@nitinkhanna Tried commenting on the post but hit a 503 so....
Have you considered pinboard.in? Not fancy, but fast, cheap ($25/year for the full version that also crawls and archives everything you link to). Syncs with both Instapaper and Pocket. I find it to be basic, but good enough for both bookmarking and read-later functions. Notes can go in the Description field but that may be too much of a kludge.
@jack huh. Could you tell me if you were trying anonymous commenting or which login you used? I'll have to test that 503 out.
Pinboard... I've gazed at it longingly since a long time. Should have bought it way back when it was considerably cheaper. But no, I'd like something that lets me highlight and add notes inline. Pinboard is a bookmarking solution at the end of the day...
@sanspoint and I agree! :)
Instapaper is definitely what I'm leaning towards. Like, 99% there. They even have a beta tool which lets you export the text of the articles in a printable format, for whatever reason. So they're definitely trying! :)
@jack true. I was pleasantly surprised the first time I pressed the spacebar on a PDF on my brother's Mac, upon his instruction. I think I've looked at LiquidText? Can't recall.
True about your comment about Mac/Win, but true cross-platforming is basically being a web service. Polar is so close, and yet so far!
@nitinkhanna That sounds maddening. I had a similar experiemce when I played around with using Scrivner for a wiki. Yes, technically it supports linking but it was so broken. If you find a solution, I woukd love to hear. I’m Mac/iOS only and have things split scross Notability, Dropbox, Papers3, amd The Brain. It’s a bit of a situation.
@mexpat oh dear. I just checked my blog and there’s no comment in pending. I’m sorry about that! 😱
@mexpat I'm so sorry about that! No one usually comments on my blog, so I never noticed anything wrong till this wonderful community of people decided they want to help!
Hmmmm... Paper huh? You enjoy using it? One can save anything to it, or do you save everything as PDF and then import to Paper?
