Updates to the Evernote SDK for iOS
In the last few months, we have completely overhauled the Evernote SDK for iOS.
Here’s a quick recap of recent updates:
- Added local API support (talk to the Evernote for iOS app directly)
- ENML to HTML converter to view notes within your app
- Support for Evernote Business and wrappers that make it easier to work with the Business API
- Support for the China service is built-in
- New API’s : Reminders, Preferences
- New Mac SDK
- Better Evernote Trunk support in the Evernote for iOS app : Install Trunk iOS apps from within the Evernote for iOS app
- Added ARC support to the Thrift generated code
- More sample code
We have more iOS features coming to the SDK to help with syncing notes and integration with more Evernote apps. Evernote is committed to continue to support the Apple community with platform tools that help build great apps. If you are building an app on the Evernote platform, make sure you submit to the Evernote Devcup.
iOS Apps in the Evernote Devcup
iOS has been a very popular platform for the Evernote Devcup. With all the new features and additions to the iOS SDK, we are hoping to see a new class of iOS apps this year. If you need ideas for Evernote projects, check our discussion forums where users have posted some good concepts for apps.
Here are some examples of iOS apps built by developers for last year’s Devcup:
- Bubble Browser
- Beesy – Take meeting notes with automated To-Do list and Task / Project management
- Awesome Note
To see more apps, you can go to the Evernote Trunk, which showcases great Evernote integrations. Evernote users can explore the Trunk as a way to discover new apps that work with Evernote.
