A blog about Evernote 5 revealed that the design team had one goal in mind: "make all major functions accessible within two taps."Achieving that goal took the designers months to develop a new interface that "would fit the needs of our users," according to the blog. Evernote's Web site offers a look at the latest version and a how-to guide for people new to the program. I've used Evernote on and off in the past. But for some reason, I never stuck with it consistently. After trying out the new version today, I think it's time to add it back to my home screen.
Version 5 of the notetaking app for the iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch offers a new home screen with quicker access to key features, iPhone and iPad owners who use Evernote will find tasks easier and quicker to perform in the latest version, Out today, Evernote 5 for iOS kicks off with a revamped home screen, $5 iphone cases Acting as a virtual file folder, the new screen provides one-tap access to key areas, such as Places, Tags, Notebooks, and All Notes, Using the Quick Note buttons at the top of the screen, you can create a new note, snap a photo, or scan a physical document with your device's camera..
The mystery mobile, codenamed 'Yuga' (the name of an epoch or era within a cycle of four ages in Hindu philosophy -- thanks, Wikipedia) has showed itself in a series of snaps on German-language site Android-Schweiz. It's always wise to take unconfirmed leaks with a pinch of salt, though the Yuga certainly looks to feature Sony's familiar squarish design. It also looks to sport a prominent power button on its left flank. The 5-inch screen is described as "full HD", which likely means a 1080p resolution -- a pixel count backed up by benchmark results that leaked last month.
On the inside, meanwhile, the Yuga is reckoned to feature a quad-core processor clocked at 1.5GHz and 2GB of RAM, and be powered by Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, The battery appears to be non-removable, but it apparently plays host $5 iphone cases to a microSD card slot, Put all that together, and it looks as though Sony could finally be bringing out the big guns in the smart phone war, The PlayStation-crafting firm's current flagship -- the Bond-bedazzling Xperia T -- is a decent mobile, but doesn't measure up to the likes of the Samsung Galaxy S3 or the HTC One X, Or the iPhone 5 or Google Nexus 4 for that matter, Or the Nokia Lumia 920, You get the idea..
An enormous 5-inch screen with a proper HD display, a mega-powerful processor and a recent version of Android sounds much more likely to tickle my gadget fancy. Here's hoping Sony can get the mysterious Yuga into shops as soon as possible -- I'd wager we'll see this phone making its debut at the CES trade show in January, or possibly at Mobile World Congress in February. What does Sony need in order to steal the smart phone crown? Tell me in the comments or on our Facebook wall. Image credit: Android-Schweiz.
