Popular note-taking service Evernote has launched a new version of its Android app. While Evernote has been available for Android for ages, the new app is designed to play well with tablets running Google Android 3.x Honeycomb.
The new app takes advantage of the larger displays on Android tablets to present more information at a glance. The home page, for instance features snippets of your latest notes with titles, dates, pictures, and text. But there’s also room at the left side of the display to switch views to see notebooks or tags. At the top of the home screen you’ll find buttons to create new notes, view a map, or start a search.
Tapping the search icon brings up a search bar without minimizing any of the other content. You can conduct a search and view the results all without leaving the page you were on.
When you tap on a note it expands to fill most of the display. You can delete, edit, or share notes from this view. You can also tap-and-hold on a note in the snippet view to edit, tag, share, or delete it.
There’s also a new larger Evernote home screen widget designed for tablets.
The updated app includes a rich text editor which lets you enter bold, italicized, or underlined text as well as bullet points and lists whether you’re using an Android tablet or smartphone.
Evernote is available as a free download from the Android Market.
