Use IFTTT to automatically save content to Evernote

What is If This Then That?

If This Then That (IFTTT) connects two services of your choice to create an automated flow called a task. Services include things such as your email account, calendar, photo services, phone calls, and Evernote. Tasks consist of Triggers from one service resulting in an Action for another service. You can create your own Task, or use an existing Recipe created by other IFTTT users. There’s a near-infinite number of ways to use IFTTT.

What can you do with IFTTT?

Here are some popular recipes for using Evernote with IFTTT:

Save important emails by starred messages in Gmail: Don’t miss important emails; send them straight to your Evernote account for followup or reference.
