Use Whitelines App when you want to * capture * save * share, or * continue working with your Whitelines notes! The App removes the background, so all that remains is your writing or drawing over a white background.

Whether you take notes for yourself or to share them with somebody else, Whitelines App will help you do both! Whitelines App will capture your note automatically when it detects all four corner codes on the paper and that light conditions are good enough, and then adjust the image to make it useful to you.

Whitelines App is perfect when you want to:
● Review your notes on the bus before an exam
● Share notes from a class with a friend
● Include a handmade drawing in a presentation
● Post an illustration or note to Instagram

1. Tap the camera icon to enter capture mode. Whitelines App will capture your note automatically when it detects the full page (including all four corner codes), with the logo at the bottom of the page. Whitelines App detects, capture, and straightens your note out, and also removes the background automatically.
2. If you have several pages of notes that you’d like to save as a stack, simply stay in the capture mode and continue capture pages one at a time. Of course, you can also save your notes to existing stacks in the app.
3. Save, Use, and Share the Notes

Choose if you’d like to save your note locally on your phone, or if you’d like to share it–with yourself or with somebody else. You can share your note with any app that processes image files, such as WhatsApp, Instagram, OneDrive, OneNote, Google Drive, Evernote, Dropbox, Line, Facebook installed on your phone. Tick the boxes on the paper to email the note or save it to Dropbox or Evernote.

Two words: Game. Changer.

Whitelines products are so ingenious!! This is perfect for anyone who wants to move toward digital note keeping but still prefers to hand write and illustrate their notes. As an avid class note taking doodler I am beyond impressed with the subdued color of the paper, the less distracting white lines, the quality of the notebooks, and the ease of scanning, uploading and saving my notes. I would absolutely recommend these products and app to anyone regardless of age, education or profession. ☺️👍🏾👍🏾

In love!!

This notebook brand is absolutely my go to when I copy and revise my notes. The soft lines help me focus when I’m studying and the ability to have my notes accessible on my phone is so incredibly helpful. The app is super easy to use and the scans are great quality. I love being able to study anytime and send my notes to classmates who need help! I highly recommend whitelines to anyone looking for a notebook with good quality and a user friendly app to scan their notes!!

The Reviewing Anymous ,

Great for character reference sheets, but could use a version for iPad.

Ive only been using this for a while, but I love it. So far I’ve made a few ref sheets for my characters and I’m easily able to transfer it to my photos.
The only problem I’m having with this is when I’m trying to take a picture and the app zooms out (on my iPad in the bottom right hand corner there’s an option that zooms the app if it’s meant for phones, like Instagram and Amino), making it harder for me to see. Other than that, this is a great app.
