The New Evernote for iOS 7

Posted by David Chism | Sun, Sep 22, 2013

I am a big fan of the new iOS 7 for the iPhone and iPad, released to the pub­lic this past week. Design: Looks nice and slick. I like most of it Best fea­ture: the quick access but­tons although I wish you can cus­tomize it a bit. Neg­a­tives: they released a very very bug­gy update on the day iPhone 5s was released. They have had 3 months to pre­pare for this update and it is not ready for release. It crash­es about 10 – 20% of the time. The home screen shows ran­dom notes. Not the lat­est. All what I would say are quick fix­es. But so obvi­ous that I’m shocked they released such crap. The sync­ing is hor­ri­ble. I typed up some impor­tant todos on my trip on my iPad and went to review on my iPhone. It did­n’t sync. And then when I tried I got an error. Also there is so much stuff now on the home page it is one step back for being more effi­cient. I get so lost with infor­ma­tion over­load. As a pre­mi­um user I don’t want to see announce­ments every time I’m in Ever­note. How annoy­ing. Did you guys get a new mar­ket­ing direc­tor with no expe­ri­ence? You should be able to orga­nize the home screen any­way you want. That is the pow­er of Ever­note from the begin­ning: OCD and dis­or­ga­nized peo­ple alike can use Ever­note. I’m in the mid­dle of those peo­ple and get over­whelmed look­ing at the home screen. Also the tags are so bug­gy right now. They don’t show the cor­rect infor­ma­tion. So Ever­note released a pret­ty” look­ing App that needs a major rethink.
