The Evernote-fêted Evernote-integrated clipping and highlighting app Lightly has just received another major update. Released last July, Lightly got its first major update in September, with which it was redesigned for and made more compatible with iOS 7. Now, Lightly's second major update introduces a couple of new features. First off, there's geotag support, enabling you to save your location when saving and highlighting articles. Consequently, you can find articles by location in Evernote, which was updated with a new Places feature a couple of months ago. Also, as an offshoot of its location integration, Lightly can now run in the background for much longer. The other new feature introduced by Lightly's new major update is power saving. With power saving, Lightly is programmed to automatically quit itself when your device is in sleep mode. If you can't see the video embedded above, please click here. As always, Lightly lets you:
The new version of Lightly is available now in the App Store as a free update or as a new $2.99 download. The app is optimized for iPhone and iPod touch running iOS 6.0 or later. Lightly is developed by Ignition Soft, the same studio behind EverClip, which won in last year's Evernote DevCup. For its part, Lightly was one of the finalists in this year's Evernote DevCup. For more information on Lightly, check out our original review of the app here on AppAdvice, which concludes, "If you use Evernote for research, or use it for saving items to read later, then this app is perfect for the job."
