Evernote has updated its Mac app with a Yosemite-inspired design. Now in version 6, Evernote also introduced a number of changes, including faster sync speeds, the ability to resize images and tables, better search, and fixes to over 500 bugs.

Here are the new features that are introduced:

  • Sleek new design inspired by OS X Yosemite.

  • Search results are now ordered by relevance.
  • Faster notebook selector at the top of the note list remembers your recently used notebooks.
  • Redesigned checkboxes in the note editor are easier to click.
  • Evernote will now stay logged in by default.
  • Search your notes with Spotlight.
  • Send messages to share notes and discuss things you're working on without leaving Evernote.

Evernote also added a new premium context feature, which does the following:

  • Context displays notes, articles, and people related to what you're working on.
  • View related articles from The Wall Street Journal and other sources and related people from LinkedIn and your business.

Along with a new design, new features are also added to the Presentation Mode.

Overall, the update is a big one for Evernote users. If you're an Evernote user, be sure to check out the iOS app as well.
