Today’s Evernote for iOS (4.1.7) update lets you share entire notebooks with anyone you like. It also includes a number of stability improvements and improves access to offline notebooks for Premium users. Here’s the update:
Sharing entire notebooks is great when you’re working with a group. Evernote for iOS already lets you share single notes, now you can do that with notebooks. Here’s how.
- iPhone: From the Notebooks screen, tap Edit, tap the notebook, choose Share this Notebook
- iPad: From the Notebooks screen, tap Edit, tap the notebook, tap the Share icon
From there, the Sharing Settings screen will appear, letting you choose to either make the notebook completely public or to share with specific individuals. To make sharing with individuals easier, choose emails from your Address Book by tapping the blue plus icon, or enter them manually.
In addition to sharing, Premium users can allow others to edit the content of their notebooks. Manage these settings in the Recipients May field.
If a notebook is public, you can post a link to the notebook on Twitter and Facebook, from the Sharing Setting screen. You can also copy the URL and share the notebook via email or IM.
The Sharing Screen is also the place to go if you wish to add new people, remove people, modify access privileges, or stop sharing a notebook completely.
Premium feature: Easier access to Offline Notebooks
Premium users are able to take entire notebooks offline for access whenever and wherever they like. In this update, we’ve made it easier for iPhone users to browse to offline notebooks, which are now listed near the top of the notebooks list. Go there to view your Offline Notebooks or tap on the gear icon to add new ones, remove old ones, or take everything offline.
We’ve made a number of under-the-hood improvements, as well, including making the application significantly more responsive during the note editing process. We have lots more in store. Stay tuned.
