As a basic or plus user, you get access to three widgets. You will find one that gives you quick access to the notes you have recently added. You will also see notes that Evernote thinks you will return to even if you have not visited them for a while. The other two basic widgets act as a baseboard where you can quickly note misguided thoughts and a place where Evernote gathers all your recently saved web clips, photos, documents, audio files and emails.
In the meantime, as a premium or business subscriber, you will find four additional widgets with more advanced functionality. In addition to a place for notes, you will find one dedicated to your notebooks. As its counterpart, it highlights your recent notebooks as well as those that Evernote thinks you might want to visit again. You will also find a single pinned note. As Evernote points out, this is a convenient way to keep a running to-do list. Two additional widgets give you easy access to your frequently used tags and shortcuts, making it easier to navigate the app.
In addition, premium and business users can customize the dashboard by rearranging and removing one of the included widgets as well as resizing them as they see fit. They will also have the option to add a custom background, either one they themselves have uploaded or selected from one of the preloaded options.
Evernote plans to roll out the Home update for Mac, Windows, and Web users over the next few weeks. The feature will find its way to iOS and Android devices at a later date.
