Evernote for iPhone and iPad will now automatically find and scan your physical documents

Evernote 7.7 can now automatically capture documents, business cards, and more. When you enter Photo mode, Evernote will find and capture a document image without you needing to press a button. You can turn auto-capture off if you choose.

You can check out the full list of changes below:

New Camera functionality

  • Auto-capture: Point the camera at docs, whiteboards, and business cards
  • Business cards: Connect to LinkedIn to get more info when scanning cards
  • Review, crop, and rotate images before saving

More improvements

  • Suggested notes in Today widget
  • Mark reminder notifications as complete or snooze the reminder for an hour
  • Start a work chat from the home screen
  • Numerous bug fixes and improvements

Evernote was also recently updated with support for the Apple Watch. You can download Evernote 7.7 for iPhone and iPad from the App Store now.

  • In my experience, very fast, but with TERRIBLE auto enhancing (same to the latest version of Scannable).
  • It's very slow on an iPhone 4S.
  • From the headline it seemed that my iPhone would now roam around my office scanning docs. Sent from the iMore App
  • yeah, crappy title. lol Anything to get a click!
  • I've been using Evernote's stand alone Scannable app for a few weeks now, and it is by far the best scanning app I've come across on iOS. Still a bug or two when exporting to iCloud drive but that's it.
  • "automatically find and scan your physical documents"... It hasn't yet!!! Terrible title just terrible!
  • I'll stick with Office Lens.
  • Taking a photo in this update crashes my 6+ every time. Sent from the iMore App
  • Clarification - taking a photo in Evernote crashes Evernote. My phone doesn't crash. Sent from the iMore App
  • It's not working! I even set the documents right in front of the phone and it still didn't find and scan them. False advertising! Sent from the iMore App
