Evernote for Windows Phone gets refined UI, document search and more in 3.0 update

Evernote for Windows Phone adds refined UI, checkboxes, livetile shortcuts and document search in 30 update

Evernote's getting a version 3.0 overhaul for Windows Phone that updates the app with some majorly welcome improvements. Now, users that launch the note-taking app will be greeted by two UI refreshes: a simplified homescreen that gathers all your necessary tools for quick access at a glance and a more compact tag list that's easier to navigate and displays more results. The Evernote team's also added the ability to create checkboxes, group notebooks by "stacks" and pin live-tile shortcuts by long-pressing on tags, notes or notebooks; shortcuts that can be synced across various platforms (i.e., Mac, Windows Phone and Android). And for die-hard organizational freaks that pay for the premium product, the app now features document search -- useful for parsing attached MSWord, OpenOffice or iWork docs. The update's live right now, so it should hit your WP device soon. Or if you're one of the uninitiated, now's a good time to make the jump and connect your life with the cloud.
