Evernote update intros Shortcuts
Evernote has pushed out an update for the iOS version of its popular note-taking app. Version 5.4 introduces Shortcuts, a rebranding of the Favorites feature from the iPhone, which gives users a method to quickly access important notes, notebooks and tags. These Shortcuts can be synced across all versions of Evernote, and can even be made for saved searches. Other changes include support for marking up images, PDFs and notes, the ability to see recently viewed notes along the bottom of any note, and a new Announcements section with the latest news from Evernote.
Rovio cross-platform syncing service now in Angry Birds and The Croods
Following an initial testing phase, Rovio has now made its game syncing feature available globally for both iOS and Android. Currently compatible with two titles, the original Angry Birds and The Croods, the new service lets players sync progress across multiple devices with a linked Rovio account. This includes the ability to sync a game from iOS to Android. A Rovio account can be created by launching either supported title and signing up with an e-mail address.
