Today, Evernote for Windows Phone (2.5) gets an update full of redesigns and improvements. There’s a new look for the note list, helpful tips throughout, and a more spacious layout for the Note Editor. Let’s take a look.

Note List Tiles

The Note List now has a tiled look that feels right at home on your Windows Phone. Each tile contains the note title, date and text from the note. In cases where the note contains an image, a preview of the image will take up the lower two-thirds of the tile. The tile also shows an icon indicating an audio or file attachment. This redesign makes it easy to scan your note list and quickly find exactly what you’re looking for.

Helpful Popups

Even our most active users sometimes discover features that they didn’t know existed. To make sure that you get the most out of Evernote, we’ve added helpful popup messages that point out different functions at just the right times.

More Spacious Note Editor

We simplified the Note Editor interface to give you much more room to view and edit the content of your notes.

Lots More

In addition to these useful updates, we also improved the sign-in pages and added significant performance improvements that make the app more responsive than ever. We hope you like this update. Let us know what you think.

    Congratulation, finally Evernote become an interesting app for this platform. Still a lot limited than tha iOS one.
    Anyway I hope the team push forward this app in the next year.

    Thank you! Can’t wait to use it more.

    Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. You get an Internet cookie.

    When will Evernote show up under “Apps” in the inbuilt photo app. I use it to keep a photo journal of travel so my daughter can see where I am.

    Yes, you could pin a photo note tile to the start screen but, with the dedicated camera button on WinPhones, it is so much easier to shoot now and edit and save later.

    Like the changes launched today, btw. 🙂

    It’s an awesome update, however, I think Evernote needs to speed up on its upgrades for Windows Phone and Windows 8. I know OneNote and Evernote are different, but right now, I think OneNote is winning hands down

    Thanks so much for the wonderful update! It’s so nice to that you guys have embraced the Windows Phone platform. If only some other great app developers would join you!

    this actually looks good! im hoping we will see more great updates like this now that windows phone is going to be taking off with windows phone 8 and windows 8.

    i cant update for some reason though. it says version 2.5 in the app store but theres no button to update to it… 🙁

      never mind. i clicked on the share button on the market page and emailed it to myself and when i went back to the market page the update button appeared! weird!

      thumbs up to the new layout 🙂

    Extremely helpful information particularly the last part I care for such info much. I was looking for this particular info for a very long time. Thank you and best of luck.

    Hi, thanks so much for the wonderful update. But it’s slowly that loading the note and it fail to load always.

  • Magneto

    I really hope you guys improve user experience for us Windows Phone users. Currently the speed at which Evernote loads for WP is terrible. Everything is slow slow and it takes a lot of time to open notes even if they are made offline. I ended up switching to an android phone just to avoid this experience. 🙁

    Still cannot view notebooks that have been shared by others. Still useless.

  • Bu

    And I think it’s safe to assume it will stay that way! Evernote has done nothing to even trick us into thinking the app will start to perform at least as good as some of the WP’s average-lagging apps. We’d better look around for an alternative, if you’re not naive, to put it nicely.

    I trust this is a more easily understood app than others I have tried to use. I am not the most technological person in the world and would like to be able to follow through and understand exactly what I am doing.
