Better Notebook Picker
For many users, notebooks are at the center of their Evernote lives. In this update, we made switching between frequently-used notebooks easier by placing your most recent notebooks at the top of the list. In addition, you’ll be able to toggle between showing and hiding Business notebooks.
PDF Annotation with Markup Summary
We’ve incorporated a number of powerful annotation features from our Skitch app directly into Evernote. One of these allows Premium users to add shapes and text to PDFs attached to notes. There’s no better way to call out important elements inside reports, research and product manuals.
In addition to marking up the PDF, you can also have Evernote include a PDF Summary. This is a page that Evernote adds to the front of the PDF, which shows a visual summary of the types of annotations contained within the document, along with snippets of the annotated areas. This way, you can quickly see and jump to exactly those areas that you had called out. It’s also useful when sharing the PDF with others. Your recipient can use the summary to go directly to what’s important.
Page Camera Improvements
Page Camera lets you beautifully digitize a physical page by snapping a photo. Once you capture the image, Evernote works its magic to clean up the photo, improve contrast and make the text searchable.
We designed it to work best with the Evernote Notebook by Moleskine, but you can use it to capture your written words on any notebook or surface. With this update, we improved every aspect of the feature to make it faster and more accurate.
Premium Feature: Customize Your Homescreen
Premium users can now choose to hide some of the lower items on the homescreen. To do this, tap on the three vertical dots and choose what you want to remove.
In addition to these new features, we also made the app more stable and responsive. There’s always more on the way.
