Today, Evernote for iPhone and iPad gets a set of new features for both free and Premium users, as well as the triumphant return of Places, now beautifully laid out for iOS 7. Let’s take a look.

Places

We’re always looking for useful ways to help you recall and relive your memories. Location-based recall is amazingly sharp, which is why our Places feature is so useful. Tap into the Places option on the homescreen and you’ll see your notes laid on a zoomable map of the world. Of course, we can only do this for notes that have a location associated with them, which tend to be ones taken on your mobile device.

Tap on the pins to see all notes taken in those areas or scroll through the location list. You can also search the list if you want to find a specific location.

New Premium Feature: Customizable Homescreen

For our Premium users we’ve added the ability to let you customize your homescreen by either reordering the items, or removing those that you don’t use frequently. Do this by tapping on the Edit button at the very bottom of the homescreen. If you have a lot of items you might need to scroll to see it.

You’ll also be able to switch to a flat green background by going into Settings and sliding the Premium Background toggle.

And More

In addition to these enhancements, we also fixed numerous bug fixes, improved sync speed and made it easier to create and remove Saved Searches right from the search results. Let us know what you think.

    Is there a way to go back to the old iOS 6 if I don’t like the upgrade?

  • George T.

    Guys, please bring back a flatter version of the Evernote 5 for iOS. The new one is just a step back: unintuitive, slow and well… overly green!

  • itguy08

    Horrible update.

    Very hard to navigate various notebooks and the design has few visual cues as to what to do when.

    Is there any way to go back to the older, better version?

    Its good that certain features are available as freebies. Home screen customization is also quiet useful for the users with a different taste. Some might want the facebook icon, while some might like the appnext icon or some may look for any messenger. Good Endeavor.

    We must offer our sincere gratitude to the evernote team for their constant support in making the iphones more flexible and user friendly. Why should appnext or admob or revmob trail behind?

    I’m a premium subscriber, but I think the background switch should be free. I agree it is fair to charge to add features or remove marketing and advertising, but the patterned background serves no purpose and is just distracting and annoying.

    It’s great to see the iOS version getting better and better, but I’m still waiting for more consistency between the desktop and mobile experience:

    - Tags being organized in hierarchies on desktop and just sorting them by name/number on mobile! Pretty confusing if you use one system and can’t find your way through.

    - Or not being able to see tags associated to notes in a given notebook (like I can on the desktop version by clicking on the little tags icon)…

    These aren’t features that would be to expensive to be run on a mobile…
    So I’m looking forward to more thoughts being put in the way we organize our notes and have the experience as consistent as possible across the platfrom, following evernotes philosophy of a true cross-platform external brain (but not one that works different each time:)

    Cheers,

      Totally agree. Whilst I applaud companies making the most of the form factor of tablets like the iPad, not keeping key feature consistency is really frustrating. Its a shame that they seem to “spoil the ship for a ha’p\'orth of tar” when a relatively simple piece of coding would make the mobile version consistent with the really useful features on the desktop. Not doing so means that the great work is forgotten about as we focus on what is missing. Shame really.

    Per the iPhone update for iOS7 … holy green Hulk theme!! What is up with the redesign. However, styling issues aside … where did all of my Notes go??

    I was simply dumbfounded when I opened the new iOS7 version of Evernote and 99% of my Notes were missing. After doing some investigation, I believe this is simply a filtering by date (ie notes that haven’t been touched in like 90 days, don’t show up) … but seriously … that is NOT customer friendly Evernote team! You scared the bejesus out of me. And for what reason?

    How about a warning or better yet, give me the option on which notes I want to see! Unacceptable.

    If you aren’t sure what I’m talking about, take a look at these two screen shots showing a before and after of my Note count. The before shows the totals I saw on iOS7 the day before I did the update.

    After (on iOS7) –> http://bit.ly/19WATTo

    Anybody else having a similar heart-stopping experience?

    I was able to remove the iOS version 7 abomination and reinstall the old 5.4.3 version and it runs fine and syncs fine. I’M SO HAPPY TO HAVE THE OLD ONE BACK!

    Basically I found an old .ipa file of Evernote for iOS 5.4.3 in an Apple TimeMachine Backup, and after turning off all WiFi and 3G connectivity on my MacBook and iPhone, I replaced the current .ipa file on my MacBook with the old one from the TimeMachine backup, deleted the Evernote app from my phone, and did a manual sync using a cable. The old .ipa file synced over to the phone, and when I turned WiFi back on, the old version of iOS Evernote synced up with the server, and all my old notes were brought up to date. I performed numerous tests and never once had a problem, and that was several days ago. PLEASE NOTE I BACKED UP ABSOLUTELY EVERYTHING FIRST, AND MADE COPIES OF ALL RELEVANT FILES BEFORE TRYING THIS. I didn’t know what I was doing – I was trying ANYTHING out of desperation. And it worked FOR ME. Your experience may differ dramatically and I am NOT recommending you try it yourself – goodness knows what might happen. I’m just sharing that for ME, I was able to dump the new version and replace it with a fully-functional old version.

    While previous version of evernote showed a matching lists of previously used titles when I type my title, the newest version killed this feature. (The one which was added in version4.1.9)
    Am I the only one who cares about this?
