App Of The Month: Evernote’s Android App Is Darn Great

Evernote has been keeping us organized since 2008 and has become indispensible to anyone who needs to keep track of just about anything. There have been mobile apps for iOS and Android but they’ve been marginal or just ok.

But Evernote has released its Android app and given it a complete makeover. And unlike some makovers that are just re-released warm overs, this one is a dandy. It’s more visually appetizing and the once clunky app is on this side of nifty. Evernote’s developers have realized that simpler is better with one-tap icons for creating new notes, snapshots and the rest of your creations.

The new home screen has larger buttons for those of us with actual hands and it’s much easier to access your account and options so taking notes, adding or organizing your notebooks and keeping them findable with tags or places isn’t a pain.

Probably the coolest improvement is you can now get back to the homescreen by tapping the elephant or just by swiping left or right. You can also swipe through notes, tag or place views pretty darn fast as well.

They’ve added a new action bar at the bottom of the screen so you can control over whatever you’re working on. Let’s say you’re working in the notes and notebooks lists you now have sort options and notes views.

Evernote has another interesting feature that ties into the need to tell your friends and everyone else your location. Now in each note you make you can see your notes on a map.

Another small screen lovely is that now the navigation vanishes when scrolling in a note so you can see the entire screen which is a great improvement for longer notes.

This new Android app is a terrific improvement over the old one. Like all platforms items that you clip can be synched to their cloud service. The free ad-supported version allows 60MB of data per month, the premium version with 1GB monthly, no ads and speedier functioning for $5 monthly or $45 per year.
