Evernote for Android "Share" Function sign now

The Android operating system provides for a common "Share" function available throughout the OS and available for software developers to implement without their applications.

This "Share" function is basic to the Android operating system and allows applications to communicate with one another and literally "share" information between applications. For example, "sharing isunbelievably great if you tweet stories a lot, send a lot of links to people, or save information all day long for use elsewhere (1)".

Evernote, a leading note-taking service recently entered the Android market with their free Evernote application for Android devices. While in beta testing (open to the public via Evernote.com), the Evernote for Android application adhered to the Android platform and provided the standard "Share" function within their program. This made Evernote a stellar application in every sense of the word.

However, once the Evernote application hit the Android Market (out of beta), Evernote chose to remove the "Share" function from their initial public release citing problems implementing this function across different Android devices (2).

The ability to "Share" across Android applications is considered to be a core function of the Android OS. Removing this function from an application seriously diminishes the usefullness of an application. With Evernote's primary use being to capture, organize and find notes, links, documents and images of all types, the decision to remove this basic function from the Android version of their Evernote application severely limits it's usefullness as the premier note-taking application it should be for Android users.

We ask that Evernote developers please reconsider their decision to exclude the "Share" function in their Android application. If indeed there is a conflict between Android devices that makes this difficult to implement in one single application, then we ask that different versions be made available for different devices (ie. Evernote for Droid, Evernote Classic for G1/Hero/Cliq Users, etc.).

As Android users and Evernote supporters, we want to fully support Evernote's entrance in the Android Market. We want to be able to leave nothing but positive comments and rating on the Android Market for the Evernote application. For many of us (the undersigned), that's impossible to do without the "Share" function included within the application.

It should be noted that we consider the negative comments and lower ratings for the Evernote Android application to be very unfair to the makers of Evernote. Getting such negative feedback will hurt their standings in the Android Market, and that may negatively impact Evernote's future support of Android. We feel it necessary to address this issue promptly while the Evernote application is still in it's infancy.

Evernote ... please bring back the "Share" function in whatever form necessary to make it work within your Android application.
