    I don't think you can, at least in iOS & Android. As much as I use Evernote extensively, not being able to merge notes on mobile devices is why I only rate it with 4 stars instead of the 5-star max.

    When Steve Jobs positioned the iPhone and iPad as post-PC devices, I realized that I was the target market because I rarely do heavy-lifting (things I am more naturally inclined to do on my Macs) on my iPhone or iPad. That said, even if I could merge notes on the mobile, I probably wouldn't.

    I use my iPhone and iPad primarily as consumption devices. Occasionally, I capture, quick edits, and create short notes. Beyond that, I stick to my dual-monitor, 8-core Mac Pro. :D

    Is it just me or does the Evernote app (at least on iOS, Android, and Windows) has become too sophisticated for its own good?

    I like bells and whistles and as a matter of fact, I'm an early adopter of almost anything tech. But as newer versions of the Evernote app comes out, user intuitiveness, it seems, is becoming less and less apparent.

    I miss the older UI where it only takes a single "clock cycle" of my brain to figure things out. Now, I really have to stop whatever thought process I have going and focus on what I want to do inside Evernote to do simple, rudimentary tasks.

    @oj88, I've got to agree with you that there seems to be more functionality with Evernote that I don't often use. It may be due to the fact that they have launched Evernote Business & some of Evernote's increased complexity may be due to that. I wish there was some way you could turn on a "basic" version of it. Of course what is "basic" would be a whole other thread!!

    I completely agree! I actually found myself going back to the stock Notes app now, after they got rid of the yellow pages...huzzah iOS 7. I was turned off with Notes before due to its inconsistencies and being quite unreliable. But now all I want is a simple note taking app with pics, and can sync. Evernote just got super bloated!

    The company has been going through a very rough time since about last year. Executives are leaving and being replaced by mostly neophytes. I don't know where they'll be in a year or so.

    My Premium subscription is still good until October but I'm considering not to renew it.

    i went back to 5.9.9 on windows because v6 UI change was just too different from what I've been used to from all the previous releases. Funny thing is I reformatted a note 4 after updating to a new android version and it offered me 1 yr premium subscription again! I'm now on my 2nd year of free evernote premium subscription from samsung.

    Just got One Note and migrated everything after I got the email about the limit on the number of devices. I'm upset, but I only ever used the free version so I'm not complaining that much.

    Ever since Evernote announced a drastic price increase, I decided to not renew my Premium account. As such, my current plan will end in October.

    But then, as I was looking at their current Plans, I was surprised to see that the Premium plan showing up as only Php 1,100 (roughly USD 24) per year. But here lies the rub... If I access my account and click on Extend my subscription, it'll cost me USD 69.99 (or roughly PHP 3,200) to do it.

    I'm in a WTH moment here.... Don't have a clue behind the reason of the price discrepancy. There doesn't seem to be any mention whether or not the PHP 1,100 is just a promo or introductory price.

    Anyway, I'm thinking I'll just let my current Premium account expire, export/backup my notebooks, create a new Premium account with the cheaper rate, and finally import back my notebooks.

    EDIT: To answer my own question... Apparently, Evernote has different regional pricing. I have created a support ticket asking them how I can move my current account to the PH region, for lack of a better phrase.

    But at P1,100, that's like 65% off. I'll have no quarrel renewing my Premium at that amount.

    I'm back on Evernote. I thank the heavens for the cheap regional pricing. Those still on the fence should make up their minds now. I don't think there's going to be a better offer soon, at least it's unlikely.

    Renewed my subscription at 1/3 the $70 cost.

    Well, this is disturbing.

    Though it's still a bit vague about notes being accessible to Evernote employees. Is it accessible by default BUT they won't touch it unless they're given expressed permission? Or are the notes inaccessible by default (ie. Encrypted) unless the customer opts-in to the program?

    In other words...
    1. The door is closed and locked but EN employees HAVE the key and vows to only use it if the customer allows them, or
    2. The door is closed and locked and EN employees DON'T have the key

    Big difference between the two.
