Quick check: Do you use bookmarks? Do you often visit interesting pages, stumble upon blog posts so good that you’d want to go back to them again? How about web-based tools that you want to keep tabs of? Maybe there are certain pages on the Internet that’d always need for ready reference?
If you are a blogger or an author, you’d need a ready reference for all the sites you want to link to or do your research. Students? You’d obviously need a ready roster of websites that can help you continue with studies, or research, or both.
Business owners will benefit from a stock reference of websites that can help them do digital marketing.
Imagine my case: For this blog, I’d have to keep looking for new tools, browser extensions, apps, reviews by others, and many others. Where would you keep all that? My Evernote is already full of client notes, business meeting minutes, copywriting swipe files, and many personal documents.
For my digital marketing agency blog, I am now on a mission to write high-quality posts – each of which often includes plenty of outbound links to various other companies, bloggers, or research stats.
I’d not want to pollute it even though Evernote does have a handy Web clipper. I then realized that I’d need an easy, handy, bookmark manager – for everything else that lives on the web.
I need something clean, and I’d often want to start from scratch.
The uses are many but you only had options such as Evernote or other note-taking apps like Zoho Notebooks or others.
If you’ve been using your browser-based bookmarking feature, you are a leaving a lot on the table.
Say hello to RainDrop – a cool, sophisticated, and handy bookmark manager. When you set it up and install your chrome extension, this is how you’ll be greeted.

Advanced features such a Nested Bookmark listings and a few Integrations are pro features. But for everything else, the free version will do just fine.
You can also download an install RainDrop as a dedicated Mac OSx app and keep all kinds of content handy with you. I suspect you can read them online (I haven’t checked this out yet).

The start quickly and easily, just begin with the Chrome extension and use the web clipper to start building bookmarks of your favorite websites, blogs, resources, and swipe files. This is how it looks like by default.
You have the option of making your bookmarks show up like cards (which is awesome, by the way).
