OCR - scans reading



I use Evernote but totally feel the gap that there is no connction between my note taking app and calendar and reminders (also location based)

Hence I suggest you also add OCR as i can’t imagine scanning my stuff to a note taking app that would allow me to search through the scans :slight_smile: it’s a nightmare to live with all the papers around…

seems like you might have a great chance to merge:

  • Evernote (document scanning + OCR, notes after meetings
  • Apple Reminders (for location based reminders)
  • Things 3 (for awesome task organisation)
  • Google Calendar
  • share projects (with Trello approach - one account, multiple teams/boards with different emails associated - hassle free)

I keep fingers crossed as it’s A LOT of work :slight_smile:


OCR is also included in my workflow. 1 vote for this. :smile:


Not a super easy thing to add but we’ll see what can be done if enough people find it useful.

Yes – a +1 here for scanning (and OCR, why not!) functionality.


I’ve only just started using Agenda but I’m already so excited, I feel like all my needs are finally going to be met in one place.

I’ve tried and quit all the Apps mentioned by the OP because on their own they just don’t cut it.


I have changed my tune on scanning/OCR; I used the Notes scanning feature, and as I’ve transitioned to Agenda I have had to replace certain features (locked notes, scanning) with dedicated tools like 1Password and Scanbot. And I find this better in some ways than having a catch-all notes app.
