Are you an avid reader and find yourself saving Web articles, research papers, or newspaper clippings to your Evernote account so you can browse them at your leisure? Consider checking out Evernote’s integration with Sony’s new PRS-T2 Reader, which lets you enjoy a great reading experience while taking advantage of the searchability of your Evernote account.
A better reading experience
Whether you are a student who needs to annotate research notes, a traveling professional who wants to catch up on in-depth news articles while at the airport, or a busy parent taking advantage of snippets of free time between drop-offs and pick-ups, the Sony Reader enables you to access and read the important content you’ve saved in Evernote at your leisure, on a device that is optimized for reading.
Once you’ve connected your Sony Reader with your Evernote account, the Reader will automatically sync your Evernote content to your device so you can access any article or post you’ve saved to your account and view it on a crisp screen. If you love being able to sit in your favorite chair and flip through physical pages, you’ll be pleased to know you can ‘turn pages’ with you finger by swiping across the page, recreating that feeling you love on the digital device.
Continue to add fresh content to your Evernote library with a simple click using Evernote Clearly and have it automatically sync to your Reader by managing settings in Evernote Clearly. For readers who want to save passages or add annotations, the integration also allows you to highlight excerpts of text and send notes to Evernote, so you can read and take notes at the same time.
How It Works
The Reader comes integrated with Evernote so all you have to do is click on Applications from the home page, click on Evernote Setup, and sign in with your username and password (the Reader must have a Wi-Fi connection). Next, select a destination notebook for content you want to download to the Reader and a notebook for uploading passages and annotations you want to save. To access the content in your destination notebook, simply go to Bookshelves on the homepage, and choose Evernote. There is also a sync button at the top to refresh, if needed.
If you’d like to save a passage or quote from an article you’re reading, use either your finger or the Reader pen to touch what you want to save for 2 seconds. A highlighting tool will appear so you can specify the text you want, highlight, or add a note. When done, choose Evernote from the Send To options.
