Release Notes:
Welcome to the new Evernote for iOS! We’ve rebuilt the app from the ground up to make it easier for you to create notes quickly, customize them however you like, find them in an instant, and take them wherever you go. Editor - You now have more control over your notes’ appearance. Use semantic headers and tables to give structure to your notes. Or change fonts, colors, and highlights to add a personal touch. - Checklists now get the VIP treatment they deserve. You can add list items, indent them, move them around—and enjoy the satisfaction of crossing them off with a single tap. - Adding rich content (like audio, photos, attachments, and sketches) is quicker and easier with the new, multi-function Insert button. - We redesigned the formatting toolbar to put your most-used options front and center. Bold/italic/underline, header level, font sizes and colors, multiple highlighter options, subscript/superscript, alignment, hyperlinking, and more—all right there at your fingertips. Search - Save time—and taps. Get real-time search suggestions as you type to find what you're looking for faster. - Filter your searches by tag, attachment, PDF, URL, and more. So even the most elusive notes will now appear at your command. - Is searching your Evernote superpower? Like to combine keywords, tags, or locations to find exactly what you need? Now you can save those searches and use them over and over again with just one tap. UI - The main screen has a cleaner, more modern look, so it’s easier on the eyes—and easier for you to get stuff done. - We redesigned the document scanner to streamline how you capture information with your camera. In a flash, the app now automatically recognizes documents, Post-it(R) notes, whiteboards, or business cards, scans them for readable text, suggests the best options for capturing them, and adds them to your notes. Ta da! - We’ve introduced nested tags to give you even more ways to organize and find information. Foundation - This update moves the app to a new codebase that’s more stable and reliable, for fewer hang/crash errors. - That new codebase means we can fix bugs quicker and release new features more often (yep, we’ve got some cool things already in development—join our Beta Program for a sneak peek!). - Syncing data across different platforms and devices is smoother and more seamless than before. This is a big update that we’re really proud of—and it’s just the start. We’re going to keep working hard, releasing updates, and finding new ways to simplify your life.
