Viewing web content on your iPod

A few days ago, a tip explained how to get text onto your iPod. This AppleScript is a slightly modified version that gets the contents from a website and adds the text as a note onto your iPod. I usually use this in the morning when I get to work. I wake up and I don't have to check what's new on news site before leaving for work. With my iPod hooked up, I just load the Script and I am good to go. It can be programmed in Automator in this manner:

1. Open Automator
2. Choose "Get Specified Text" from the TextEdit library
3. In the "Get Specified Text" text box, enter the URL of the website you want to copy to your iPod
3. Add "Get Text from a Webpage" from the Safari library
4. Add "New iPod Note" from the iTunes library
5. Save the plug-in into the Script Menu

You're now good to go. This great tip doesn't work optimally with every website. Some websites rely too heavily on pictures to be understandable as an iPod note. The best way of using this is to try a lot of different websites to see how well it performs.

If you need additional help with Automator, I suggest you take a look at the two previous Automator tips.

See you tomorrow.
