3M Post-Its go digital with Evernote

technologyEdward Kiledjian1 Comment

I have been using Evernote for a couple of year now and love how it organizes and makes my information accessible everywhere. A year ago they started collaborating with "old world" products like Moleskine  making it easy for users of these popular product to digitize information written to them. 

Now they push the envelope even further with the release of the latest update which allows you to snap a picture of a 3M Post-IT note and then have it automatically categorized based on the color of the Post-It.  To accomplish this feat of engineering, they added a new option to the Evernote app's camera feature


You can go from one camera mode to another simply by swiping left or right.

3M has released a new four-color pack of Post-It notes with the Evernote emblem on it. You can configure each color to perform some different automatic actions: set an alarm, add a particular tag or file in a particular notebook (or all of the above).

And of course Evernote will run the scan through its Optical Character Recognition engine to make it searchable.
