Scanning and annotation of documents comes to Evernote for Android.

Popular note-taking app Evernote just got better on Android in that users will now be able to easily scan any documents you throw at the apps camera. The latter will automatically determine the documents size, type and calibrates to take the best pic possible. Obviously Evernote will process the image so as to keep the part that is of interest to you and that includes cropping, adjusting contrast "for a clear and crisp digital rendering." Those scanned images are then stored temporarily in the phones gallery. Evernote does not say how long the scanned images remain there, but the app will let you upload the scans you want to Evernote with a simple upward swipe and in the format you choose. And there is more.

Evernote will let you annotate your images. Users will be able to draw on the document and even add text. A feature available for some time already on competing note-taking apps, but its great to see Evernote catch up. These features are available to every users of Evernote, but if you're premium user, there's more in store for you, like the ability to scan business cards and Evernote will pull the information into a business card note and save to the app. Premium subscribers will also be able to annotate PDF files attached to notes.

It's a whole lot of features that Evernote has made available in Google Play store. Check out the full change log below:
- Many enhancements to the editing experience
