via Apple App Store





Use your camera to bring eBook benefits to paper sources. That means you can prepare organized, searchable, copy-and-pastable excerpts and notes from hardcopy books, journals, and magazines.

★ Transcribe Highlights:
eHighLighter's OCR technology uses your iPhone camera to quickly record digital notes and highlights. Easily access these notes on your phone or any web-enabled device.

★ Manages Citations:
Create, manage, and export MLA, Chicago, or APA styled bibliographies. Instantly add citation information by scanning a book's barcode or searching by title/author.

★ Searchable Annotations:
Keep information organized with notes and tags. Sort and search highlights by tag or keyword.

★ Share:
Instantly share notes with other eHighLighter users or export to email, Evernote and Dropbox.

Writing out an entire quote can take minutes. Typing quotes in to your computer is a good way to organize, but adds even more time. With eHighlighter, you can transcribe quotes in just seconds. You can then review your highlights and notes in one organized, searchable place.
