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.

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.
