Better attachments

Evernote for BlackBerry lets you create text notes, snapshot notes, audio notes, and notes with file attachments. In this update, we’ve made it easier to add new attachments to an existing note and remove any that you don’t want.

To do this, open the note and tap on the paperclip icon the top right. This will take you to the attachment screen, where you can add new snapshots, files and more.

Optimized snapshots

After you take a photo, the app now asks whether you’d like to save and sync the photo at its native size or to scale it down. Scaling helps with both note loading and synchronization. Consider using this option if you are on a slower network connection.

Tons of improvements

In addition to adding new features and functionality, we also made a number of great usability improvements:

  • Much faster: You’ll see much quicker loading across all aspects of the app thanks to better network connection management
  • Better power management: The app is easier on your battery, requiring significantly less power than in the past
  • Better legibility: We’ve improved the interface to be clearer and more legible

This is all on top of numerous bug fixes and stability improvements, which make for a great Evernote for BlackBerry experience. We have lots more to come. Let us know what you think.

    Hey! The old OTA download link now longer works! Since BB App World doesn’t work in a lot of countries do you have an alternate??

    Hey there! Great to see the new changes. Unfortunately, App World doesn’t work in a lot of countries. Can you give a direct download link as the old ones and are not working.

    Auto-download all notes

    Icon is blurry, needs to be sharpened

    Good updates, but why not the essential updates? Evernote is fantastic on iPad and Mac, btw

    Is this update only available to certain models? Evernote 3.2 was working fine, but appword isn’t showing this updated version for my phone.

  • Ashley

    How about shared notebooks? When will it be available?
    Desperately looking forward to that.

    Every BlackBerry Evernote update I’ve tried has been more solid than the last. As a paid and committed Evernote user I appreciate the new features and support for my chosen platform, keep up the good work!

    Hi There, I am absolutely loving Evernote on my PC but can’t say that for Blackberry. I have upgraded to the latest version and file upload is faster. I wish you could offer a feature to turn off the syn feature. The way I work is before I leave the office, I would syn Evernote while on Wi-Fi, then go out to client meetings and what to add some quick notes, but instead, you have to sign in, then wait for the sync to complete every time. Just on Saturday I have been saving clips of various mountains I was looking at for my daughter on Kiji. As we were driving to go so the bike, my wife wanted to see the picture, so I gave her my BB and told her to open up evernote. It took almost the drive to get to the person to open evernot, sync, then open the file. Add the feature to turn that off sync and things would run great. !

    Wonderful update but:
    1) italian translation is plain awful. on pc and ipad i can reset to english (which i would however prefer). Please allow language change in bb too
    2) Selecting snapshot from main toolbar in BB Bold activate the camera but the capture never goes back to evernote app

    hello there and thanks for your info ? I have definitely picked up something new from proper here. I did alternatively experience several technical points the use of this web site, as I experienced to reload the website lots of instances previous to I may get it to load correctly. I were considering in case your web hosting is OK? Not that I am complaining, however sluggish loading instances times will often impact your placement in google and could damage your quality ranking if ads and marketing with Adwords. Anyway I am adding this RSS to my email and could look out for a lot more of your respective fascinating content. Make sure you replace this again soon..

    I like the app a lot but am new to using iPad – I cannot find the attachments screen or the paperclip at top right.

    I have version 4.2.1 loaded for iPad – the above example is for a Blackberry – are there version differences?
    Can you help – what am I doing wrong? I want to resize a photo but I am stuck
