What’s the toughest thing to remember? For me, it’s websites. Everyday, I visit tons of sites: blogs, shopping, news, recipes, and travel. It’s too much. I’ve actually stopped bookmarking because it’s so hard to find anything in the sea of links, and when I do go back, the page is often gone or changed. Since Evernote is a single place for all of your memories, (websites you visit are memories too, you know) we thought we could do better.
Introducing, the new Evernote Web Clipper, which gives you the ease and simplicity of bookmarking, but more importantly, also gives you context by saving the text, images, and links, including the source URL, right into your Evernote account. Once the page, or part of a page, is saved into your account, you can tag, organize, search, browse, edit, and remember it forever.
I use the web clipper when I’m researching vacations, looking for a good recipe, or when I run across neat technical articles. With a single click, I have the content saved. So, even if the page goes away, my memory of it doesn’t.
Most importantly, because the web clipper is part of Evernote, you can have more than just copies of web pages. You can remember all sort of stuff such as, pictures, personal notes, doodles on napkins, and anything else, all accessible online, offline, and from your phone.
Here’s a short video where Andrew shows us how to install and use the web clipper:
Here’s another idea. Find a recipe online and clip it into Evernote. Then, when you’re at the store, bring the note up on your phone using Evernote Mobile Web: instant shopping list.
A little technical detail: You don’t need to reinstall the bookmarklet (the little browser button that says “Clip to Evernote”) if you already have it. It automatically upgrades to the latest version. Otherwise, go on and install it. Just drag or add the green clipper button below to your link bar.
Now, get out there and start clipping!
