again, and then I received a "can't login offline" error or somesuch. Now, I'm connected, but no notes are showing up. Hitting "Refresh Caches" results in another Network Error.

This was as connected via a strong wifi connection. Turning off wifi and connecting via EVDO, and hitting "Refresh Caches," has so far resulted in a continuously spinning circle and no notes. I'll update if I get anything via EVDO.

Update: After 30 minutes or so on EVDO, the circle's still spinning and no notes.

Update 2: Turned wifi back on, no go. Unfortunately, the app is now unusable.

Without local caching, I personally can't use Evernote for anything important. There are times when a network available but a person needs access to their info. I like Evernote and would love to use, but this is a deal-breaker.

I notice the new version keeps telling me whether or not Evernote is online or offline, even when it's not running.

Unless Evernote is doing something interesting in the background, it should not be telling me its status while it's not running.

Incidentally, this issue seems to have resolved itself since the WebOS 1.2 update. Evernote is now acting as I believe is intended...

Thanks for the report, that's good to hear. Once in a while, OS upgrades fix problems for us instead of just creating new bugs for us to fix. :-)

I hate to say, but the improvements were short-lived. I posted this as another topic as well, but then remembered this thread. All of the issues I'd identified before have now resurfaced.
