Tips: Send documents to Evernote

Sending documents from Genius Scan to Evernote is very easy with the email function.

1. Find out your Evernote email address in Evernote settings https://www.evernote.com/User.action#summary. It will look like: yourlogin.12345@m.evernote.com. You can save it to your Contacts as Evernote.

2. In Genius Scan, use the Send by email function and select Evernote in the To: field.

3. In the subject line, add the title of the document. You can also choose the notebook by using an @ followed by the name of the notebook. You can also add tags by using a # followed by the tag title. For instance:
Subject: Expense report @work #travel #nyc

Tips: Genius Scan on iPhone 3G

iOS 4 on iPhone 3G is known has being sluggish, especially memory-wise. This is a problem for Genius Scan which requires enough memory for image processing. Occasionally, Genius Scan may crash for iPhone 3G users.

One of our users solved her problems with iOS 4 by disabling the Spotlight search features in Settings > General > Spotlight. You then uncheck all the options. Of course, this makes Spotlight unusable but according to our user, "This made a huge difference."


Turning off and restarting the iPhone might also help.
