If you don’t already use Evernote, you’re missing out. It is the #1 online note taking application, where you can take notes and attach files on it and save it in the cloud. It’s also available on your desktop (Windows and Mac), mobile (iOS, Android, Blackberry, Windows Phone) and browser (Safari, Chrome, Firefox), which means your notes will be synced across any device.
Last Wednesday, on 28 Nov 2012, Evernote collaboration with Moleskin announced Evernote Smart Notebook by Moleskin which is now available in Malaysia.
The Evernote Smart Notebook is a Moleskin physical notebook that pairs seamlessly with the Evernote App. Basically, you write or draw or doodle anything on the Moleskin notebook, use your phone camera and snap a picture of the note in your Evernote app and it automatically syncs and transforms into a proper Evernote note.
All notes are instantly searchable, shareable and transformed (with handwriting recognition) for Evernote cloud storage.
Check out the video demo below:-

As you can see in the video, the Moleskin notebook also comes with “Smart Stickers” which enables you to stick on to the respective pagesas tags for your notebook. When you snap the picture and the written page is automatically synced to your Evernote app, the stickers serves as tags to the note, which allows you to easily search through them in the app.
Personally, I feel this is the perfect combination of handwritten notes and digital notes. Especially for those of you who still takes handwritten notes in meetings, discussions, to scribble ideas, etc in real life. Using the ruler lines and grids in the Evernote Smart Notebook, it recognizes your scribbles and turns it into proper digitized note.
