Evernote Clearly

When I am searching the web I always come across blog posts, or other online news articles that I want to read later. But the problem is how do I save them so I can go back to them, especially if it is something I want to keep and am afraid the website may take down the information. For that I save them information in Evernote, but there is an easy and fast way to do that, it is called Evernote Clearly.

Now I know there is another, more famous way of using Evernote Web Clipper, which does send pages and articles to your Evernote, but Clearly has the same functionality and does one thing Web Clipper doesn’t it, it removes all the unwanted ads and extra information from the page before you put it in Evernote. This way the article goes back to being straight text, and once that is done it makes it much nicer to put into Evernote.

Basically the way Clearly works is you install it, and then login to your Evernote account so that it can clip the pages after you convert them. The desk lamp icon will sit in your browser, when you go to a page you want to clip, click on the desktop lamp. It will then show the page with just basic text and all the other ads and junk removed. You can then click on the Evernote elephant icon to clip the article into your Evernote, so that you get the nice, clean stripped down version Evernote Clearly has created.

So if like me you like to save that occasional article, you may want to give Evernote Clearly a try. Like I said, I used to use Evernote Web Clipper, but I prefer clearly as I can get the article without all the extra ads and html formatting. And since it does that same clipping function as Evernote Web Clipper, why not use one tool to do two jobs.
