Video: iPhone-optimized Notepads

Japanese stationery company King Jim is offering printed notepads [JP] specifically aimed at iPhone owners. The idea here is to make it easier to digitize, store and organize handwritten text for smartphone users, a concept King Jim calls “Shot Note”.

All that users need to do is to fire up the free Shot Note iPhone app, take pictures of their notes and let the app digitize and store the content in an iPhone screen-friendly format through OCR markers printed on the paper.

The text can then be organized in a number of ways and also be sent to your Evernote account.

In Japan, King Jim offers the notepads in four different sizes (for between $4 and $16).
