One ereader feature that’s always been important to me is note taking, and more importantly getting the notes off the ereader. I found a new way to do that with the Kindle.
I just came across an app called Notescraper. It only works on a Mac, unfortunately, so I haven’t tried it. But the good news is that it’s up to version v0.4. Here’s how Notescraper’s developer describes it:
Its purpose is to export the notes and highlights you save while reading a Kindle ebook to your local computer so you can organize the information in some other form. Note: It doesn’t take the notes and highlights from the Kindle device directly, but rather from kindle.amazon.com. Further note: You need a Mac for this.
You’re probably wondering why we don’t just use the clippings.txt file. Well, last I checked that file didn’t differentiate between ebooks. Also, I’m betting that Notescraper extracts each note or highlight separately instead of into one file.
P.S. Is that the only to get notes off the Kindle? I ‘d really like to hear about any others.
