Evernote for Android updates, 1 year premium service free for Deutsche Telekom users

Big news on the Evernote front today. The popular note-taking app received a hefty update on Android, and the company also announced a partnership with European wireless carrier Deutsche Telekom that would see all of the carrier's customers eligible for one year of Evernote Premium for free, which is a 40-euro value (approximately $52).

If you're a mobile, landline, or broadband customer with Deutsche Telekom, you can enjoy a full year of premium service with Evernote, which comes with a handful of exclusive features, including more bandwidth to upload various notes and more-comprehensive note history and sharing features. Furthermore, current Evernote Premium users can tack on that free year to their account easily.

The offer officially begins today and runs through September 25, 2014. That's right, you have until late next year to become a Deutsche Telekom subscriber and take advantage of your one free year of Evernote Premium — more than enough time to let your current contract with another provider run its course so that you can switch over.

Sadly, it doesn't look like T-Mobile users in the US can take advantage of the offer (since T-Mobile is owned by Deutsche Telekom), and it seems only European customers have access to the deal. As for the update to Android, it's more up to tune with the iOS version, bringing better camera features and a redesigned user interface, making it easier to sift through notes and create new ones. The update is available now in the Google Play store.
