Mac version gains keyboard shortcuts, web client also updated

Evernote has updated its self-titled cloud-based note and capture program for the Mac to version 3.3, adding a new Premium user feature, new keyboard commands, new user controls and the addition of optional LinkedIn sharing. The web version has also been given the LinkedIn support along with a new slideshow option for picture-oriented posts. The Mac App Store version also incorporates both the recent Activity Stream feature as well as Retina display support.

Premium Account users in Evernote for Mac now have "account switching," being able to switch between a free account and premium ones without signing out of either. Users must first "add" the accounts using the application menu, but once set up lets users switch between accounts using a keyboard command (cmd-ctl-a) quickly. After the initial opening of an account, users won't be re-asked for the password, though they continue to have the option of signing out of an account, which can be useful on shared computers.

In addition, the Mac app adds two new keyboard shortcuts: cmd-ctl-k for "strikethroughs" in text and cmd-shift-d for inserting a date or title into the body of a note. Additional features include being able to turn lines into checkboxes and click through the Activity Stream more easily. The List view now has a tag column, and stability has been improved in the app for both Snow Leopard and Mountain Lion. The Mac App Store version of Evernote also complies with the new sandboxing requirements.

The program and service continue to be free, with basic account users having limits on storage and bandwidth for sending, receiving and sharing notes. Most features are identical, but Premium Accounts (available for $5 per month or $45 per year) offer larger uploads, faster image recognition, PDF search, offline notebooks in the iOS and Android companion apps, a note history and other options.
