You've always been able to edit the contents of tables on your phone or tablet, but it's reasonable to expect the mobile experience to be similar to what you've long enjoyed on desktop. We heard you! With Evernote 10.6, we've brought table editing on mobile to parity with desktop devices. And not just that: Looking across the competitive landscape, we are confident that these new table editing capabilities are best-in-class for mobile.
