How to use Scrapbook on the Samsung Galaxy Note 3

Samsung_Galaxy_Note_3_Scrapbook

Samsung has a new feature that debuted on the Galaxy Note 3, and it’s called Scrapbook. It’s actually quite useful. It allows you to save content into “Scrapbooks.” This can be a screenshot from an app, a Web page, or a YouTube video. When you grab a Web page, the link is saved along with it for future reference. You can also categorize your scrapbook with different folders and add tags and/or Notes to each item you have clipped.

To add something to your Scrapbook, just open Air Command by hovering your S Pen over the display and pressing the button on the S Pen. Choose the second option, Scrapbooker. Then draw a circle around the contents you want to save. You will then be given the opportunity to add tags and/or a Note as well as choose the folder you would like to add it to. When you are all set, just tap on the checkmark at the top right to save it. There is also an option to add an item to your scrapbook bypassing Air Command. Just press and hold the S Pen button and draw a circle on the screen and select Scrapbook. For whatever reason, it doesn’t grab as much information, but it will still capture the URL link. Lastly, you can sync Scrapbook to your Samsung account so it’s accessible on other devices.

    I really like using this is a way to save how characters look and locations for my writing.

      you’d do better using Evernote or Springpad for that (more flexibility). Scrapbook is a nice idea that’s not fully developed…

        What is wrong with you people? Who cares about Evernote? He says he likes this app. Deal with it.

        Evernote also has a retarded sync limit just less you pay. This app has no such limits and integrates fabulously with S Finder where you can search by tags and everything.

        Hardly under-developed. It’s really useful and a huge value for those who need this sort of functionality. If you’re a heavy user it will save you $60/year over Evernote.

        If you need more long-form note taking, then one note is superior to evernote, anyways, if we’re playing title for tat.

    is it possible to add more than one youtube video or link? or is it set to be only able to save one of each?

    • Meeimei

      I wonder that too… does anyone have the answer?

    Utterly useless crap. When there is a universal way to to take content out of the scrapbook into most applications like a clipboard I will pay attention.

    I don’t understand why the app doesn’t let us save a full webpage. Not sure if I’m doing anything wrong, but when I used the air-command, selected the scrapbook option and draw a circle on the whole screen, it only saves that portion as an image instead of a full webpage.

      Scrapbook native app can Only save 3,100 words from a webpage. You could visit the link though

    • bree

      You can alway bookmark a web page to save it :)

    I just got my note for 2 weeks. Using scrapbook a lot but suddenly when I open the app it says unfortunately scrapbook has ended. I can save things but thats it. Tried it several times, restarted the phone 2 times, took the battery in and out. It just says the same … Does anyone know the problem?
