Face to face in the news:
2018 - Zoho Notebook adds business card scanning, deep search, favoriting
Zoho announced latest Notebook update. While it already could capture images and scan documents, now it also allows to scan business cards, as well. To do so, open the Photo Card, then toggle to the “Business Card” option. The new Deep Search allows to search for objects and text within images across your notes and notebooks, just like your text-based notes. Another new feature - Favoriting allows to put notes into a stack on the home screen, giving you the ability to create a master to-do list, or keep important notes on hand. To favorite a note, you can simply swipe one to the left, then tap the star icon. Linking notes is also simple: just tap the link option while editing a note, then select the note to which you want to link. So we may assume that Zoho Notebook becomes more functional in comparison to Evernote
2017 - Zoho Notebook 3.0 adds File Card, Web Clipper for Safari, Import from Evernote
Zoho updated its Notebook app. You can now add and sync PDFs, documents, spreadsheets, and more to Notebook with the brand new File Card. Files can be added from any online or offline storage app. All files added to Notebook are treated as distinct, groupable note cards, rather than mere attachments. When you add files to Notebook, you’ll be able to open them in Zoho Docs, Zoho’s document management application, available on the web and mobile. Besides, the Notebook Web Clipper is now available for Safari and you can import all your notes and attachments from Evernote with the new tool.
2016 - Zoho Notebook relaunched as a mobile app to challenge Evernote
Zoho restarted its Notebook as a free mobile app for iOS and Android, optimized for smartphones and tablets. It introduces the concept of ‘Note Cards’. Note Cards are built-in templates for capturing various types of content inside Notebook. The Text Card lets you capture anything in a note, while a Checklist Card lets you create, well, checklists. There’s also an Audio Card to record voice notes, and a Photo Card to snap moments. All Note Cards feature randomly generated colors that can be customized. You can group Note Cards by pinching them together, then flick a group to view them. In landscape view, Note Cards behave like magnets when you group/ungroup them; you can even collapse your notes like an accordion.
2014 - Evernote unveiled AI tool and new web interface to challenge Zoho Notebook
The most popular note-taking Evernote wants people not just keep using its app to store notes and thoughts regularly, but to use it for ever more purposes: it’s launching Evernote Context — an AI play that will see it surfacing and suggesting new content to you from third party sources as you read and write. This will mean adding a new content feed from third party sources that will appear within Evernote, alongside and relevant to the work that you are doing within the app, wether you are on desktop or another client. Also Evernote unveiled new web app that uses a lot more white space throughout the interface, leaving you with a much cleaner workspace that doesn’t draw your eye to past notes as you add new ones to the same extent as you’d fine the native desktop app.
