When users provide feedback about what they want, the creators of Evernote listen. One big request was the implementation of rich text support. Now, you can add stylized text such as bold, italic and underline along with highlighting, adding URLs and creating header texts. Shared notebooks is another new feature, and it allows you to view notebooks other Evernote users have shared with you. You cannot edit these notes yet, but that may come in a later update.
