    Hi all,

    I was wondering if anyone knew of a good way to scan my handwritten class notes (preferably with my iphone), and then convert them to PDFs to view on my iPad.

    thanks alot!

    With that you take a photo on iphone, and its automatically synced with evernotes servers.

    On the ipad it will be "instantly" available.

    If I understand you correctly, you have handwritten notes on letter sized paper that you want to convert to PDF and then read on your iPad.

    Assuming that you have a Mac:
    - Take pics of your notes with your iPhone.
    - Import the pics to your Mac.
    - Open with the pics with Preview.
    - Print each pic to a PDF file.
    - Move the PDF files to your iPad via GoodReader or similar app.

    Scan it the same way you would on any computer and then email it to yourself?

    My workflow for what you're asking currently like this.

    Scanner Pro app on iPhone. It uses the iPhone's camera to capture docs, whiteboard, business cards, receipts etc. You can add additional pages until you're done. You can crop, select colour or greyscale, allows you to adjust brightness and contrast. Once you're done, the PDF can be saved in the app, export to camera roll, email, send to iDisk/WebDAV, Dropbox, Print, Evernote, Google Docs.

    On the iPad, I grab the PDF from Dropbox. :cool:
