This means that while you type notes you can simultaneously record a lecture, just in case your aren’t as quick on a touch screen keyboard. Users also have access to the same sort of text tools you’d expect from a basic word processor, such as boldness, underlining, and alignment.

This chronological look into your notebooks is not only very easy to access and use, it adds much needed organization to the Evernote system.  Simply tap a given date and you can review everything learned from that day.
