Yesterday evening, Evernote has announced the launch of Evernote for Windows Phone 7. Unlike Microsoft's OneNote, which is available for selected platforms only, is Evernote a cross-platform note-taking application which makes it easy to remember things big and small from your notable life using your computer, phone and the web by capturing everything. It allows to type a text note, clip a web page, snap a photo and grabbing a screenshot. Evernote for Windows Phone 7 lets users save and find ideas and memories any time, anywhere. As typical for Evernote, it seamlessly syncs with every other version but there's so much more. According to Evernote, the Windows Phone 7 version is the most feature-rich debut they ever had.
It is packed with capabilities and taking advantage of the innovative Windows Phone 7 Metro interface including its Pivot panels. Once signed in and gone through a short initial sync (existing users only), users will be greeted with the all new Windows Phone 7 interface that fully embraces the glance and go sensibility of the platform
The Evernote Pivot Panels are:
- Notes - A complete scrollable note list
- Notebooks - Tap on a notebook to view its contents
- Tags - Tap on a tag to see all the notes associated with it
- Recent notes - This list lets you jump to the 20 most recently viewed notes
As well as Evernote for Windows Phone 7 is displaying Notebook Stacks and hierarchical tags.
All screens of the Evernote for Windows Phone 7 app have options in the Application Bar and Application Bar menu that provide additional functionality related to the screen or expose advanced features.
Evernote for Windows Phone 7 allows to create new text notes which also gen get attached audio recordings and images, searching for notes, browsing for notes and mapping notes on Bing Maps. Furthermore it's possible to share notes with friends, either through Facebook or via E-Mail.
As all versions of Evernote, also Evernote for Windows Phone 7 is available free of charge. However, Evernote is also offering an Evernote Premium subscription which allows to download entire notebooks for offline access. However, any note that was created or viewed on the the Windows Phone 7 is stored on the device and is available for offline viewing anyway. This feature applies to all users, free and premium.
Evernote for Windows Phone 7 is now available for Microsoft's Marketplace. However, the current version has a little bug and therefore it's recommend to install and perform the initial log-in and sync while connected to WiFi.
