Evernote has just updated its official iOS app to version 7.2 with several notable new features. Undoubtedly the most notable among them is the business card scanning feature. With Evernote 7.2, you can now use the app's camera to scan business cards and automatically digitize them intro editable content notes. For better results, connect to LinkedIn and your address book. You can also set Evernote to automatically email your own information to your new contacts. Check out Evernote's business card feature in action in the video below: If you can't see the video embedded above, please click here. Business card scanning is available through Evernote Premium. But free users may preview the feature by scanning up to five business cards. Evernote 7.2 also introduces another Premium feature in the form of presentation mode, which allows for presenting notes on a larger screen via AirPlay or a cable. Presentation mode is available to non-Premium users via a 14-day complimentary preview. The new version of Evernote also has something new for Evernote Business users. If you are one, you can now choose whether Quick Notes create Personal notes or Business notes by default. In addition, Evernote 7.2 features a sync button at the top of the home screen, a new Duplicate option for creating a copy of a note, and the ability to earn Premium and other rewards by referring friends to Evernote. Evernote 7.2 is available now in the App Store for free. It's compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad running iOS 7.0 or later. Evernote 7.0 was released last September, introducing a new iOS 7-optimized interface, and Evernote 7.1 was issued a month later, adding a new Places feature and other enhancements. In between those two major update, Evernote received an update that added support for the Post-It Note Camera and the Evernote Market.
