Evernote 4.0 for Android Ushers-In Some New Design Changes


Evernote offers its users some pretty useful cross-platform organizational tools, helping you keep track of notes, pictures, audio memos, and more. We’ve talked about the app on various mobile platforms at some length before, and this week its Android edition gets a pretty substantial makeover, introducing some new ways to interact with the app in Evernote 4.0.

The Evernote 4.0 changes are all about making accessing your notes easier and more natural. That means things like new gesture controls, including swipes to quickly transition from reading a note, back to the app’s home screen, as well as cycling between ways to view your notes by category.

The home screen itself gets a new design, giving you quick access to options for creating new notes, as well as showing a quick run-down on what you’ve already stored. The action bar at the bottom of the screen gets contextual options, changing between editing or sharing functions based on what you’re currently viewing.

Both the note and notebook lists are seeing some attention, now showing more content at once to quickly let you get to what you’re looking for. Once you finally pull-up a note, it will expand to fill your phone’s screen as you start scrolling through it.

Other changes in this release include a location-based display for notes tagged with Places data, showing you which notes you took, and where, as well as new ways to access app settings. You can check out all the new changes by grabbing Evernote 4.0 from the Google Play store now.
