We all know how awesome Moleskin notebooks are for keeping a gratitude journal or yoga journal, but the new Creative Cloud connected Smart Notebook takes journaling to a new level. Simply “draw on any page in this notebook, download the Creative Cloud connected Moleskine app from the Apple Store and use it to capture your drawing. The app uses the special page markings to help process and optimize the image as a JPG file before converting it to an SVG file.” Mind blown.
