New Look to the Evernote Online Version

I use Evernote, a free note-taking piece of software that I had installed on my PC - and it'd automatically replicate online and I could view all my notes from any device or on any PC, at the drop of a hat. And I had Evernote installed on my PC and my laptop and could add notes to either copy of Evernote as when I logged into the other machine it'd automatically update. So my PC and my laptop were both synchronised - and all my data backed up, all of the time.

Then the first "disaster" - Evernote stopped working on Windows XP. So I had to stop using Evernote on my old PC, although, to be fair, the database was getting a bit large for my hard disk to manage, so it wasn't too hard to just use the online version on my PC.

But, just this week, having been told several times that there's a new online Evernote layout, I decided to let it go ahead - and I don't really like it. At first it looked as if all my notes had disappeared, but they hadn't. It'll take some getting used to and I don't feel as in control as I used to - it doesn't seem as quick/easy to navigate as it used to be.

Everything seems to be hidden at first - then larger when it is in view - meaning I've less visibility over everything that I use.

Maybe when I get used to it it'll appear easier/better, but I do dislike change that's thrust upon me when it comes to software.

Hubby and I use Evernote and haven't liked some of the changes. What we really wish they would do and they won't, even tho people have been asking and begging, is adding a calendar function. Haven't checked the new interface yet, will have to take a peek when I can.

Evernote was preinstalled on my laptop, but I immediately removed it because it is of no use to me.

Evernote has been on my to do list for a long time to check out.

I am an Evernote Junkie. I have it on my desktop and on my tablet. I keep files of the different sites and school related ideas and personal ideas. I write almost all drafts in Evernote on my tablet (lying in bed usually) and then copy and paste onto the site. I love it. I pay for the premium service, and I couldn't live without it. I might just write a post about it.

I don't need a calendar. I use it to take notes, so never any calendar requirement.

It's like Notepad on steroids. I first started using Evernote as a searchable bookmark system. Then it grew from that and I use it for everything

You should do it, it is brilliant for keeping notes, links, information, images - everything.

I used to keep a copy of all my Bubblews posts on it. I've got all my recipes too - and craft suppliers/markets information - and when I was buying a house. Everything!

UK_Writer It works fine for me in Windows_XP although I mostly use it on my Android device. But I see your point forcing users to used a new version by a certain deadline is sometimes frustrating
