APP OF THE DAY: Evernote (Android tablets)

Android, Android apps, Tablet, Tech Digest news

Evernote, the digital scrapbook service that archives and syncs your notes, photos and voice memos across multiple platforms, gets an Android makeover for tablets today.

Taking its cues from last year’s iPad app version, you’re presented with a homescreen with a “Snippet View” left hand panel that lets you get a quick glimpse at the content of your collected notes, as well as a larger viewing area to the side.

A revamped keyboard adds shortcut buttons to the navigation controls for making new notes and searching your library. Previous seraches are saved for quick access later on, while the location that your notes were taken can now also be used to search your scrapbook.

Social networking functionality and sharing features get a boost thanks to better Facebook and integration in the single note view, as well as adding the ability to make rich text notes.

Rounding off the new features is an improved widget for Android users, with a larger view now an option. Smartphone performance is also now “dramatically faster”.

The app can be grabbed from the Android Market today by clicking here, free of charge.
