Evernote announced the details in their blog post today.
The big news is an updated camera. Now you can take several photos at one time for inclusion into a single Note.
Also, there is a new camera mode, Page Mode. It lets you put photos of documents into Evernote easier.
Evernote describes it :
Just align the page with the on-screen rectangle and take the photo. The app will find the edges of the page, remove any shadows and improve the contrast, so you’ll have a perfect copy in Evernote.This works well too with their Smart Notebook by Moleskin. With special Moleskin notebooks, your written word can end up in Evernote quickly and accurately.
I have to admit, this kind of feature does not excite me much. I hate writing anything by hand. But that's just me.
Exciting though is Shortcuts. Now when you touch the right hand part of the screen and swipe to the left, a Shortcuts page appears. If you long touch any Note, you get the option to add it to the Shortcuts page.
People have long asked for the ability to Star a Note, like Google lets you Star Gmail messages, or documents in Drive etc. In my book, Get Productive Fast with Evernote, I've suggested having a tag "Starred" that you add to important Notes and then a Saved Search for Notes with the tag "Starred" And on my phone, I've added a desktop shortcut for Starred Notes too.
Shortcuts in Evernote 5 does away for this workaround.
