Evernote 3.1

Send Article to a Friend

Evernote has updated its eponymous note-taking and snippet-keeping software to version 3.1 with a number of user interface changes, new features, and fixes. At the top of the list, Evernote replaces its thumbnail view with a notecard view, which was previously seen only in Evernote’s full-screen mode on the Mac. (The notecard view will also be familiar to users of the Evernote iPad app.) You’ll still see small thumbnails of images on the cards, but if you’ve added notes to any image, you’ll see the opening lines of text accompanying the thumbnail. Evernote 3.1 also adds a Save Attachment feature that enables you to export all files placed within a note (or multiple notes) to a folder on your Desktop, header printing capabilities (title, dates, tags, and notebook), and date and time stamps that can be placed within the body of a note. Fixes include improved highlighting accuracy in search results within PDFs and preventing notes placed in Evernote’s Trash from appearing in Spotlight search results. (Free from the Mac App Store, 21.5 MB)

In addition to the Mac app, Evernote has updated its iOS app to version 4.2.0 with a redesigned note editor for iPhone users. The release now places attachment options at the top of the note editor, moves text styling options to a new tab, and adds tagging capabilities to the updated note info screen. See the Evernote blog for more details on new features and improvements.
