{giveaway} jot, snap and share with ecojotCONNECT

ecojotCONNECTapp-ecojot journal

Amazing things happen when we write our thoughts and ideas on paper. It can be therapeutic. Ideas flow {and we can actually remember them}. Special moments and monumental milestones are jotted down and cherished. Feelings are shared.

Well, the classic and irreplaceable act of writing on paper is rising to meet technology with ecojotCONNECT, Ecojot’s free app that allows you to share your written thoughts, words and sketches with your friends, family and co-workers.

Think on paper. Share it with technology. We like it.

EcojotCONNECT is the brainchild of Ecojot founders, the brother and sister duo Mark and Carolyn Gavin, who established Ecojot in 2007. The idea behind it was to keep people writing, while being innovative in today’s ever-changing and technology-dependent society.

So, here’s the basic rundown. You jot down notes, ideas and sketches, then with the app, you position the phone over the ecojotCONNECT custom coded sheet of paper, and you snap your image. Then, you can enhance, edit and share via Evernote, e-mail and your favorite social media channels.

Yes, you have to use ecojot app ready notebooks, but if your going to jot down notes, why not write them in a beautifully designed and eco-friendly product? The app ready notebooks and sketch pads range from $9-$17 and are sold at ecojot. You can download the simple and user-friendly app for iPhone 5 here and Android here.
