Hello Everyone,

I’m not sure if anyone has heard of the Evernote Smart Notebook by Moleskine but I’m pretty sure you probably would know what Moleskine is.

Well, in case you don’t know what Moleskine is, Moleskine is essentially a brand that encompasses a family of nomadic objects such as notebooks, diaries, journals, bags, writing instruments, and reading accessories. If you frequent bookstores such as Popular and Kinokuniya, you might have noticed Moleskine notebooks and diaries at the Stationery section.

So anyways, thanks to the folks from Working Unit and Moleskine, I was given a set of the Evernote Smart Notebook by Moleskine to try it and here are my honest opinions.

I personally find Moleskine products to be rather expensive but they do make great gifts for birthdays, anniversaries, so on and so forth. In fact, if you were found to be carrying Moleskine products around, people generally have a different impression of you [very much like how you would associate people whom carry products from Gucci, Louis Vuitton]. So, if you’re planning to get a gift maybe say for a tech-savvy executive, you might want to consider getting the Evernote Smart Notebook by Moleskine.

They also gave me this pen to write with but I didn’t quite like the feel of it. I would still prefer my usual ballpoint pen.

If you were to ask me how practical it would be for you to get an Evernote Smart Notebook by Moleskine, I would say its 50-50. The reason why I would say its 50-50 is because if you’re a person that brings your smartphone [iPhone/Galaxy S3/any other brand] or tablet [iPad/Galaxy Tab/any other brand] around, you are very likely to jot down your personal notes using your mobile devices and organise your notes using the applications that you’ve downloaded onto your mobile devices; hence, you probably would not have the need for a physical notebook and pen to jot down your notes. But, if you’re someone like me whom still prefers doing things the old-fashioned way and enjoys writing your ideas on paper, then getting a physical notebook is something that is extremely practical.

Ok, if you belong to the first category of people that I mentioned, then this is one application that you have to download [available on Google Play and App Store], “the Evernote application“. I personally find the Evernote application to be extremely useful in organising my notes and in fact, you can do a whole lot of other wonderful things such as sharing your notes with other people conveniently and carrying out simple word processing with the Evernote application. The best part is, the application is free. However, if you sign up for the premium which cost USD$5 a month, you can get a wider range of benefits which you can find here –> http://evernote.com/premium/

If you belong to the second category of people that I mentioned, then you might want to consider getting the Evernote Smart Notebok by Moleskine because it has a rather chic and stylish front and back cover design and it is designed to work seamlessly with the Evernote application. Because of the Evernote rules and Evernote squared page styles in the notebook, it allows the user to digitally capture a clean image. Not only that, the Evernote Smart Notebook by Moleskine comes with the Evernote-ready Moleskine Smart Stickers that allows you to sticker-tag the pages of the notebok so that when you capture a page with the Evernote application, the Smart Sticker icons become searchable, digital tags that can make it easy to keep your ideas organised and to synchronise your digital and analog workspaces. The best part is, every purchase of the Evernote Smart Notebook by Moleskine comes with a 3 months Evernote application premium subscription.

At the back of the Evernote Smart Notebook by Moleskine, it tells you how you could use the notebook to your advantage.
