Searches are faster with Evernote's new type ahead feature that offers suggestions based on your Evernote content, personal and shared notebooks are grouped together, and the new Atlas feature lets users view notes based on location. Version 5 also includes Mountain Lion Notification Center support.

Users can also sync with Evernote for the iPhone or iPad for access to their content on the go.

Users will need a free Evernote account to take advantage of the app. Evernote 5 is available as a free download at Apple's Mac App Store.
