Google Nexus 7 Tablet {Review} + Moleskin Evernote Smart Notebook {Giveaway!}

Share it!   

google-nexus-7-tablet-590x800

I’m sharing a little review and giveaway to add some sunshine to possible November blahs! The lucky winner will win the new Moleskin Evernote Smart Notebook! (Canadian readers, enter the postal code 90210 to view the link. Hee hee… 90210… I’m hoping you know what I mean).

 

What’s special about this Moleskin Evernote Smart notebook?

Write, sketch, or draw in it and take a photo of any page in this book with the Evernote Page Camera and it instantly becomes digital so that you can save it, search it and share it with the world. Once in Evernote, you can search for your handwritten notes by keyword, tag, or just visually browse.

If you’re not familiar with it, this video shows how it works:

I’m thinking it’ll be perfect for my recipe notes! I’ll be able to easily transfer my scribbles into my tablet, iphone and laptop, saving myself time and ensuring I never lose them!

Another idea – doodled cookie ideas just became easier to save and edit! Draw an idea in the Moleskin notebook, take a photo of it and have instant digital copies on all devices. Also perfect for further digital editing; like playing around with colors and designs.

I recently received a Google Nexus 7 Tablet to capture Moleskin notes with and as a place to find and store recipes…

… which I love it for. No printing required, handy, vibrant visuals and easy to read. If you’re as clumsy as I am, you’ll feel better knowing that the screen is scratch resistant too!

I love it for browsing recipes on line, and, a little perk, I love Pinterest on the tablet too… it fits nicely into my hand, and has a really neat pinning option where you can hold your finger down on a photo you’re interested in, and easily swipe your finger to pin, like or share.

This one I haven’t tried out yet, but have seen the idea mentioned in my comment sections as an alternative to the Kopykake projector – using an App to help draw (trace) onto cookies. The Google Nexus 7 tablet is lightweight and the perfect size for it, and I’ve downloaded the free drawing App, Artist’s Eye. Will update you on that one. If you’ve already tried it, would love to hear about your experience in the comment section.

I can definitely tell you – the tablet has already become my favorite device. It’s much easier to carry around than my laptop, and is useful in many more ways than I’ve pictured here (browsing magazines, books, watching movies, listening to music and e-books etc.).

I’ve even already bought a case which fits the tablet and Moleskin notebook perfectly, so that I can pop it in my purse and bring it everywhere I go. It’s super cute and handmade by Lindsey Cheney of The Pleated Poppy. You can check out her shop here. She also has awesome posts on home decor, crafting tutorials and fashion. One of my favorite blogs!

    I saw this feature on the Evernote website a few weeks ago, but haven’t been able to find one near me! This would be an awesome prize for a fanatic list and note maker like myself 🙂
