Better, Faster Camera

The interface hasn't been tweaked in this release – you'll just notice a few more buttons around. The handwriting is probably the biggest change this time. This allows you to add a written note or doodle to any note. If you have a Galaxy Note device, this will be particularly handy. Notes made on other Evernote platforms (even ones with tables and advanced formatting) should be less wonky in the Android app now too. The update should be live for everyone.
