Popular note taking service Evernote has just updated its app to version 8.0, bringing a number of improvements designed to make it quicker and easier to interact with your information.
Speedy interaction with notes
Simplicity is the name of the game in Evernote 8.0.
Most importantly, the update brings faster ways for users to find their notes and the ability to add specific color and styles to notes. It’s now also much easier start a new note with just a single tap.
Evernote also discusses other changes in a blog post:
You’ll also notice that the app has a fresh, new look. Even your note list has been spruced up so you can scan through your notes more quickly. Devoted notebook fans will also love the way Evernote 8.0 makes it easy to dive in and out of notebooks to find notes. Simply tap the notebook selector above any note list to jump into another notebook.
Do you organize with tags or reminders? Evernote 8.0 comes with two new search features you’ll appreciate. A quick tap of the alarm clock located at the top of any note list brings up all the notes you’ve set up with reminders. To see only those notes associated with particular tags, tap the tag button located at the top of any note list and select the tags you want to filter for.
The Evernote app is designed for the both the iPhone/iPod touch and all iPad models and can be downloaded now for free.
In a quest to enroll more paying subscribers, Evernote made some drastic changes to its free service in 2016, limiting syncing to only two devices at one time.
There are two different paid services that offer unlimited syncing. Evernote Plus is $3.99 per month or $34.99 per year and offers 1GB of uploads per month and offline access to notebooks and notes.
Costing $7.99 per month or $69.99 annually, the Evernote Premium tier comes with up to 10GB of monthly uploads and other perks like the ability to annotate PDFs, search inside Office documents/attachments, and more.
