    Not working for me on my iphone 5s. Followed your instructions explicitly. The JavaScript seemed to work and I was able to login to my evernote acct. But when I try to use the clipper and tap on “save” nothing is actually saved. The clipper dialogue just disappears and the note doesn’t show up in my evernote inbox. Also noticed that the “notebook” drop down menu doesn’t contain any of my notebooks. It’s just a totally empty drop down.

    Same problem here. No choice of notebooks and nothing saves.

    This worked on my iPad 3 but when I look at the saved note on my desktop version of Evernote I have only the URL of the page I clipped not an actual clip of the site.

    • There are two checkboxes on the Evernote clipper pop-up box. One checkbox is for saving the URL only, and another is for saving the whole page. You can check one box or both.

    Doesn’t work in iphone as the clipper screen is larger that the screen, save button is not seen.

      I have the same problem. Had it iOS6 and still in iOS 7. Also, you can’t scroll. The Clipper dialog box stays fixed on the screen while the page behind it scrolls.

      However there is a work around. Open the clipper andsign in. Make sure you’ve zoomed out as far as possible. Then turn your phone landscape and tap into the comment box (big one at bottom).

      The screen should resize a little, and then you will be able to scroll down to the save button.

      It is a little touchy. Sometimes I have to go back and forth a couple of times before I can see the save button. But i works. I’ve clipped this consistently.

        This does work for me, too, but not consistently. ~;-€

    Worked great, thank you! iOS 7 on iPad Air. Provides option to save just URL or full page. Gives choice of notebook. Saved in Evernote.

      Me, too. Works perfectly on my new iPad Air. Jonathan, thank you so much for making this available. Tags worked great and updated immediately to the Evernote iPad app and Evernote web.

  7. Thanks for this hack. It works swimmingly on my iPhone 5S.

    • Unfortunately I must take back my statement. This hack works well on sites that are not mobile-optimized. But for mobile-designed pages, the web clipper pop-up window takes up too much of the screen to use. (Landscape and portrait orientation modes both share this problem).

    Hi Jonathan. I am having the same as Fran. The popup window takes up all the screen and I cant clip the webpages. I hope you can come up with a fix. Thank you!

      I was having the same issue on my iPhone. Click your curser in the “add text” box. While the typewriter is up, you can actually get the pop up window to move around and expose the save button. It’s a little hard to explain but worked for me. Hope this helps.

      Yamaseta also explains this method above, but I found it only works for me when the typewriter is up.

    Just set it up on my iPad and it works great!

    (I don’t usually leave comments on blogs, but this workaround has saved me time and immense frustration, so thank you!)

    Is there any way to get around Evernotes logout after 1 week annoying functionality? I need to relogin almost every time I use this bookmarklet since it is not that frequent. Sucks big time.

    A great workaround. I’m using an iPad with iOS7.

    This is such a great thing when it works well. Unfortunately, more than 50% of the time the resulting popup is so enormous that it is larger than the screen itself, so that the “save” button is off screen and cannot be tapped. My efforts to “pinch” the popup smaller do not shrink the popup. Is there some fix, tweak, hack or workaround? This is the grail for me!!! Thanks…

    Is there any way to make the box smaller … It’s. Fantastic app but I can’t see the bottom buttons

    • People have reported varying success on this. Again, this is an unofficial bookmarklet hack deal, so YMMV.

    I followed these instructions and worked perfectly for a few months and then stopped working. Now when I try to clip, I get the screen as before but when I click on save it appears as if it’s saving, but does not save the clipped item. All that shows up in evernote is the heading & anything typed in the comment. I’ve tried re-doing, downloading evernote web clipper from evernote site, & none of that works. I see there’s an app for $2.99 but I have my doubts that will work. Did evernote intentionally disable this method of adding web clipper to iPad mini? If so, that sucks

    • Try to hit the main Evernote site in Safari on your iOS device and login via the web interface there. It can set a cookie that might be the problem. After logging in via Safari, try the clipper again and see if it works.

    Thank you very much. I like to keep track of articles I read in certain publications. I am hoping that this will allow me to click while reading on the iPad. My initial test with your site seemed to work fine. Thank you again.

    Dear Jonathan,
    I tried your hack, but the pop-up screen comes up blank. I’m on iPhone 5 with the latest version of iOS 7

    • In Safari, go to the Evernote site and login via browser. This seems to help set a cookie and login settings for folks.

    Anyone having problems with the size of the Evernote Clipper screen on iPhone 5S recently? Cannot reach the save button in the clipper, cannot navigate or adjust the clipper screen either, as it is the page behind the clipper reacting to adjustments.

      Same issue as Sebastian. Any workaround to get the screen size smaller or to be able to see the various text boxes and buttons

    Many thanks to the author for this! Just a note to any others who have two-factor authentication for Evernote enabled as I do, to get the bookmarklet working properly you may need to sign out of http://www.evernote.com in Safari, sign back in providing your access code, and then try the bookmark again. The first time I tried it, I signed in just via the bookmark but it didn’t trigger the authentication process properly.

    Once you get past that minor hurdle, works great!

    • Makes sense. Thanks for posting this for folks. I might update the post to and reference this.

    Hi Jonathan,
    Works perfectly on my iPad Air but I get the oversized box problem on my iPhone. Tried you suggestion of logging into Evernote site and get the following message…”Sorry, Evernote Web is not supported on iPhone browsers”. Any further suggestion to get this to work on my iPhone?

    • Weird. I wonder if Evernote has changed something.

    Jonathan, you are a life saver, thanks so much! My Evernote webclipper HD has stopped working and crashes permanently. Going through your instructions I was a bit nervous when the web version of Evernote on my ipad said it was not supported and I had to open Evernote as app, but your workaround still worked, and thus perfectly. You made my month!

    Hi Jonathan,

    Thanks for this update. However, Evernote seems to have made this new web clipper obsolete. The first time I tried it, here is what Evernote told me when I tried to log on:

    “Sorry, Evernote Web is not supported on iPad browsers

    But we have an app for iPad! Download it here.

    Visit our Products page to explore Evernote’s other iPad apps.”

    Progress?

    Still, thank you.

    Best regards,
    Daniel Teague

    No worky… That’s at least consistent with all the EN posts. So, I wonder what’s different with those accounts that show this feature working….

    • Perhaps, they have pulled the plug on this.

    • Just deleted and reset on my phone. Worked. I no longer run Apple stuff, it ran fine on Android/Firefox. Perhaps, Evernote is blocking the user agent this for mobile Safari
