An update to the Evernote app has arrived alongside the release of iOS 8, with clipping, quick notes, and new notifications headlining the new features.
Users will now be able to use the web clipping feature to simply save any webpage that they're on, straight from the Share icon. This feature isn't limited to webpages however, as it also works with photos, documents, PDFs, and other parts of iOS 8. Meanwhile, by swiping down from the top of the screen and going to the notification center, users can add a quick note bar for Evernote, allowing them to start a new note straight from there.
The app also contains a couple of new features for premium users. For these users, the app now attempts to find notes related to what you're currently working on and can be locked and unlocked using Touch ID on devices that support it.
The Evernote app is available to download from the App Store for free now.

24me is available on the App Store now and is free to download.
Box, the cross-platform cloud storage solution tool, has received an update that brings the Box Notes feature to iOS devices. The feature allows for collaboration and even concurrent editing.
From the blogpost:
At its core, Box Notes is about making it easy to work with others. It promotes the sharing of information and collaboration. Live, concurrent editing lets everyone read and make changes instantly together. This is great for meetings – even when some participants aren’t in the office. And with today’s global workforce, not everyone is online and working at the same time – Box Notes is great for those situations too. Notes are automatically available to collaborators of the folder, so there’s no need to share each individual note with the people who need it.
The update also has usability fixes and improved compatibility with iWork files. Box is available for free on the App Store.
Notability has received an update, adding in some usability improvements and more.
You can find specific details below, but the biggest changes include being able to link typing, drawing, photos, and handwriting to your recorded audio clips, as well as improved navigation tools that make scrolling through text and audio a lot easier.
We had an opportunity to review the app a while back; Notability is available (on sale currently) $2.99.
Everything that you add is now linked to your audio recording -- just tap play and watch your handwriting, typing, drawings, and photos come to life. This visually rich presentation of your note provides an awesome new way to review your notes or even to create lessons or instructional notes for students or colleagues.
The new navigation tool provides an easy and powerful way to review your notes. Scroll through your notes while preventing stray marks. Or follow along with your audio and tap anywhere to jump to a specific point in your recording.
Audio recordings can also be played back at several different speeds to help you speed up review. You can also quickly rewind 10 seconds to hear an important part of the recording again.
Also, you can now select a typed word and view a definition.
