DocScanner For iOS: My Portable Scanner

In the end, I always settled with using my iPhone’s camera for taking quick photos of stuff, and keeping the documents that needed to be scanned by an actual scanner until I got to my fiancée’s house, which had a Canon MX 426 multifunction printer.

A couple of months ago, Evernote announced its partnership with Moleskine, giving birth to the Evernote Smart Notebook by Moleskine. While you’d think that the goal of a service such as Evernote would be to make paper obsolete, they actually compliment each other pretty well. One thing that surprised me is that the notebook actually made it all the way to Malaysia, a pleasant surprise indeed.
