Thanks for the article - this seems to be best way to webclip on iOS at the moment, albeit it does take a bit of work to set up. Dolphin Browser for iPad is currently working on integrating Evernote Web Clipping. It'll make the process of web clipping on tablet/mobile a lot easier!

You can arrange your screen to want you want to clip and take a snapshot of your entire screen by pressing the On/Off button and then the Home button. It will save the screen shot to camera roll. You then go back to you Evernote note and press then logo that looks like a picture. It will bring up your photo stream and your screen shot should be there. Click it and it's transferred to your note

Thanks for your easy to follow instructions. Web clipping to Evernote from my iPad has now been made easy! The best thing about finding simple elegant solutions for storing and retrieving information is how much is frees us up to spend brain power on creative pursuits instead of administrative ones. These little things make the world of difference.

Seems like this has broken with the switch to Oauth. Any ideas?

Yes there is something bad going on there. Here's what I can observe:

1) after signing in I receive an error / maintenance page ( http://evernote.com/maint-shard.php )

2) however if I try using the Clip to evernote bookmarklet again I find that I was actaully signed in and can create clips.

So you should still be able to use the product while the experience is confusing.

We will fix this within short.

So I guess this is more than just a "broken link" issue, correct?

Any update on this? I was seeing this problem as recently as yesterday?

This issue of the ipad safari webclipper for evernote, that once worked and now seems not to, remains unsolved, despite the assurance from an evernote employee in this forum that it would be dealt with quickly. How are things going with this?

The capacity to maintain a synched set of research notes organised by topic and using web clippings is a major interest of anyone who researches using the web. Evernote, by being cross platform, has a lead, even though there are other web clipping systems. This is a really silly thing to drop the ball on if you want to stay ahead. Especially since, like probably most people with an iPad, that is the device I use most often for my routine research and clipping.

Also worth noting, I usually access materials via regular reading of RSS feeds for which I use various services to access my google reader feeds (eg Feedler). These often have their own browser windows that open when you click to read a story. If I were Evernote I would put effort into enabling clipping within these as well as Safari.

I used to use evernote as standard for all clipping but having lost the previously usable workaround ipad web clipper, my research work flow is much more complicated.

I cant believe there are so few of us using cross platform devices for web-researching that its not worth putting resources into this.

Hoping Evernote sorts it or it will be overtaken by someone nimbler.

YES!!! The fix from #2 worked! This was worth the trouble but I really hope Evernote will get this worked out for the sake of all the poor souls who haven't found this forum. This is a really big thing. Without a clipper, you may as well not use Evernote.

Indeed. Did not realize the Snippet had been recently updated. Now works again

Still seeing this issue today on the iPad when trying to utilize the clip to Evernote workaround provided above.....so what does "we will fix this within short" mean in terms of an actual timeframe? The reply was posted Nov 12.....two months is past my definition of "short".

If the method above is still broken, there are other ways to clip in iOS. For example, iCab Mobile browser has a "module" that clips to Evernote (amongst many other useful features). I usually forward articles to Evernote from Safari either by email or by saving them to Pocket and from there to Evernote. In most cases, this renders the article pretty well. It also works from RSS readers, provided they have email and Pocket sharing options. The articles end up in my default notebook and I can assign tags and notebook from there. There are also some 3rd party clipping apps, as reviewed here:

Low tech version:

Take a screenshot (home-power). Open the picture that it created and send to your evernote email address (found in your account summary.) subject can be "<note name> @<notebook name> #<tag name>

I found this the only way to clip pages from magazines that I read on nextIssue. The created note is very clear and readable.

You could always upload to Pocket, then import from Pocket to Evernote.  I've done this with a few articles on my iPad and seems to work well, although has a few too many clicks to be as efficient as it could be.
