Just hours after announcing its acquisition of Penultimate, Evernote has released an update to its iOS app that promises to deliver some major improvements to note taking on the iPhone. It has improved the way in which the app handles attachments and checkboxes, added support for Photo Stream, redesigned the audio recorder, and more.

Evernote version 4.2.0 is available to download from the App Store now. In addition to numerous bug fixes and enhancements, it delivers the following new features and improvements:

Major note editor upgrade and redesign for iOS 5 on iPhone
• Easy access to attachment features
• Improved placement of text styling and formatting options
• Redesigned note info screen
• More powerful note editing capabilities

Improved checkbox functionality for iOS 5 on iPhone
• Added support for checkbox indentation
• Create a checkbox list by adding a new line after the first box

Improved attachments
• Added support for Photo Stream images
• Redesigned audio recorder

Note Editor settings
• Option to turn off note auto-titling
• Option to turn off automatic Save to Camera Roll function

Unfortunately, there’s no new fancy handwriting tool as a result of its Penultimate purchase just yet, but we’re expecting that to happen sometime in the near future.

    I love Evernote! I use it all the time and recommend it to folks as a must-have app. This update is really useful and makes the app an even more valuable tool. Dropbox, Simplenote/Justnotes, and Evernote are my 3 favorite go-to productivity tools. (Justnotes is the Mac complement to Simplenote. You need to get it! It’s free, too)
