Evernote Teams up with Moleskine to Offer Smart Notebooks

on August 25, 2012 1:00 pm

If you are an Evernote user, you probably already know that you can backup your paper notebooks and journals by snapping pictures of the pages and uploading them into your account. Evernote and Moleskine are coming together to offer smart notebooks that offer features that make this task even better. When you take a snapshot of a page in these notebooks with the iOS mobile Evernote app, the special dotted paper pattern on the pages color corrected, skewed correctly and digitized for searching. Also included are stickers that allow the page to be tagged and saved into a specific notebook automatically based on your settings.

These notebooks will be available October 1st in either ruled or squared pages in pocket and large sizes for $24.95 and $29.95. The prices are pretty expensive when compared to the non-smart versions of the same Moleskines. I went ahead and placed an order ($9.90 for shipping – OUCH) so I can find out if the it’s worth paying the extra money over using “dumb” notebooks.

    Why bother? I scan all my field notebook pages as PDF files into Evernote. What would these buy me?

    @RGrenader I think the main advantages are when you use it with the dedicated Evernote iOS app that fixes color, skew and the automatic tagging when using the included stickers.

    As an Amazon Prime user, I always expect cheep, if any, shipping costs. I certainly would never pay $10 to ship anything.

    … But it does look interesting (I checked Amazon, it’s not there).
