Evernote version 5.0 was just released for iOS today, bringing a completely new user interface to the popular note taking app.
The old UI was a bit crowded with all it’s buttons, and the usual black iOS bar, but it’s now replaced with a unique evernote design, where the Evernote main menu now has five tabs for All Notes, Notebooks, Tags, Places, or Premium Features. Clicking on tab takes you to a fullscreen app, and you can drag down the tab header to return back to the main menu.
Apparently Evernote was trying to make sure that “everything needs to be one or two taps away,” and it appears they managed to pull it off in the design. Apart from that, there’s new controls, an improved page camera, unified shared notebook list, and more:
