Note-taking app Evernote has released improvements for the Windows Desktop version of the product to further boost its productivity offerings.
Firstly, the firm announced an annotation feature for images, so key parts of pictures or screen grabs can be highlighted and more information provided. Andrew Sinkov, vice president of marketing, explained more in a blog post.
“If you’re like many Evernote users, then you have lots of images in your account, including webpages you clipped and photos snapped using Evernote on your phone. Now you can make these images more useful,” he said.
“Mouse over an image, and you’ll see an Annotation button appear in the top-right corner. Click it to open the Annotation Tool. From there, point something out using arrows and stamps, add text and shapes, or crop and resize. Close the window and your note updates with the annotated image.”
Sinkov said this could be used for everything from “identifying a key part of a data visualisation to mapping out your garden”. An example is shown below:
Meanwhile, the firm has also upgraded the tool's sync speed, which Sinkov said should be a major boost for Evernote Business users or individual users with large amounts of data on their Evernote account.
Sinkov also added that the overall stability and performance of the application has been improved as part of the update.
Evernote has proved hugely popular since it was launched in 2008 and the company is worth around $1bn. This popularity has brought it unwanted attention, though, as last year it was hit by hackers, forcing the company to reset user passwords.
