The most frustrating oversight in most document and note management applications available today is how inefficient it is to just get to the point where you can edit a document. In the likes of Google Drive, Evernote, and others, it takes no fewer than three clicks to get to the editor, which can be immensely frustrating when attempting to make a quick change on the fly. Okay, so it may only constitute a minor annoyance, but it’s one Evernote has decided to take seriously. A new version of Evernote’s iOS application released today reduces the number of clicks required to open the editor to two. Users must simply click on a note to open it, then tap the area of the note you want to alter and edit away. While certainly a small addition, the move makes Evernote much better in that allows you to use Evernote in the way note taking applications are meant to be used: quickly and efficiently.
No word on when the Android version of the application will receive the same enhancements, but we can only hope an update is also coming soon. The updated Evernote for iOS is now available on the App Store.
