How to Create an Evernote RSS Reader: Step By Step Tutorial

Evernote RSS reader 1Learn how to use app integrations to create an Evernote RSS Reader with these simple steps.

With Google’s imminent cancellation of Google Reader due in July, many business users are left with an information disconnect in their knowledge management systems. An RSS reader helps info-savvy business professionals to quickly scan headlines (RSS feeds) on any given topic, drawing on business websites, industry blogs and keyword alerts. How will you be able to keep on top of all of this information now?

On the other hand, there is probably an information disconnect in your knowledge management systems already. Perhaps you have been using an RSS reader to scoop up the latest information and industry data, and an app like Evernote to record your notes, research and new ideas. This can create an information gap as the info you come across in your RSS feeds fails to be added to your note-taking system. You can remember reading that great data point – but where exactly?

So how about combining your RSS reader with your note taking so that Evernote can be a central knowledge management hub for your business?

This tutorial will show you how to use our Evernote/RSS integration to turn Evernote into an RSS reader, and gives you hints on how to store your timely industry information so that it is always accessible. Continue reading
