Reminders, our most requested feature of all time, is now available on Android! With Reminders you get three great features all rolled into one: alarms, note based to-dos and the ability to pin notes to the top of your note list. Let’s take a closer look.

Adding a Reminder is as simple as tapping on the alarm clock icon in a note. Once you’ve created a Reminder, you can optionally add a due date using our beautifully-designed date selector. By adding a due date, you will receive notifications both on your device and via email (if you like) to keep your work on track. You can disable the email digests from the Reminders section in Settings.
Pinning and To-Dos
All Reminders are pinned to the top of the note list, tag list and search results. If you want to move a Reminder up or down in the list, just long-press on it. When you’ve completed your task, check it off and get started on the next one.
Like everything we do, Reminders sync across several versions of Evernote, including Mac, iPhone, iPad, and Evernote Web.
Shared and Business Notebook Support
Reminders are not only great for staying on top of what’s important in your account, they also keep you updated on projects that you’re working on with others. Whenever you view a Shared Notebook or Business Notebook, you can choose to subscribe to that notebook’s Reminders. You’ll be notified about due dates for those notes just as you would for your own.
To quickly subscribe to multiple shared notebooks, you can tap on the more dots at the bottom of the notebook list.
For this update, we also made a number of other nice enhancements to the app:
- Improved copy and paste in note view
- Corrected photo order in multi-shot camera
- Improved shortcuts functionality
- Improved Japanese support
We’re really excited to bring this great new capability to Evernote. Try Reminders for project planning, travel, gift giving, and more. It’s dramatically expanded the way we use Evernote and we hope it does the same for you. Let us know what you think.
