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

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?!

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.

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