[prMac.com] London, United Kingdom - New Cam note paper notepad turns handwritten notes digital and ushers them gently and methodically into the cloud. Do you have too many ideas? Several shopping lists? Maybe even a Christmas shopping list already? A disorganised notebook that takes ages to find the page you wanted? Do you sometimes pull soggy memos out of pockets of freshly washed jeans? Are there more sticky notes on your computer monitor than there are leaves on the trees? If this sounds like a description of your life, then it might be time to go digital.
Cam note, created by Active Soft, is a new system that's designed to help you increase productivity and go paperless in as few clicks as possible. The specially designed Cam note notepads are created to be as handy and portable as an everyday notepad, but also to work with the free Cam note app by cutting out some of the tedious steps that's usually associated with digitising memo's.
Cam note is a notepad that is scannable which comes with a free app, it allows you to quickly capture your handwritten notes via your smart phone's camera. The notepad's special markings make scanning with the free app, available for Android and iPhone, really quick and simple. The Cam note app and notepad work together to recognise what is important information and what is background. It makes cropping and saving much quicker.
Because of the special features of the seemingly innocuous notepads, Cam note cuts out all those manual steps you'd normally have to take when digitising notes. Don't worry, if you find you've left your notepad at home or you've written an amazing business idea on a napkin in the pub, the app still works with ordinary paper, although it will ask you to post-process your notes manually.
Cam note intelligently suggests how to crop your note to keep only the important information and after you tagged it. It syncs to your cloud service of choice including Evernote, Dropbox or Google Drive, making it available online wherever you go.
The tagging feature means that your notes are easily searchable. Unlike my paper notebook which takes several minutes of flicking through to find the ideas you want. When you tag your note and upload it to Evernote, your tags remain intact, making your paperless office that little bit more efficient. For even more efficiency, when you upload your notes to Evernote or Google Drive, they are compatible with their OCR technology.
