While after a discussion we at Android Police were unable to determine exactly why Evernote couldn't implement the functionality of its newest Android app, Food, into the existing Evernote app, we were able to settle on one thing: people take too many pictures of the things they eat. Evernote Food wants you to do this more, though, and has a veritable cornucopia of tools at your disposal to make you the ultimate delicacy documentarian.
Some people are simply amazing with remembering faces. I'm not one of them. Evernote, creator of the widely-renowned note-taking app of the same name, has set out to help me with Evernote Hello. I guess you guys can use the app too. The app is a visual contact list that puts your contacts' faces front and center. It even allows you to take down notes of how you met someone, and tie notes in your Evernote account to your contacts' encounters.
The world of the future has some pretty great products to keep productive. Things like Google Calendar, Dropbox, Evernote, and a myriad of other services all aim to make our lives easier and more cloud-centric. Trouble is that these services are all separate. When a group you're working with adds a new event to a Google Calendar, adds some relevant files to Dropbox, and scribbles some notes in Evernote, that's three different sites you need to track.
Evernote is a great little cross-platform service that lets you sync notes between devices and save them in the cloud. Using Evernote is so seamless for me, it's like outsourcing my memories to the internet. The app was nothing to sneeze at before, but it just got a big update to version 4.0 that brings a new look and a few features that fit in perfectly with Android 4.0.
There is a new home screen with big, friendly buttons to make a new text note, audio note, photo, or upload a file of any sort.
If you haven't tried out Evernote, you're missing out. It is, hands-down, one of the best note-taking applications for Android. It's not just on Android, though - it's cross platform and always in-sync. This means you always have your notes with you wherever you may be.
Today, the Evernote team added an array of useful features to its already impressive app, including
audio notes with speech-to-text transcriptions,
improvements to note lists and larger thumbnails,
the ability to disable auto-titling,
improved legibility of the settings screen,
a feature to help discover more of what Evernote has to offer on Android tablets,
I am a big fan of Evernote, using it everyday to manage my to-do list and work on long-term projects. However, over the years this "simple" note-taking suite has expanded with an unwieldy number of features, making it somewhat difficult to manage. So, it is always nice to see an Evernote update for Android that just aims to make the service better without adding further bloat.
The recent update (version 3.5), downloadable from the Android Market, adds smart titles, quick saves, better layout of images, and a number of crucial bug fixes.
ZeroPC is this crazy service that lets you access all the popular cloud services from one place. "All the popular cloud services" is shorthand for Box.net, Dropbox, Evernote, Facebook, Flickr, Google Docs, Instagram, Picasa and SugarSync. Yeah, everything.
The website is insane. They've whipped up an in-browser operating system. Imagine a Linux-based OS in your browser. That's exactly what the website looks like.
However, this is an Android blog, so we should probably focus on the freshly-released Android Tablet (only) app.
Evernote, one of the most popular note apps for Android, got an update to version 3.2 recently, bringing integration with Skitch, offline search capability and a handful of other features that make it a huge step up from previous versions.
Skitch was recently acquired by Evernote, and brings a fun/useful doodle annotation functionality to the app, allowing the user to switch between apps editing the same note with the touch of an icon.
As I'm not one to enjoy doing large amount of typing on my mobile phone, I have a number of applications that make the job easier. These apps are usually employed to make quick, short notes that I can index and access later, therefore saving me a lot of trouble.
Coming to us from Singaporean developer 2nd Class Citizen, that's exactly what Chop Chop looks to do, only with some unique features the differentiate it from the rest.
I've been using Evernote for quite a while now, and while I really like it, there are things that I've found myself wishing it had. It's almost as if the Evernote team read my mind, because they have incorporated all of the features that I frequently use on the desktop version to the mobile version, including rich text formatting, bullet points, lists, and checkboxes, making the overall experience much more akin to that of the desktop.
