What's New in Version 1.2.1
Bug fixes and minor enhancements.
While Stache maybe one of few visual bookmarking tools that work from iOS to OS X, it's clunky and requires too many clicks to achieve visual categorization goals (my desired purpose). The worst part, in my eyes, is trying to figure out if all the bookmarks are categorized which requires looking at "All Bookmarks" which I mainly do from my iPhone. But that view doesn't show which are categorized and which are not. So Stache leaves me feeling like I can't achieve my goal with hundreds of bookmarks... that I'd love to import. I feel Stache has potential, but requires better User Experience understanding to reduce clicks and achieve quicker bookmark categorization. Basically, the workflow needs a revamp but first reviewed against competitor products like the under-developed 'Pearltrees' along with context pulling from 'Highlight with Liner.' To be absolutely superior, I'd like to see internal cross-referencing of similar bookmarks via an XML database. This of course would present a new search & view of resultant bookmarks and their categorization. I'd love to see the methodology appear in bookmarking as well as in a 'finder type of app' for OS X. Back to Stache though, I hope to see the workflow revised in the upcoming versions. As well, we need to know what bookmarks are not categorized. For now, I'm shelving Stache. It's more work than help. Hope this review helps though.
Does what it claims
Visual bookmarking apps are few and far between. I've been experimenting with two that provide both iOS and OS X versions, and Stache (so far) fits the bill for me. The browser extensions work, and, contrary what other users have reported, iCloud sync works well for me as well--all it takes is a little patience. Depending on how many items you've recently added to your library, opening the app on another platform may require a little bit of time to sync. That said, there is a minor annoyance I experience: when I grab web pages on my iPad using the Safari browser script, in order for the items to sync, I first have to open Stache on iOS and wait for the new addiction to show up sync — only then will library items sync properly so I see on OS X what I saved on iOS. I'd consider it a bug, but I can live with it (hence one star off). Otherwise, I like this app more than the other app I've been experimenting with (Keep Everything, with which I've experienced real annoying sync issues). Recommended.
I've been trying to move bookmarks from another app into Stache because I prefer it's design, but it frequently freezes for long periods of time. It makes an already tedious chore unbearable. Reading the other reviews makes me reconsider my decision despite liking the app because syncing is the next most important thing.
Once the bugs are worked out, I'd love to see an optimized reader, dark mode, font switching, etc, but priority wise those feel a long ways away. I'll check back in a few months and see if this app is more reliable.
