Evernote for Android is our fastest-growing app. For some, it’s an on-the-go companion to a desktop version of Evernote, while for many others, Android is their primary computing platform, and Evernote is their primary workspace. That’s what we’re building Evernote to be, and that’s what the new Evernote 6 redesign is all about.

Fresh new design
Evernote 6 is here with a new look and feel, and major improvements to note creation, editing, viewing, and search.
You’ll immediately notice the floating New Note button. The green plus sits at the lower corner of all note and notebook lists. Tap it and your note options spring out in one of the most enjoyable interactions we’ve ever built.
The benefit is fast access. Creating the note you want is always a tap away. If you’re like us, you’ll find that the second benefit is spending a bit too much time tapping on that plus button with a huge grin on your face.
Swipe your finger from the left edge of the screen and a panel slides in displaying your notebooks, tags, and shortcuts. If you’re an Evernote Business user, you’ll be able to switch between business and personal notebooks. You can also tap on the stripes near the elephant to open the drawer.
Web clipping has arrived on Android! Find a webpage that you’d like to save and tap on the Share menu and choose Evernote as a destination. Tapping the big elephant button lets you choose a notebook or add tags. Depending on the size of the page, and your connection speed, clipping may take a bit of time. We’ll take care of it in the background so you can keep doing what you’re doing.
Fast notebook sharing
Evernote is great for working together with others. One of the easiest ways to do this is to set up a notebook around a project, then share it. Everyone with access to this notebook contributes whatever they’re tasked with. The new Evernote 6 makes notebook sharing faster and simpler than it’s ever been.
When you’re in a notebook, tap the person button at the top of the screen. Then add the people you want to invite, include a message describing what you’d like your team to do with this notebook, and finally select the permissions you want to grant to the people you invite. That’s it. Watch as their ideas start filtering in.
We’re constantly writing and collecting in our Evernote accounts. Sometimes we’re doing this for ourselves, other times it’s a team effort. In all cases, there comes a point when we turn to Evernote’s search features to help us find what we need. In Evernote 6, the redesigned search screens make finding notes a lot easier. If you’re getting too many results, refine your searches by notebook, tag, and location. You can also switch between personal and business notes to quickly filter out unwanted results.
Become an Evernote expert
Evernote is packed with features. We always try to balance an easy-to-understand interface with the ability to surface all the stuff Evernote can do. That means that there are undoubtedly useful capabilities that you might not be aware of. To address this, we’ve added an Explore Evernote section to the bottom of the Navigation Drawer. This section walks you through a bunch of features that we think you should know about. Check it out.
So much more
In addition to all of this…
- Cleaner note editor layout improves viewing and updating notes
- Redesigned tablet experience
- New camera makes switching between modes a snap
- Enhanced handwriting support with pinch to zoom and better recognition
There are dozens of other improvements and redesigns throughout the app that make this the most modern, most flexible, and most powerful Evernote for Android ever. Let us know what you think.
