Evernote Clearly

I have been a long-time user of Evernote. I recently came across another extension called Clearly (by Evernote). This cool little extension clears all the clutter from a webpage or article that you may be reading, allowing you to focus on the text.

I will show you two examples of an article I was reading. The first is without Clearly:

As you can see the page is fairly cluttered and full of ads and other content that distracts from the main article.

The second image is much cleaner.

There are four buttons along the right-hand side. They are (top-bottom):
  • Hide the overlay
  • Clip to Evernote
  • Show Themes (allows you to change coloring and text size)
  • Print
Being able to read an article without distraction is nice enough, but that last item, "Print" is the icing on the cake. With it, you could of course print the article, but also very easily create a PDF copy of the article with the same clean interface. The PDF includes the original URL for the article/page as a reference. This is a quick and easy way to get clean, readable articles for yourself or your students.
