Evernote, the wildly popular note-taking service, has a big following - but it hasn't really been properly adapted to the big screen, yet. We heard that was about to change back at I/O (we didn't have time to hit up the Evernote booth in the frenzy that was the conference), but the folks over at ArsTechnica sat down with the developers of Evernote and got the scoop.

Update 5/29/11: The first beta download of Evernote for Honeycomb is now live - grab it from here.

Evernote for Honeycomb will be bringing an awesome new rich-text editor to the app, optimized for tablet use. That means you can format text in bullets, insert images, and more.

Bullets, bold text, and numbering

On a phone, I think this would be of limited usefulness. I already have a hard enough time with editing my plain text in the Google Docs app. On a tablet, though - this could be great, because you can actually see enough of the document (and can select text easily) to make rich formatting useful.

Evernote's app will be updated to include native Honeycomb support some time in the near future - and we'll certainly be on the lookout for it.

ArsTechnica, thanks wiineeth!

    Late to the party. I've already switched to SpringPad.

    Evernote isn't too bad on my Xoom. For a non-honeycomb optimised app, it's still very workable, much more so than other apps.

    Still, this will be a lovely addition.

    Very good app that has the potential to be a great app. developer works hard to update an already very useful app they care about making the best on the market!
