Evernote for iOS devices is getting a nice new look in an upcoming update. The company previewed the major overhaul on its official blog.
Evernote 5 will work on all iOS devices, including the recently introduced iPad mini:
We’ve learned a lot over the years about how people use Evernote on mobile devices. It’s all about speed. Whether you’re creating a note or browsing to one, everything needs to happen fast. Also, you want the app to easily support your preferred organization scheme. If you’re a tagger, then tags must be front-and-center. If you put everything into notebooks, then those need to be quickly accessible.
In that same spirit, Evernote 5 will make all information available to users with just a few taps.

One major new feature will include views for notebooks, tags, and pages. Users can also use a quick note button to easily create a new note. On the iPad edition, users can take advantage of a recent notes list to make multitasking that much easier.
The blog post said that the update is coming “very soon.”
Evernote is a universal app for the iPhone/iPod touch and iPad. It can be downloaded free in the App Store now.
I heavily relied on Evernote for a while, but drifted away from the service. The update does look very nice, and I’ll be interested in trying it out.
