What's the best bookmark management app for Mac?

over 6 years ago from , Director at Love the Craft

I use Stache, which I realize is a bit old school. The problem is that I never really "use" it. I need something that is going to re-engage me with old content and link up to my discovery workflow in a project.

I've heard that Pocket is pretty good, any others out there anyone can't live without?

    Hey Ali !

    I started to use raindrop.io a while ago and I am pretty satisfied with the product. You can easily import or export your bookmarks, create collections, tags etc. !

      +1 for Raindrop.io!

      The fact that they have native apps for MacOS, iOS, Windows and Android, as well as a super slick chrome extension with right-click/save-to functionality make it very accessible and easy to use.

      Just made the switch from Pinboard to Raindrop.io. It changed quite a bit since the last time I tried it, the mac app is pretty nice! I'll probably use it to save links (articles, ressource, etc.) and Pixave for images and documents.

      Agreed on raindrop.io! Excellent. Paid for PRO just because I appreciated the free service so much.

      Thanks all for the Raindrop.io recommendations...I've already gotten my Instapaper bookmarks imported in and it looks fantastic. I've been wanting something like this for a long time....definitely going to sign up for the PRO option.

      What's difference between raindrop.io and default safari/chrome bookmark manager?

      Raindrop is the business. Have already switched over from Stache to this.

      I'd also give a +1 for Raindrop.io. It's one of the few services I deem worth paying for. They're also constantly improving the UI; the newest update was super nice for the Chrome extension.

    You should take a look at Pinboard. Its simple, reliable and you can choose to use 3rd party apps that support its API if you want more tailored experience.

    I personally use it as massive reference board for anything I find useful online so that all I have to remember is tag structure I use to find it.

    Its not free, but why should it be when you literally pay for it to exist.

    I know I am a different beast but, the best bookmark manager I've ever used is Google search. I have many links but I don't pay attention to them. Eventually I save some, but I never check them anymore. Anyone has the same behavior?

    Am I the only one using Google Bookmarks? Free and supports tagging, all I need.

    Have you tried pinboard? It's super simple. If you want more of an app, Here's resources for apps: https://pinboard.in/resources/

    Depends on what you're using it for. But this is what I've settled on:

    • Dropmark. It's strength is saving snippets and visual inspiration. I also have raindrop.io which is a great option. I used both against each other and ended up signed up for Dropmark last year because at the time it was an easier to use solution.
    • Pinboard (using the mac client Spillo). If you're just bookmarking websites, it's hard to beat the simplicity of this. It doesn't have any visual listing view like the others, but it's a solid option for keeping a reference/library of resources.

    I am building a small bookmaking/read-later tool called Email This. It lets you save main text and images (no ads or clutter) from an article to your email inbox. You can create automatic labels/filters in your email client to organize the incoming bookmarks.

    I've had users saying that they use Email This for things that they want to read in the short term (maybe in a couple of days) and Pocket for saving things that they might need sometime in the future.

    Let me know if you find it useful - https://www.emailthis.me

    if you use Slack, you definitely should try Paperbot. It's not exactly a bookmark manager, but it is awesome to discovery.

    I have tried raindrop, and others, and keep coming back to instapaper. As a designer I thought I'd love the image led UI of raindrop, but ulitimately I find it distracting. Not that Pinterest bought instapaper, the pro features like search are free for all.

      You can use list layout of bookmarks, with or without covers. Try raindrop again;) it very customizable. Also can you explain what the killer feature of Instapaper or what you like most?

    Hey there, I can recommend tool for managing a lot of bookmarks, resources and discovering. It’s Bubblehunt - search platform where you can create own search system for this things. This service automatically indexed page, get relevant results from your information space, delete duplicates and non-active urls.

    I also use http://getstache.com/ - does the trick for my needs. I wish it was a little more "connected" - it's currently Mac-only. Ideally I'd like my bookmarking app to have a web app too.

    Sounds like raindrop is well worth a look.

    A friend and I recently made a Chrome Extension with a Web UI that will take a screenshot of the site you'd like to bookmark and adds it to a public feed so that even if you don't re-engage in your "bookmarked" content, other people on a similar discovery path can do. Still very much a WIP but it is simple and does the job! Would love to know your thoughts.. https://browses.io
