Popular note taking app Evernote is adding another platform to its resume and gaining complete saturation across all mobile operating systems with the announcement that it is now available on Windows Phone 7 devices.
The version of Evernote for Microsoft’s new mobile operating system has a whole host of features and applications to make it a full-bodied, comprehensive note taking experience, and a new UI to take advantage of its new Windows Phone setting.
In its announcement, Evernote described the Windows Phone 7 version of its app as “embrac[ing] the glance and go sensibility of the platform.” With this in mind, the home screen of the app will feature four “pivot panels,” which will give users access to their notes, notebooks, tags, and recent notes.
In terms of actual note creation, Evernote provides copious options for customizing and adding various media. Aside from just writing text for a note, users can attach a photo (either a saved photo, or open the camera on their phone and use the snapshot function on Evernote to take and attach a new image) or record an audio clip.
Users can also tag their notes, grouping them by topic for easier management. And, through the use of Microsoft’s Bing Maps technology, users can allow Evernote to access their location data so they can see where various notes were created and see exactly where they were when they jotted down that reminder for milk.
The app also lets users share notes, if they want, by uploading them to Facebook or sending them via email in just a few clicks.
Price and Availability
All of the features above are available in both the premium and free versions of Evernote for Windows Phone 7. Premium users also gain the ability to download entire notebooks for offline access, and also get more storage space (1 GB per month vs. 60 MB per month for free users) and the ability to create bigger notes (50 MB max vs. 25 MB max for free users). Premium users will also be spared from the ads and promotions that are integrated into the free version of the app.
Evernote is currently available for free in the Windows Phone 7 marketplace. The premium version is also available for a charge of either $5 per month or $45 per year.
