What best describes you?

Workspace app Evernote has announced two work-focused features coming to its applications this spring: Context and Work Chat.

Evernote builds apps and products that works across multiple devices, and the announcement of the new featrues sees the application become more than a note-taker.

While introducing Context, the company also announced a partnership with Dow Jones that will allow contextually relevant content from the Wall Street Journal and the Factiva media service to be displayed within Evernote.

“Most of the software and apps we use for work today are based on metaphors that were created decades ago. It’s time to move on from those dated concepts,” said Evernote’s chief executive officer Phil Libin.

“Evernote represents a significant leap forward in workplace productivity software. With it, your work is created collaboratively and in the context of a wealth of knowledge. You’ll never work in a vacuum again.”

Among several announcements made at the opening keynote of the fourth annual Evernote Conference in San Francisco, Evernote detailed the new Context and Work Chat features, both slated to launch in 2014:

Context features:

Context displays information immediately relevant to work as it’s being done in Evernote. The new feature dynamically shows related past work, information a colleague may have on the topic, and soon, contextually relevant, recent articles from outlets and services such as The Wall Street Journal, Fast Company, TechCrunch, CrunchBase, Inc. Magazine, LinkedIn, and others. For teams using Evernote business, content from Factiva, the Dow Jones premium media aggregation service, will also be displayed.

Context is expected to launch on all major Evernote platforms (Android, iOS, Mac OS, and Windows) this year.

Work Chat features:

Work Chat will enable quick and effective sharing, communication, and collaboration between individuals and teams. By eliminating the need to leave what an individual is working on to email or use an instant messaging client, Work Chat lets Evernote users share thoughts, ideas, references, and resources instantly without experiencing an interruption to their workflow.

Messages, notes, and notebooks are shared directly in Work Chat, so reference materials are simple to open and respond to. Work Chat will be supported on Android, iOS, Mac OS, and Windows and will be available in late 2014.

New Scannable App – Evernote also announced Scannable, a new stand-alone iOS application that makes transforming paper to digital using the camera on your phone or the ScanSnap Evernote Edition scanner a one-tap experience.

The company also announced a redesigned Penultimate handwriting app, a fully re-imagined web client, enhanced presentation mode features, and several new physical products for the Evernote Market. The Evernote Blog has full details of all the announcements made today at the Evernote Conference. The conference continues at Fort Mason in San Francisco through the end of the day Friday.
