Evernote for Palm Pre (and Pixi) gets a great update today. The latest version (1.0) adds a number of features and improves on existing functionality. You can now create snapshot notes from within the application, check off to-do items, download PDFs and other attached files, and more. As always, Evernote is available for free through the Palm App Catalog.
Native snapshot notes (with location)
You can now create snapshot notes without leaving the Evernote app. Just tap on the Snapshot Note option in the new note screen. After you’ve taken your photo, you will be given the option to add text, tags, and assign the note to a specific notebook. As a bonus, snapshots taken within Evernote will capture your GPS location, allowing you to plot them on a map later.
Snapshot notes are great for taking photos of everything from business cards to wine labels. Once the image arrives in Evernote, we run it through our recognition servers, making any printed or handwritten text searchable. Give it a shot.
Load files and PDFs
Evernote for Palm Pre lets you download and view files that are attached to your notes. Simply tap on the file to download it. Once downloaded, it will launch in whatever native viewer you have for that file type. You can attach new files from either the desktop or web versions of Evernote.
A note on file attachments: Free users can attach images, audio, and PDFs to their notes. Evernote Premium subscribers can attach and sync any type of file. Learn more about Evernote Premium »
Checkbox and to-dos
You’ve created an itinerary or shopping list using Evernote on your desktop. Evernote for Palm Pre now lets you check off the items in your list as you go. Nice and simple.
Edit pending notes
Once you finish making a note, the note is placed into a Pending queue while it waits to be uploaded to the Evernote Service. In this latest update, Evernote for Palm Pre lets you make changes to notes in your Pending queue.
Evernote for Palm Pre is now available in French, Italian and German.
And lots more…
There are lots of other under-the-hood improvements, including native support for the camera roll, better handling of accounts with large numbers of tags, and more. Go on and explore.
