Evernote yesterday updated its iOS app to version 5.2, adding a new Snippet View for iPad, a new PDF viewer, new formatting options and more.
The company detailed the update on its blog, noting that Snippet view allows users to quickly scan their notes. The update also allows Evernote Business users to use Business Notebooks as offline notebooks. The Evernote Trunk, which is an app store for Evernote apps, is available within the app as well.
Some users are experiencing crashes after upgrading, but Evernote says that it's aware of the problem and that a fix is in testing and will be available as soon as possible.

Evernote 5.2 now also uses the PSPDFKit iOS SDK (http://pspdfkit.com) for their PDF viewer, so we should see support for annotations (highlights, ink drawings, etc) in the near future. All they need to do is to enable a property.
