Over on their blog, Evernote has practically admitted to not putting as much effort into the Android arm of their phone apps. The good news is that’s changing.
Evernote must have seen the rising demand of Android phones because they’ve doubled the size of their Android development team. Not only that, but in their first update in a long while, they’ve added these features that are Android-only:
The Evernote widget is a great springboard into the app itself, giving you quick access to pictures, notes, and audio notes. The widget also gives you a quick search bar for all of your Evernote data.
Similarly to how you can send a particular item as a text message or an email, Evernote is giving you the option of sending it directly to your Evernote account. This is going to be great for quickly cataloging websites, pictures, etc. that you may come across in your online browsing. I see this really coming in handy around the holidays when you’re looking for the perfect gift online.
Beyond these Android specific additions, Evernote has also added pinch to zoom support, as well as several bug fixes and general updates. It’s great to see developers such as Evernote finally capitalizing on what Google’s operating system has to offer.
