Today, we’re excited to release a great update to Evernote for Windows Phone 7. This update (2.2) includes a number of much-requested features, including native notebook sharing and better editing. That’s in addition to improved usability and reliability. Let’s have a look.
Evernote for Windows Phone 7 now lets you share your notebooks with individuals or the world. There are two ways to enter Notebook Sharing mode:
- Tap and hold a notebook in the list, then select Share Settings
- Tap on notebook, select more in the action bar, then choose Share Settings
Once in the Notebook Sharing mode, you can swipe right to chose the preferred type of sharing. The People panel lets you share with individuals via email. If you’re an Evernote Premium subscriber, then you can allow recipients to add and edit content in your notebooks. The Public panel creates a URL to the notebook, which you can paste into an email or share it via the social apps of your choice.
Contextual Search and Note Creation
When you find yourself inside of a notebook or tag, searches that you perform will remain within that notebook or tag. The same goes for new notes that you create. If you aren’t viewing a specific notebook or tag, then searches will be global and new notes will be placed into the default notebook.
Better Note Editing
Editing your notes is much more intuitive in this update. The editor for notes you create on your phone now displays all the text and lets you edit it directly. Any images or audio attachments are presented in the gallery above the note area.
In addition, we also made significant stability improvements to the app. The app is faster and more reliable, plus you’ll never see that pesky “we need to check your notes message”. There’s lots more to come. Enjoy and let us know what you think.
