Evernote overhauls its iOS app with focus on speed and simplicity

The popular note-taking app slims down and speeds up to make you more productive.

Evernote’s reputation took a hit last month after making headlines over a change to its privacy policy that made it sound like its engineers could poke through your notes whenever they want. The news alarmed users, though Evernote quickly clarified that its engineers look at notes only to improve the app’s machine learning capabilities and don’t know who those notes belong to. Users can opt out of the app’s machine learning features, like auto-created to-do lists, if they don’t want their notes used to improve the app, or create password-protected encrypted notes that Evernote’s engineers can’t read.

This release proves Evernote is paying attention to what its users want: a super-fast, feature-rich note-taking app with an easy-to-use design and cross-platform support. And, as the company recently learned, privacy is hugely important.

Evernote 8.0 starts rolling out for iOS users on Tuesday. Stay tuned for our full review.
