Planned exclusively for the Mac and iOS, Evernote 5 is now out of beta and immediately available as a stable download through Apple’s iTunes App Store, delivering a new homescreen, the ability to create new notes faster, some Premium features, and much more.
Promised for a while now, Evernote 5 is available on schedule for iOS with new home screen features for quick access to notes, notebooks, tags, places, as well as Premium features.
You can now create new notes with fewer taps thanks to the home screen’s quick note buttons, and the note list has been redesigned with new card style graphics to make note content more visible.
There’s also the added ability to quickly create new notebooks from the Notebooks list, and the Places tab now displays notes on a map that can be enlarged.
A unified shared notebook list now shows your notebooks, as well as the ones shared with you by your friends and loved ones. Premium features can be found in the Evernote Premium section.
Although Evernote 5 was initially planned for the Mac, the development team seems to have been so quick on the iOS front that they managed to roll out the iPhone & iPad version earlier.
Speaking of Apple’s tablet computer, Evernote 5 has some iPad-exclusive features up its sleeve, including notebook stack support in Notebooks view, and list of recently viewed, edited and created notes.
“Stay organized, save your ideas and improve productivity,” say the developers. “Evernote lets you take notes, capture photos, create to-do lists, record voice reminders--and makes these notes completely searchable, whether you are at home, at work, or on the go.”
Evernote 5 is compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad and requires iOS 5.0 or later. The app is optimized for iPhone 5.
As usual, numerous bug fixes and stability improvements have been incorporated.
