Following the introduction of the new Evernote 5 design for Mac, the cloud-based note company has announced that a major redesign is coming to iOS as well, bringing a major new look along with changes that make it faster than ever to find the notes you want.
On their official blog, Evernote explains the changes:
We’ve learned a lot over the years about how people use Evernote on mobile devices. It’s all about speed. Whether you’re creating a note or browsing to one, everything needs to happen fast. Also, you want the app to easily support your preferred organization scheme. If you’re a tagger, then tags must be front-and-center. If you put everything into notebooks, then those need to be quickly accessible.
And, everything needs to be one or two taps away.
This thinking led us to completely redesign the app. We introduced Views for Notes, Notebooks, Tags, and Places. We added Quick Note buttons to let you easily create a note with a single click, and, on iPad we added a Recent Notes list to make multi-tasking easier.
I’ve sometimes found Evernote clunky to use, so I look forward to any change that makes it easier to access my data.
The new update is coming “very soon” but otherwise there’s no ETA.
