iOS 11: Evernote Makes Siri Part of the Team

This is a great improvement: Evernote today announced its popular app will integrate with Siri, which means you’ll be able to ask Siri to do things for you in Evernote.

This means that if you use Evernote on an iOS 11 device, you’ll be able to ask Siri to do things like:

  • “Evernote, create a note called Meeting Ideas”
  • “Evernote, add ‘bring pizza’ to my Meeting Ideas note”
  • “Evernote, create a list with ‘order lunch’ and ‘write agenda’”
  • “Show me what I created today in Evernote”

“Create a shopping list on your iPad while you’re making breakfast; add to-dos to Evernote on your iPhone while you’re stuck in traffic; create a note with your AirPods while you’re working out,” the company says.

What it does

Evernote’s Siri integration means you can ask Siri to do the following:

  • Create a new note
  • Create a note with a task list
  • Create a reminder
  • Add to an existing note (“Add ‘Order lunch’ to my ‘Meeting ideas’ note.”)
  • Add to an existing task list
  • Search for notes in Evernote

Mac users are in for a little disappointment, as unfortunately macOS does not currently support SiriKit, which allows Siri to handle your requests on iOS.

Watching Apple since 1999. I don't say what they should do. I say what they might do. They sometimes do.
