Most apps–here’s a list of some apps and how they export–will do at least one of three things:
3) Print to AirPrint

What You Will Need: Apps that are webdav or GoogleDrive friendly.
First, find your Evernote incoming email address. It’ll look something like [username].email@example.com. The address is located under Account Info in the desktop versions of Evernote, under Settings in Evernote Web, and in the Sync tab of Evernote for iPhone. We recommend adding this email address to your address book or contact list.
Next, try emailing something into Evernote. In the subject line of your email, write the title of the note as you want it to appear in your account. In the same subject line, add one or both of the following:
- Use @ for notebooks: Use an @ symbol followed by the name of your destination notebook
- Use # for tags: Use a # symbol followed by the tag or tags you wish to assign. You can have multiple tags just make sure each one starts with an #
For example, Subject: Grandpa’s Marbles Draft #1 @DigitalStoryDrafts #studentname
This would create a note titled Grandpa’s Marble Draft #1 in the DigitalStoryDrafts notebook, tagged with studentname.
Here’s what the GoFileDrop Freemium looks like:
What You Will Need: A free account with GoFileDropFreemium, Evernote, and/or GoogleApps for Education Docs/Drive. I don’t recommend Dropbox for school settings.
5) Print to a File.
This fifth approach isn’t all that great, so I’m not giving it credit in the title of this blog entry. There’s not a lot of low-cost options for printing from an iPad app and saving that product (e.g. PDF) somewhere you can get it. That’s why apps like Print Central ($8.99+in-app upgrade of approx $2) and Printopia ($20) are raking in the dollars. I don’t have a good solution that is no-cost here, and that’s bad news for some apps that ONLY can be printed.
The only workaround is to take a screenshot on your iPad. To do that, simultaneously hold down the On/Off switch at the top of the iPad, then a half-second later, press the round Home button. You’ll hear a “camera click” and the picture will be saved in your Camera Roll. At that point, you can take the image and use any of the other approaches shared above to get the image off your iPad.
As you might guess, I’ve written about this topic several times. I keep searching for the easiest ways to get this done and explain it. Writing how helps me grasp the concepts involve. I hope that readers won’t get tired of my searching for the best approaches to explain this!
