Evernote iOS app update offers rich text support, shared notebooks, more

The folks at Evernote rolled out a pretty significant update to its iOS app today that includes rich text support, shared notebooks, a redesigned iPad interface and more.

Andrew Sinkov said on Evernote's blog that implementing rich text was "a doozy." Users can stylize text, add highlights and URLs, create headers and make lists. This also involved overhauling a bit of the iPhone app to work in the features. In addition to creating new rich-text messages, existing ones can be edited. However, you still can't create checkboxes without using the desktop version of Evernote.

The feature I've looked forward to most is accessing any notebook that's shared with you from any iOS device. When the shared notebooks are accessed, they also are stored locally. Users can now search within a particular note as well.

Other additions include:

  • Slideshow view that allows viewing of only images attached to a particular note. They can be saved into the iDevice's camera roll or be copied to the clipboard.
  • A redesign of the iPad interface
  • Updates to the All Notes view, which now displays notes as snippets.
  • Premium Evernote users can add a passcode to the app.

The Evernote update is available now via the App Store.
