Evernote 5 For Android Brings New Camera Features, Revamped UI
Evernote updated the Android version of its app Monday to version 5, bringing an enhanced look to the app as well as a number of new features including support for the app’s Smart Notebook.
A multishot feature lets users snap multiple photos of a moment, and save them without ever leaving the in-app camera. Evernote is also bringing its “page camera” over from iOS, which uses the smartphone’s camera to turn Evernote into a pocket scanner. The page camera finds the edges of scanned pages, removes any shadows and improves the contrast, Evernote says.
The Page Camera function comes particularly in handy with Evernote’s Smart notebook. The Moleskine notebook is designed specifically to work along with Evernote. Dots on each page help page Camera create the optimal representation of a page within Evernote. Smart Stickers allow you to tag a page in real life, while simultaneously tagging the virtual page as well.
Premium users also get to enjoy some new goodies, namely in the form of Document search. Evernote will now search through attached documents, spreadsheets and presentations from the universal search.
Your shortcuts are always just a swipe to the left away, offering you quick access to your most frequently used notebooks and notes.
Engadget reports that there are continued issues with Evernote’s text recognition, which tends to be slow for non-premium users.
