About Whitelines

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.

In our latest update of Whitelines App, we’ve made it a little more colorful, improved the resolution of the scans, and improved the management of Whitelines notes within the app.

● Improved design and user experience
● Search and sort notes

Does what it says it will do. Does it really well. I'm impressed. Renders a really crisp image. Easy peasy. I wonder if you have to have a decent phone with a decent camera on it to make best use of this app.
