When Evernote announced it'd stop selling notebooks and socks earlier this year, the company said it was doing so to make its core note-taking app the best it could be. Perhaps the new version of its Windows app is the first evidence of that. It's a streamlined, cleaner approach with refinements addressing the sidebar's design and functionality in addition to quick separation between work and personal notebooks. The former will even shrink for when you need more screen real estate for working. Overall, it doesn't look quite as minimal as the Web interface, though; the desktop app has its own identity.
