Evernote has just released a new version of their excellent and free Android client, introducing innovative interface changes, a refreshed color scheme, ICS-like “Action Bars” for context-sensitive operations, and more. Already a top-ranking application, it is now better than ever.
The most notable change in the UI is the new homepage “swipe” mechanism. This is pretty Metro, actually. The new homepage doesn’t take up the full screen, but only most of it. The notebook log peeks in from the right side – give it a quick swipe, and it slides into view.
Evernote also makes it easy to see your current quota usage, as well as your premium status (which is where they get their money). If you have many textual notes, you will like the new reading mode as well. As you scroll down to read the rest of the note, all of the UI slides out of view, leaving you with nothing but your text. If you want to do anything with the note, just give the screen a quick tap and the interface instantly shows up again.
Visually, Evernote 4.0 for Android feels like an interesting blend of Ice Cream Sandwich (context bars, native controls and color scheme) with Windows Phone 7 (the home screen layout, large command tiles). With over 299,000 Google Play reviews ranking it at an astounding 4.7 average as well as an Editor’s Choice award, Evernote for Android is one of the platform’s must-have apps, and is now slicker than ever.
