Evernote Adds App Store-like “Trunk”
You are using Evernote, right? We’ll likely be putting up a new how-to guide for using the great note-taking, file-storing, image-reading application in the near future, but in the meantime just thought we’d pass along news of their newest update. Out today, Evernote’s update tweaked a few UI elements in the desktop apps, but the biggest addition is a brand new “Trunk” feature.
The Trunk is essentially an app store, showing off a number of applications and hardware for all platforms that play nice with Evernote. At this point it acts more as a catalog than a real app store, as functionality is limited to linking to the various services, but Evernote CEO Phil Libin said that this will change in the future. Soon, users will be able to add services directly to their Evernote client, rather than installing tons of different apps that interface with the service.
The most interesting addition to the service that Libin hinted at is the addition of memory games sold through the Trunk. It may sound a little juvenile, but I wouldn’t hesitate to pay for the ability to, say, automatically turn my class notes into digital flash cards.
Do you use Evernote in school? How do you think the Trunk will change the experience for you? Let us know in the comments.
