Earlier today, Apple released iOS 4.2. Once you update your devices, you’ll notice some nice new capabilities in Evernote. The Evernote iOS 4.2 features were baked into our last update, so they’ll just start working.
Here’s a reminder of Evernote’s iOS 4.2 features:
Easily send files into Evernote from other apps
iOS 4.2 allows apps to register themselves as destinations for certain file types. Evernote is now registered for PDF, TXT, WAV, MP3, HTML, and several others. This means that you’ll be able to send files into Evernote directly from other applications.
In Safari and Mail
Certain file types (PDF, TXT) now have an Open in button at the top right corner when they’re viewed. Tapping on the button will show Evernote as an option. Opening the file in Evernote will create a new note in Evernote with that file as an attachment. To send an audio file into Evernote, tap and hold on the file.
Third party apps
Developers can now enable the same functionality in their applications. There are already many applications that can send files into Evernote. Look for many more to add the Open in feature, which will allow you send files into Evernote from anywhere.
Printing from Evernote
Making a hardcopy of a note no longer requires your desktop. When you see a note that you like, tap on the Send to button in the note and choose Print. In order for this feature to work, you need to have the latest version of OS X with AirPrint configured, and there needs to be a printer on the network that supports Apple’s AirPrint.
Multitasking on iPad
One of the big new features of iOS 4.2 is support for multitasking on the iPad. Evernote fully supports this capability, so you’ll be able to jump in and out of Evernote without losing your place.
