Evernote has launched a major update to its Android app with support for sharing, better text editing, improved security, and more. The powerful note-taking app lets you create notes on your phone and view them in a desktop web browser or vice versa.

There’s a nice big blog post about the latest update, and a demo video. But someone apparently forgot to write up release notes in the Android Market because there’s nothing listed in the “What’s New” tab.

So here’s the short version of what’s new in Evernote 3.0:

  • You can browse and edit share notebooks shared by other users on your mobile device.
  • Post notes to Facebook, Twitter, or other apps.
  • Search within any notebook or create a note in a notebook to save time.
  • You can now create notebooks in the mobile app.
  • View locations of geotagged notes on a map.
  • Lock the app with a PIN (premium feature).

There’s also a new home screen widget and support for nested tags.

Some of the features, such as editing shared notebooks is only available if you or the person sharing a notebook have an Evernote Premium account . but most of the new features are available to all Evernote users.

Evernote 3.0 is available as a free download from the Android Market.
