TEC #040 – How to use offline notebooks

Premium feature : store notebooks offline on your mobile device

You setup the offline notebook feature on your mobile device :

SettingsOffline

OfflineNotebooks

My use of the offline notebook feature

  • I don’t synchronize all my notebooks because that would be too big on my iPhone
  • I created a dedicated notebook called “Offline” (yeah, I know, not very original)
  • I move to this notebook all the notes I want to have access to when offline

Examples

  • Train or plane ticket in PDF
  • Travel documents (hotel reservations, maps, etc.)
  • Notes I need to be sure I have access to such as a questions list for an interview where I need to put my phone in airplane mode

If you have other uses of the offline notebook feature, please share them in the comments or e-mail me an audio comment.

if you are in the Paris, France area don’t miss the 1st Paris Evernote Meetup of 2014 on January 29th.

Until the next episode, happy evernoting!

TEC #039 – Dmitry Gorsgkov interview (@PowerbotApps)

Here’s an interview I did with Dmitry Gorsgkov who is working for PowerbotaApps. He tells you all about the great extensions they are developping to connect Gmail, Gcal, Salesforce and many more to your Evernote account.

Basically the Gmail extension from PowerbotApps makes it really easy to send one of your mail to your Evernote account. You can even file it to a specific notebook and tag it.

TEC #038 – Fujitsu @Scansnap s1300i review

TEC #038 – Fujitsu @Scansnap s1300i review

Here’s my review of the Fujitsu ScanSnap s1300i.

scansnap-s1300i-1

Startup

  • Installation ScanSnap Manager (441 Mo to download, 775 Mo once installed on MacOSX)
  • Connexion with a USB/Mini-USB cable
  • Power supply with the wall wart supply provided or with a second USB cable

Use

  • Open the scanner and press the blue button !
  • Select on the computer the scan destination
  • Two options for Evernote, PDF or JPG

Sélection destination du scan

Scan tests

  • Printed paper to PDF
  • Printed paper to JPG
  • JPG option is the output option I would recommend for Evernote so you can have the OCR running on it unless you need to have the document in PDF format.
  • You can also scan a picture even though it’s not the primary purpose of this model. It’s still a solution if you want to make a quick digital copy of a print.

Conclusion

  • Very easy to use scanner
  • Fast to plug and use
  • Good integration with Evernote
  • Price 280€ or US$ on the Internet
  • Only small regret : I wish the s1300i would require only 1 USB cable to be powered and connected to a computer to reduce clutter on the desktop when used.
TEC #037 – Grégory Lefort interview (Azendoo’s CEO) – @greglefort

TEC #037 – Grégory Lefort interview (Azendoo’s CEO) – @greglefort

Hello,

I had the pleasure of having lunch last week with Grégory Lefort (aka @greglefort), Azendoo‘s CEO, we had a very rich exchange around the collaboration tool that his company offers and its integration with Evernote.

Note that Azendoo is a company that has caught the eye of Evernote during Leweb back in December 2012 which enabled them to be featured on the Trunk very rapidly.

Until the next episode, happy evernoting!

TEC #036 – Peter Jensen (@Moleskine head of Digital) interview

TEC #036 – Peter Jensen (@Moleskine head of Digital) interview

As I have been a longtime fan of the Moleskine notebooks, when Evernote announced the deal with Moleskine back in August 2012 I was delighted.

So I am very happy to present you with an interview I did with Peter Jensen Hobolt who is the Head of Digital at Moleskine based out of Milan in Italy.

He tells us everything about the Evernote/Moleskine deal, how it became a reality and what comes next. I am sure you will be surprised as I was about the backstory on this collaboration with the green elephant company.

Until the next time, happy evernoting !

TEC #035 – BitQwik presented by Robert, its developer

TEC #035 – BitQwik presented by Robert, its developer

Hello,

Robert Oschler, developer of BitQwik, presents in this episode what can be done with his great free Windows tool to do powerful search easily on your Evernote account.

Yes you can do similar search using the syntax provided by Evernote but it can be difficult to master so having a tool like BitQwik might just be the solution.

bitqwik-evernote-client-2

As Robert says himself on his website : “Unlock the power of Evernote’s rich set of search operators for finding notes with BitQwik!  You can filter search results by the date created or modified, by file type such as PDF files and more, by the tags used or the source application that created the note, and many, many, other useful ways.”

Until the next time, happy evernoting,

Pierre.
