First Evernote Beta for Mac 5.6 Available for Installation


    For six months, our team worked on a complete redesign of Evernote for Mac in all aspects of the application. We set ourselves the task of creating a faster and more stable version of Evernote for Mac. The new version also turned out to be more economical in terms of energy consumption.

    The work is not finished yet, but we are ready to offer you to try our beta version and help with the detection of errors in the application. Those who wish can install the application via the link at the end of the post.

    What's new

    In the new version, much has been improved or appeared for the first time. Below we will tell you more about all the innovations.

    • Notes can be shared without waiting for the end of synchronization.
    • Application start and close times have been significantly reduced.

    Evernote for Mac 5.6 is currently in beta status. We recommend weighing the pros and cons before installing so that you are comfortable working with the earlier version of the application. Currently, there is a small likelihood of problems in the work and, possibly, even data loss. Some features are not yet available, but they will be available very soon.
