Today we have a bunch of great improvements to Evernote for Android (version 4.1), particularly for tablet users. There’s a completely redesigned tablet interface, an entirely new note view and lots of other enhancements. Plus, the app works beautifully on 7″ tablets, such as the Nexus 7 and the Kindle Fire. Let’s take a look.

The New Tablet Interface
In this update, we’ve made the tablet interface much easier to use:
The New Home Screen
When you launch the app, you’ll be greeted with a sleek new home screen. Tap to create a new note or jump directly into your notebook, tags and place views.
We’ve added a number of swipe interactions that dramatically improve navigation through the app. From the home screen, tap on Notebooks and a notebook panel slides in. You can also swipe the note list to make it full-screen, swipe it in the opposite direction to bring back the left panel.
Improved Note List Design
We redesigned the Note List to make it easier to browse and read than ever before. We changed the shape of the note thumbnails and improved the text contrast in the titles.
Whenever it can, Evernote saves the location associated with the notes you take. From the home screen, tap on Places to see your notes as pins on a map.
Tablet List View
You asked and we listened. Evernote for Android Tablets now has List View, a compact note list that shows you basic information about the note in a single list including title, tags, text snippets, attachments, and the date. The attachments icon also shows the number of attachments in the note. This view displays everything you need at a glance.
Updates for All Android Users
This update also includes a number of improvements for both mobile and tablet Android users.
You can now add additional levels to your bulleted and numbered lists. To do this, either create a list or tap into an existing one. You’ll notice indentation arrows appear in the formatting bar. Tap these arrows to indent the line further.
When viewing a note, tap on an image and you’ll be taken into slideshow view. In this update, we made the slideshow view faster and more reliable.
A Better Evernote
With each update, we strive to make it easier for you to save, find and relive all of your memories. We hope you like what you see. Let us know what you think.
