    Evernote has become a big part of my life, catching snippets from all sorts of places, from the desktop, MacBook and iPhone. Now, I'm wondering how to do same on my new iPad? It looks like it just doesn't happen quite the same... There's no 'Clip Page' or 'Save URL'?

    Unless I'm missing something?

    The iCab Mobile browser can save pages and selections to Evernote. You can also create a bookmark in Safari that will do this. The same technique should work in most browsers.

    Both are painfully slow.

    As for everything else, usind the multitask bar to switch between apps with copy&paste will work most of the time.

    Thanks for your reply... I followed the thread but got a bit lost; I think the whole speed and ease thing with Evernote is it's main attraction. I'll wait til it gets built in, surely it will happen?

    ICab Mobile looks good, so far and thanks for the suggestion. Any suggestions how to bring Bookmarks into ICab Mobile, please?

    A quick look shows two possibilities. There is a plug for Delicious Bookmarks, so you can use their online service. I have no idea what all you can do, since I don't have it.

    Under settings there is a DropBox setup. Once DropBox is set up you can import and export bookmarks to it. If you installed DropBox on your computer and then exported bookmarks to it from your favorite browser, you should be able to import them into iCab.

    I tested this using Safari on my iMac, and it worked. I did have to open iCab Mobile folder in DropBox (made when you set up DropBox in iCab), delete the old bookmarks file and rename my Safari bookmarks file to bookmarks.html.

    I believe that poet is referring to settings in iCab Mobile. Look for Dropbox on the left towards the bottom.

    No problem. I'm glad it worked out.
