We’re really excited about the response to Evernote 2.0 for Android. Your support is inspiring us to keep adding new features and improving it as fast as we can. Today’s update, version 2.5, is packed with a bunch of advanced features requested by our most avid users.
Get Evernote for Android from the Android Market
We’ve enhanced the already great browsing options by adding an advanced search capability. You can now construct complex searches using tags, notebooks, attributes, location and dates. Once these are created, they go straight into your search history so they’re easy to re-execute. To create an advanced search go to the Search screen from the application home screen, widget or header bar, then tap “Advanced Search” and select from a wide range of search criteria.
Users of the Mac, Windows and web versions know that Evernote provides a great way to manage your to-do lists by allowing you to add to-do check boxes to notes. With the latest version, you can also check and uncheck those items right from your Android device. Just view a note with to-do items and tap the check box. The change will be automatically synced with the server. This works with advanced search options, letting you find notes with incomplete to-dos.
Lots of other polish
- Notebook sync preferences: it’s now easier to manage your notebook sync preferences and see the size of your notebooks.
- Sync performance and robustness: Your phone will sync faster especially over a cell network. We’ve also made the sync process more robust, so you’re less likely to run into problems uploading or downloading notes.
- More views of more thing: We’ve added a simple text-only view of your note list, which scrolls and loads faster with many notes. We’ve also added a full screen mode for reading notes.
- Better sync info: We’ve improved the sync status bar so it’s easier to tell what synchronization is doing.
Stay tuned! We’ll have a bunch of great new features coming in the new year.
