New to Evernote ...

I took a picture from my Android and emailed it to Evernote. I see the business card in my account, but I was hoping to be able to search it using the name or company on the card. Nothing so far. The card appear clear to me for readability.

1) How do I know if an image has been processed for text conversion? .. is there an icon?

2) I saw another post that this conversion doesn't occur on the client notebooks if I place the image there first. Is this true? I would have thought that an image could have been originated from anywhere and after it was sync'ed it would be processed and updated across all platforms for text recognition.

Images are processed in Premium accounts relatively quickly (a minute or two), and Free accounts are processed after all Premium images are done, so may take a few minutes. There's no indicator of this status on the Android, but from the desktop clients, you can display the full Info for a note to see whether processing is done.

If you sync a client after processing has finished on the service, it will get the results. Then you can move that note into a Local-only notebook if you want. If you create a note on a Local-only client in the desktop client, it won't be processed unless you move it to a synchronized notebook.
