Evernote has finally updated its iOS app with new features that will surely come in handy. Users can now sketch right within a note, something that has been possible with the Android version since 2014. Split-screen is also in the mix, making things more convenient for iPad users.
iOS users can use the new sketch feature to draw within an already opened note, or create a new one. The app supports drawing with the new Pencil for the iPad Pro, but users can also draw things using one of the many third-party stylus accessories available for the iPhone and iPad.
When it comes down to the line weight, it can be adjusted using the 3D Touch feature.
Bear in mind that all of your sketches will sync across all devices, includingthose running on Android, and they will still remain editable. Furthermore, Evernote pointed out that the app's handwringing technology can easily distinguish your scribbles, which makes it easier to find text within them.
To begin your first draft when a note is opened, just search for the pen icon and tap it. After that, the screen should then convert into a canvas, similar to what professional designers would use when sketching a drawing. Users have the option of using a Selector Tool, Pen, Eraser and a Highlighter.
Each tool comes with its own line thickness, and it is also possible to choose from up to 10 different colors. Whenever the sketch is completed, the canvas will then be saved, and from there it will automatically resize for the note.
On the iPad Pro, iPad Air 2, and iPad Mini 4, the new Evernote update also supports split screen functionality. Just swipe your fingers from the side to allow for two apps to run at the same time, side by side.
Evernote has always been one of the best note taking apps available on iOS. Outside of sketching, users can add photos, videos, other files, along with clipping a whole web page or parts of it.
The new Evernote app is available for download from the Apple iTunes store.
