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.
As you type in the app or on the Web, Context automatically populates the space below with relevant background by sourcing past notes, notes shared by friends, family, and coworkers, and publications like The Wall Street Journal. All are saveable with a click or tap, but Evernote stresses that information about your habits will not be sent to publishers.
To kick off the launch of Context, Evernote is partnering with the Journal to offer a year of Evernote Premium with every newspaper subscription. Check if you are eligible by logging into your WSJ account.
Context requires Evernote Premium or Business, which start at $5 per month. The app itself is free.
