Evernote for iOS update brings increased customization and speed boost

The folks at Evernote have rolled out another update for its iOS app, giving iPad and iPhone users a few new perks in addition to a speed boost, improvements to its business card-scanning abilities, and quite a few bug fixes, including the bothersome corrupted audio notes issue that vexed some users.

Perhaps the most substantial part of the update is the increased customization ability, which allows iOS users to switch up their homescreen with one of three different color themes — light, dark, and classic green. The New Note buttons have been moved to the top of the screen, as well.

Sections can be hidden and rearranged, and recently viewed items can be displayed for things in Notes, Shortcuts, Notebooks, and Tags. This makes it easier to jump into recent projects and find what you need right from the start. There's also now a sync status that offers sync monitoring below the Settings gear.

Rounding it all out, as mentioned, is improvements to the app's business card scanning feature, which allows for direct scanning to handset contact's and an increase in quality. Many bugs have been "stomped", as well, aside from the aforementioned audio corruption issue, most of which weren't detailed.
