It works in both portrait and landscape mode. It also allows you to set reminders for specific tasks and it notifies you too. Unfortunately, you can’t change the background of the notes, but overall the App is amazing with a lot of great features.

The recent “Evernote Trunk” idea adds thousands of new features to the App. To get started, you need to create an Evernote account and download the App from the market. You could then create audio notes, video notes, text notes, upload a file and sync them to your account. Once synced, you can access your notes from all your devices.

Evernote for Android has a hard time displaying notes on the device itself and the note taking environment is just fine. Otherwise, the App is brilliant and the experience is incomparable.
