TAME YOUR BOOKMARKS TODAY!
Use many devices? Tired of losing your bookmarks? So was I. Then I built a better way to bookmark: Momiji.
Momiji is a new streamlined bookmarking app for iPhone, iPad and Mac.
■ WAVE BYE-BYE TO BOOKMARK MANAGEMENT
Up until now bookmarks were always a side-feature of the browser, forcing you to manually organize them. And when you wanted to use your bookmarks across devices/apps you've always had to manually export → import them or mail them individually to yourself. All of this only distracts you from what you really want to do: Adding, finding and viewing bookmarks.
Momiji does away with all this.
■ FOCUSED ON SIMPLICITY, SO YOU CAN SIMPLY FOCUS!
Momiji could not be simpler to use. In fact, it does most of the work for you. Including auto-filling bookmark titles and keywords so finding them later is guaranteed.
Laziness has never been so productive! Of course, if you want to pick your own title or keywords you can.
■ MOMIJI & PINBOARD - A MATCH MADE IN HEAVEN
Already using Pinboard? Then you'll absolutely love Momiji!
Momiji is designed for and provides full support for Pinboard bookmarks. And best of all, since Momiji works offline, your Pinboard bookmarks not only go everywhere you do, they can even be edited offline. Momiji is about to become your new favorite Pinboard app!
■ EFFORTLESS WI-FI SYNCING
You can also sync bookmarks instantly and directly between your iPhone, iPad and Mac over Wi-Fi. And because only your network is used and bookmarks are encrypted, it's completely private and secure!
■ GET READY TO SAVE YOUR TIME
Since your bookmarks are always synced you won't need to remember if that one bookmark is on your iPad or your Mac. With Momiji's powerful search feature you'll find it in no time. Be prepared to measure search time in seconds instead of minutes!
And if you can't find that one bookmark you swore you had, Momiji will save you time by offering to search the same term online. Momiji doesn't stop until you've got results.
■ SOCIALLY OUTGOING
A page worth bookmarking is a page worth sharing with friends and family. Momiji makes it easy to share your favorite bookmarks to Twitter and Facebook as well as mail them, all with a single click!
■ FREE BROWSER EXTENSIONS
You could copy and paste links into Momiji for Mac but why not one-click add them from your browser instead? Download a FREE extension for your favorite browser today.

Good multi-device tool for bookmarking
I am failry new to pinboard and Momiji, but am quickly taken by both. I found pinboard alone wasn’t as convenient as the pairing because Momiji does well at syncronizing the bookmarks across my devices. My only real hesitation in recommending Momiji has to do with tagging. If, within Pinboard online, I begin adding a tag, it searches my current tags and populates a drop-down list of autofills that I might choose. That helps me prevent creating duplicate, similar tags (ATT, AT&T, AT&T). In pinboard, I can choose my ‘standard’ one to maintain consistency. Momiji seems not to cache tags. Small matter for most people, I would assume, but since I want to use tagging to aid search, and since searching is a strong-point of pinboard and Momiji, this would be a helpful addition to a future verstion.
Work in progress
I had some UI issues which the developer explained to me via email within hours of contacting him.
I bought the app for one reason - to provide an interface to Pinboard.
The menu bar choices to “Provide Feedback” and “Contact Developer” do not work for me, apparently because my default mail client is in-browser Gmail rather than Mail.app or some other dedicated email client. I was able to find the developer’s website and contacted him through that. He responded within hours.
Within the app, the bookmarks list is sorted by the date modified which makes it difficult to keep track of things when, for example trying to edit a list of tagged sites one at the time (making notes).
I’ve had several issues on initially using the program: 1) Notes I entered were not saved 2) Some bookmarks appeared with tags other than the ones I assigned to them. I always want to see the bookmarks with the same tags I assigned to them in Pinboard, not with what appears to be any tag ever assigned by any Pinboard user. 3) When a bookmark is edited on either Pinboard or in Momiji, the changes are not immediately reflected on the other interface. This may be the fault of the Pinboard API and not Momiji. 4) Searching fo a tag on the Pinboard site returned 16 results. Searching through Momiji returned only eight.
I’ve not found any way to views my tag cloud within Momiji. Hopefully that will be included in an update.
