Ubuntu / Linux news and application reviews.

Everpad Unity

Everpad, an Evernote (note taking service) client for Linux, has reached version 2.3, getting GNOME Shell support (TopIcon extension is recommended), along with other new features and improvements.

Everpad features:
  • supports Evernote notes, tags, netbooks, resources, places
  • Unity lens with previews support
  • Ubuntu AppIndicator

The latest Everpad 2.3 should now work with GNOME Shell, however, since the GNOME Shell Message Tray is not intended for applications such as Everpad, it's recommended to use it with the TopIcon extension.

That's not all that's new in the latest Everpad 2.3. The new version also brings drag'n'drop for images and files, printing and RTL support.

Since our last post on Everpad, the application has improved a lot! For instance, Everpad works under KDE and it even comes with Krunner integration (press ALT + F2 to open Krunner, then type "create note" to quickly create a new note with Everpad, or you can search for existing notes, etc.).

There's also support for hotkeys, in note search, option to pin notes, light/dark panel icons support as well as new options to insert tables, images, checkboxes and lists in editor or change font.

Note: in my test Everpad worked under Kubuntu 12.10, but fails under Kubuntu 12.04 (I've reported the bug HERE).
