Talk about a perfect match…
The latest release of the very popular Associated Press application for iPhone lets you effortlessly clip AP articles into your Evernote account. Here’s the scenario: you’re browsing through the latest local, national, and international news on your iPhone when you stumble across a story about a man caught smuggling 91 lobsters in his jacket. You think to yourself, “I must get this into Evernote so that I’ll have it forever, but how?”
Why this is cool
The AP Mobile application allows you to access enormous amounts of news and information whenever you’re out and about. Thanks to the integration, you can now save any article and access it later from any version of Evernote that you use —mobile, desktop, or web. Also, all articles clipped from AP Mobile retain their source URL, so you can always go back to the original or easily share it with friends.
How it works
First, make sure that you have both the AP Mobile and Evernote applications installed on your iPhone. Next, follow these four simple steps:
- Launch the Associated Press app
- Choose on an article
- Tap on the “Forward” arrow
- Select Evernote
How they did it
The Associated Press used the Evernote API along with new functionality available in the iPhone 3.0 software that allows different applications to interact with one another right on the iPhone.
