Evernote Updates the Evernote iPhone App

I rely on the Evernote service every day for many things – tracking conversations, tracking interviews, recording license keys for software, carrying travel details on my iPad. It’s a great service … I can’t live without it.

The news of the day is that Evernote updated its iPhone app:

The Evernote blog has a long post on the new app:

The first thing you’ll notice is that we have unified browsing and note creation in the application’s new home screen. Your notes list is now shown in Snippet View. This view maximizes the amount of information that is presented in a small amount of space. If a note is text only, then the app will show the title of the note and as much text as will fit into the snippet. If the note only contains an image, then we’ll take a slice out of the image and present it full width. If the note has a mix of text and other forms of content, then we’ll show you the title, some text and a thumbnail. This means that you’ll get more at a glance than ever, in many cases allowing you to skip opening the note entirely.

My Comments
What I like about Evernote is that notes created on one computer or device synchronize across my other devices. So I have the same data available on my iMac, HP Mini, iPad, and BlackBerry. If I had an iPhone, it would be there too.

As a premium subscriber (yes, I pay money to Evernote), I can access and create notes offline. The way I use this is to synchronize Evernote notebooks and embedded PDFs and images to my iPad, for access wherever around the world – without needing a network connection.

Evernote is the second key application in my personal management system. Things does all my projects and next actions, and Evernote stores all my reference material.

If you haven’t tried it already, I recommend it.
