Great when it works Doesn't always recognise the outline of the paper. PLEASE include a manual function for when the last box isn't identified by the camera.
Fast But Low Quality Super-quick scans and good perspective correction. But, the scanned images are of low quality.
Bad UX and scan quality When using Evernote, I recommend scanning with that directly
I am a fan of writing notes by hand, but at the same time, in this digital age, it is difficult to reconcile oneself with simply taking notes by hand. What if the notes get lost?! Whitelines is a brilliant way of combing the best of two worlds. I am very happy with the general concept of the app and their products as such. :) (My device is a Samsung galaxy S6).
The app works, but the output quality isn't great. First, the output resolution is less than native for my camera -- taking a picture "by hand" yields a higher resolution image which looks better than what you get using the app. Secondly, the output format is .jpg and introduces noticeable .jpg artifacts around all of the letters in normal ink handwriting. As a proof of concept, manually deleting the jpg artifacts and re-saving as .png yields a better looking and smaller final product -- this gives me hope that the app back end could be improved in the future. Page-finding and background subtraction both work quite well, so I could see myself using this app more if the output quality was up to scratch. I would love to have some metadata encoded into the notebook corner codes. You could imagine the app being able to sort your pages by notebook and put them in the right order. At the moment, as others have commented, you're totally on our own organization-wise.
I've been using the equivalent iOS app to send scans to my Evernote account for years, but am having slight problems with the android version. The default filename cannot be read by Evernote and the image quality (as others have mentioned) its noticeably blurrier.
Introducing Material Design
- Fresh, more user-friendly design
- Scans made in the same session are gathered in a stack
- Notes can be combined into stacks
- Notes in a stack can be rearranged
Introducing PDF export
- Notes and stacks can be exported as PDF
- Notes and stacks now have names
We also made the image recognition better and faster!
