I know there are a lot of bookmarking tools from the native browser bookmarker to fully formed standalone ones like Pocket and Evernote. But Maillist adds a clever--and really important--piece that's missing in all the other ones: a follow-up mechanism that closes the loop. In this case, it generates a weekly email that takes 5 random unread articles from your list and reminds you to get to them. Once you do, you cross off the link from your list. I think this is brilliant (and yes, perhaps easily implementable by competitors). In effect, this one feature makes this a temporary bookmarking tool whose purpose is to help you get through articles that matter to you and declutter at the same time. Oh, and it's completely free. Check it out!

@alirtariq Nice! I feel like I never get back to articles I want to read.

Thanks a lot @alirtariq for featuring my product :) You misspelled its name, but still it's a great honor to be here without entering by myself :)

@morcek_m dang, my bad! Maybe we can get someone from the PH team to correct it :) Great product, nonetheless!
Marcin Michalak@morcek_m · Designer
@alirtariq could you take care of it? It's quite important for me since the product is very young and misspelling, in terms of SEO hurts a bit :) Thanks in advance!

@morcek_m understood! It's changed on the product, but the URL may need to be changed from the backend... I'll see if I can make it happen! Hang tight!

@alirtariq Awesome man! It's funny, because I was preparing materials to launch Mailist on PH on my own, and you were faster. :D

@morcek_m looks like you're good on the URL side too! Hope I didn't jump the gun too much on you. If there are any additional assets you'd like added, let me know!
