Evernote for Android Brings Support for Handwritten Notes

Sometimes there’s no other finer way to capture an idea than to jot down or delineate it. Whether an equation from your class, a graph from an important meeting, or even an inspiration while you are traveling, handwriting can be the best way to express what you are seeing or thinking. Thanks to the latest version of Evernote for Android, which brings support for ‘Handwriting’.


There’s no need of a paper and a pen, you can now take out your android device and immediately write down jottings using the stylus or your finger with new Evernote app.

Within your notes, the app will now display a pen icon on the top right hand side. If you select that, you will encounter a spotted canvas on the screen and you can start jotting down drawing something immediately, in the same way as you would do in a paper-based notebook. For this, you will have 4 colors and 3 thickness options to pick from, including an eraser to erase mistakes as well as hiding awkward doodles.

With the help of a couple of arrows available at the top and the bottom of the screen, you will be able to quickly edit multiple sections and request for an additional paper if necessary. Interestingly, the app also provides you the ability to weave handwriting into other type of notes. So when you need to include a chart, audio recording, or an image, you can close the dotted canvas and add all of them as normal underneath.

In a recent blog post, the company has said that if you are in your chemistry class, you should be able to type and feed everything that your teacher says, then accurately draw a chemical structure, then write some more, all while you are capturing the audio from the lecture. These are not different ideas, they should all stay together, the company adds.

Besides handwriting feature, the update also includes upgraded note editor and camera features. Firstly, the enhanced note editor will now handle the notes much better, which you create on different platforms. You also have a new highlighting functionality that allows you to include emphasis to your notes. There’s also a facility to duplicate your notes and develop links to seamlessly jump from one note to the other.

Secondly, the camera is now pretty faster than before, virtually wiping out the lag that users were experiencing before. Moreover, focus and autofocus options have also been upgraded. Additionally, the revamp also includes a number of bug fixes.
