TEC #022 – How to web clip from the iPhone/iPad

Hello,

One of the most powerful Evernote feature is the ability to web clip an article from a web site. All the major browsers have plug-ins published by Evernote to do so, unfortunately such a thing does not exist for Safari Mobile on the iPhone or any other smartphone for that matter.

Here are several methods to web clip from your smartphone:

Personnaly I use Ever Web Clipper because it is faster to use (1 step instead of 2).

Note that this app is also available for Androïd here.

Until the next time, happy evernoting!

Update July 15th 2012: I have just tested another cool tool to clip (and not only web clip) from the iPhone, the app is called EverClip costs 0.99$ and is really cool. It works great and integrates flawlessly with iOS. Take look at the video which says it all:

TEC #021 – How to send article from iOS @Reederapp to @Evernote when offline

Hello,

In this podcast episode I explain you how to send an article from Reeder which is my iPhone RSS reader of choice to my Evernote account even if you are offline.

I do most of my reading of my RSS feeds deep down in the parisian subway system with no data access whatsoever while I commute to work.

Every morning before I leave home I launch the Reeder app on my phone so it can load all the articles including images on my phone before I head out to the subway. Sometimes I read an article I want to keep for future reference, here’s the methode I use to send it to my Evernote account even if I have NO data connection.

  1. share an article in the Reeder iPhone app
  2. choose the mail sharing option
  3. put your Evernote mail address as the To
  4. (optionnaly) add @notebook_name and #tag at the end of the subject

Whenever your iPhone will get the data connection it will send the pending message(s) automatically.

Of course this can be done with any iOS RSS reader app as long as you can share an article by mail (which most of them do if not all as it is a standard feature).

Until the next time, happy evernoting!

Pierre.
