Pinboard Comments

LOL: "Nine fives"

Positive Comment by AlternativeSteve
about Pinboard May 2016

That's an awesome company name, and almost worth the price of an annual subscription by itself. The developer has a great sense of humour, and the documentation on the web site is worth a read for entertainment value alone.

Pinboard - Well worth the money

Positive Comment by Wells
about Pinboard Mar 2016

After using Delicious for years, I needed an alternative to avoid the distracting ads and unfortunate new user interface. Though there are free alternatives, I chose Pinboard. What a joy! It has a clean interface, an excellent Firefox Add-on, and many accessible features.

Pinboard uses Tags well. After you click one of your Tags to filter which bookmarks you see, you can click the (+) to the right of any other Tag to further filter your results. That's important when you have 1,00s of bookmarks, let alone 1,000s as I do.

Pinboard imported my Delicious bookmarks and even cleaned them up, separated compound Delicious Tags (multi-word) into single Tags.

Sure, there are free alternatives, but for a few dollars a year you get a great service. There is no free trial, but you can pay and then get a refund within 3 days of purchase.

Another Alternative: Poolit

about Pinboard Apr 2015

One bookmarking site I don't see on this list is Poolit (http://poolit.me/betaregister). Here are the main benefits I've noticed from this simple and dynamic bookmarking tool:

  • Saves links to personally made categories
  • Visually browse all saved links on one page
  • Invite other people to save links into categories
  • Keep notes directly on the pages you save
