  1. I'm stuck with the same issue too on my iPhone 5, which is incredibly frustrating. The only way I managed to resolve this the first time was to delete the app and re-download it. It's happened again now, but I'm loathe to delete it again, since I'll need to re-download my offline notes. Hopefully a solution can be found soon. Update: I managed to get out of that sticky situation by double pressing the home button and closing every single app in the list. Not sure if this will work for everybody, but that's what I did.
  2. Hi James, As some of the replies above have mentioned, you'll need to consider a few things: 1. Are you looking for a portable scanner that is always with you, or something that is good but not too clunky to bring along with you? 2. Are you planning to do a lot of scanning on a weekly/daily basis? 3. If you're going down the route of an app, which platform are you on? My reason for asking the questions above are: 1. If you're looking for something that is always with you that can do reasonable scans, then a mobile phone is your best bet. If you want something that gives you good quality scans, but won't bring it everywhere (such as to the grocery store), then you could check out the Doxie and Fujitsu scanners that you metnioned. 2. If you're not doing a lot of scanning, you could try the mobile apps. 3. If you're on iOS, I'd suggest DocScanner. If you're on Android, I'd suggest CamScanner. I did a review on DocScanner here, in case it helps: http://chungliwen.com/blog/docscanner-for-ios-my-portable-scanner/ Good luck. Cheers, Matt
  3. @ab1kenobee: No problem. Glad to be able to help. Cheers, Matt
  4. Hi ab1kenobee/Alan, Sorry for the late reply. I don't think I set up the notifications for this thread properly and didn't notice that you posted that question. Thanks a lot for your kind comments, I'm really glad that it helped provide some useful information. One thing that I noticed is that you mentioned that you're using a Samsung Galaxy Note 2, which means you're on Android. When I typed that post, I was using an iPhone 4/5, and I've since moved to an LG Nexus 4 (running Android). While my experience with DocScanner on iOS was awesome, I must sadly say that DocScanner on Android is horrible and I really wouldn't recommend it to anyone. I'm not sure why there is such a vast difference in quality, though the updated comment that you posted on the development of the Android version of DocScanner might partially answer the question. As gchamberlin/Greg mentioned, CamScanner seems to be the de facto mobile scanning app for Android, and it's currently what I'm using. It's a far cry from DocScanner in terms of ease of use, but it gets the job done. One other thing that I recently discovered is that while DocScanner for iOS seems to be rather good for scanning documents, it doesn't do very well on photos. I was trying to scan some photos, but they kept getting sized wrongly or the colours being inaccurate. I guess that's why it's called DocScanner and not PhotoScanner. That being said, it's still one of the apps that I miss most from iOS. I guess I'd better update my blog post to reflect that my remarks are for the iOS version of the app, and not the Android version. Thanks for bringing this up!
  5. Hi Don, Great tips! I'm trying a similar style too: Notebook: Journal Note title format: Journal DDMMYY <Title that describes today> Tags: None Body: All text at the top so far, and I add one image at the bottom that is a major event of the day. Hopefully I'll have some time to write up a blog post on this in the near future. I'm currently into my third day of using this journal.
  6. Hi Guys, I recently switched from an iPhone to Android. What I used to do in iOS was to use a bookmarklet to save the articles I wanted to Pocket, and then from Pocket, I'd export it to Evernote. That worked fine for me. Now in Android, I share the articles from my browser to Pocket (works fine), but when I find that the article is good in Pocket and I share it to Evernote, it loses all it's formatting and images, and everything is in plain text. This basically makes it pretty tough to read. I end up sharing to Evernote, going back to my desktop, re-opening the link in a browser and saving it to Evernote again, which is pretty silly. Is anybody encountering a similar issue and have any solution to this? Thanks a lot! Cheers, Matt
  7. Thanks Gazumped! That worked. Any idea if there is such a setting for the Evernote Food application? I have the same issue there, but I'm unable to find a similar setting. Thanks, Matt
  8. Hi Aaron, This looks pretty interesting. I always love seeing how other people use Evernote. Your article reminds me that I should increase my usage of IFTTT. Thanks for the article. Cheers, Matt
  9. Hi, Depending on how many notes you're planning on scanning a day, this might or might not be the solution. I use DocScanner for scanning my notes on the go, or when I'm too lazy to walk to the office scanner and do what needs to do done. The app isn't free (there are other free alternatives like GeniusScan or something, but I like this), and it can automatically upload to Evernote. I assume that's what you want. I did a mini review on my blog here: http://chungliwen.com/blog/docscanner-for-ios-my-portable-scanner/ Hope it helps. Cheers, Matt
  10. That's pretty interesting. I didn't know you could do that. Thanks for sharing!
  11. Ah, I managed to figure out the solution to this. It's slightly embarrassing, but after changing by time zone back to GMT+8, I forgot to change the actual time. I've since changed the time on my computer, and it seems good now. I didn't delete this topic in case someone happens to make the same mistake, but if the mods think it's redundant, please go ahead and delete it. Thanks!
