  1. A barcode scanning ability in Evernote would be a win-win for Evernote and their users. For Evernote, barcode scanning would allow Evernote to offer links to online retailers who offer the product associated with the barcode, and Evernote could insert their own affiliate links into the links. (This is similar to how Pinterest monetizes their website). For Evernote users, barcode scanning connected to Evernote is brilliant. Many shoppers at physical retailers might see products they like but aren't ready to purchase, and can simply snap pictures of the barcodes via their phone's evernote app, for them to refer back to from the convenience of their home or office computer. This experience is superior to barscanning apps on phones that are only useful for immediate price comparison, but not for saving and referring to later. A barcode scanned into Evernote could trigger an Evernote plugin that creates a pop-up that appears when the highlighted barcode is clicked, and showing online shopping options for that product. Any barcodes that Evernote recognizes can be highlighted a certain color to indicate that the barcode is recognized and that shopping links are available. This will give Evernote a great way to monetize even their free users. In fact, Evernote could consider giving free users pro-rated upload credits based on the amount of affiliate revenue they generate for Evernote via their shopping from barcode links. This will incentivize customers to shop via Evernote through which they get Evernote upload credit. Evernote, you are free to thank me for my brilliant idea!
