The ever reliable note jotting and reminder app for Android has been updated to its new version. Evernote for Android’s new update (3.5) includes a number of great improvements, including smart titles for notes, the ability to save as you edit, better layout and styling of image attachments, and more. We did try a brief hands-on with the app, so let’s see what’s improved.
Jotting it down neatly
There are times when you need to remember something on the go — a fast snapshot or a quick voice memo. Evernote does that pretty well. But there’s often a problem as to how to find those notes later? In this update, they’ve come up with a new solution: auto titles for untitled notes. Now, Evernote will create a title based on the content of the note and time that the note was created, making it easier to find it later.
Improved image layout in notes
They’ve also made some improvements to how snapshots appear inside the notes. There is now padding around images, so if a note contains several images, they show up nicely spaced and easier to view. As always, if you tap on an image, you can view it in full-screen view. A long tap lets users to annotate the photo in Skitch.
If you’re one of those who composes lengthy notes on your phone or tablet, then you’ll like the new Save feature. Tap the Save button in the note and a version will be saved to your device’s memory. You don’t need to exit the note. When you’re finished, tap Done and the note will Sync.
Besides this, the update also brings bug fixes and reliability improvements. Also, in this new version notes save much more quickly than in the previous versions. Evernote for Android can be downloaded from here.
We all need notes and reminders all the time. A quick jotting down of some tip, plan, idea on the phone does help in saving it for the future. We quite like the Evernote application, but there are dozens of applications out there in the Android market. Which one is your favourite? Let us know in the comments section below.
