We recently saw the teaser video showing Evernote 5 for the Mac. And well, as of today Evernote 5 is available for download. Evernote version 5.0.0 for the Mac can be downloaded from the Mac App Store and as it was in the past — it remains available for free. Of course, those looking for the power user experience, there is a Premium service level available. That aside though, lets get into the important part — the new feature that come along with version 5. According to the folks at Evernote, there are over 100 new features. Some of the highlights include the Left Sidebar, Browsing and Creating Notes, Smarter Search and Collaboration. Breaking these down a bit further and we have the following;
