Would you like to know how you can easily bookmark your favorite sites using a free Mac application called Raindrop because if you try it, you won't be able to do without it?

In a previous post I already showed the Wep app version of "Raindrop.io," and also how to use the Chrome extension to bookmark and classify all my Steemit posts in collections. I also explained how to share your bookmarks and use the RSS feeds on your website.

"Raindrop.io" works on Mac computers, but they also have a Windows version and mobile apps for Android and iOS. It is a FREE application, which is an all-in-one bookmark manager that you can see here: https://raindrop.io/

They also have a Pro version at $3 per month if you want to take advantage of all the features, but for now I am using the free version.

Click "Install App."

This will jump to a section below.

Click on "macOS" and this will download the application.

After you install it on your Mac, you will see this window.

Click "Next."

If you want to use your email address as login you will need to "Sign up."

I am using Facebook to login for simplicity.

When you are logged in, you then see a window that should be empty for you as you are starting, but will look like this after you collect a few bookmarks.

You can show your bookmarks as lists or cards and more. I explained all of it in this post: How to Categorize and Share your Steemit Posts!

You can make "Collections" of bookmarks and make them public, so you can share links for others to see.

You can also make them private like I just did. Only you will see them.

These bookmarks are shown as a list.

You can change that to "Moodboard" if you would prefer.

When you click on a bookmark, it will open in the preview panel like this.

At the bottom you have a small icon to click on if you want to disable the preview and open the bookmark in your browser instead.

You can make the preview full screen and this might be even better than opening the bookmark in a browser.

At the top left, you can go back or reduce the preview panel. At the top right, you can open in your browser, mark as favorite or delete. In the center, you can edit the bookmark.

You can also install the browser extension from the desktop app.

If you go to the "Settings," you will see different options that are not enabled in the free version.

If you decide to upgrade to the Pro version, then you will get the following.

This might be worth it and I am considering it.

One last thing I want to show you is how "Raidrops" looks like on my Android phone.

It's great to have all your bookmarks perfectly synchronized on Desktop and Mobile.
