We’re happy to announce our latest update for Notebook, and it’s a doozy. We filed your suggestions, imported some ingenuity, and have extended Notebook in some interesting ways.
You can now add and sync PDFs, documents, spreadsheets, and more to Notebook with the brand new File Card; clip the web on Safari; import from Evernote via our mobile or Mac apps, and much more.
Introducing File Card: Add PDFs, documents, spreadsheets, and more
This was one of the most requested features. You can now add and sync PDFs, documents, spreadsheets, and more to Notebook. Files can be added from any online or offline storage app. All files added to Notebook are treated as distinct, groupable note cards, rather than mere attachments.
When you add files to Notebook, you’ll be able to open them in Zoho Docs, Zoho’s document management application, available on the web and mobile. Simply go to your pre-made Notebook folder, and voilà, there they are. Your files can even be synced to your desktop through Zoho Docs Sync, giving you multiple ways to access your files.
BTW, all Notebook accounts include Zoho Docs, as well as Zoho’s online office suite. =]
Notebook Web Clipper: Now available for Safari
It’s the same, notable Web Clipper, now available for Safari. Whether you’ve found a new recipe to try or a new place to visit, clip text, images, or links into a note card, then save to a specific notebook. Need to save an article for future reference? With Clean View, you can save the entire article as a note card, minus the ads. Want to grab a screenshot of a web page? The ‘Screenshot’ option quickly saves screenshots as a Photo Card. You can even create a note from scratch, including the option to drag images from your desktop into a note.

We’ll continue to roll out extensions for other browsers.
Import from Evernote: Import all your notes and attachments from Evernote
Another highly requested feature has been an import from Evernote tool — gee, we wonder why. Jokes aside, we know moving sucks so we’ve made the process as painless as possible. You can import all your notes and attachments to Notebook on mobile or Mac. Please note: if you’re importing with the Mac app you’ll need to have the Evernote Mac app, as well. If you do not have the Evernote Mac app, import your notes via mobile. If you have attachments in Evernote they’ll be imported pre-grouped with the relevant note.
Notable Improvements for iPad Pro and Apple Pencil
Need to take notes while browsing on your iPad Pro? Now you can. Notebook now supports Split View so you can jot notes, record audio, sketch ideas, and add files, all from within the Split View. We think the Apple Pencil is a fantastic stylus, so we’ve improved our palm detection and given you the option to use your finger as an eraser when you’re using yours.
More for Mac: Introducing Menu Bar Support
Take text and audio notes, and add photos, screenshots, and checklists, all from the Menu bar. Do it all without even needing to launch the Notebook app.

A Few More Things
We’ve made some enhancements to take Notebook’s sync to the next level. The Checklist Card now displays more for each checklist item. And note card creation shortcuts can be arranged based on a user’s preference.
We hope you enjoy the update. Feel free to give your feedback. If you enjoy Notebook, send a tweet out, which you can do from the app, even. You can aways leave a nice review in the App Store or Play Store as well.
You’ll be happy to know that our next release will include the Notebook web app. We’re working hard to get it out as soon as possible.
