Customer Reviews

Functional and useful

I’m surprised this app doesn’t get more reviews. It’s a fairly fast and responsive application that provides easy access to pinboard bookmarks. I like the minimalist design and the well-executed set of basic tasks. The most important for me was to have quick access to filtering my bookmarks with my existing tags, which the app does delightfully. I hope the developer continues improving this quite useful app.

Does not sync properly

The synchronization feature in this app does not work. I removed some bookmarks using the web application and the same bookmarks still appear in the app. Not good...

I like it

I like the minimalist approach. No distractions. No sharing on Facebook or distractions.It’s simple no frills. I love it so far. I haven’t had any issues with syncing. Changes I make in this app are made to my pinboard bookmars (on the website) almost immediately.

One thing I really dislike is that there’s no obvious way to exit fullscreen. As long as you don’t do that, you’re golden.
