Evernote has released its Evernote 5 beta for Windows, allowing users to try out the productivity desktop app and its slew of new features.
The app has been redesigned with features similar to the Evernote 5 for Mac app released in November. New features include shortcuts, dedicated buttons, expanding lists, and a redesign of the note list and note editor. Users will also be able to view notes as cards and edit the metadata on notes. Premium customers get an additional feature: related notes. With this feature, Evernote will automatically pull up notes that may be related to notes you're currently editing or viewing.
Andrew Sinkov, Evernote's VP of Marketing, warns that the app may be glitchy because it's in beta, or testing, mode.
"Evernote 5 is currently in beta," he wrote in a blog post. "In fact, this is the first of several betas that we'll be releasing. Before installing it, please be sure that you're comfortable using early software. While unlikely, you may experience various issues and possibly even data loss. Also, certain features, like Reminders, are yet to be implemented."
