Evernote Web Gets Image Slideshows and LinkedIn Sharing

Posted: 02 Aug 2012 12:57 PM PDT

Here at Evernote, we use our Web version all the time on shared computers. It’s a great, full-featured way to access your notes wherever you may be. Now, we’ve made it even better with a new slideshow view for images within notes and LinkedIn sharing. Let’s take a look.

Visit Evernote Web


Viewing photos and images is all about framing, you want to remove distractions that might affect your viewing experience. That’s what we did in our new Slideshow view. Whenever you’re browsing a note that contains images, click on the Slideshow icon in the top of the note pane. When you click the icon, the screen goes dark and your photos take center stage. You can then click through all the images contained in the note. On some browsers, you can even take the images full-screen.

At the office, we often use Shared Notebooks for product designs, and we use this Slideshow feature to easily walk through the image during design review meetings. Slideshows are also a great way to view travel photos or that multi-course meal you saved in Evernote Food.

LinkedIn sharing

We use Evernote for all aspects of our lives. While most of what’s saved in Evernote is private, some of it deserves a wider audience. In this update, we let you share your memories with your professional network through LinkedIn. Take advantage of the new feature by clicking on the sharing arrow at the top of the note pane.

We’re constantly improving the Evenote Web client for those times when you don’t have your computer handy or don’t want to install software. If you haven’t seen the Web client in a while, check it out.

Evernote for Mac Gets Account Switching for Premium Accounts and More

Posted: 02 Aug 2012 10:50 AM PDT

Today, Evernote for Mac (3.3) gets a bunch of new features, including a brand new Premium-only feature: account switching. Let’s take a look at all the new stuff.

Get Evernote for Mac

New Premium Feature: Account Switching

Evernote for Mac now lets Premium users quickly switch between different accounts without having to sign out and sign back in. You’ll find the Add Account… feature under the Evernote menu.

As a Premium user, you’ll be able to switch between one Free account and as many Premium accounts as you like. Whenever you switch from one account to another, the Evernote app screen reloads and displays the other account with all the notes that had synched the last time you viewed it. There’s even a keyboard shortcut CMD+CTRL+A to quickly switch accounts.

After the first time you sign in, Evernote won’t ask you to enter your password. If you want, you can always sign out of your account once you’re done using it. This feature is great for families and classrooms where a single computer is shared among several people.

LinkedIn sharing

We’ve added a new option when sharing a single note. You can now post a note to LinkedIn. Access the LinkedIn integration from the sharing arrow in the note panel.

New keyboard shortcuts

We’ve added one new keyboard shortcut and made another one more useful.

  • CMD+CTRL+K: This shortcut adds text strikethrough
  • CMD+Shift+D: This shortcut adds a date into the body of a note, and now also into the title

Checkbox improvements

You can now turn a bunch of lines into checkboxes at once. To do this, select all of the lines that you want to become checkboxes, then click on the checkbox option in the formatting toolbar.

And much more…

That’s not all. Here are even more features and capabilities that make this app a pleasure to use.

  • The List View now has a tag column
  • Activity Stream items are easier to click
  • Numerous stability improvements for Snow Leopard and Mountain Lion

All of these improvements are in addition to loads of fixes and improvements. Let us know what you think.

Two notes to Mac App Store users

If you get your Evernote updates through the Mac App Store, then you’re getting two updates in one today. Check out all the other great features that are included in your update in our recent Mac update post.

Also, the Mac App Store version of Evernote complies with new Apple sandboxing requirements that change the way apps work with other installed applications and core system functions. We have been able to test a variety of scenarios, but it is possible that users on older versions of Mac OS X will experience changes in functionality.
