We will need to create a bookmark and then go back and edit the bookmark to include the JavaScript code for the Evernote bookmarklet. The steps that we will be following are similar to the other tutorials on this website – only we will be inserting the code for Evernote.

We will complete the following steps via the iPad.

Prepare your iPad & open this tutorial in mobile Safari

  • From your iPad, go to “Settings” and tap on “Safari.” Set Always Show Bookmarks Bar to “ON.” Set JavaScript to “ON.” Set Accept Cookies to “From visited.”
  • Next, open the Safari app and open this current page (go to lorenzocaum.com and search for “Evernote” and select the tutorial for the iPad).
  • Now copy the code in the section (Evernote bookmarklet code)

Create a temporary bookmark in mobile Safari

Next, tap on the share icon (square with a right arrow) at the top of your Safari page and tap “Add Bookmark.” Ensure that it will be saving to the “Bookmarks Bar” and then hit “Save.”

Update the temporary bookmark with the code for the bookmarklet

  1. Now tap on the bookmark icon (open book) to pull up your bookmarks. Tap on the “Bookmarks Bar” folder. Then tap “Edit” in the top corner of your window.
  2. Select the bookmark that you just created. Change the name to something of your choice – perhaps ‘Evernote’ or ‘Evernote Web Clipper’.
  3. Next, erase the URL shown and paste the bookmarklet code for Evernote (press and hold, then release, then tap “Paste”).
  4. Hit “Bookmarks Bar” located in the bottom top left corner to go back. Tap “Done” located in the top right corner. Tap the bookmark icon to make it disappear.

Those are all the steps! You’ve now installed the Evernote bookmarklet on your iPad.

    A most clear, step-by-step and patient video guide! I could set up the Evernote with no frustration/anxiety! The only error I made was saving the page first as Bookmark, instead of Bookmark Bar.

    Thank you, Lorenzo!

    I was going to add that it’s always been easier to email clips to evernote on mobile. Add your evernote email address to your contacts. Highlight and copy something, email to evernote, paste in the clip. If you’re in Safari you can also email from the reader view, which will email the whole webpage as the body of the message without having to copy and paste.

    For iOS users using chrome who have been waiting for a bookmarklet, I had been copying the code from the bookmarklet I created in Safari (simply go to edit the bookmarklet once installed for Safari and select all, copy) and edit an existing bookmark previously created in chrome and past the code to the URL. This worked similar to Safari with one exception you would select the web clipper book mark in chrome in a new tab, copy that URL to the page you want to clip and wa-la, it was clipped. Suddenly today it was not working – not really sure what changed as I haven’t updated an yaps in the last 24 hours. But, I copied the code from here and created a new book mark in the same way. It works a bit different since it opens it from the online app and clips it there, but it’s actually a bit mor efficient! Hope it works for others!
