Evernote and Eye-Fi Open Up New Possibilities for the Digital CameraDigital Snapshots Containing Text Can Be Instantly Captured, Synched and Made Searchable Across Desktops, the Web and Mobile Phones (December 10, 2008)
MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA and SUNNYVALE, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 12/10/08 -- Evernote and Eye-Fi today announced a partnership to transform the digital camera into an essential tool for combating information overload and helping people remember everyday details. Users of Eye-Fi's wireless SD memory card can now automatically upload photos from their digital camera directly into their Evernote accounts, where images containing printed or handwritten text will be indexed and made searchable.
Evernote, a service designed to help individuals remember everything, adds the images to the user's collection of notes and memories and makes them available on their desktop, the Web or a mobile phone, where they can be searched and organized.
"Evernote helps consumers capture and search for anything they want to remember from their real and digital lives -- from business cards and white board notes, to wine labels and receipts," said Phil Libin, CEO of Evernote. "There has never been a simpler way to get high-quality images into Evernote than with a point-and-shoot digital camera. It literally takes one step: snap the photo and Eye-Fi does the rest automatically."
Beginning today, users can benefit from the speed and simplicity of uploading hi-resolution photos through Eye-Fi and tap into Evernote's convenience of searching and cataloging the images. Now, no extra steps are required between taking a picture and having it become automatically searchable through Evernote.
"Eye-Fi aims to make it easier to capture and share life's memories," said Jef Holove, CEO of Eye-Fi. "Now we're helping people use their cameras to capture everyday information they want to remember. The combined power of Eye-Fi and Evernote means that now anyone who owns a digital camera can have a photographic memory."
Eye-Fi's products range from $79-$129 and can be purchased at Apple Retail Stores, Best Buy and major online retailers. Users can subscribe to Evernote at www.evernote.com. For more information, please visit www.eye.fi/evernote.
