Although apps like Evernote and Google Docs are great for storing text, they cannot replace a pen and paper. There is something more intuitive about scribbling notes, and you have the option to sketch your ideas.
The Rocketbook Everlast Mini is a notebook that offers the best of both worlds. It works just like a traditional notebook, but you can back up every page to the cloud using your smartphone. Better still, you can easily erase the whole thing and start again.
Right now, you can get a two-pack of Everlast Mini notebooks for $29.99 — that is 25% off the standard price.
Paper and pixels
There are clear benefits to storing your notes in the cloud. You can store thousands of ideas without filling your shelves, and find those notes again in seconds.
However, paper is still a great medium for making notes in the first place. Jotting down thoughts in a pocket-sized notebook is much easier than hauling around a laptop or poking at a touchscreen.
This is why the Rocketbook Everlast Mini makes a lot of sense. Measuring 3.5 x 5.5 inches, this compact notepad has 48 pages made from synthetic-blend paper.
When you have filled each page, you simply open the companion smartphone app and scan the paper. In seconds, your scribbles are uploaded to the cloud.
You can choose from a range of destinations, including Evernote, OneNote, Box, Google Docs, Trello, Slack and more. In addition, the Rocketbook app can make text editable and create digital to-do lists.
The coolest feature only becomes apparent when you have used up all the pages. Assuming you have used a Pilot FriXion pen, you can simply wipe away your notes with a damp cloth. You are writing on paper, but each page works like a whiteboard.
This trick works over and over again — hence the name, Everlast. The Mini version is ideal for taking into meetings and storing ideas on the move.
The two-pack bundle is worth $40, but you can get it now for just $29.99 with a choice of four colors.
