Things I wish Evernote would do.

No matter how much we like a piece of software, there is always something else that could be done to improve it.  Here is a short list of what I have come up with in the last few months of using Evernote.

I realize that Evernote is not a to-do list manager and that it was not designed to do projects.  However, it would be nice if you could tie two notes together in some kind of relationship. For example, I would like to have the ability to relate one note to another in some other way than with tags.   Again, I know that it isn't project management software, but I would really like to make one note a successor/predecessor of another note.  That way, I would be prompted to look at the next note in the list when you I got done with the first note.

In premium, Evernote puts related notes at the bottom of the screen.  However, it would be nice if the user had some control over what notes are related.

Reminders are great.  how about recurring reminders?  That would be handy.

Add one more feature to the camera.  Have it so you could scan Bar codes or QR codes and Evernote would look up the product information and add it right into a note for you.  Now that would be cool!

On the iPhone screen real estate is precious.  Using up about 1/4 of the screen showing your last two notes in very tiny font is almost worthless.  I would rather have that room for a slightly larger "Type a quick note" section.

That's it so far.  Bottom line, it is excellent software and  much better than a to-do list manager.  A few tweaks and it would be outstanding.
