    hi there,

    It would be useful to have more formatting for notes written straight into Evernote (choosing numbering to start at a given number, setting tabs, ) with just more general formatting ability – or have I missed all of this?!


  • James McLellan

    I echo Francesca’s suggestion and would add that highlighting (in all notes) would also be very helpful.
    While I’m at it … please bring back CTRL-click for making check boxes. It’s much easier than the hot key combination when trying to quickly make To-Do lists.

  • Richard Harrison

    Nice app – also have it on my iPad. Won’t upgrade because I hate time based payments. Rather pay $35 one time…and good forever. Don’t want to rent / lease this app.

    Thanks, Richard

  • Fred Zelders

    Dragging a Tweet from the Twitter app (Mac OS X) and dropping it on the Evernote icon in Dock does not create a new entry with Tweet in Evernote 🙁

  • Jocuri

    this is awsome 😀

  • iadvize

    Like the app, but can’t stand time based payments either. I would rather pay a one time fee and be done with it.

  • Vita Reid

    $45 a year is an excellent amount to pay … The annual fee more than pays for itself for the convenience and monetary savings alone! I’ve saved so much money by no longer having to buy so many pens, paper, and notebooks. The time I save by not having to look for things … or keep to-do lists and notes all over the place and not even remember where I put them. I cannot even begin to tell you how much time I’ve saved by having every single note in one centralized location. Evernote is feature-rich and is totally awesome! Evernote rocks! Thank you Evernote for making my Vita Reid, Inc. so much more manageable!

  • ewellman

    I second what Richard Harrison said about a one time fee. Drip feeds are killing me.

  • K S Kumar

    It would be great to combine the functionality of a To DO app with evernote – ie assigning a due date, category and calendar integration of tasks

  • Marcus Solberg

    I love Evernote but I can’t use it as my primary tool for storing notes and information due to the fact that it’s not possible (as far as I’m aware) to have the option to structure your notes in an outline format (like for example “ActionOutlie from Green Parrot, which is a simple outliner which I absolutely love and that works well with GTD etc).
    I want to be able to organize and have an overview of my notes in an outline structure. As Evernote works right now it feels like a big (searchable) mess to me after a while.

    Anyone else feel like this to or have any suggestions?

    • Marcus Solberg

      It’s supposed to say “ActionOutline”.

  • TC

    In addition to the creation and modified (sorry, updated) dates it would be great to be able to set a Reminder date for a record linked to an alarm, either via iCal or within Evernote. What’s the point in storing everything in EN so you don’t need to worry about it if you don’t get reminded of its existence when its needed?

  • Jody

    I love the Android with the Evernote app but I can not find the etch-a-sketch button that you talked about. 🙂


  • nancy landry

    i use the app for copying docs. fr work. It would be nice to br able to get web clips fr. ipod touch 4th gen.

  • Pat Proctor

    I’m testing Evernote and considering the upgrade to have added features. I like how well things sync together, but the format isn’t very good. You need to have an option for mind mapping all of the notes together. Buy out iThoughts and put these features into Evernote and you’ll really have something here.

  • Charles H. Green

    I have to disagree with the requests for structured outlining capability; well, not disagree, since it’s strictly a matter of preference, but let me suggest another view.

    Back in the early days of the internet, there was a debate about structured indexing vs. tagging. Yahoo originally was a major competitor in the “portal” space and went the structured route, employing people to continually catalog and organize content.

    Today that seems kind of silly. Once you get to a certain level of massive data, organizing it just takes too much time. On top of that, computing power has gotten better so it’s easier to search things. I remember realizing I could stop organizing all my email into folders on Outlook, and just rely on search to find old emails–it was very liberating.

    I applaud Evernote for putting in all kinds of ways to set tags and search on words, phrases, symbols, etc. Even if I’m sloppy and don’t put in tags, I can still search on raw text. I have never not been able to remember enough about something to find it via searching on words.

  • Jeff O

    I agree TC, a reminder feature is really the missing link with Evernote.

    Do not add more text formating features if it means slowing down the application and/or cluttering up the user interface.

    No one likes reoccuring fees, but I don’t feel it is realistic to make a one time payment for an unlimited amount of future features. We all want to see the product evolve and can’t predict what it will.

  • Outryder

    I use this app with my ipod touch now. it is nice when I use my desktop. it a seemingly seamless endeavor just to keep track of my self. I think I maybe upgrading this app soon.
