Evernote Integrates With 1DollarScan To Add Your Scanned Books To Its Data Store
A couple of months ago, I interviewed Phil Libin, CEO of Evernote, about what might come next for the note-taking, image-collecting, audio-recording app, and one answer he gave me had to do with books. "I�think books are like food. Memories are formed while reading books, articles and periodicals, and that is not being adequately represented and captured at this point. I?d love to do something around that," he said. "I don?t want Evernote to become the place where you store media, but I do want it to be the place where you capture memories, annotations...We have specific plans and ideas in this area." Well, today comes one of the first manifestations of that plan: Evernote is teaming up with 1DollarScan to offer a digital scanning service for users' books -- the first time a third party has integrated with Evernote to offer such a feature. Users can send in their books to 1DollarScan, which scans and put those books into the cloud, where Evernote users can then use the app to access, read and annotate them wherever their Evernote app happens to be, whether it's on a smartphone, tablet, e-reader or online.
