    My Evernote Wishlist

    I love Evernote so much but the more I rely on it as a serious tool for storing my digital life on, the more I need Evernote developers to stop chasing fanciful Google Chrome and iPad functionality and go back a step and close some core functionality gaps. Evernote is a mind blowingly powerful productivity tool. For a moment, please can you stop worrying about getting an ‘app’ out for the latest gadget and concentrate on core features that make Evernote bulletproof.

    1. Remote wipe – it’s happened to me already. Lent laptop and realised this machine had a shared user profile. Would love to have had remote wipe feature. Easy to do. Just Log onto website, request Remote Wipe. Pop up with random keycode. Then when any Evernote client syncs it becomes corrupt if the correct keycode is not entered. When I contact tech support, their best suggestion was to delete account and let it sync to blank!

    2. Secure login when opening client feature – as above scenario, option to force login on client. Simple check box on client. Password already stored to allow syncing. Should be easy.

    3. Bigger permitted file size – competitors allow 250mb, more storage per month (premium or create super-premium). Online storage is competitors only advantage. They have very poor tagging and clipping etc. Evernote can easily compete on storage functionality by just adding more space.

    4. Real sharing – please get that phase 2 rolled out. Remember your core promise. Share everything across all platforms. Web only sharing is a gimmick. Biggest wish is to allow more precise permissions on files and folders to allow sharers to do all or either view, edit, delete and add notes. And for all shared notes to be seen inside sharers accounts not just linked. The idea is we are all looking at the same notebook but depending on your permissions you see/edit/add/delete different notes.

      Elliot thank you for the suggestions.

  • Miles Taub


    You mention in this podcast that you keep your tax returns in Evernote and you’re not worried about the security issues (ex. SSN, salary…). Assuming you have the tax forms as PDF, why not open the PDF in Preview (Mac Only), save it with as an Encrypted PDF (enter a password) and then at least you have the PDF itself protected, no?


    • Andrew Sinkov

      Miles, that’s a great suggestion. Thanks.

    Reminders for Evernote notes?

    I would definitely consider going Premium with reminders for notes. But they would have to be full-featured reminders, i.e. the ability to buzz you on your computer PLUS be able t send an email out to you, so I could even send it to my phone using the phone’s text/email address.

    Also, can the Leon and Heather customer service house boat travel down to Lake Erie?

    what portable scanner do you recommend, im looking for a USB powered on that will do 8 1/2 by 14 down to business card sized. thanks in advanced

    • Phillip Wilson

      I use ScanSnap with Evernote and LOVE IT.

  • Geraldo

    I love evernote too. It has enormous potential to help organize my crazy life. I just want to be able to use evernote on my ipad without it crashing (unusable) and to be able to edit a note on my droid that was created with my mac. Evernote has acknowledged these issues, but has not released any fixes yet.

    When can we expect updates to ipad, mac, and android applications?

  • acaireviewonlinemaker

    I love Evernote thats all i can say..

  • joe

    Hey, i like your podcast, any chance it will be available through the android app in the future??


  • Lindsey

    Well I definitely couldn’t survive without Evernote. I am 150% more organized, my life is seamless – as an entrepeneur you often have to move between work and personal quickly, and I actually use the tool to clip while creating mockups for my apps, I then store and share the mockups from Evernote. I love the idea of an all-inclusive workspace. I would love to see some optional addons/ extensions/ widgets built for Evernote ie. To do list, pdf drag & drop feature, maybe a calculator… There are so many options. But first, just more memory! I fill up to soon and find myself chaotic until I can refresh… Tx!

  • Heather

    The Evernote Offshore Support Vessel will not be traveling to the cold, cold, north of Lake Erie any time soon.

    However, the Land Support Vessel may be in the area later this summer. Keep your ears on upcoming podcasts 😉

    Question: does your public API contain everything that I would need to write a clone of your desktop client? I’m interested in writing my own specialized mini-client but am worried that big chunks of functionality aren’t publicly available.

    • Andrew Sinkov

      Cory, our own clients are essentially built using the same API.

  • Chumio

    Hi there, great program just wondering if you plan to ever get the upload limit increased to at least 1 gig? I am wanting to start uploading all my invoices but I have a 5 year back log.

    I am a premium user and I have a LOVE / HATE thing for Evernote.

    Things I love about Evernote:
    1. Searchable images
    2. Iphone App
    3. Notebooks to organize all images into groups

    Things I hate about Evernote:
    1. Not enough space for a serious user.
    2. Not enough bandwith (upload limitations)
    3. No option to purchase more space or bandwith.

    Must-Have Updates:
    1. Multiple Users and Permission-based Sharing of Notebooks
    2. Integrated Google Calendar
    3. Integrated Google Docs
    4. Integrated Contacts
    5. Multiple Computer Sync

    and life would be grand!

    And Thank you,

    Can you guys clarify, with regard to the upload limit: Phil indicated on this episode that the limit applies only to “new” content. Just to be clear, does or does this not include updates to existing notes? And if so, is it only the text within the note? or the whole changed note’s size that would account against the limit?

    I started to think that perhaps the clarification meant that the upload limit DOES NOT include even updates to existing content, which would be a real paradigm shift in my understanding/use of evernote. Can you clarify? Thanks. Loving the product and podcast.
