Adobe Flash 11, Foursquare, Evernote, Tumblr, Google Reader, and Swiftkey X All Receive Updates

Not sure what the deal is, but I had like 12 apps asking to be updated this afternoon. Flash Player 11 received some security fixes, Tumblr fixed bugs and added new post screens, Foursquare changed icons, Swiftkey X improved, and Evernote made it easier to go “Premium.” Nothing major from most of these, but you may want to cruise into your market if you haven’t been notified yet and see if anything has a new version. I guess Friday is now a prime time to update your apps before the weekend.

Evernote Beta Released for Honeycomb

Back at Google I/O, a version of Evernote that was built specifically for Honeycomb and bigger screened devices was demoed, but was unfortunately without a firm release date.  Luckily for all of us, these app companies are starting to really use their forums as a place to test stuff and in the case of Evernote, have released a beta version of this new and impressive tablet version.  And while I’ve never really found a bunch of uses for this app like so many of you, I will say that the UI is very impressive.  If you are rockin’ one of the various Honeycomb tablets in the wild, this would be an app to check out.

Evernote Updated to Version 3.0: More Sharing, Map Fun, and New Widget Added

So Evernote just received a giant update today, bringing it up to version 3.0.  In it, you’ll find everything you see listed above.  I’d say more, but instead I need to ask a few questions to all of the Evernote users in the building that I’ve been dying to find answers to.

What exactly do you all use this app for?  It seems to have this cult following of tech geeks, but I’m just not getting it.  What are you all taking notes of?  I used it for X-mas gift lists last year and have used it for grocery trips at times, but other than that, I’m struggling to find reasons for this to be in my life.  Is there an underground note-taking society that I need to join?  Are you all sharing pr0n collection lists?  I’d love to hear what I’m missing out on.

Oh, and new feature video after the jump.   (more…)
