I'm currently using Bookmark OS in Chrome but I find it quite ugly. I need something to save a lot of articles and sites for later brainstorming. Any helpfull sugestions?
Pocket is a really good way to save links. One click and easy to find later.
I've been using Pocket since 2011 across all my devices and browsers - Google Chrome on my desktop, Android phone, and Android tablet, Kindle Fire and more recently on my iPhone as well. The sync is maintained beautifully across devices. Love the one click to save and recommend features.
This classic mobile reading app has only gotten better with time and the addition of great features like full-text search, highlighting, notes, text-to-speech, and speed reading.
Big fan of Instapaper! I save any interesting articles and links to Instapaper. Now with all the premium features available for free, it's a great way for anyone to organize and search through all of your saved links. I often use the Chrome extension to quickly save links and stories I stumble upon and use the mobile app to read stuff I've saved for later. Also the minimalist design is a plus.
Found this on PH and really like it!! Super easy integration in all well-known browser, automatic sync between all devices, lists to share with others, quick dev team - really can't say anything bad! Currently I'm on the free plan and absolutely fine with it, although I'm eying premium for the nested-folder option - but its working out nicely even without.
I was tipped off about OneTab many years ago and I have been an ardent user ever since. Not only does it save memory in the browser (er..um..ahem...Chrome!), but it is a neat way to save open tabs for later, organized initally by the date and time you saved it. Plus, you can also go into one tab and move various saved pages around, in case you want to customize/group as you see fit. Nice option for links that you might need again in the near future, but not worth preserving for a later date in Pocket.
OneTab is great especially if you sometimes need a bunch of sites open for a project and switch projects. You can have tab groups that you open together or organize. It is now a pinned tab for me that keeps everything organized for quick access.
This is a nice way to keep links in front of you for quick access!
Literally a lifesaver for people like me with dozens of tabs opened all the time. You can save separate links, or the whole sessions. I also love how you can organize links in different projects, folders, etc...
I've been using Refind for over a year and it's exactly what I want. Its integration into Google search is very helpful.
Refind also got a great recommendation engine. Basically Youtube recommendations for text!
Evernote might be a piece of bloatware, but as a web content saving machine, it has no equal. I specifically like the ability of the web clipper to remove all superfluous content, like sidebars and ads, even going as far as just saving the text and images. I also like that it creates a local copy, so if a page goes offline, the content is still saved.
Evernote is great for clipping articles, tagging them, and finding them. The best part is the actual clipping portion which can pull stuff in different formats (simplified "reader" mode, or full page, etc). Very effective and useful
IF you tightly organize your browser surfing sessions tab-for-tab THEN I suggest @session_buddy... By simply right-clicking on any page in Chrome you can save your current browser session.. @session_buddy saves the current entire set of tabs making them easily exportable and retrievable using TEXT, CSV, MARKDOWN, HTML, or JSON formatting. As your brainstorming continues you can simply open the session you previously left off with and continue finding new web resources, then export this new session and remove the previous one. If you don't care about exporting your session and sharing or working with it's contents later, and just want simple links with tags then use @Pocket; It offers a tagging system to just tag your links as you save them. I prefer exporting the session.. it removes dependency on an app for managing links and gives you the raw links as a set that can be sent to Cloud, Local Directory, or even Physical External Drive if you need. I find myself sharing exported JSON format sessions with others often. Also, if they don' t have Pocket then it's more difficult to get your session to them. Assuming you're doing research that requires others, I would choose @session_buddy.. otherwise if it's just all personal links that only you will need, use Pocket.
Reasons: Drag and drop. You can make multiple boards and columns. It even has the option of following other people's public boards when they add bookmarks (e.g. entrepreneur, web design tools etc.) I personally make this my first pinned tab when opening my web browser to gain access to my most frequently opened websites such as Gmail, Trello, Twitter etc.
This is a quick, simple and reasonably priced way to bookmark if you want privacy and speed.
Try Favinks made by Brainin :) It's really awesome
Francesco Pisciotta made this productIt's incredible! A social tool with a great UX!
Over the last decade I've tried many apps to organise my bookmarks, due to needing to save new links almost daily for design and tech, articles, work stuff, inspiration, project stuff, etc. I've tried using the native bookmark feature across Shrome and Safari, Pinterest with its lack of customisation, the clipping sites via the note focused Evernote and pocket adding pages via the non-syncing Inboard, and the late Ember App, but nothing truly satisfied my desire to have one place to organise all links, for many topics, be searchable, be shareble, and have customisable tile views. Dropmark does all those things. Only thing left is for them to complete their iOS app which is perpetually in development, but their chrome extension is perfect.
The interface is very simple and clean. Wish they had a mobile app though.
I found this bookmarklet via PH. It does exactly what it says on the tin. The best thing about EmailThis is that it helps me turn my email inbox into a todo/to-read list. I use it to save bookmarks/links that I need to read in the near future and I use Pocket to basically save everything that I might need someday.
Pocket, Trello, Inbox and Pinterest are all good, but Diigo is definitely the best. The highlighting and commenting is great. It comes with a reader function. And then you can read, compose, and organize in the web app itself. As a writer, it's one of my most important tools.
