Evernote Material Design for Android Tablets
In mid-March, Evernote updated their Android app for phones with a Material Design makeover, bringing the app in-line with the latest design standards from Google. Today they’ve announced they’ve now pushed the update to Android tablets.

Evernote obviously want to keep the experience the same for users no matter what type of device you’re using. The app takes on all the flatter design elements you’ll find in the phone app, but with a larger screen available, they’ve optimised the interface to take advantage of it:

We took advantage of the larger screen real estate afforded on tablets by creating a new split toolbar that allows you to take key actions and manage more content simultaneously. The primary navigation still expands and collapses for quick access to all your content while keeping you oriented on the larger screen size.

We used the metaphor of tangible surfaces to provide depth relationships between navigation and your content. And subtle improvements to typography and alignment let us create a much cleaner interface. We’re able to offer more functionality, including an updated new note button that mirrors our Android phone app.


The update to Evernote version 7 for tablets is now available in Google Play if you’ve got it installed, you should see a prompt to update, if you’re not using Evernote you should try it out.

Which note-taking app do you use?

Dan is a die-hard Android fan. Some might even call him a lunatic. He's been an Android user since Android was a thing, and if there's a phone that's run Android, chances are he owns it (his Nexus collection is second-to-none) or has used it.

Dan's dedication to Ausdroid is without question, and he has represented us at some of the biggest international events in our industry including Google I/O, Mobile World Congress, CES and IFA.
