android (Archived) link with address book - Droid

Recommended Posts

Is my evernote app supposed to link with my address book. when i go to send a note to someone i have to manually enter the whole email address. seems it should be linked with my google contacts, no?

Thanks for the suggestion.

does that mean its not supposed to be linked with my address book? Its a real pain to have to lookup an address and then type it in.

We actually do have address book integration but it's just too hidden.

When your cursor is in the To field, you can hit the center D-PAD button or the Enter key and your address book will appear.

We'll work on making that feel like less of a hidden feature in the future.

It would seem simpler for you--and better for user security--if you simply integrated with Android's e-mail feature and used that to send the e-mail instead of doing it within Evernote (like the PC client does with PC e-mail clients). I have a few other aps that do this, and it works very well. This way, you don't have to build a lot of features that already exist, and Android users don't have to question why they need to share contact information with your ap (which many people are nervous about doing). .

Formatting notes into an email turns out to be pretty tricky and memory intensive.

Across all Evernote applications we're sending note from the server. This was the only way we could consistently send emails that are readable on the majority of Mail and Web Mail clients.

The workaround does not work on my G1 - when I select/tap an contact it does not appear in the evernote "To" field so I have to enter the mail adress manually?!

The next version will have a more direct way to specify addresses from your contacts.

Thanks

Maybe you could look at Note Everything or 3banana (and others) and see how they implement 'share' or 'send' on the droid.

I've only used the gmail send function and it works great as it filters the email addr.

This might be one area to not use your email servers and in fact probably should NOT use them if I understand the situation correctly.

TIA

I have over 1000 emails in my contacts, so its a pain to have to go thru them to find the email I want.
