Cookies are pieces of data stored by your web browser that websites & applications like Airstory rely on to quickly remember and retrieve information, such as your user session. This streamlines your experience, and helps Airstory communicate with third-party integrations such as Evernote.

If you're experiencing problems importing data into Airstory from a third-party such as Evernote, or the Chrome Researcher extension won't load, it's likely that your browser is blocking the reading/writing of third-party cookies.

NB: If you already have third-party cookies enabled, try disabling your browser extensions 1-by-1 to see if another extension is causing a conflict with Airstory or the Researcher. Any 'Ad Blocker' extension will likely prevent the Researcher from injecting HTML into the page, which will produce the frustrating, persistent spinner.
