A big part of the Evernote Android app is browsing for notes you've already created in the service. You can access all of your notes and notebooks and search helps you find just what you want.

Context

In the newest version of the app, Evernote adds a feature called Context. It puts related articles from selected publications below your notes, where relevant. It's only available to premium subscribers; those with a free account will see related notes in this space.
