Evernote, it seems, apart from updating its Android and iOS apps from time to time, is also taking note of its Windows Phone version of the app.
Per reports, popular note taking and archiving app Evernote has updated its Windows Phone mobile application with several new features for users to utilize the app to its fullest.
The app for Windows Phone has received a brand new update that includes a bunch of powerful new features like support for Evernote Business, improved creation and editing of styled text, PIN Lock feature for Premium users, and more.
The Evernote Business support is an extension of the company's core service for small and medium-sized businesses. It's currently available for $10 per user per month and is available in France, Germany, Switzerland, the UK, Canada, and the United States.
The Evernote for Windows Phone now lets users add notes to Business Notebooks. Users can create notes in Business Notebooks by either creating a new note when viewing a Business Notebook or by tapping on the notebook name along the top of a note that is currently being edited. The existing notes can also be moved into business Notebooks using the similar process.
Users can also search through their own Business Notebooks and those that others have shared with them from the Search screen by choosing Business Notebooks from the drop down menu.
The PIN lock feature is another important addition to the app (Premium version only). "Premium users can now lock Evernote with a PIN. This is great if you share your phone with others and want to be sure your notes are not accessible. Turn on PIN Lock by swiping left on the Setting screen. Once enabled, the app will lock after 10 minutes of inactivity with Evernote," the official blog states.
Moreover, all Evernote users will now see notebooks that they've joined in their notebooks list, and changes made to editing and creating styled text will also assist users with the new update. Now when creating a new note, users will new styling options beneath the keyboard, "including bulleted and numbered lists. You can now also edit bold and italic text right in-line-no more section-by-section editing."
Evernote first arrived on Windows Phone in 2011 and has since helped the company reach more than 34 million users, of which 1.4 million are paying.
