    Can Evernote record an audio note from the Mac desktop version? Or is it only for the iPhone version?

    • Andrew Sinkov

      @Keith At this time, the desktop versions of Evernote don’t let you create audio notes from within the app. If you create an audio file in another program, say GarageBand, you can always drag it into Evernote.

    Can evernote also record in Windows 7?

  • chris benfield

    For info, I’ve just deleted Evernote from my HP Mininote. Loved the idea of it but it was painful to use on a small screen, for a variety of reasons. One problem was a lack of differentiation between note window and overall window and the scrolling arrows and control buttons for each. I never seemed to get it right first time and got fed up losing my place and starting again. Maybe I could have fiddled with settings to improve it. Maybe I should have paid up for the full version. Anyone else had these problems?

  • Andrew

    Great podcast… er, blogcast (why?)! A couple of questions/comments:

    What’s the reason behind the 25MB note limit? I’ve got a few PDFs that I’d like to throw in, but they’re too big.

    I love Phil’s screensaver idea! Does the Windows client have a thumbnails directory? I couldn’t find one.

    NHice analogy with the pickles: Evernote’s even green :).

    Looking forward to the new Windows client; I’m using the alpha right now. Is there any danger of losing data with it?


  • Alan L Henderson

    I’m a Premium user and I’m hooked. At the top of my wish list is a Linux client. Evernote under Wine doesn’t cut the mustard.

    I’ve shelled out $$$ for VMware Workstation so that I can run the Evernote Windows client in it’s own Unity window in Linux. Works very well but I dream of the day that a Linux client appears.


    I suspect the that a Linux client would bring in a lot of new users. There are almost as many Mac Evernote users as there are Windows users despite Microsoft’s OSs having 10+ times the market share. Mac and Linux users, on average, are more savvy and they’re early adopters.

  • Kim

    Can I import my del.icio.us tags and bookmarks into Evernote?

    • Andrew Sinkov

      @Kim Yes you can import your Delicious bookmarks. Log into your web account, click the settings tab, and scroll to the bottom of the page. There’s an Import section there.

  • Waldeis

    In the podcast you was speaking about usage of the Mac Picture Screenshot to present Evernote Notes/Images.
    This brought up the question, that i don’t know if there is a local storage of all my notes which i could access (Mac)?

  • David Holden

    One more vote for the linux client.

  • vladimir

    Is there a chance to see a android version soon???

  • John

    Yet another Windoze client but nothing for Linux or Android? Seems daft to me…..

  • Coin Sorter

    One thing i like about it is it’s Cross-platform. Evernote works on Macs and Windows, so having to use one OS at home and a different OS at work should not be a problem.

  • Kostandinos

    Great idea on the screensaver, though I don’t I follow completely. Any chance on a (video) tutorial on this? New user, but haven’t really gotten going just yet. 🙂

  • Mark Woodward

    ANDROID?? Seems like a natural fit. I realize that the Iphone is much larger (now)…but p l e a s e and Android client?

  • ScottB

    Add an Android app and I’d use it.

  • Grammata

    One Linux version here too, please 🙂
    Doesn’t windows have enough, spread the wealth!

  • Laguna

    Great podcast there. I love the idea of the screensaver and glad that Evernote works on both Mac and Windows. 🙂

  • Sami

    Evernote for Linux, please

  • Stil Nuts

    I’d really really LOVE an Android app.

  • Myke

    Another vote for a Linux client!

  • Tom

    Is is possible to use a keyboard shortcut for clipping in Safari on the Mac?

  • ScottNYC

    I recently purchased evernote premium subscription, and when trying to import my PDF’s for school, im getting errors saying its exceeding the 25mb limit. I had no idea EN cant import files over 25 MB, Gotta go looking for something else now

  • JanVanC

    I have a suggestion for extending the evernote mail input possibility to include labels (as discussed in the blogcast). The easiest would be to add the label to the email address itself.
    Similar to what you can do in gmail (http://www.g04.com/misc/GmailTipsComplete.html#Tip-05)

  • der Igel

    You can automatically import any RSS feed to Evernote through NeverMap serice. Check it out http://NeverMap.com/Tools

    Another vote for a linux client. Evernote is the only thing keeping me from switching to Ubuntu.

  • Alexei

    Yet another vote for a linux client…

  • Paul

    i vote for a linux client also

  • peteregola

    Dear Managers & CEO of Evernote, it isn’t that big an effort to adapt & recompile the (Linux-like) OSX (BSD-based) code to bring EN to the Linux community, is it? Or is it just a matter of deliberate unwillingness (socalled strategic business policy)?? Such a gesture of grandeur could bring you more than just a bunch of new clients …

  • David

    Evernote for linux please.

  • coggins

    Evernote on Linux would be FANTASTIC. PLEASE!?!?! Running the older versions in wine does not cut it…

  • Ron Cannarella

    One more vote for a Linux client, I live by Evernote; I have it on all of my PC’s. Mac’s, browsers and iPhone. I have turned a lot of my colleagues onto the service so that we could collaborate. Now I’m migrting to Ubuntu, but no Evernote client.

    No Evernote no Linux. (Yeah, I like Evernote THAT much!)

  • koolereye

    Evernote is such a great product and I use it daily on a Windows PC for work but I need a Linux version for use on a personal computer. The Linux platform is really evolving and with the next wave of netbooks due out later this year possibly running some form of Linux then it would definitely be beneficial to have a version of Evernote ready for them when they hit. Thanks for all the hard work you put into the product.
