Evernote has again revamped its iOS interface. The save-everything service launched version 5.0 today, with a new, card-centric UI with the goal of easier access to the many categories inside the application.
The redesign includes a series of stacked cards that are divided up by notes, notebooks, tags, and other categories. Users will be able to tap and slide the headers to maneuver through the application.
The Evernote Blog also describes the changes that are forthcoming to iPad.
“On iPad, we used the larger screen size to give you fast access to your most recently viewed notes on the Home Screen in a easy to browse, swipeable list. This makes it easy to jump back and forth between multiple notes,” the blog post noted.
A new Places view displays all of the notes on a map, with tiny flags representing the location of where the note was taken.
The interface overall has additional polish, with more detailed graphics and textures throughout. It has a very Apple-centric feel, with some skeumorphic tendencies like paper and file folder mimicry.
Evernote also improves the Page Camera, with better image recognition and tighter cropping around page edges.
Evernote has redesigned itself a number of times since it launched in 2008. Few applications are willing to undertake radical changes as Evernote has. Given its wide user base, it does not appear that the constant retooling is injuring its relations with customers.
No word on if these kind of interface changes are planned for the Android version. Evernote also makes a mobile app for Windows Phone and BlackBerry.
