Evernote improved its business offerings today with an update for its iOS app that affects Evernote Premium users. The Premium service, which costs US$5 a month or $45 per year, already offers improved collaboration, storage, searching and offline work options for users. Now subscribers will be able to use their iOS device to scan business cards and make presentations.

Using the iPhone or iPad camera, Premium users can scan business cards, which the app automatically turns into an editable contact note. By connecting to your LinkedIn and Address Books, you can get even better results. The app can also be set to automatically email your contact information to new contacts you add. Regular Evernote users can try this feature out for free on up to five business cards. You can preview the feature in the video at the bottom of this story.

The new presentation mode allows subscribers to present their notes to an audience either over AirPlay or via a cable. By tapping and holding on something important in a presentation, users can bring up the "laser pointer" tool to highlight it for viewers. Additionally night and day modes are available by pressing the sun or moon icons on the top-right of the screen. This feature will be available to all users for a 14-day free preview.

Finally, Evernote Business users are getting the option to access quick notes for either their personal or business accounts. A Business membership costs $10 a month.

You can find the new update in the iTunes store now.
