  1. Here is my workaround which is actually working better than evernote's native clipping. what i am doing on my android is that i'm saving anything i want from a mobile brower to pocket app. then when i go to my pocket application and share with evernote, it save the entire page in evernote not just the hyperlink. this is superior to evernote's android sharing app which tries to always creates a hyperlink. it's a two step process but much better than native evernote and should be how evernote mobile works.
  2. Now I partially retract my confirmation. DiveAlien is correct, the hyperlink is now a real hyperlink in the android app, but the synched note on evernote itself does not show up as a hyperlink -- you have to edit the note and append a carriage return -- then it becomes a true hyperlink. My wife would say this would be a 7/8ths job. although it does address my biggest gripe that there were no hyperlinks at all in the android app and now there are. come on evernote team -- please follow through to completion.
  3. confirmed: it does seem to be fixed in latest android update 5.8.1 that i downloaded last night. as noted -- you have to close the note and reopen the note to see the hyperlink finally. now if we can only get fully text notes when sharing in android rather than a hyperlink.
  4. thanks for reply gazumped. I understand the feature/bug conundrum. In this case the android client doesn't make it linkable even if you put a carriage return at the end of the text. That trick only works in the desktop client. so a urul address in my android client has to be copied -and that's not easy in android even with the nifty-dual-super-tiny-arrrows-that-you-have-to-be super-careful-with-to-highlight-only-the-url-text. then fire up the android browser and then cut and paste the url into the browser. do this with a few notes and you just give up. It is linkable if i send to my toodledo client, or my other note client or to an email so it's just an evernote/android conflict. now what is interesting is that i can share URLS from other apps to evernote on android and the url is a real link just not chrome nor reader. -- for all i know its a "bug" that google put in place just for evernote -- but even with googles fickle nature about playing nice in the sandbox that just doesn't make sense. i just don't know how this could be a "feature" as it defeats the purpose of the url.
  5. I searched the forum and saw a lot of questions that were closely related to my problem but doesn't seem to directly address my problem. I am using evernote on a nexus 4 android phone running android 4.2.2 on my phone -whenever i send a website to evernote via "share" either via google reader or via chrome on the android, i only get a text url -- not a blue hyperlink. So when i open the note in evernote either in on the phone or in evernote desktop in windows there is only url text -- not a hyperlink. Now if i edit the note in the desktop client and add a carriage return -- it turns into a proper blue hyperlink. But can't do this in the android evernote app. Adding a carriage return to the end of the url text doesn't create a hyper link . so i'm stuck on the andoird with unlikable addresses unless i edit them on the desktop which is annoying at the very least and a bug at the very worst. when i send the same website via share on the phone to any other app -- mail, todo list, etc -- it is a proper hyperlink, but the "share with evernote" always creates a text unlinkable url address. thoughts -- help?
