4 Reasons I Love My Rocketbook Notebook
My student Mike had a problem. He had taken lots of notes for an exam on his computer and meticulously organized them in Evernote. But he needed to switch to taking notes by hand. (Why? It’s way more effective for learning!) How could he use both typed notes in the cloud and hand-written notes together?
He ended up finding the Rocketbook Notebook and it solved all his problems. It’s a 21st-century notebook – it looks like a regular notebook, but functions as a digital one.
The Rocketbook notebook works like this. First, you take notes in your notebook any way you want. Then you scan your page (or pages) and send them to the cloud. Finally, just erase your original page and use it again! Seriously, it’s that easy.

4 Reasons I Love my Rockebook Notebook
1. Easy of Use
Both the notebook and the app are easy to use and pretty intuitive. I figured out how to name my files and set up cloud destinations really easily. The pictures of my notes were easily readable. I can even still use multiple colored pens and highlighters – just be sure to buy ones that work with the notebook!
The app can even transcribe my handwriting and allow me to search my notes for a keyword or phrase. My paper notebook just doesn’t have that function!
2. Organization, organization, organization
I love an organized digital drive and Rocektbook lets you create just that. Rocketbook works with Google Drive, Dropbox, Evernote, and OneDrive.You can give your notes a title and send them to not only a specific cloud service, but even a specific folder within that service.
Let’s say you have a folder in your Google Drive for each class. You could title your World History notes from today “Gunpowder Empires” and send them directly to your World History folder. Or you keep your planner pages in Evernote – send your page for this week directly to your Evernote Weekly Agenda folder.
There are a million ways to use the Rocketbook. I immediately thought of notetaking in classes, of course. But people use Rocketbooks for meeting agendas, planners, bullet journals, sketchbooks, and music writing. There are tons of ideas and templates – just Google it.
You can save lots of paper using a Rocketbook. My notebook came with 16 pages that I can reuse over and over again. No more using 5 lines and then throwing the entire sheet of paper in the trash!
Not ready to take the plunge yet? Download free PDF versions of the pages. Take notes on them as you would normally and then scan and upload them using the free app. If you love it, purchase away. If not, it didn’t cost you any money.
As for my student Mike, he took the rest of his notes by hand, scanned them, and was able to integrate them into his Evernote folders. And PS – he passed his exam! Hopefully, the Rocketbook notebook can work as well for you!
