This tutorial will take you through the steps.

We will need to create a bookmark, save the bookmark in the Bookmarks Bar,  and then go back and edit the bookmark to include the JavaScript code for the Evernote bookmarklet. 

Prepare your iPad & open this tutorial in mobile Safari on your iPad

  • 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.
  • Now copy the code in the section (See below: Evernote bookmarklet code)

  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.
