Evernote 3.1 adds account switching, new Card View

Somewhere around 9 o’clock most evenings you will find me in my La-Z-Boy — a re-apolstered ’50s original that weighs about a quarter ton — kicked back and tasting news on my iPad. My go to apps are Zite, Pulse and Flipboard. But behind the scenes glue that gets the news from iPad to Mac is Evernote, which collects and syncs text, links, images and pretty much whatever I choose to dump in there.

Different strokes for different folks, but Evernote’s better than a bookmarking service, such as Delicious, and more tightly aligned with my needs than Dropbox. Really good stuff.

That said, Evernote 3.1 (MAS download) is now available and comes to market with following features and fixes:

• Support for switching between accounts
• New Card View beautifully displays note thumbnails
• Word count and character count added to the note info “i” popup
• MultiSelect view highlights common functionality when selecting multiple notes.
• Redesigned account info screen allows you to:
• Add Evernote email address to Address Book with one click
• Easily save all attachments from a note or group of notes into a folder on your computer
• New keyboard shortcuts to insert date and time into the note body
• Print notes with header information using the Print screen
• Pressing Return in the search field now re-executes the current search
• Significant improvements and fixes to bulleted and numbered list functions
• Smoother fullscreen animation on Mac OS X 10.7
• And, bug fixes

To make account switching real on your iPhone or iPad, you will need to update to Evernote 4.1, which is available on the App Store.

I use Evernote most days and have yet to bump up against 60MB monthly data cap — you mileage may vary.
