Evernote for Android updated with Chromebook-optimized user interface

For the past many years, Google has made a big push to get developers to optimize their apps for large screens, including Chrome OS. The latest example shows Evernote updating its Android app for Chromebooks.

Evernote says the Android app is now “tailored for Chromebook users.” It specifically highlights an enhanced “Evernote Home” layout that shows various maps (notes, tasks, calendar, needles, etc.) arranged across three columns in landscape, white, there are only two in portrait orientation. The mobile app has only one and is analogous to Google Keep.

There is a cover image that welcomes you upstairs, while the bottom app bar (drawer and search) has a centered oval, floating action button (FAB) that has a green theme. By comparison, desktop clients have a page navigation tray.

The company also presents improved menus that are cleaner and faster to access as part of the “more intuitive layout.” Evernote, with version 10.0, was rebuilt in late 2020. Earlier this year, Evernote optimized its Android app for larger screens, and the Chromebook update continues that work. It also introduced new widgets in February so you can see tasks, shortcuts and notes on your home screen.

Evernote, which is a more comprehensive app than Keep, says the Chromebook update has now been rolled out to the Play Store, where version 10.30.1 is the latest build. On Chrome OS, of course, the website remains accessible.
