Every significant iOS update opens up new possibilities for Evernote. We’re excited to unveil three major new features that are made possible by iOS 8, plus a few other great additions.
Get Evernote for iPhone and iPad
Clipping from the web and apps
We’ve wanted to bring web clipping to iOS for a long time. It’s here, and it’s much more than just web clipping. Whenever you’re on a webpage that you’d like to save, tap the Share icon, then, choose Evernote as your destination. You can select a destination notebook for your clip and add a note. It’s that simple.
Web pages are only the beginning. The same feature works for photos, documents, PDFs, and numerous other parts of your iOS experience that you’d like to save for easy access. In iOS 8, you’re able to rearrange items in your share menu, so if you use Evernote a lot, make it the first item in the list. To move Evernote to the front, long press on the share menu, and drag Evernote to the first position.
Evernote in the Notification Center
Swiping down from the very top of any screen, including the lock screen, brings up the Notification Center. You can now add Evernote’s quick note bar to the Notification Center so that starting a note is just a swipe and tap away. Add Evernote by tapping Edit at the bottom of the Today section in the Notification Center.
Premium feature: Touch ID lock
In addition to our Premium passcode lock feature, you can now unlock Evernote with your fingerprint on devices that support Touch ID. This is a faster way to get into Evernote if you use the passcode feature.
Premium feature: Related Notes
As you type or view a note, Evernote searches through your account to find other notes in your account that might be related to the work you’re doing. These notes appear below the note in the Related Notes section. It’s a great way to rediscover useful content that provides context for work projects or scheduled meetings.
Evernote Business: Automatic notebook sync
When your team is using Evernote Business, changes and additions are constantly happening. We don’t want you to look at outdated information, so Evernote now keeps business notebooks updated in the background if you have push notifications enabled.
New and exciting
Let us know what you think of these new features. We have a lot more on the way to support the new platform and the new phones. Stay tuned.
