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.
It's very easy to complain as a user about how Evernote should have had this basic functionality down in the first place – but Evernote does so much more than other note apps by also storing images, PDFs, voice clips (and files for Premium users). So this slip-up was easy to look past – and very easy to forgive now that it has been properly addressed.
I still don't feel that I can trust Evernote as a primary writing app because I've had too many instances where my text formatting has been ruined; but as a long-term storage spot for little notes and images, nothing beats Evernote.
