Evernote now adds context to your memos on Android and Windows


Evernote’s bringing Context, one of its more interesting announcements during its fourth conference in October, to Android and Windows. This feature, which was first made available to iOS and Mac users in November, pulls content (based on what you’re typing, hence its name) from various sources and displays them on screen. By “various sources,” we mean your old notes, your co-workers’ notes and a handful of websites, which includes The Wall Street Journal, Fast Company and TechCrunch — just click on an entry inside the Context panel to read it.

Some people expressed concerns about Evernote being able to “see” what you type the first time this feature went out. But like before, the company has assured users in its announcement post that it does “not share any information about you or your account with any publisher.” Also, you can switch off all online sources via the Settings page. It’sstill only available for Premium and Business subscribers, though, so those who’d rather not pay for the service will have to Google terms the “old-fashioned” way.
