This week, Evernote for Mac (3.2) gets Activity Stream, a feature that keeps you updated on all the goings-on in your account. We’ve also upgraded all graphical elements to make them look gorgeous on the new MacBook Retina displays. Plus, lots of other improvements. Let’s take a closer look.
Evernote is great for working with your friends and colleagues. To keep you in the loop on all the things that are happening in the notebooks you share and the ones that you have access to, we’ve added Activity Stream.
Click the new satellite dish icon in the toolbar to view your Activity Stream. You’ll see a bunch of useful information:
- Usernames or email addresses of new people that join your shared notebooks
- Updates relating to added, edited and deleted notes
- A record of individual notes that you share
If there’s a new notification, you’ll see a badge appear on the icon.
It’s important to keep in mind that the Activity View displays the most recent change that has occurred since the last time Evernote synched. This means that if you have a note which was updated 10 times since the last sync, only the most recent change will appear in the Activity View.
To make notebook sharing a seamless experience, we now automatically sync notebooks that you join to your Mac, eliminating the several clicks it used to take to see your friends’ notes.
Discover and learn
The Activity Stream popup also includes Evernote tips geared at all types of users. The tips will disappear once you’ve clicked on them. New items will periodically appear including information about newly added features.
Our design team has been hard at work upgrading every button, texture, shadow, and image inside of Evernote for Mac to look sharp and beautiful on the new drool-worthy MacBook Retina displays.
This update also includes a host of bug fixes and improvements, including more reliable sync, faster sharing and a number of stability enhancements.
