Notes on the apps

Save to Notion

  • It doesn’t use the official API.
  • It can read all your Notion data.
  • You must add the current page before highlighting.
  • You must choose between every page being added as a bookmark, or every page having its full contents added.
  • Review by Thomas Frank.


  • No images or bullet points, and line breaks can misbehave.
  • Firefox bookmarklet has CORS issues.
  • Designed around collaboration.
  • On the BASB resources list.

Readwise export to Notion

  • Minimal customization.
  • Expensive if using only for web highlights.

Official computer app

  • Can use a scripting tool like AutoHotkey for a global add note shortcut
