At Evernote, we see the benefits of both the digital and analog spaces and we’ve spent a lot of time developing features that connect the two. You can tap notes directly into Evernote, but it’s also just as easy to snap a photo that instantly makes your handwritten words digitized and searchable.
- Search handwriting
I use this all the time. I also love that it searches inside PDF documents too.
- Evernote Moleskine notebooks
I have one of these! It was worth it just for the quality journal and the year of Evernote premium. *I purchased mine long before their recent payment structure changes. I haven’t looked to see how things are offered now.
- Evernote for Android
This is literally my most used app. I use the document camera all the time to help reduce the paperwork pile. #1 on that list of paperwork is receipts!
- Jot Script Evernote Edition Stylus
Never tried it. It looks like a slick stylus. My current stylus is challenged by the fact that it takes AAAA batteries. Those are hard to find! All the same, I prefer writing on paper than on my tablet.
- Post-it Note Camera
This could be expanded to include “document camera” – it smart recognizes and does OCR on post-its, business cards, and other documents differently than “just pictures.”
I’ve never tried this because I do not have any iThings.
- LiveScribe Pen
They didn’t list this one, but it is a tool I use in conjunction with Evernote all the time! I love this pen. It has one drawback in the latest version regarding the ink, but overall I still have huge love for this pen that allows me to write pen to paper and then export those pages to PDF in Evernote with the Livescribe app. Easy peasy!
