When it comes to note taking on Windows Phone you have a variety of options. There’s the built-in Office suite that includes OneNote with SkyDrive integration. And there are others, like popular cross-platform app Evernote. It has been updated on Windows Phone and brings a slew of new features that you’ll want to take advantage of right away if you’re a fan of the elephant. Details after the break.
The last big update to Evernote came in late March of this year. The app was bumped to version 3.0 and brought a new design with some new features. Here’s what you’ll get when you update to version 4:
- Windows Phone 8 support: Faster loading and navigation
- Multishot camera: Take multiple snapshots without exiting the camera
- Slideshow: Swipe through a slideshow of all images attached to a note
- Speech to text: Transcribe your words and save the audio to the note
- Auto-title: Smart note titles based on note content, calendar events and location
Anytime an app developer claims speed improvements with an update you can only test it by trying it. Evernote version 4.0 does seem to be a lot snappier and responsive than the last time we used. The new transcribe feature is pretty handy and a nice way to create notes on the fly. If the output text isn’t quite right, you can always just place back the audio file.
Unfortunately, the app still doesn’t include a double wide tile or lockscreen support. Features that both could present interesting implementations with a note taking application.
Evernote for Windows Phone is available for both Windows Phone 7.x and 8. Although it looks like this particular update is only for Windows Phone 8 users. It’s a free app and you can grab it in the Store. Otherwise hit up the QR code or swipe to the right in our app.
