"All your bookmarks in one place!" sounded like I really really need this program. I was happy to find it in a software bundle recently, and it was one of the reasons I bought the bundle. Downloaded, installed, opened: NO bookmark in one place! Not a single one. How can that be? I had a look in the documentation, and quickly realized: I misunderstood. This program does not organize anything FOR you. YOU have to organize the bookmarks in the program. What a disappointment. For years, decades even, every single browser I installed had an function to import bookmarks from other browser with a single click - or even fully automatically. Not so this program. To make your bookmarks "work" in this program, you have to manually export them from each of your browsers separately, then import it into the program. Which means, the bookmarks are NOT imported automatically, and also will NOT be synchronized automatically when I add a new bookmark in one of the browsers. In essence, the program creates a lot of work, rather than saving it.
Maybe I just do not see the point. But why does this program not work like a self-synchronizing storage place for the bookmarks of my folders? In the sense that: I open the program, and ALL my bookmarks are in one place (as the slogan says). THAT would be really useful. I don't want to import stuff manually, or use a browser plugin to add the bookmark to the program AFTER I have also added it to the browser itself. The authors say you can synchronize the bookmarks between computers, but you have to register for an account. Why? We all have iCloud and/or Dropbox to provide platforms for cross-machine syncing - the program cannot work with either of it.

So, the program should basically do three things: Get bookmarks from all browsers automatically, provide additional features for the bookmark handling, and allow synchronizing via iCloud and/or Dropbox. As it is now, the program can do only the second thing. What a disappointment.

Bookmarks is an important part of my computer life and I always looking for good way to organize them. After a difficult start (it could be more intuitive) now I in love with Pins and with a promised Pinboard/Delicious integration it will be the perfect bookmark software for my needs.

Pins conflicted with Pages. Pages quit every time I tried to make a change to a document. Removing Pins solved the problem

Really enjoying this app. Been looking for something like Pins! for awhile. Still in development so will update features rating down the road. Ability to drag links out of Pins! and into other apps like Omnifocus, Evernote would be nice feature.

Dragging bookmarks out of Pins sounds like a useful feature... putting it on my todo list :-)
Thanks!

I outlined the problem I am having with my first message here. The next message I sent was asking for a timely response. The third message I questioned your lack of support. Now all my messages have been erased and my questions were never answered.

Hey Buck,
they didn't get erased... they're just on another page (the sale page). I also did respond telling you to please send me an email to support@pinsapp.com so we can sort out the issue together :-)

I tried with chrome Firefox and Safari. And I cannot drag-and-drop as they demonstrated in the video. I get nothing but errors when I try to update 1.7.2

Hi Ser, just download the new version 1.7.2 from the Download link and overwrite your current copy in /Applications... that will do the trick (having issues with this version's automatic update). About Firefox and Safari please be sure to have the URL selected and drag on the Dock Icon. An easier way to add bookmarks is to use the browser extensions (or the bookmarklet) so you'd only have one click to do! Those are available on the pinsapp.com website bottom right

I've been using Pins for over a year.

This is a very useful way of working with bookmarks. Having the bookmarks outside of the browser is counterintuitive, until you decide to switch browsers.

Yes there are add-ons that try to do that. This is easier.

An then there's all the functionality that turn your bookmarks into a real resource.

The software has not been without it's bugs, and there are still some features that I'd like to see. The couple of times I've contacted Fabio, his response has been immediate and determined to find a solution.

It's good value even at the usual price. On discount today, it's a steal.

My favourite bookmark manager so far and i tried a lot. Including Delish and Pearltrees (online) the latest. I have to say: This will be finally a tool i will be using to gather all my bookmarks and keep them up to date. The usability is superb and functionality rich.
go and grab it, it's a bargain!

I bought it from the Mac App store and I noticed the 1.5 release yesterday. So I decided to give it a second try.

The Pins menu key combination works now. You still must select a link or folder, before you can drag it. If you don't know this, you'll end up giving it up. This is a usable release, so I'll keep using it.

The Firefox extension is broken with Firefox 22. I hope this will be fixed soon!

The interface seems clean and promising. But the demo version crashed the first time I ran it, before I'd even added a single bookmark; I was simply looking through the menus. I'm sorry, but apps that are likely to crash should be considered Beta (at best) and not ready for sale.

Grandpa John had trouble on 20 Jan 2012
Major bug that I noticed with the first version that I put to service (1.3). Trying to permanently trash bookmarks that are in the trash folder does not work. This version (1.3.1) does not work either. The result is I have a load of bookmarks in the trash folder that I can do nothing with. The help file says: use the "delete" command in the menu (nope), right click the trash icon (nope) use the delete key (nope) use the "-" icon at the bottom (nope). Sorry, but nothing works!

I checked. You are right about the "Delete" function not working on bookmarks in the Trash list (fixed by the way.. available soon). You can still, however, right click on the Trash icon on the left bottom (in the Folder View) and select "Empty Trash"... this works.
