The update also includes a number of more minor additions:
A slew of UI tweaks and keyboard shortcuts have been added, and there’s now the ability to post a note to LinkedIn from the app. Evernote’s blog points out that Evernote 3.3 from the Mac App Store complies with Mountain Lion’s sandboxing rules, and “it is possible that users on older versions of Mac OS X will experience changes in functionality.”

Evernote reports hack attack, tells users to reset passwords
Evernote, which makes business and consumer productivity software for things like taking notes and doing research, is forcing all of its 50 million users to change their passwords after detecting a hacker intrusion on its systems.
The attacker gained access to Evernote accounts’ usernames, email addresses, and passwords. Although passwords are encrypted, the company “in an abundance of caution” is implementing a password reset, the company said in a blog post on Sunday.
There is no evidence that the malicious hackers accessed user content nor that they obtained customers’ payment information, according to the company.
‘Coordinated’ attack reported
The network “suspicious activity” that Evernote detected and blocked was an apparent “coordinated attempt” to break into secure areas of its service, Evernote said in the post.
“After signing in, you will be prompted to enter your new password. Once you have reset your password on evernote.com, you will need to enter this new password in other Evernote apps that you use. We are also releasing updates to several of our apps to make the password change process easier, so please check for updates over the next several hours,” reads Evernote’s blog post.
Evernote is the latest victim in a recent string of hacking incidents against high-profile technology companies, including Microsoft, Apple, Twitter, and Facebook.
Evernote makes free and fee-based applications that can be accessed via web browsers, mobile devices, and desktop computers.
Evernote Reminders Now Available On Mac, iOS & The Web
Evernote has today rolled out a new Reminders service to its clients on the Mac, iOS, and the web. The new service rolls three of Evernote’s most-requested features into one, delivering in-app and email alarms, quick note-based to-do lists, and the ability to pin notes to the top of your note list.
You can use Reminders by clicking on the alarm icon located at the top of a note on Mac and the web, or at the bottom of a note on your iPhone or iPad. You can then set a time and date for when you’d like to complete the note, or when you’d just like to be reminded of it.
When the time comes, Evernote will present you with an in-app alarm, as well as an optional email the day the Reminder is due. You’ll also be able to see all of your Reminders together within the new Reminders section at the top of your notes list.
You can change the order of Reminders in this section simply by dragging them up and down the list. When they’re complete, simply tap the check box, or, on iOS, swipe the Reminder away. Completed Reminders are removed from the list automatically.
To make Reminders even more powerful, and to keep them neatly organized, Evernote has made them notebook-specific. So when you add a Reminder inside one notebook, you’ll only see it inside of that notebook — not inside others.
You can see them all together inside the “All Notes” view, however.
Just like notes, Evernote syncs Reminders across all of your devices — though initially Reminders will only sync to other devices that support the new feature. Those created on your iPad won’t show up in the Windows app, or on an Android-powered device, then.
Evernote encourages you to use Reminders for remembering birthday gifts, project planning, vacation packing, and for remembering appointments.
To find out more about Evernote Reminders,, or check out the trailer at the bottom of this post. And if you don’t already have Evernote, you can download it now — for free — from the App Store and the Mac App Store.
Evernote For Mac Gets Document Previews, Skitch Support and Text Highlights
Evernote for Mac has gotten quite a big feature boost Not only does it now integrate Skitch, it lets you highlight text files and view files inside the note editor.
The most immediately useful addition is this one: “View your Office and iWork documents directly in the note editor.” This lets you do just that. Instead of just showing an icon that you need to click on to Quick Look, the file just shows up as it should, as a file. Just like the Finder has done for years. Amazingly, it only took the folks at Evernote until 2013 to add this – I guess they were busy making the iOS app harder to use.
Highlighting is what you’d expect: you can select text and hit the new pen button in the Evernote toolbar to add a pale yellow highlight.
And finally, if you have Skitch installed on your Mac you can quickly round-trip documents to add all of Skitch’s trademark markups. Note: PDFs will be crunched inot a new file for this to happen.
I like the promise of Evernote: all your files together, always. And I really love the fact that I can snap a picture of something and the text within it will be index and rendered searchable. But the apps are just so slow, bloated and horrible to use I’m always looking for somehting new. There’s actually a new alternative called NoteSuite, but as the developer refuses to make it available to download outside of English-speaking countries (because there are absolutely no English speakers in places like Spain or Germany) then I can’t even test it out for you, dear reader.
So, grab this update and if you have any suggestions for alternative places I can keep my PDFs and boarding passes, let my know via e-mail or Twitter: @mistercharlie or email@example.com.
