The ever popular note taking service Evernote pushed out an update this week which adds a number of features to their Android app.

In addition to the usual bug fixes and tweaks, the app now offers a new widget which you install on the home screen of your Android tablet or smartphone. As you can see from the screen shot at right, the widget offers a shortcut to the app which makes it easier for you to quickly start a new note.

This update also adds a simplified and improved note editor toolbar, making it easier to type in more complex notes, as well as a redesigned menu bar which will now show different icons based on your current activity, location in the app, and other context details.

You can find the app in Google Play.
