Evernote released a new version for iOS and it’s something else.
The Evernote team completely rebuilt it from the ground up and added extra functionality and style that was mostly reserved for the desktop version.
For long time users, the new look may be a bit of a shock.
This isn’t the Evernote you know- it looks and acts completely different.
Logging into Evernote 8 for iOS
When you first log into the app, the first thing you see are your notes!
The team have done a great job of making it easier to see your notes.
You can now see images and it’s a much more versatile way of seeing what you are looking for.
Changes in navigation
To navigate Evernote, you have to use the tap bar- the giant green plus sign at the bottom of the screen.
This button has a lot of hidden power!
- Tap on it once to start a new note from scratch
- Press and hold to access the audio, photo and reminder note options
One of the key new features that stand out is the robust photo functionality.
After you take a photo you can chose what type of note it’s saved as.
Based on what type of document you pick, Evernote does some magic to render it beautifully.
You no longer have to decide how you’ll use a picture before you take it.

More formatting options
In Evernote 8 for iOS you have access to all sorts of new formatting options.
You can select any text, highlight it and then format it in the same way you could on the desktop version.
You can also swipe across a note to manage it. You can:
- Star it
- Set a reminder
- Delete the note
This is a pretty standard mobile feature and great to see here!
To see and manage all your notes, tap the All Notes button at the top.
This new mobile optimized version of Evernote has a lot of hidden power and functionality.
But, the launch hasn’t been smooth with reviewers on iOS experiencing some less than perfect glitches. Only time will tell how this is received by the community!
Until next time, have fun storming the castle!
