    Pros: 

    - Classy - Better for sketching - Works with Dropbox rather than the OG Evernote

    Cons: 

    - Not a revolution - Doesn't seem to remove backgrounds - Not better than Dropbox's mobile app scanner + another notebook

    Moleskine's paper is not as good as before. I don't know why they changed it but they should focus on bringing quality back rather than creating more special collections.

    Amokrane Tamine has never used this product.

Seems like a cool product, but I expected a bit more from a "smart notebook". With a bit of work, a photo/document scanning app can do this with any notebook.

Loved the original smart notebook with evernote back in college. This is a great addition to that line-up

I've been wanting something close to this for a long time. I love writing on paper. Even the best tech products like the iPad Pro can't beat the experience. But I do want the notes I take available in my note-taking software, like Notion and Apple Notes. I love the scanning component of this, but I think the software piece could be better. Perhaps I could choose tools besides Dropbox to import my drawings? And maybe I could get B/W SVG's of the notes I took? Or automatic transcription? Either way, this is a start to connecting physical notebooks to software and I think that's pretty cool.

@john_c_palmer There are devices that you may like. https://us.moleskine.com/en/pen-... the pen is built by Neolab and they also do this https://www.neosmartpen.com/en/n... Both require a specific notebook but not the one below https://www.myequil.com/smartpen2/

Why not use the dropbox app and make a photo? And u can use any kind of paper. Makes no sense this.

I get it. As a fountain pen addict, I'd rather write notes on paper than type them or use a Surface/iPad Pro... but how is this better than using Dropbox's mobile app scanning feature? Also, I can somehow get the hype surrounding Moleskine -they work great with pencils- but the quality of their paper has dropped recently. Right now, there is nothing as good as Rhodia in terms of quality, especially for fountain pen writing. The most interesting thing here is that you don't want to rely on Evernote anymore, maybe because you think it's doomed.
