Say hello to the newest member of the Evernote family: Evernote for Android. After months and months of development, we’re incredibly excited to unveil this shiny new version of Evernote. As you would expect, Evernote for Android is free and available in the Android Market.
Evernote for Android allows you to create text notes, snap photos, and record audio. In addition, you can easily attached files to your notes. Free subscribers can add PDFs, text, audio, or image files. Premium subscribers can attach any file they like, as long as the total note size is under 25MB.
When creating your notes, Evernote for Android lets you specify titles, tags, and destination notebooks.
Find all your notes, any time
Evernote for Android comes equipped with native note browsing, which means that you can easily browse and search through all of your notes. Thanks to Evernote’s synchronization features, all the notes you make in the desktop or web versions of Evernote are instantly accessible from your Android phone—and vice versa.
There’s also Evernote’s image recognition, which automatically recognizes text contained within snapshots—this is great for everything from business cards to wine labels to whiteboards.
When viewing your notes, Evernote for Android lets you choose between a fancy thumbnail view or a simpler list view. If you’re on a speedy network, then opt for the thumbnail view. If you’re on a slower network, or one that charges based on data use, you can go with the slimmed-down list view. Your choice.
Check the menu
To maximize the amount of visible space, we placed a bunch of functionality into the Android menu. Click your phone’s Menu button, and you’ll be able to browse notes, set location awareness, view Saved Searches, and more.
Where you at?
Evernote for Android captures your location whenever you create a note. It then lets you find that note by proximity to your current location. To activate this feature, go to the Settings menu and make sure that the location settings are enabled. Once a connection is made, the “Notes Near Location” option will appear in the main Evernote menu.
And much more…
This is only the beginning. We have big plans for Android in 2010, so stay tuned.
We also want to give a special thanks to all of the people that helped us iron out the kinks during the beta period. You rock!
Speaking of which, if you were a Beta tester, then you need to uninstall Evernote and reinstall it from the Market.
