Evernote 4.0 sports a new UI for iPhone, iPod touch users


Evernote has released a major update to its iOS application adding a significantly redesigned interface for the iPhone and iPod touch. Although a universal app, Evernote 4.0 focuses primarily on enhancements for iPhone and iPod touch users with a new intelligent “Snippet view” that allows users to see more useful content in their note listings as well as new views to easily browse through all of the images and attachments contained in notes. The new version also allows multiple images and recordings to be attached to a single note, increases the maximum recording time for audio notes to 90 minutes and allows users to add text and snapshots to an audio note while recording. Location data attached to notes can now be viewed and modified from within the iOS app and the update also improves the search feature for viewing notes in specific notebooks, finding notes by tag and faster access to saved searches. The release notes also indicate coming support for stacks, shared notebooks and a major update for iPad users. Evernote 4.0 is available from the App Store as a free download.
