The best ideas are printed. Of course, you can collect them by manual typing or by dictating them into your Napkin Collect app.

The easiest way is to use the OCR function, which is integrated with all newer iPhones.

Just open Napkin Collect, point the camera at the text passage, press insert text, and done. You'll find the thought tagged and connected in your inbox.
