- Custom designed cover
- Smart stickers allowing tagging and notebook filing at the scanning stage (settings done in the Evernote mobile app to customize each stickers).
- Exists in 2 sizes 13x21cm (5″ x 8,25″) and 9x14cm (3,5″ x 5,5″)
- Each notebook include a 3 month Premium code
- Special line to improve scanning and OCR
- On 2 notebooks (1 Evernote, 1 normal) I wrote as much as possible the very same text with a dummy drawing
- Test 1 : scan of the Evernote Moleskine with the iPhone Evernote app with the phone held parallel to the page
- Test 2 : scan of the Evernote Moleskine with the iPhone Evernote app with the phone held with an angle to the page
- Test 3 : scan of the standard Moleskine with the iPhone Evernote app with the phone held parallel to the page
- Test 4 : scan of the standard Moleskine with the iPhone Evernote app with the phone held with an angle to the page
- In all instances the smart stickers worked perfectly. The tags were applied and the notes were put in the designated notebook (settings can be changed in the Evernote mobile app).
- No notable difference in the OCR performance between the Evernote powered Moleskine and the standard one.
- The gorgeous cover
- The smart tickets work perfectly
- Can be an excellent conversation starter in a meeting to introduce Evernote around you
- Not really convinced that the special lines are actually helping the OCR (see my simple test)
- Might be seen as a little too expensive compared to a standard Moleskine if you don’t take into account the 3 month access to the Evernote Premium service
- If you are Evernote AND Moleskine fan, you HAVE to get an Evernote powered Moleskine
- If you are only an Evernote users without already using a Moleskine or another paper notebook, you don’t need this as the added smart features are not that worth it alone in my humble opinion.
- If you want to introduce Evernote to someone around you, this could be the perfect Christmas gift

In the interview he shares how he uses Evernote to scout for locations to take photos for his clients and how Evernote is part of his workflow.
You can check Pete’s wonderful photos on his superb web site: rashpixel.com
Here’s a pic I took from his website:

Here are the Evernote powered Moleskines (after a couple of phone calls to the Fedex customer service…).
To give you an idea of the size, here’s the small model with my Faber Castell pencil:
To give you an idea of the size, here’s the big model with my Faber Castell pencil:
Here you go, next step is to use those nice Moleskines and test the method to scan the content using the mobile app in conjunction with the smart stickers.

On episode #028 I presented you an interview of the 2012 Evernote DevCup Gold medal winner, in this episode you are going to listen to Hussein who won the Silver medal for his very cool web products called KustomNote.
KustomNote basically gives you the ability to create notes from templates. You have the choice of plenty of existing templates or you can create your own.
KustomNote is accessible online only at the moment through a web interface but Hussein said in the interview that he intends to add more interfaces and features in the near future.
Kudos to Hussein for developing such a cool FREE service.
Here’s how to use the service.
1 – You choose a template (or create one)
2 – You create the note by filling the fields of the template
There’s no step 3. You’re done ! The note is created in your Evernote account.
Until the next time happy evernoting !
Recently Twitter changed its policy meaning the triggers in place in IFTTT will no longer works on September 27th. It’s a pain but one cannot really blame Twitter to try to regain control over their ecosystem (but that’s another matter).
You can follow the easy 6 step method by reading his blog post.
For more information on all the great stuff you can automate with IFTTT, see episode TEC #004 – IFTTT and Evernote.
I have implemented his method and it works great, thanks Jamie. This method which uses RSS should work until March 2013, that’s still better than nothing (thanks @cybermarmotte for the info).
Until the next time, happy evernoting !
Another solution to archive your tweets to Evernote: twtr2src twtr2src.ogaoga.org
Thanks Joseph aka @tamegoeswild for the info.
Just received an e-mail from IFTTT saying the recipe I used with the RSS method is no longer working.
So we’ll have to find something else to archive tweets.
