Following on from Evernote’s acquisition of the popular app Penultimate, the Evernote app itself has just received a big update. Available now on the iOS and Mac App Store, Evernote version 4.2 has been unleashed bringing with it a large number of improvements and fixes for the app on iOS devices. The note editor has received a major redesign on the iPhone and iPod touch on iOS 5 and now has easier access to attachments, a redesigned note info screen and more powerful note editing capabilities. In addition to this, there is also improved checkbox functionality, an improved attachment system, including support for Photo Stream, together with the improved Note Editor settings.
Evernote for Mac has also received a major update, bringing it up to version 3.1 which offers a brand new Card View to replace the old thumbnail view. This reflects the user interface for Evernote on the iPad and full screen on the Mac. The app also includes more minor improvements like word and character counts, a Save All Attachments option, better Print functionality and other bug fixes.
One thing that hasn’t been included in the update is handwriting capabilities, particularly given the recent acquisition of Penultimate. Being honest, however, it’s a bit soon for that sort of functionality to hit Evernote. Look out for it in the future however.
