Evernote 2.0 for Mac has officially come out of beta and adds many major new features already found in the Windows version, which was updated earlier this month. These include notebook sharing and stacks, a redesigned user interface and some other minor updates.
The biggest new feature in Evernote 2.0 is notebook sharing: this feature is already present in both the Windows application and through the Evernote website when logged on through the browser, so will be a welcome addition to those Mac users frustrated at having to switch everytime they want to share notebooks. This manifests itself in the left-hand panel of the Evernote application, which is now split into two sections for the user’s own notebooks plus a section for shared notebooks. Premium account holders can edit shared notebooks, and this functionality is accessible through the Mac application.
The other major feature is notebook stacking, which allows notebooks to be grouped in stacks for organisation purposes. These stacks are synchronised to your account, and will show up in other versions of Evernote that also support notebook stacking, such as Evernote 4.1 for Windows.
The left-hand panel has also been redesigned in Evernote 2.0 to reflect the growing number of notebooks and stacks – now sections can be minimised and resized by drag and drop.
Other minor updates include an easy-access Attachment button on the note toolbar for attaching files to notes, plus the program now supports up to 250 notebooks and comes with a getting started guide, which is accessible from the Help menu.
Evernote 2.0 for Mac is a free download and available now.
