Not long ago, I wrote a post in which I described some features that I wished were available on some of the apps that I use on the iPad. In the caes of Evernote, which I use constantly as my paperless filing cabinet, there were two things that I really wanted:
- The ability to mark a note as “offline” so that it would be available even if a Wi-Fi connection wasn’t
- The ability to do rich text editing in a note the way you can in the Mac and web versions.
Well, as it turns out, Evernote already had the ability to do the offline notes. It was not exactly how I’d imagined it but it suits my needs just fine. From Evernote’s settings, you can mark a notebook as “offline” and that makes all of its content available even if you have no network connection.
And just yesterday, I noticed a new version of the Evernote app that, among other things, allows me to edit existing notes inline, as opposed to appending to them, and allows me to do rich text editing. This is a wonderful improvement and I applaud the folks over at Evernote for continuing to improve an already outstanding piece of software.
