Evernote 2.0 arrives on Android phones

Evernote allows you to take notes, pictures, record sounds and access your Evernote data from within their app. It automatically syncs with your Evernote account which allows you to access data on the web or through mobile. Evernote took huge strides forward and this is the biggest release they’ve ever done (over any platform). Here are some of the highlights:

New Home screen and new views: They’ve made some significant UI changes to the home screen, making it easier to find your way around the app.

New Search interface: Search on steroids. Search from any page and on the search screen, check out what you’ve searched for and create and save searches and filter by tags and notebook.


Easier sorting and browsing: It’s easy to group your notes by notebook, location or date and scroll between sections. Sorting can even be done offline. A simple tap and hold of any note bring up an array of options to Edit, Delete, Email, Map it and more.

Probably one of the more significant changes in this release is how much Evernote has sped up the application. As they mention on their blog, “Evernote 2.0 dramatically improves browsing, viewing and searching through notes. It does this by downloading all data about your notes, such as tags, notebook names, saved searches, note titles, and thumbnails when you first launch the app. Thanks to Android’s background processing capabilities, it can also sync periodically in the background to make sure you’re always up-to-date. In addition, whenever a note is viewed or created on the device, it will be stored offline for easy access even when there is no network connectivity. This feature is available for both free and premium users.”
