Evernote To Launch Branded Post-It Notes



Here’s an idea to file in your Evernote app under “Why didn’t anyone do this before?”: Evernote Post-It notes. That’s right; Evernote has teamed up with 3M to offer multi-colored, Evernote-branded sticky notes which can be scanned into the app to save, well, forever.

The implementation details are scarce as there has not yet been an announcement from Evernote itself, but Evernote CEO Phil Libin told the Wall Street Journal that there will be multiple colors of notes, and that you can assigne colors to different in-app categories for auto filing when they’re scanned using your iPhone’s camera.

He also hinted that off-brand notes would work (the Evernote notes are distinguished only by the Evernote elephant-head logo it seems), which will let you digitize all those curled-up yellow squares adorning your monitor. My guess is that there will be an app update that’ll let the camera recognize and process the colored squares.

This is great, and way more useful than the Evernote Moleskine. There’s even a bonus: Each pack comes with a one-month subscription to Evernote Premium, so if you buy a pack a month then you can get all your hand-scrawled notes bumped to the front of the handwriting-recognition queue without paying any extra.

Available soon.

    …and they’ll cost how much for this branding and ‘free’ month long subscription? 3M’s Post-its are already absurdly expensive for what they are, I can only imagine the hike for these.

    Because you can’t just take a picture of a regular post-it note and save it to Evernote… This is a ridiculously pointless product.

    I don’t understand cultofmac’s utter fascination/fetish for Evernote at all. It’s an editor. One of dozens if not hundreds available. At some point, I begin to wonder if one or more of the staff here are involved with the development, or receiving some sort of profit from it.
