Evernote, the popular cross-platform note-taking service for desktops and mobiles has been finally bumped up to version 2.0 for Android-based devices.
The update, which has been long due since the Android app launched earlier this year, has been filled to the brim with new features, not least of which is a cleaner, easier to navigate user interface and an overall performance overhaul.
The home screen has been reorganised with quick access to six areas of the app: New note, snapshot, All Notes, Tags, Notebooks and Search. It also displays the sync status when the app is synchronising data with the Evernote server. Elsewhere, a search option has been added at the top of every screen, plus a tab at the bottom to navigate around notes.
Editing notes is now a breeze. All you have to do is tap on a note, which gives you options to edit, tag, sync and create shortcut for the note onto your Android home screen. You can also add an Evernote widget to the home screen, which enables you to quickly take a note, snapshot or recording, or search for your existing notes.
Last but certainly not least is the new ‘Notebooks’ section, which is essentially way to group your notes by notebook (like category), location and month, which you can scroll between easily.
Evernote is free to use, though there is a premium option, which gives offline access to your notebooks.
The app is free to download right now from the Android Market.
