Connecting iCloud Notes to Evernote

by Jason Spidle

Evernote offers a powerful feature set for keeping notes, but there isn't a simple way to keep it in sync with notes you save to iCloud. To sync these notes with iOS devices or a Mac, you need the third-party software IFTTT which can connect iCloud notes with Evernote. Once you configure the IFTTT service, every new note you create -- be it on your iPhone, iPad or Mac -- will be automatically saved to your Evernote account.

1

Tap the "Settings" icon on your iPhone's home screen.

2

Tap "Mail, Contacts, Calendars," select "Add Account," tap "Gmail," and then enter your Gmail account credentials. If you already have a Gmail account configured on your iPhone, simply select it from the "Accounts" section instead of tapping "Add Account."

3

Set "Notes" synchronization to "On."

4

Tap the "App Store" icon on your iPhone's home screen, search for "IFTTT," tap "Free," and then tap "Install App." Launch IFTTT after installation is finished.

5

Create a new IFTTT account with your username, password and email address, and then tap "Create account." If you already have an IFTTT account, tap "Sign In," and then enter your account credentials.

6

Tap the "Recipes" button, and then tap the "+" button to create a new recipe.

7

Tap "If," select "Gmail," and then select "New email labeled."

8

Tap "Continue," sign into your Gmail account, and then tap "Grant Access."

9

Type "Notes" in the label text box, and then tap "Continue."

10

Tap the "+" button, select "Evernote," and then tap "Create a note."

11

Tap "Continue," sign in to your Evernote account, and then tap "Authorize."

12

Tap "Finish" to save your IFTTT recipe.
