Evernote has launched an updated version of its mobile app for Google Android. Evernote lets users take notes, record audio and take photographs and store all of the data online in their Evernote accounts. You can also find all of your existing notes in the mobile app using the search tools or by sorting by notebooks or tags.

Version 2.0 has a new home screen, a new search interface which makes it easier to search from any screen, and more sorting options. For instance, in addition to sorting notes by notebook, you can also browse notes by location or month.

There’s also support for integration with the Google Search widget on Android 2.1 and later, and a new Evernote widget that lets you create notes or conduct a search from your home screen. The old widget simply opened the Evernote app. You can also create home screen shortcuts to any Evernote search  or note.

Evernote 2.0 for Android can also be installed on the SD card to save you space, supports downloading attachments, and integrates into the Android OS so that you can send data from other apps to Evernote using the sharing tool.

Evernote is available as a free download from the Android Market and the basic service is free, but users who pay $5 per month or $45 per year for premium access get more features — including offline access to notebooks using the Google Android app.

You can find out more about Evernote 2.0 at the company blog, or check out the demo video after the break.

One reply on “Evernote 2.0 app for Android makes note taking easier”

  1. Obviously, a set of notes, in and of itself is a valuable thing. However, said set of notes becomes much, much more valuable if the notes themselves are related in an appropriate manner. Having context gives you a lot of benefits. For example, context enables both easy and quick discovery of information saving you time. Furthermore, context enables you to expand your knowledge without the risk of your knowledge becoming disjointed or fragmented.

    The majority of the note taking apps do not have the ability to semantically link notes, that is, placing notes within their appropriate context in relation to each other. NotesMappr allows you to do exactly that. NotesMappr is a semantic note taking app for Android. In other words, NotesMappr is note taking that fits your brain.
