We’re big fans of our partners. They’re helping to bring the Evernote lifestyle to more people, in more ways than we could ever imagine. Every so often, a partner comes along that does something completely new and unexpected. That type of innovative thinking is usually associated with startups and single developers, which is why it’s so cool when a company like HTC comes along and wows us with their Evernote integration.
What HTC created
For all of their Android devices, HTC developed Sense, an interface for Android to optimize the user experience on HTC devices. HTC saw an opportunity to provide an innovative note taking experience on their tablet devices, so they built Evernote right into it.
Notes on the HTC Flyer and HTC Jetstream
The 7″ HTC Flyer and the new 10″ HTC Jetstream are designed for both manual and digital pen input. HTC created a notes app which looks like a spiral bound notebook and ties directly into Evernote. Tap on the page and tap out your thoughts. Grab your digital pen and sketch something. Take a photo with the tablet camera and annotate it. Record audio and attach it to a note. When you’re done, everything is sent right into your Evernote account. You can even link notes to calendar events!
Time stamped audio
The HTC notes app allows you to record audio as you take notes (typed or handwritten). The app automatically connects your content to the audio recording, allowing you to easily jump to the moments in the audio associated with the notes you took.
What makes HTC tablets so powerful is the way that they integrate the notes app with so many aspects of the interface. Say you’re browsing the web and want save something you like. Take your digital pen and draw a circle around an object, then save it into the Notes app. You can do the same thing on any screen of the devices.
The complete Evernote experience
The Notes app is a complete Evernote client, meaning that you can create, browse and search through your entire Evernote account. You can create new notebooks, move notes between notebooks and more.
All of this got ZDNet to call the HTC Flyer, “the magic Evernote tablet.” We couldn’t agree more.
The Evernote API
HTC was able to do all this thanks to the open, free Evernote API. You can also create amazing Evernote-integrated apps and products. Take a look at our developer site for more information.
