For our readers who count themselves fans of Evernote, the note taking app, there's good news. The desktop version just got a few new upgrades that fixed some things and added at least one new sweet feature.
Evernote allows you to take a voice note, snap a picture, or jot a note while you're on the go, then synch it with your desktop account so your notes are available wherever you are. On the desktop version, you can snip web pages, copy maps, take all the notes you want, then synch them back to your phone for on the go reference.
This sort of thing comes in handy when you're shopping for a big ticket item and you do your research online. Simply gather all your notes and pictures and links, synch them to your iPhone, and you have a pocket Consumer Reports when you roll up to the store.
With the latest update, Evernote's added French, German, Italian and Spanish to the application languages, broadening the app's appeal. Speaking of languages, the folks at Evernote are also working on improving their handwriting recognition apsects. So if you take a picture of a jotted down list, Evernote's search function can locate those words when you're seeking a specific bullet point. With improvements to their language recognition, they're putting out the call for handwriting samples in the above languages to get those up to speed.
Also apparently, the Safari clipper was a bit buggy, so they've ironed some wrinkles out of that browser toolbar, as well as fixed a few other little issues.
And for the bold-hearted, just as a number of other software manufacturers offer, Evernote's latest edition lets you subscribe to the beta release the moment it's available. This gives you cool new features first, but beware, these builds are less stable than the regular release, and you might find your notes disappearing into the ether.
You can download the latest version of Evernote here while the iPhone app can be found here.
