Evernote Scannable: Moving Paper Forward

Evernote has released a new app for Apple’s iOS platform, this week.

First announced during the Evernote conference – back in October, and seeing its release on the App Store, yesterday, just like similar scanning offerings of its type Evernote Scannable allows you to automatically capture high-quality scans anywhere.

It does this by asking you to point your iPhone‘s camera at the documents, Post-it® Notes, or whiteboards that you want to save for later. Once you do, Evernote Scannable will scan the contents of these surfaces, immediately, capturing and storing their data.

To save you some time the company is also building in all of the expected functions, like rotate, crop, and adjust, so that your scans are “clear and easy to read,” it says.

Once you’ve scanned in the documents or notes you want to keep a record of, you can also use Evernote Scannable to send these scans to whomever you please via either email or SMS.

You can also save them to Evernote and other supported apps.

Evernote says that the new solution will help you to use paper “professionally,” as you turn business cards into contacts, pulling information from both actual physical business cards, and LinkedIn. You can then save this scanned information to a contact in your iPhone’s contacts list, without having to enter it in manually.

Or how about banishing all those paper stacks you have lying around? As Evernote Scannable works seamlessly with the ScanSnap Evernote Edition scanner, the app will allow for multi-page document scanning, too, so you can get your documents – no matter how many pages they contain – to exactly where they need to go.

“With Evernote Scannable, your whole team can control a ScanSnap Evernote Edition from their own devices and send paper on its way,” the company explains.

Evernote Scannable is a FREE download from the App Store, and despite a few initial issues with international users being unable to download the app over the last several hours, is said by the company to be available worldwide.
