Evernote pushed an update to its Android app yesterday, an update that brought a Material Design flavor with it. The update isn’t necessarily an overhaul, by any stretch of the imagination, but it does bring added polish in areas like colors, typography and flatness, to give it that Material feel throughout. The Evernote designers focused on creating independent layers and subtle animations to give the impression of depth and a “sense of hierarchy.”
The update also adds things like customizable quick notes, long presses to add or remove quick note options, a revamped navigation, simpler navigation drawer, and more. (more…)
Remember the deal we wrote up a month ago for a productivity pack that included premium subscriptions to Evernote, Pocket, Wunderlist, LastPass and the New York Times, at a ridiculously low price of $59.99? We now have that deal in our DL Deals shop, only it’s better than ever. If you pick-up the 5-Star Productivity Pack from us, you also get a 3-month premium subscription to Dropbox Pro for that same $59.99 price.
The total value here is around $182, so you are getting a solid discount. Keep in mind that the deal only runs for a week.

Evernote, the venerable task and note organizer, keeps doing the impossible: becoming even more useful than it already is. Last week, the development team announced Context, an augmented reality function that intelligently adds information to notes. (more…)
The parade of Material Design updates continues with Evernote, which just received a major revision on Google Play. Version 6 of the venerable note-taking app includes a bevy of new features, a few of which the Evernote team highlighted in a blog post this morning. (more…)
Sunrise, a popular iOS calendar app that made its way to Android (and the web) a few weeks back, received a solid update today that features support for other apps. Those apps include SongKick, Evernote, Github, Asana, and Tripit, so that you can add concerts directly into your calendar, receive reminders, synchronize travel plans, and see changes in real-time to projects.
Other apps will be introduced in the feature.
The update is live on Google Play. (more…)
If you use SwiftKey and are as horrible a touch typist as I am, you’ll be extremely pleased to hear that the makers of the venerable third-party keyboard for Android are rolling out features to improve typing predictions and autocorrect.
Updated personalization options within SwiftKey version 4.4.5 allow the app to collect typographical data from Google+ public posts and Evernote archives, much in the same way as Google’s most recent Keyboard release. The app goes one step further for owners of iOS devices; if you have SwiftKey Note connected to Evernote, the app will now also glean typographical information from that. (more…)
Evernote for Android received its first major update in some time this morning, one that includes handwriting. As Evernote puts it, “Sometimes there’s no better way to capture an idea than to write it down or sketch it out,” so that’s what we’ve got now.
As you can see in the screenshots below and the embedded video, this is more than a separate handwriting add-on. Evernote wanted you to be able to go “from writing to typing to taking photos and back all within a single note.” So if you are recording a lecture, you can still type out notes and then switch to handwriting to draw examples, charts, or boredom-laden smiley faces.
Oh, the handwriting has also been made searchable, assuming your handwriting is clear enough. Pretty neat, right? (more…)
