Evernote updated, adds new PDF viewer, Snippets, and more

Evernote has been updated to version 5.2, adding a slew of new features, including an improved PDF viewer, Snippets, new formatting options, and new features for Evernote Business. The new PDF viewer includes a multipage preview screen for PDFs, a rotation lock, and the ability to view two pages at once by changing your iPad’s orientation.

The iPad version can now display your notes as Snippets. First, change the note view from a grid to a list by pulling the note list down and tapping the icon in the upper right corner. Then select your desired note to open it in a panel that slides over.

The new formatting options are Simplify Formatting and Plain Text. Simplify Formatting is used to clean up formatting issues that you may encounter in a note, especially a web clip. Plain text formatting discards all rich text and images, leaving only text.

Evernote Business users will are now able to designate their business notebooks as offline, allowing their notes to load instantly without the need for an internet connection. Business users may now also view their company’s Business Library on the iPad.

The iPad version also gains the ability to view the Evernote Trunk, a curated list of apps, services and devices that connect to Evernote. Along with all of these enhancements, Evernote 5.2 contains a number of bug fixes and smaller improvements.

The update is free on the App Store.
