- Evernote was updated this past November to take advantage of the new user experience Apple created for OS X Yosemite. The developers also used the new release to introduce other new features like easily resizable tables and images, redesigned interface elements and more.
Evernote this afternoon has released a major update to its OS X desktop app, making both major design enhancements for Yosemite and under-the-hood performance improvements. The update, which the company says is a total rewrite of the app, adds an entirely redesigned interface with a new, lighter color scheme, as well as new icons.
At Evernote, we believe that speed and stability are essential for productivity. That’s why we’ve completely rewritten Evernote for Mac. Everenote is significantly faster, more reliable and consumes less energy than ever before. We’ve also added a number of new features!
So OS X 10.10, called Yosemite, is out. Whenever a new release of an operating system (Mac or Windows) is released, there is always that nervous period where you try to figure out if there are any glitches with the software and hardware that you are currently using. I will probably be installing Yosemite this.
In addition to the design improvements, Evernote also touts a variety of new features.
Evernote Corporation has released major updates across its four biggest platforms with Evernote for Mac 6.0, Evernote for Windows 5.7.2, Evernote for iOS 7.6.2 and Evernote for Android 6.2.
All four platforms roll out a new collaborative feature named Work Chat, while Evernote for Mac 6 also unveils a new Yosemite-friendly redesign. Evernote Premium users also gain a new business card scanning feature in Evernote for Android.

The headline new feature has appeared over the past few days across all platforms. Work Chat is a tool for providing real-time collaborative and sharing features, using the platform’s existing contacts list as a starting point for finding users to work with.
Work Chat now makes it possible to quickly share notes and notebooks within the Evernote for Mac app, and users gain the ability to set view or edit permissions when choosing to share individual notes.
The feature also comes with a built-in chat tool, accessed via the clearly labeled Work Chat button found at the top of the navigation sidebar. This allows users to chat with both individuals and groups about things they’re working on.
When selected, users pick the name of other users and then simply start chatting using a traditional text-based messaging system, similar to Skype. The screen is split into two: on the left are the people taking part in the chat, and on the right is the chat history window.
As part of this new feature, users are now made aware of when other Evernote users are viewing or editing notes in their account, making it easy to start chats. Users can also filter chats to find specific information using the 'Search for people or messages' box at the top of the chat screen.
Evernote for Android users also gain Business Card Scanning, but only if they’re holders of the paid-for Evernote Premium account. This feature scans in business cards, and then automatically turn them into detailed contacts for storing in Evernote, complete with profile photos and the ability to connect via LinkedIn.
Evernote for Mac 6.0.1 also comes with a UI revamp described by Evernote as a 'sleek new design inspired by OS X 10.10 Yosemite'. It sees the app adopt a flatter, more streamlined look with icons simplified and modeled on the latest iteration of OS X.

The Mac app also also comes with three specific bug fixes: improved handling of long URLs, the restoration of the Rename PDF menu item and a fix for a crash that occurs on launch. The Windows build, meanwhile, gets a number of bug fixes, concentrating on preventing app freezes and crashes as well as sync errors.
