There’s no better way to call out important elements inside reports, research and product manuals.”

Another feature for Evernote Premium users is the ability to customize the home screen and hide things you may not need frequent access to, such as the “Explore Evernote” tutorial popup, the Market, and Skitch notes.

For all users — free and Premium — there are improvements to the notebook picker. Most recently used notebooks now appear at the top of the list, and you can choose whether or not you want to see Business notebooks at all. This is ideal for those who like to avoid work as much as possible when they’re on vacation.

Finally, this update promises to make Evernote “more stable and responsive.” You can download it now from Google Play.
