  • Android: Tap and hold the floating, plus sign (+) button from any note, notebook, or tag list, then tap Camera (or tap the camera on the Evernote widget).
  • iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch:

2. Take the photo

Position the Post-it® Note so that it's visible inside the frame, then snap the photo:

  • iPod Touch, and earlier iPhone and iPad models: The camera is on manual capture mode, by default. Tap the shutter button to snap a photo.
  • Newer iOS devices: By default, the camera starts in auto-mode and captures the photo automatically. Tap the lined paper image at the top of the screen to switch to manual capture mode.
  • The new Evernote for iOS: By default, the camera starts in manual capture mode. Tap 'Auto' at the bottom of the screen to switch to auto-mode to capture the photo automatically.
