Evernote 3.0 Makes Syncing Instantaneous, Improves Capture Speed

iPhone/iPod touch: Evernote, the brain-expanding memory and note tool, is making full use of the iPhone 3.0 features with a new version that makes reading, synchronising, mapping, recording, photo-capturing and landscape-viewing your notes easier, and promises app interactivity to come.

All of the Evernote 3.0 app’s features are available to all iPhone and iPod touch owners, as the majority involve code optimisations and fixes for convenience. There’s no more concern about “pending” notes, or having to hit the “Load 25 More” placeholder when scrolling through, for instance. Evernote 3.0 instantly synchronizes info and thumbnails about your notes, leaving the full load for when you pull them up.

The app also removes a few of the button taps necessary to capture and tag an image or record an audio memo. Turn any device sideways, and you get a landscape timeline view for browsing through everything you’ve recorded lately to your web brain. If you’ve got notes spread over an entire city, or maybe a state or country, Evernote offers a built-in mashup showing your captures across the land.

There’s a lot more explained at the Evernote blog linked below, and in this brief video explainer:

Evernote 3.0 is a free download for iPhones and iPod touch models running the 3.0 software. If you’re an Evernote fan who’s digging on the new features, tell us how you use them to your memory-expanding advantage in the comments.
