You’re scouring the web in search of inspiration for your next blog post, article, or term paper, when you come across a gold mine, a page that sends your mind racing with possibilities. As a good Evernote user, you immediately clip it to Evernote, so you won’t forget it. We just added a feature to the bookmarklet and Firefox extension, which ensures that your future self remembers why you clipped that page in the first page: adding a comment. Now, you can add a short comment as part of the clipping process. The comment will appear in the note, just above the clip.

Get the bookmarklet or Firefox extension here. You do not need to re-install anything if already have it.

Improved mobile web experience

Evernote Mobile Web, our mobile optimized version for web-enabled devices, gets a nice UI update this week. When creating and editing notes, the fields now extend to match the phone’s screen dimensions. No more small text boxes on your big screens. If you haven’t done so already, be sure to bookmark www.evernote.com/m on your mobile device.

    Fantastic! Is there a reason you can’t simply have a small text box always present in the pop-up rather than having to press add comment?

    The “add note” feature isn’t working for me… tried several times through the bookmarklet in firefox.

  • Rob Lewis

    So why is it that when I make a web clip, I always check the “remember me” box, but it never does?

  • Darius

    If it were added atribute target=”_self” to every link in Evernote Mobile Web, it would be much much more functional. It would be able to use this Evernote Mobile Web in Firefox sidebar, widgets, iframes and so on. Now every link just opens in new window.

    The comment feature seems to be missing.
    And there’s no entry for “comment” in the Evernote online help.

    As a Microsoft Vista Evernotes user I am very much feeling like a third class citizen. I use Evernote in a professional capacity and the ability to select the Evernote Folder /category / and add a note is VERY MUCH NEEDED. My folder is clogged with notes that I then need to sort through and manage. The time for that is in the act of clipping, not in the Evernote app!

    This is a very nice feature but it is oh, so slow. I use Google notebook and I am exploring Evernote to see if I want to move to it, but the web clipper is so slow it will make me stay where i am, or look for another suitable app.

      @zkusohbet Yes. Sign into you web account and click on Settings. When you scroll down you’ll see your Evernote email address. You can use that to email stuff into your account.
