Your Evernote Web experience just got better, and that’s true even if you don’t use Evernote much yourself. Aside from a significant redesign to the Web interface, Evernote has also rolled out a brand new look for shared notes. Every version of Evernote lets you share notes via social networks, email, and more, and viewing these shared notes has gotten a whole lot nicer.

To start, the content of the shared notes is now much more visible, placed right in the center of the note. If the shared note has more than one image in it, you can click the Slideshow button to view all the images in a slideshow interface. You can also click the Share button to re-share the note with your friends, if you wish. If you’re logged into your own Evernote account, you can also copy the entire note into your own Evernote notebook.

Aside from shared notes, you can log into Evernote Web to see some nice design changes. You will now see a label at the top of the note list, so you always know which notebook you’re in. The notebook icons have been redesigned, as has been the green bar at the top of the entire interface. If you’re using a small screen, you can now easily hide the left notebooks list using an arrow button on the bottom left of the page.

While these are not huge usability changes, it’s nice to see a redesign done every now and then, and the changes to shared notes, notebooks and the sidebar could be very useful. What do you think of the new changes?

    It is NOT nicer to view wide notes such as tables with this new "pretty" view. I have created dozens of such notes in Evernote for Windows which of course sensibly allows one to create and view a note using the whole screen. Until this "improvement" my shared notes could also be viewed full screen and as such I created and shared wide notes with my clients. All such notes are now hopelessly frustrating to view given that they are now forced into a portrait only view in the centre of the screen. Worse the horizontal scroll is within the actual note window and is hidden out of sight with long notes.

      Sounds frustrating indeed. Did you try contacting Evernote about it? I'm sure you're not the only one to encounter this problem.

    I send articles from NetNewsWire to Evernote daily. I use the Chrome web clipper to save articles too. Don't get into the web app too often though. Like Mac Kitty, I wish it would run in the menu bar only, instead of taking up a spot in my dock.

    Great update.

    The sharing is much better. Now you share a note.
    Before that, you shared a note, but the list of all the other notes in the same notebook was also visible.

    But now, we can use evernote as a simple blog. :-)

    Very nice, I do like their work of doing/keeping it "simple"

    (The only thing I don't like with Evernote is that it "lives" in both the dock and menu bar in Mac OS X)
