The first two are conventional ways of learning something. But, the last two are more modern ways to learn.
Is Glasp The First To Do This?
Basically, there are many apps before Glasp to do the job the same way. I can remember that day when I found pocket and Evernote web clipper. It was life-saving for me and many people around the world to save an article and read them at a suitable time.
The time has changed and many apps like Raindrop, Notion Web Clipper, Dynalist Companion, Upnote Web Clipper, etc do the same job. But the problem is no one invented or given you a new way of doing the same thing.
Here, Glasp to rescue us. This web clipping app has the most modern features, easy to use, and does not make your web clipping boring.
Using this highlighter and web clipper you can see other people’s web clippings and read them too. As a result, you will find more convenient and useful information.
I believe this is the best way to take notes and clip from the web.
How You Can Benefit From It?
Let’s talk about myself. I have been using this wonderful web clipper for about 50 days now, and I am amazed at how fast it works. I am shocked, surprised, and amazed. According to my belief, you will also receive those useful benefits from Glasp.
Now, The question is “What benefits I am getting from Glasp ?”. I believe, it is time to rethink all of your digital tools. For example, Note-taking apps like Evernote or OneNote, or web Clippers like Evernote web clipper, Pocket, Onenote web clipper or writing tools like MS Office or other writing apps, etc. all are old and has a large user base.
But, if any of them fail to coup up with user needs, they will go extinct. The same thing happens with Evernote. Now, most of note-takers are shifting from Evernote to the modern note-taking app which has bi-directional linking capabilities, or other important features.

Who Can Use Glasp?
This is a big question for you and me. Who can use Glasp? Most of the web user use web clipper like Evernote web clipper, Pocket, Notion Web clipper, Raindrop, OneNote web clipper etc. But, the truth is non of those apps will provide you so many features like Glisp. Let’s talk about who can use Glamps for their work and knowledge.
1. For Lawyer, Advocate, Attorney, Judge:
Hmm. Lawyers, Advocates, Attorneys, and Judges can take huge benefits from Glasp. Why? Because they are thinkers, motivators and socially aware people. They love to learn more from the web. But, it is not so easy to remember every word from an article.
Being a Lawyer, I know this difficulty very well. So, I used to clip my web pages or article using Evernote web clipper or Notion web clipper. But, When I found Glasp I get huge relief. Now, I do not clip the whole page but mark the most important part. As a result, this amazing app do the rest.
2. Doctors Who Love To Learn More:
Doctors are a lifesavers for every human. To save a life using their vast knowledge, they have to read and learn from others’ experiences. So, they try to read a lot of medical journals too.
Certainly, they can use another reference manager like Mendeley, Zotero or others. But, they will not provide total functionality like Glasp does. I believe this amazing app will help them to learn more from the web.
3. Content Creators For The World:
It is the time for content creators who create content for web like videos, blogs, etc. It is not so easy to gather more information and keep them in a single app.

The situation has changed to me and for many people around the world like me. When many people started using Glasp to highlight and clip web pages. I love this web clipper so much!
