Evernote for iPhone and iPad has been updated with a fancy new mode that allows users to scan in business cards using their device’s camera and automatically converts the data to an editable contact card. The feature is only available to Evernote Premium users. The cards can also pull data from social networks and optionally email your contact information to the newly-added contact automatically.
Also for premium users, a new output mode for presentations that allows AirPort or cable-out connections to display notes from within the app on an external display.
Free users aren’t left out with the new update, though. Everyone will benefit from a new button that creates a duplicate of an existing note. You can also earn rewards such as a premium account by referring friends to the Evernote application. Finally, a sync button as been added to the main screen to facilitate quicker manual syncs.
Evernote for iOS is free on the App Store.
