Evernote today updated its iOS app to version 7.3.0, adding several new home screen customization options including three new color themes in light, dark, and classic green.

evernote
Users have also gained the option to rearrange and hide unnecessary sections on the home screen, add a sync status bar, and display recently viewed items in Notes, Notebooks, Shortcuts, and Tags.

Along with customization options, the app has been made both snappier and more responsive. Frequently used features in the note editor are easier to find and titling and retitling notes, for example, is now quicker.


Business card scanning has also been improved, with scanned cards able to be added directly to contacts, and several bug fixes and performance enhancements have been added. Earlier this week, Evernote improved its synchronization platform, allowing its iOS and desktop apps to sync four times faster.

Evernote can be downloaded from the App Store for free. [Direct Link]

It syncs with Penultimate, so I can have my handwritten notes right in Evernote
I can clip web pages and articles directly into a notebook
I can organize all my notes in notebooks and stacks
I can share notebooks with my wife or coworkers

And have all of it available in one place on any device, any OS, any where, any time

I keep everything I need in Evernote and it works insanely great for me
I can't tell you times someone has asked me about something and I was able to pull out my phone, pull it up on Evernote and either answer them or send it to them

Sure, there are other apps that do these things
But this one is the best for what I do all in one

If it doesn't work for you... no big deal... don't force it
But I wouldn't want to be without it

Evernote + Dropbox = happy Dawg

This update has made Evernote awesome again! Really didn't like the home screen layout.

I won't try justify it to anyone. If you don't need it don't use it!

Here Here. No need to justify.
I use Evernote a lot. I hand write notes on my ipad mini during meetings and save them in Evernote. They are even serchable - yet another and unmentioned feature that keeps me using Evernote - the notes are searchable.

....and on a side note, cool handle.. username I wish I had thought of that!!

It'd be nice if they had UI coloring consistency. I have my home screen the dark theme, I click on a notebook and its got the green top so the "classic", then I click on a note and it's to the "light" theme. Seriously.. whatever theme I choose, make it throughout the whole program. I'm just a freak'n hardware engineer and even I notice this crap.

Thanks for the answer, but I can also do all that already (minus the all-under-one-roof aspect) with the stock apps in Mavericks and iCloud (for when I'm on a Windows machine).

FYI: I'm not trying to be difficult, I'm interested, but I don't see how this does anything better than what Apple already offers. Except, again, the all-in-one app approach. It's such a popular app I feel like I must be missing the obvious on this one.

+1 somehow I don't see this as WOW factor.
