PLEASE READ THIS if you've been frustrated that it doesn't work. Yes, when you first install, it appears that it's stuck in a loop asking you to add it to home screen when it's already there. Remove it from your home screen. Then add it back to home screen by choosing a widget. EN widget will give you a choice of 5 different widgets to add. Choose whichever you prefer. You can then further customize the note types you prefer to have a shortcut to. It DOES work and you can go back to loving your favorite green elephant. When I searched for the widget to add it back to home screen I kept thinking it wasn't in there, because I was looking for the image that is shown here with the quadrants Note+/Camera?Mic/Search. It doesn't look like that in the widget set up because that's only one of the variations. Look for it alphabetically in your widgets and it will be right next to Evernote. Expand that and play around with the various choices. I'm still trying to decide if I want a 1x1 on home page only or dedicate an entire home screen to the many shortcuts. But my 1x1 is working. Each time I open it, a new text note is ready for me.
Could be better Notes don't appear with the same formatting when displayed via the widget. In my case, I had a numbered list as a note. But the widget displays all the items on the list without that numbering.
cant edit directly from widget? whats the point of having a huge evernote on my home screen if i cant edit from it? why it opens the app? need this one feature and it should be good
Love the app, hate the widget! I put the "Evernote Widget" on my home screen but when I tap it to open it it just tells me how to put it on my home screen. VERY frustrating!!! LG phone
Use for most everything! Like the customization and it's cross sync ability sign all my devices ~ Dell Venue Tablet
Doesn't work I don't have the widget icons on my tablet. Can't add the widget to home screen. Very disappointing...
