Long-pressing the Evernote icon on your launcher in Android 7.1 will reveal four default options: Search, Simple Note, Audio, Camera. As with other Android 7.1 app shortcuts, you can also drag the shortcut to your home screen to create a shortcut to the shortcut. The app shortcuts work both on the home screen as well as in the app drawer.
This is the first non-Google app we’ve seen to support Android 7.1’s launcher shortcuts, but it definitely won’t be the last. If you spot any other app updates delivering this functionality, be sure to tip us or hit the comments to share. The Evernote update also delivers “note stats”, improvements to the note-taking camera’s auto-focus and bug fixes.
