Paper Notebooks Made for Scanning

September 24, 2012 by Gabe | [mmd] |

MakeUseOf has a nice review of Whitelines notebooks and iOS apps. It's similar to the latest Evernote and Moleskine collaboration.

The paper is subtly marked to allow the scanner app to auto orient and correct image layout and color. It's a nice idea and I'm sure it works great. I'd still prefer a better sketching and handwritten notes app on iOS. I'd really love to see an industry standard that can be adopted by paper manufacturers. Requiring a specific notebook and app is just too limiting for me.

That said, all of these are small steps towards better note-taking and digitization and I like that. I may give one or both a try. They are very similar but Whitelines looks like it provides more options for automatic processing of scans.
