Very excited about my newest toy… #evernote #moleskine

Just got the new Evernote Moleskine notepad in the mail. As most know, I’m a huge Evernote fan and lately I’ve taken to using an actual notebook (like, paper and pen stuff) to take notes in meetings because I get too distracted with an iPad or laptop in front of me. Then after meetings I take a picture of the note and upload it to Evernote. Works pretty well.

This Moleskine Evernote Smart Notebook (I got the graph paper version) is made for that purpose and it does a great job of it. And I love the Moleskine brand so I was happy to plunk down the money to try this out. So far so good.

Update – I’m having trouble focusing the camera when in the mode to capture pages, so hopefully that’s a bug they’ll fix soon. But loving the notebook itself so far.

    That’s actually pretty rad, and I’m loving this seeming resurgence in more old-school tools. But I have to be skeptical about how a thirty-dollar notebook would photograph any better than a cheap one. Do the pages have special registration marks or something?

    A) It’s probably not technically worth it, unless you’re someone that buys $30 notebooks, so you’re right on that one, and B) it does supposedly have special recognition and it does automatically crop the photo because it knows where the page starts and ends, which is nice but not totally necessary.

    I put that on my Christmas list this year. It looks amazing. I’ve been doing a lot of brainstorming on a whiteboard and using those photos as Evernote docs. This should make meetings go a lot better than having my laptop out.

    I installed evernote a long time ago but never got into it. On my ipad, however, I have come to use NotesPlus almost every day. Importing a PDF into the file and then writing notes directly onto it is my new favorite use of that app.

    […] don’t take notes digitally in meetings. I’ve written before about my love for the Evernote Moleskine and why I prefer taking notes on paper. So the iPad isn’t something I use in meetings […]
