The old Android widget for Evernote was an entirely separate app that was “clunky to install and use”. In contrast, the new widget is simple and has a streamlined functionality as it is baked into Evernote app hence you don’t have to download a separate app. You can now select three types of widgets from the homescreen such as Actions, Action Bar, and List. The Action widget (1×1) gives you quick access to a note, the camera, or search while the Action bar (4×1) allows you to select from 11 different actions to create your personal best-of-Evernote functions and finally the List widget (4×2) offers shortcuts to key actions of your choice as well as a list of notes. The Evernote app also gets simple notes that lets you jot down quick text notes without opening the app
