    Thanks for the detailed list. Another great tool is It quickly changed my workflow for saving the articles that I really want to use. (Plus it’s a huge relief from evernote guilt – EN is great for searching when I know what I want to find, but it’s just not designed for learning new ideas.) Britely is still in beta (invite only for now) and I think you can sign up for an invite on their site.
