How is that different from just copying the selected text into Evernote? Is it just that it adds the date and URL?
I have it so when I favorite something in Pocket, the entire article is saved to a specific evernotebook. This is only for the very best items though. For most, I just save some passages. But the sharing feature for sending only selected passages to Evernote has been broken in Pocket for awhile now, so I recently switched to Instapaper.
