One of the most popular note taking (and so much more) apps for Android, Evernote, recently was updated to version 7.0 for Android phones. A few weeks have passed and Evernote is now rolling out the same version update to Android tablets.
The list of improvements includes Material Design visual changes from the latest Android 5 Lollipop, a new tablet quick notes option that is available on every screen within the app, improved tablet note editor and note view, the typical smattering of bug fixes and more.

You should note the new slimmed down navigation bar to the left which lets people easily switch between accounts and inboxes at the bottom left of the page, and the excellent full-screen mode for composing emails and viewing messages.

Notes created on phones and tablets will have location data, and some notes created on desktop machines. This could be handy if you’re a spatial thinker and find that you can only remember what you jotted down when you think of where you were at the time.
The company has also added “dramatically improved search” to Evernote 5, with type-ahead, and the ability to search shared notebooks, as well as save frequent [...]
The 10-inch Iconia A3 features a 1280 x 800 resolution display, a quad-core 1.2GHz A7 processor, a 5MP camera and connections for micro SD and a micro HDMI port. It runs Android 4.2.
There’s even Dolby Digital Plus speakers as well as Intellispin, a new feature which can apparently tell which way you’re viewing the tablet even if it is lying down on a table.
