other (Archived) Evernote for N97 Beta Thread (Discontinued)

132 posts in this topic

Hey folks -

It's been a long time coming but we finally have a beta version of Evernote for Nokia. This version uses the Nokia Web Runtime framework and is targeted at the N97 running S60. We want to work out the kinks before publishing it more broadly. We encourage savvy users to give it a try and provide feedback.

You can download the prerelease version at:

http://www.evernote.com/about/download/ ... seNokiaWRT

This version allows users to create notes and snapshots offline as well as easily access the mobile JavaScript web interface for note searching and browsing.

Please send reports to:nokia-preview@evernote.com

Initial impressions are that it looks good and is going to be better than accessing the mobile site but I do have some concerns:

How do I officially quit it? There's no exit button so I just use the red end button

It's a little sluggish which I guess is due to using the widget framework rather than it being a native application. This is a tad disappointing. It's also jarring to keep OKing all the prompts on startup. Again, a limit of the widget framework.

Does it store notes for offline viewing? I haven't had a chance to try yet but I fear it won't....

I believe the official way of quitting apps on N97 is using the red end button like you did.

The build you tried is expected to be a little sluggish but it should improve in the release candidate. The annoying prompts on startup are indeed a framework limitation, but I believe that you're only prompted once - when you first start the app; and I am hoping that Nokia will improve that in the future.

The app does not store notes for offline viewing at the moment...

Most apps also include an exit button as some use the red end button to hide their application instead.

I think apart from some speed enhancements all I'd really want extra is offline note storage.

Currently trying this out on an RM-505 N97 running 20.0.019 software, on the UK Vodafone network.

I like it so far: it looks slick, I can see all the detail of all the notes I've created elsewhere using the PC app.

Some questions:

* New notes - new snapshot/new audio don't seem to be functional yet?

Comments:

* WLAN access - doesn't work for me - I can only connect via 3G access on the phone. The access point I use works fine for other net access from the N97?

* Takes a long time to view the images folder to add an image file

hey guys, i have been waiting for a version for 5800, but then today i saw this beta for n97. i was so happy. the app is a lil big in size (may be coz its designed for n97). Anyway, it works well

the first page gives me the option to add text note, snapshot, audio or file. apparently snapshot n audio recording seems not to work. but i still like it. Coz i have a mac and i can now sync my notes and other things well. Its a lil slow, but not a big deal. i think i can use this until an app comes out. thank u evernote ppl.

Regards,

Sajin

I have installed the application on my 5800 (same OS) and have the following comments:

The first time it ran great but now when I start it it crashes after it connects to the network. I will restart my phone and see what happens then. The app is installed on my memory card.

Why doesn't it remember my login?

Hello,

It is a great news, however, S60 3rd edition is not so old and many business devices like E series uses it. So, Evernote, c'mon, please make Evernote also for 3rd edition, it may boost your downloads definitively! Many business phone owners will be happy, including me. N97 and N900 are pretty new devices and not exactly for business owners - at least in Nokia's meaning. So, any chance?

Thank you so much for this. I have this widget on my 5800 and, once I realized that it was quirky unless installed in phone memory, it is a wonderful and pretty stable app. It is a joy to use. I have now downloaded the Windows version of Evernote, have the extension in Firefox and now finally realize why so many people are Evernote crazy. Thanks! Please keep up development on this.

It's great to see that you are close to supporting the N97 (and presumably other Symbian devices, with time).

I wanted to use Evernote but when I looked at the website it appeared that you only supported iPhone, Blackberry, and Palm (I can understand the iPhone and the BB, but Palm?). I almost gave up on Evernote. Now that I see Symbian in the works I will start trying Evernote on Windows.

I would suggest that you indicate on your website that Symbian and Android are in the works. Your support of iPhone and Mac, and lack of any mention of Symbian and Android made me think that maybe you were going after that niche (i.e. most Windows users are using Onenote so you were going to focus on Mac/iPhone users).

Thanks for the feedback. When we release support for a platform, we'll announce it and add it to the main web site (e.g. Android was released today: http://blog.evernote.com/2009/12/16/eve ... -its-here/)

The Nokia N97 (Web RunTime) version is still in beta testing, so isn't yet supported or officially announced. When we launch it and start supporting it, we'll publicize it more widely.

Hey folks,

An update is now available for our forthcoming beta release of Evernote for Nokia N97.

You can download the new version at:

http://www.evernote.com/about/download/get.php?file=PrereleaseNokiaWRT

This release addresses many of the issues and provides many improvements, including:

* improved sync

* better startup performance

* corrected issue with duplicate menu bar

* added tag completion when entering tags in the editor using hardware keyboard

* fixed issue with notes failing to upload on first try

* fixed issue with prompting for user/pass when accessing note list

* fixed issue with application crashing at startup after being prompted for Network Access

* fixed issue with application crashing when the device cannot provide network channel

* fixed issue with application crashing when it's backgrounded by cell provider's TOS system popup

* fixed issue with suspending application in some cases

Please note that Evernote for Nokia utilizes Nokia's APIBridge. Without APIBridge you will not be able to make Snapshot, Voice or File notes. We're currently working on packaging our application together with APIBridge, but in the meantime, you would have to download APIBridge separately from here: http://developer.nokia.com/info/sw.noki ... ridge.html

Please send reports to:nokia-preview@evernote.com,

Enjoy
