As I shared in this blog entry, as well as this one which included a response from the Zite CEO, I was a bit disappointed in Zite 2.0. When they updated to their latest version, I was no longer able to curate content in one step to Evernote.
The new workflow takes advantage of Pocket, which enjoys wide support on iOS devices.
Pocket is integrated into over 317 applications across many platforms you may already use.This is because Pocket has an open API that allows users and developers to create their own Pocket applications, integrate them into their existing apps, and share them with other Pocket users.
The Pocket platform is host to 11,220 user created applications, 317 of which have been released publicly in this app directory.Essentially, while viewing content in Zite or Flipboard, I click on the share button and choose to Read Later or select which tool I want to use to share with...I choose Pocket:
This allows me to select a few items in fairly quick order, until I get a list:
Clearly, which I can't use since I do most of my reading on my iPad or Android phone. As you can see from the list above, once I have a list, I can work through these items individually and sort them into the appropriate Evernote Notebook (as shown in the image below):
So, the new workflow goes something like this:
- Read content in my news/RSS reader of choice.
- Share it to Pocket
- Sort items in Pocket to Evernote.
