Premium Feature: Business Card Scanning

Business card piles are the worst. They seem to collect like useless monuments to past meetings and conferences. It doesn’t have to be this way. Next time, instead of stuffing those cards into your pocket, snap a picture of them with Evernote’s new Business Card camera. Each card is instantly recognized, digitized, and converted into editable text that becomes a contact note in Evernote. You can find the Business Card mode by swiping right on the camera screen.

In your Account Settings, you can create a profile for yourself that can be emailed to your new contacts. It’s a nice, clutter-free way to complete that first meeting.

Better with LinkedIn
Evernote can only read the information that’s on the card, but if you want even more, we recommend connecting your Evernote account to LinkedIn. We’ll cross-reference what we find on the card with LinkedIn to make a richer note that even includes a photo of the person you’ve met.

Premium Feature: Presentation Mode

Presentation Mode has fundamentally changed how meetings happen at Evernote. There’s an amazing freedom

in knowing that you can share your thoughts with the group just by plugging in your Mac and launching Presentation Mode. Now, we’re bringing this feature to your phone and tablet, no laptop required. All you need is a screen set up for AirPlay or a cable for your device. Once you have that, tap on theMoredots at bottom of a note, then tapPresent .

Your notes will take over the screen. As you scroll on your phone or tablet, the screen will progress. Tap and hold to enable the laser pointer to show something important. To switch between day and night modes, tap on the sun or moon icons in top right of the screen.

This feature isn’t just for throwing your notes onto a screen. It’s also great for walking someone through an idea right on your device, without any distractions. You’ll love this on your iPad.
