Evernote 4.3 Adds Tap To Edit

Evernote 4.3 for iPhone and iPad was released on the App Store and it brings with it one of the most significant little features to ever have hit Evernote: tap to edit. Up until this most recent version, Evernote notes have always been a little bit more of a pain to edit than notes in any other app. Evernote used to make a major distinction between viewing and editing – so much so that there was actually an “edit” button in the bottom toolbar – but that is no longer the case. You can now just tap in the body area of a note and the keyboard will pop right up, with the cursor appearing roughly around where you tapped.

So this slip-up was easy to look past – and very easy to forgive now that it has been properly addressed.
