Evernote had released a new update for its Mac app that brings stunning Retina graphics and a new feature called Activity Stream. Version 3.2 of Evernote for Mac is available now on the web and soon in the Mac App Store.
The new Activity Stream acts as a notification hub for your Evernote account that is automatically updated within the Mac app. This latest update from Evernote also includes a few other improvements.
“Our design team has been hard at work upgrading every button, texture, shadow, and image inside of Evernote for Mac to look sharp and beautiful on the new drool-worthy MacBook Retina displays,” said Andrew Sinkov of Evernote.
Evernote’s new Activity Stream in action.
A new satellite dish icon in the Mac app shows what’s going on with the notebooks you share and have access to. Evernote is heavily used as a tool for wireless collaboration, and Activity Stream gives you the ability to see updates as they happen. Evernote accounts you work with, new edits, syncs, etc. are all visible from the new drop-down window. New notifications add a badge count to the Activity Stream icon.
“It’s important to keep in mind that the Activity View displays the most recent change that has occurred since the last time Evernote synched,” notes Sinkov. ”This means that if you have a note which was updated 10 times since the last sync, only the most recent change will appear in the Activity View.”
Notebooks that are joined to your Mac will now be automatically synced. The update also includes a “host of bug fixes and improvements, including more reliable sync, faster sharing and a number of stability enhancements.”
Evernote for Mac 3.2 is available now on the web, and the update should be in the Mac App Store soon. Evernote has provided instructions for switching the free Mac App Store version of the app to the web version for those interested.
