Evernote for Android Released
This is making a lot of Android users happy today. Evernote, the app that wants to be your brain when it comes to remembering things, has been released. You can get it for your Android phone here. I’m currently not an Android user so I can’t check this out, but I know Rob Bushway has been looking forward to this, so maybe he’ll leave a comment as to how well it works. If anyone else running an Android device checks this out, make sure you report in and let us know what you think.
As usual, you’ll be able to create text, picture, or voice notes, and then sync them up to your Evernote cloud. They will then be available on any device should you download the Evernote client for that device, or available on the web service. Of course the reverse is true and you can view Evernote notes captured on other devices on your phone as well.

I’ve been running the beta version for a few weeks. It works quite well and am very pleased with it. Couple of notes / bugs:
1) does not support offline / favorite notes like the iPhone version does
2) current version has trouble opening .doc files that are embedded, and I have Docs To Go installed so it should either open the .doc natively or give me a choice. iPhone version opens it natively.
3) search works great but does not utilize the search button that is a standard feature of all android phones

4) they should hook into Android’s Share feature to automatically send to Evernote. Android’s Share is powerful. Share shows up in Gallery, web pages and other apps. Twidroid hooks in quite nicely. Evernote should do the same.

The Release Candidate 4 that I have installed right now is hooked into the Android share function and works great on my Moto Droid. Are you using an earlier Android device and it’s not there?

Doesn’t seem to want to install on my Cliq (Android 1.5), possibly needs 1.6 or higher
