    I use Evernote app quite a lot.
    Is there any way I can make and save a web clip in Evernote on my IPad?

    I am fairly certain that clips can only be done of your PC or Mac and then will sync to your iPad.
    On your app, press more in the top index then places and you will be presented with a map with a red pin, press this and you can go to a tutorial page. Have a look here and it will explain everything. Hope this helps you.

    Of course you can! I wouldn't be an Evernote fiend if I couldn't. You can really harness the power of your iPad browsers by doing a little Google searching for iPad and bookmarklets which are JavaScript bookmarks that increase the functions you can call on. Here's how to add an Evernote bookmarklet.

    1. Open your browser to any page and save it as a bookmark.
    2. After you've created the bookmark, go back into bookmarks and choose edit.
    3. Change the name of the bookmark you just made to Evernote.
    4. Clear out the URL underneath the name and paste the following big batch of text into the URL box:

    javascript: (function()%7BEN_CLIP_HOST='http://www.evernote.com';try%7Bvar%20x=document.createElement('SCRIPT');x.type='text/javascript';x.src=EN_CLIP_HOST+'/public/bookmarkClipper.js?'+(new%20Date().getTime()/100000);document.getElementsByTagName('head')%5B0%5D.appendChild(x);%7Dcatch(e)%7Blocation.href=EN_CLIP_HOST+'/clip.action?url='+encodeURIComponent(location.href)+'&title='+encodeURIComponent(document.title);%7D%7D)();

    5. Make sure it's all there from JavaScript to ; without spaces. I had to add a space after "javascript:" because the forum converts it to a smiley!
    6. Either select text and then hit your new bookmark (or don't select to clip the whole page) and a box will open near the top of the page. The first time it will ask for your login credentials, after that you will see a clippings page with area for your title, tags, etc. Sometimes it takes a few seconds so be patient especially for large selections.

    Ok, I am jumping in just for curiosity. What is the purpose for this? Just put Evernote on my device and still understanding all of its use.

    Thanks,:eek:
    I will have a go and let you know how I get on?
    It would be so handy to do the web clips straight from the iPad rather than have to create them on the PC.
    I haven't had the IPad very long but I find it so versatile that it is making many aspects of my PC redundant.

    Thanks for that Guthrien, I couldn't find any reference to web clipping on the ipad in Evernote, I use the copy and paste method, although sometimes it doesn't work from Safari. I'm going to try this also.

    I am too although I've been using it for a while. Its a great note taking app and you can have it on your PC also. Web clipping lets you copy webpages from just a few lines to whole pages and URL's too and it goes straight to Evernote. Very handy app.

    Well you can use Evernote as an excellent normal notebook for all your writings and documents but it's a very diverse and powerful program. You can use it as your "everything" box where you keep anything you like or need from the Internet. It syncs across all the platforms you use, mobile or desktop. Where the clipping comes in is that it allows you to collect from your iPad as on any other device.

    One of the coolest things I like about Evernote is that you get your Evernote e-mail address. So, you can send pretty much anything to Evernote. I've got the address as a contact on my iPad (and my iPhone). Whenever I see something I want to see on a different iDevice, or work with on my desktop, I just mail it to my Evernote box. Since I have the new mail default to the Inbox in Evernote, I never lose them and can get to stuff on my leisure. You could also give out the e-mail for others to send you stuff.

    Once I discovered Evernote, I wonder why it took me so long to get to using it... :D. Very handy cross-platform service!

    Thank you guthrien and marilyn for the info regarding Evernote. I have both Evernote and Goodreader--and have wondered what the similarities/differences were. I use Goodreader to annotate PDFs which is very helpful, but have not played around with Evernote to see if it does the same. I will give your recommendations a try! Thanks again!
