That said, I've used this pretty extensively since I bought it, and I have used the Evernote integration as well. The pictures do come out pretty nicely.
I've nearly filled this one, and plan to pick up a new one very soon. And, since I've been snapping the notes and uploading them to Evernote, once I've used the entire notebook there's no reason to hold onto the paper copy in the worries that there might be some spark of genius hiding on one of the pages. I've started flipping through all the old notebooks I have and snapping pictures of whatever I might want in those notebooks as well, and in doing so, I've cleared off a bit of valuable bookshelf space.
This process has highlighted the difference between this notebook and those--the pictures I take of the pages in the Evernote notebook do come out a bit more clearly and a bit less skewed than those I take of pages in other notebooks. Whatever they do on their end to fiddle with the contrast and identify the skew of the page, they do it well, and I love being able to scribble my thoughts down when I'm in a setting in which a phone is just not appropriate, and then uploading them for use later. I find I use it a lot to take notes in lectures or meetings.
In the meantime, I've also purchased a large version, and the 2015 weekly calendar. Both of those are proving useful as well. The large one, I'm using as a daily journal, and the calendar, I'm using as a calendar (big surprise).
I was expecting more 'magic' and integration -- something special about this notebook, but found none other than the included 3mo subscription code. I thought maybe my (Android) app wasn't set up correctly, but no.. it's just pictures of paper, like any other. No automatic alignment, no grid removal, nothing really. Apparently the stickers are only for iOS?
Fits well in a back pocket, very nice cover, and good quality paper. It's a nice notebook, but I imagine $20 buys other nice notebooks too.
The pages are quite small, so I find I write close to the binding. Then you have the challenge of holding it fully open while taking an awkward one-handed picture with Evernote's page camera. Orientation, finger obfuscation, and focus are all the same as any cheap notebook.
I'd love to see something more like Livescribe, where Evernote has special orientation marks (angle correction) or selection boxes on each page. A lay-flat binding would be nice for something you're expected to photograph.
If you're not already a subscriber, the 3mo trial is probably the biggest incentive to buy this over another notebook. Sure feels like a great opportunity missed, though -- Evernote and Moleskin. Could have been more.
BE ADVISED: if you are already an Evernote subscriber and you paid via the Evernote website, the points will extend your current Evernote subscription 3 months. BUT, if you paid for your Evernote service via Google Play or Apple app store, the free 3 months will run concurrently with your current subscription without any credit for the service you're already paying for --annoying. I canceled my subscription autorenew on Google Play and plan to use the 30 points after my EN subscription expires next November.
This is so small that it does not lay as flat as I expected or hoped. This makes it somewhat awkward for taking pictures of pages with my Evernote app to upload content to my Evernote account. Pages rarely lay flat, so I adapt by tilting the camera to match the angle of the paper. This means I need to leave some margin around all edges, making the usable space of the paper even smaller. I also find that the spacing of the squares is smaller than I can clearly and carefully write, so I use the lines as guidelines but typically write at 1.5-line spacing. But it is effective, and text recognition is good. I just use it for smaller notes now, such as phone calls.
The advantage of the small size is that I can carry it in the pocket of my sport coat, so I have a good notebook handy when needed during breaks at conferences or business meetings when the rest of my materials are back at my seat. After 6-8 weeks of use, it does not show wear of the cover or the elastic band, which is excellent.
So for a pocket notebook for short notes and three months of Evernote Premium included, I can recommend this.
