Despite all it’s foibles Evernote remains one of my most used apps and being able to link to it from elsewhere, such the task app I use, adds enormous benefit.
At one point you used to be able to generate links that when clicked would open up in the desktop app, these started evernote://. At some point these were lost and the link generator in the client only returned http:// links meaning that the request opened in the web site app. Problem with this is that it is slower and I usually have to authenticate again to get access.
I discovered last week that it is still possible to generate the old style links – what Evernote calls a “Classic Note Link” and I call a “Useful Note Link”. To get this link right click on the note in the note list and then hold down the Alt/Option button and you will see the label change from “Copy Note Link” to “Copy Classic Note Link”. Select and bingo you have an old style evernote:// link which opens in the desktop app.
