Evernote 5 for iOS doesn’t support creation of note links, but…

I use Evernote note links a lot and I think I don’t need to explain why.

Unfortunately, you can’t create them with the iOS version of Evernote. But there may be a workaround…

Inspired by @simplicitybliss post on adding Evernote notes to OmniFocus, which refers to the original post by Asian Efficiency, I started tinkering with that AppleScript.

It follows the same principe as explained in the post by Asian Efficiency. I use a tag “@link” for a note I have on my iOS device, wait for Lingon 3 to kickoff the AppleScript (which I run every minute) and synchronize again on my iOS device. And voila, the note link is added to the note at the end.

The script itself does an Evernote sync before and after the note links are created to ensure it works and it removes the “@link” tag from the note to avoid adding it twice.

The downside: you need a Mac running as some kind of server.

You can find the script here.

I didn’t bother to remove the original comments from the Asian Efficiency script, I leave that up to you.
