Evernote, the popular note-taking application, has just gotten a batch of improvements for those already using a device with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. For such users, Evernote has enhanced notifications by showing thumbnails and snippets of text. Moreover, it now allows users to edit notes on the notification itself as well as share it. It also lets users get more organized by grouping notifications that are similar with each other.
Apart from these, Evernote includes some improvements in performance. Among these are a speedier scrolling rate on one’s notebook, lesser image loading time, and several tweaks to the Evernote User Interface. Of course, there are bug fixes included in the update, as well. The bottom line is, those who use the Evernote app may want to download the update even if they are not using Android 4.1 Jelly Bean.
Meanwhile, for those who have not experienced using the app yet, Evernote, by Evernote Corp., essentially lets users take notes in a digital notebook and sync these notes across the various devices that they use. One can use Evernote on a desktop computer, notebook, a tablet, and a smartphone whether one is using Mac, Windows, Android, Blackberry, Palm WebOS, Windows Mobile, among others. Like many apps today, Evernote for Android facilitates sharing from the app to a user’s Facebook or Twitter account, as well.
There are various ways that one can use Evernote. Among those that Evernote suggests are keeping track of expenses, taking note of inspiration, researching, and jotting down grocery lists, taking notes in class or in meetings, making to-do lists, saving product names and their prices, capturing images of menus, business cards, whiteboards, and the like. Those who wish for a more specialized approach to note-taking may also opt to download the other products that Evernote offers such as Skitch, Evernote Food, and Evernote Hello.
