If you’ve been leading a paper-cluttered life, it’s time to make good use of your smartphone by downloading a note-taking app. With over 10 million downloads and counting, Evernote is one of the must-have Android apps to stay organize.
The latest Evernote app, now on version 4.0, comes with a brand-spanking new look and features. The redesigned home screen shows a scrollable display of all your notes based on dates — along with a preview of the content, which would make it easier for you to look for a note and open it. The notebook list has also been updated, as it now combines user notebooks with shared notebooks. The new contextual “Action Bars”, meanwhile, give you easy access to more functionality.
Swipeable navigation is another new addition to Evernote. You can now swipe right from your note and note list to show the home screen, saving you the hassle of clicking back and forth. The swipeable navigation also works when you want to move from Notebook to Tag to Place views.
The changes are just the cherry on top for what’s already a solid note-taking app. You can easily make a regular note, an indented or numbered list, to-dos, a task list, and many more. You can even insert photo and audio. Evernote also lets you sync your notes across desktop computers, Android and iOS devices, and other platforms – which is one of the strongest points of the app.
Check out Evernote 4.0 for Android on Google Play now if you haven’t already done so, and say goodbye to those piles of papers. If this isn’t your cup of tea, you definitely want to read our list of the best note-taking apps on Android.
