Moleskin Evernote Smart Notebook bridges physical to virtual

Evernote iOS camera app works with special Moleskin paper and stick-on Smart Stickers to capture and load pages into Evernote.

Evernote CEO Phil Libin says in TechCrunch he's ending the “age-old rivalry” with pen-and-paper. Since he admits even he still takes notes on paper, he started working with Moleskin to help bridge the gap. Now, notes taken on the Moleskin Smart Notebook ($24.95 for a pocket notebook, $29.95 for a large notebook), can be quickly uploaded to Evernote.

The pages use special dotted paper, rather than continuous lines, to help de-skew the image taken by your iOS device (no word yet about an Android version). A fancy cover marks the Smart Notebook from other Moleskin products. Notebooks can be pre-ordered now, and the app is ready for download.

Way cool

Just wanted to say I’m really excited about this and like the new update. A lot.

Just bought, order #263. Pretty brisk sales considering it's a pre-order.

As a steadfast notebook user and Evernote lover, hard to reconcile the two. This makes me so happy!

I think this is really quite neat. I used to be a heavy user of Evernote, but I found it difficult to reconcile my handwritten notes (90% of my notes at work) with what I'd have in Evernote.

Android or it didn’t happen

So first I was like aww yeah this is awesome, then I saw that it’s IOS only and I was like this sucks! Where’s the Android love?!

Not sure

I already use the Evernote app and Moleskine notebooks, but I’m not sure whether combining the two would work for me.

On the one hand, this sounds pretty neat and fascinating. And on the other... those prices are a bit absurd, right? That's about double the cost of the "standard" moleskins in similar sizes.

This is the world crying out for a fast e-ink small form-factor tablet that just saves everything as digital ink.

Have you just tried taking a photo of handwritten notes to see if it worked? Did it?
