How to capture notes using the Post-it® Note Mode

Write clearly and legibly on a Post-it® Note with any type of pen or ink. Then, follow these steps to capture your notes into Evernote:


1. Start the Evernote Post-it® Note camera

  • 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: Tap Photos (camera) button from the home screen or from any opened note.
  • Windows Phone: Swipe to select the Post-it® camera.


2. Take the photo

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

  • iPod Touch, earlier iPhone and iPad models, and Windows phones: 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.


3. Preview, then save or discard

To preview captured note(s), tap the captured image or thumbnail(s) of captured notes. From here you can select particular pages to keep or discard.

  • Save: To save a note, tap Save (iOS), or tap the checkmark (Android).
  • Discard: To discard a note, tap the trash bin (Android and Windows), or tap and hold down on an image from the thumbnail tray and slide towards the top of the screen. Keep sliding upwards until the the trash bin appears and the thumbnail disappears.

If you capture multiple notes at a time, Evernote saves the entire set of Post-it® Notes as a single, Evernote note. To save each Post-it® Note as an individual, Evernote note, just confirm and save after each photo, then capture a new photo for the next note you'd like to save.
