Evernote 6 arrives with refined design and a plethora of enhancements

Evernote, one of the best note taking apps out there, is receiving a pretty decent update. The version 6 update comes with a slew of enhancements, as well as a Material Design-esque overhaul.

For some, it’s an on-the-go companion to a desktop version of Evernote, while for many others, Android is their primary computing platform, and Evernote is their primary workspace. That’s what we’re building Evernote to be, and that’s what the new Evernote 6 redesign is all about.

Part of the big design change is the floating New Note button. Tap it, and you’ll be presented with a big list of options on which note to create. It’s en_and_notelistsmooth and easily accessible, which is something we really like to see in note taking apps.

There is also the addition of a navigation drawer, much like we’ve seen in many other note taking apps. Swipe from the left to view a list of your notebooks, tags, and shortcuts.

Web clippings have finally arrived on Android, as well. Click the Share button on any web page, choose your notebook destination, and there you have it! The web clipping is added to your notebook of choice.

There are also a few other features to make life a bit easier for heavy users of the platform. Searching is easier than ever, due to the search box at the top of the screen, present at all times. And while you’re at it, you can now share full notebooks with other Evernote users just by clicking a share button at the top of your notebook.

Also added, are a few more fixes to improve the usability of the app:

  • Cleaner note editor layout improves viewing and updating notes
  • Redesigned tablet experience
  • New camera makes switching between modes a snap
  • Enhanced handwriting support with pinch to zoom and better recognition

The folks at Evernote have been hard at work to make their awesome app even better. If you haven’t yet, check out the update for yourself!
