Android owners inflicted with the need to compulsively document each stage of life just received yet another upgrade to one of their foremost tools.
Version 4.1 of Evernote for Android has been released. The latest rendition of this most popular note taking app includes additional design features structured to take advantage of the tablet’s user interface.
Visual rendering improvements include a better contrast when reviewing the list of notes. This should increase the readability of individual items within the list. The Evernote home screen has been redesigned and the user has additional opportunities to swipe content windows in or out of the viewing area.
In addition to the emphasis on the user interface the app also spiked its use of geo tagging information. When a user creates a new note the app attaches the necessary geodata to the note ensuring the user can view and retrieve notes by place.
This continues the Evernote trend of turning the Android into a type of mobile diary. At some point in the future a reader will not only read the writer’s notes in chronological order but may easily review them in geocoded order as well.
An additional method for reviewing notes can take place through the new list view. This allows users to see the basic properties of a note without superfluous detail.
This latest round of updates brings the Android version of the app a bit closer to its iOS counterpart. The iOS version currently stands at 4.2.2.
