Evernote Touch for Windows 8 is our beautifully designed version optimized for Windows 8 touch devices. Today, we’re making Evernote Touch for Windows 8 more powerful by adding support for styled text along with other improvements. Let’s take a look.
A New Name
We changed the name of the app to Evernote Touch to make it clear that there are two different versions available to Windows 8 users: Evernote for Windows Desktop and the simpler, touch optimized Evernote Touch. If your Windows 8 device supports installing desktop applications, then we recommend installing both. This way, you’ll have a great touch experience and the full-featured Evernote Desktop available when you need it.
Evernote Touch for Windows 8 has a brand new editor bar that sits along the bottom of the screen if you use an external keyboard or just above the onscreen keyboard. You’ll see a number of great new options there.
- Spice up your text with fonts, colors and strikethrough
- Add some formatting with justification and indentation
- Create lists with numbers and bullets
- Turn text into a hyperlink
You can both create styled text and add style to existing text by tapping and highlighting it. The app also support keyboard shortcuts for these formatting and styling capabilities.
In the single note view, you’ll notice a cleaned up left column. We’ve removed the all the extra information that cluttered the column, leaving only the notebook name and any associated tags. Tap on More to view all of the metadata when you need it.
In addition to these changes, we also touched up the interface in a number of places and added a bunch of stability improvements to give you a great user experience. Let us know what you think.
