It's very interesting, but it's easier for me to manage with fewer notebooks and use tags and saved searches to pull it all together. And, I do love Evernote's batch editing!

I am postponing tonight's Hangout for a couple of days as my Mother is in hospital and I need to attend to her needs. As she is  now improving I will be in a position to host the Hangout in two days time. 

Thanks everyone for your interest - I hope the new time is convenient for some of you.

I had been hoping to host some Hangouts on Air from my cruise ship while I am on holidays but one can't use apps with video streaming from the ship as they are a drain on the satellite connection.  

As soon as I am back on Terra Firma I will resume a program of Hangouts.

Just bought a new Samsung Galaxy Note 3 phone and it came with a 24 month Premium Evernote account. As I was about to move to Premium this was a nice surprise. Worth checking out if you are in the market for a new phone.
