Evernote for iPhone gets its first major update in a few months, and it was well worth the wait. The latest release (version 2.0) introduces landscape support, thumbnail view, Favorites sorting, speed improvements, and lots of other enhancements. Update/install the latest from the App Store.
Evernote now supports landscape orientation for many of its application screens. This is particularly useful when creating or editing a note, as it brings up the spacious landscape keyboard.
Turn your iPhone on its side when in Notes View to launch thumbnails. This side-scrolling view is great for quickly scanning through your notes. Tap on a note to access it, or hold your finger on a note to get a quick zoom.
Sort your favorites
Evernote for iPhone now lets you change the order of your favorites. Go to Favorites, tap Edit, then press on the three horizontal lines on the right side of the note. When you do this, the note pops out, letting you move it to any position you like.
There’s now an embedded browser within the app. Whenever you click on a link in a note, the browser will launch right inside of Evernote. This makes viewing web pages, and returning to your notes when you’re done, a whole lot faster and easier.
Lots of other improvements
In addition to the big things, we’ve also made a number of smaller (but no less important) enhancements
- The application loads quicker
- A nip here, a tuck there and the UI just became much more polished
- Attaching a photo to a note is way speedier
- Note geo-tagging is much more accurate
- Improved support for favorites, including access to attached files
As always, we recommend giving you’re iPhone a cleansing reboot after upgrading to the new version of Evernote. Call us superstitious, but that just seems to make it work much smoother.
Like many of you iPhone fans out there, we’re very excited about the recent iPhone 3.0 news. We have lots of ideas for ways to take full advantage of all the new capabilities. Stay tuned.
