Evernote for iOS gets huge overhaul, leaves other versions in the dust

Evernote is a company that continually iterates its products, overhauling designs and improving functionality, across all of its platforms. They offer native apps for almost every platform, and have paid special attention to iOS in recent months.

The new Evernote for iOS is a universal app and brings an easier navigation system to both devices, along with quick access to search, places, tags and specific notebooks. It also puts Premium Features front and centre, Evernote’s $44.99/year subscription service that adds unlimited uploads, increased storage and offline notebooks. This version also improves Page Camera, the ability to snap a piece of paper, receipt or document and have it automatically scaled, cropped and correctly oriented.

This version also adds a Quick Note feature, which bypasses all the settings and questions and lets you just input text or a photo and immediately save it. iPad users can also see a list of recent notes in visual carousel form.

If you’re a frequent Evernote user, head to the App Store and download Evernote 5.0 for iOS.

    Why do I have a feeling that this reads like a paid advertisement? Is this really a news?

    How much did MobileSyrup get bribed to talk about it nicely like that?

    • Brad F(anboy)

      @Mike It’s more likely that MobileSyrup’s staff are heavy users of Evernote and they’re just fans of it.

      This is news for anyone who uses Evernote, which is a lot of people.

    I say, they better release a similar Android overhaul, if they don’t want to be under the dust!

    Android had a LONG time of having a much, much better Evernote app than iOS. I tried using the app on my wife’s iPad, and it is horrendous. This looks like it probably simply catches up to the awesomeness of the Android application. Looking forward to trying it out tonight.

      Correction – it *was* horrendous. No idea how the new one is.

    • Hardened

      Wow really – horrendous on iOS? Exactly what was wrong with the experience on your wife’s ipad on the previous version vs what was so great feature wise on Android?

      I use both platforms: mainly iOS as my daily use device with Galaxy Nexus JB 4.0.1 at home.
