Evernote adds business card scanning and presentation mode for premium users

If you're an Evernote premium user, both the iPhone and iPad apps got updated to version 7.2 today. Business card scanning turns your business cards into editable notes while presentation mode turns your notes into presentations anywhere, anytime.

To enter presentation mode in Evernote 7.2, just tap on the more button with any note open and choose presentation. You can then browse your note in a more streamlined interface that you'd expect to find in a slideshow presentation. You can also switch between light and dark themes or AirPlay the content to any capable device.

Business card scanning works by letting you take a photo of any business card. Evernote then converts it into an editable note and can even connect with your LinkedIn address book. If you'd like, you can tell Evernote to email new contacts your information in return with no effort on your part.

I did come across an issue with the business card scanner feature though. I can't seem to get the flash to turn off which puts a heavy glare on cards. I've tried uninstalling and re-installing but it seems it may be something Evernote needs to issue a bug fix for. Anyone else experiencing this issue as well? Let us know in the comments, as well as what you think of the update in general!
