GoodLinks for Positive User Reviews

Bug iOS 14When selecting import the app crashes.Version: 1.7.3

Awesome!Smooth works really well..Version: 1.7.5

My daily companion!A great app that makes it super easy to manage by reading list and catchup in my own time..Version: 1.7.3

Great appLove this app, only thing I wish was there was an ‘all’ view. At the moment you can only see read and unread.Version: 1.7

Excellent read later app - just missing one thingThanks for the great app. I’ve used 1Writer for many years and immediately downloaded GoodLinks when I read about it on MacStories. It’s almost perfect but for one feature: Bionic Reading. Any chance you could incorporate BR as a text format option? Would definitely be a five star app then..Version: 1.0.1

A great read later app that is built for privacyBeyond it's good looks, this Read later application uses iCloud syncing to store your links. Keeping your reading private..Version: 1.1

Excellent, but needs annotationsThis is the best private and simple read it later app. Great user experience, very good Shortcuts integration. Great for bookmarking, and handles media. Sensibly priced - and mercifully NO Subscription (an increasingly rare app in the new bizarre of world of subscription greed) The one missing feature is a big deal unfortunately. There is no way to highlight text or take notes. This doesn’t need to be comprehensive, but it is a vital feature for a lot of people..Version: 1.2

Simple and perfect!I wish there were more apps like this. Simple, clean and perfect at what they do. Also, the dev team is on it adding new things for iOS 16 right on time!.Version: 1.7

This app works for youI love apps that work for you, and GoodLinks is definitely one of them. It’s slick, easy to use and doesn’t depend on a third party cloud service. Perfect..Version: 1.2.1

Great app for saving and organizing linksI use this almost every day to save links to content I know I will need later or don't have time to read at the moment. The ability to simoply add tags from the share sheet makes this incredibly useful. Thanks!.Version: 1.5.1

Very good app ! - Très bonne applicationVery good application. It allows you to keep newspaper or magazine articles without having to pay a subscription. Works very well. What is missing is having it in several languages, including French. Très bonne application. Elle vous permet de conserver des articles de journaux ou magazines sans avoir à payer un abonnement. Fonctionne très bien. Ce qu’il manque c’est de l’avoir dans plusieurs langues, entre autre le Français..Version: 1.7.5

Great but could be amazingI was looking for a clean and light read-later app. This one is great but missing a couple of key enhancements. 1) does not show word count or reading time for an article. If you’re like me, you want to pick your next article to read based on how much free time you have right now. Hard to justify when all competitors have this feature. 2) Twitter threads do not display all tweets. I am forced to load in the browser instead. Not a huge deal but it is inconvenient. Everything else this app offers is excellent. I still recommend it if you are looking for a read-later app..Version: 1.7.3

Easy to use, simple pricingEasy to use, useful search and tagging—simple pricing. Happy with this app..Version: 1.8.5

Excellent alternative to Pocket and InstapaperSuperb! GoodLinks, Pocket, and Instapaper must have different algorithms for different sites/sources, and none of these captures every site, but overall GoodLinks manages to capture better than most alternatives on most websites. None of these capture Apple News articles well (or at all). (Maybe I need to log in to my Apple ID account via GoodLinks?). The best Apple News capture tool I've encountered is the Notion-built share extension. Would love to see GoodLinks add a built-in text-to-voice reader like in Instapaper or Voice Dream Reader..Version: 1.5.3

Fab…One of my favourite apps. Great tool for keeping and organising stuff from the web you want to keep, and with some great categorisation and tagging functionality. Syncs across all my iOS and Mac devices seamlessly. Love it, great job 👍🏻.Version: 1.7.5

Great app! 👏🏽It's super straightforward and works just like it says. I always forget to check back on my saved articles in Safari. I'm also using Chrome and Brave a lot more often. I love having this on my desktop and my iPhone. I can check and read articles without having to open Safari. Plus, they update it often. I always look for this history to see if it's worth the investment. The developers care about their app and users enough to keep it running smoothly, even WITHOUT a subscription..Version: 1.7.3

Fantastic - you read my mind!Just imported everything (15K) from Pocket - thank you so much. Just wanted everything imported to iCloud, no service to go away etc., no privacy issues. Need: date view showing date in list. Goes looking at help. Need All (Tagged & untagged). Clicking on top GoodLinks should default to this. Once again thanks for this app, you are a star..Version: 1.2.1

I use this app for everythingThis app is well worth the price. It’s easy to customize and works extremely well. The developer was very responsive with the ONE issue i had with it after over a year of hard use. It works so well with other apps (share extension, URL scheme) and it’s easy to import your links from other apps. I stopped using reading lists and browser bookmarks altogether and use this app for everything. It’s worth much more than the asking price, and a big thank you to the developer. peace.Version: 1.6

Incredible. Replaced Pocket for meGot tired of using pocket due to the ads. This just works. Clean interface and great share/extension support that makes it easy to use..Version: 1.5

FantasticGoodLinks is a snappy, Read-It-Later app. It’s fast and search is extraordinary on iOS or iPadOS. Tagging is awesome. With the latest update, GoodLinks on macOS has the ability to share links via the standard macOS Sharesheet option. For those who want to drag and drop a Safari link into on macOS, that works beautifully too, including dropping a link directly on a specific tag in Goodlinks. Also, once you have a good link entry, you can drag and drop it onto any tag to add additional tags. It would be nice (on macOS) to have some sort of tag entry auto-complete similar to iOS and iPadOS. Sometimes iCloud sync between OS’es can take a moment.... Not a big deal. I am sure this can get sorted. I have other apps that utilize iCloud sync just fine. Regardless, the latest GoodLinks updates are welcome and helpful improvements, especially to macOS. Simply loving GoodLinks overall..Version: 1.0.1

Improving and valuableThe share functionality is a great addition IOS MacOS integration is great actively being upgraded at the moment. Crossing my fingers for x-callbackURLS more sophisticated and seveable searches please.Version: 1.4.3

Solid, minimalist article readerIf you just want to save articles to read offline, this is a good app. However, it is missing many features commonly provided by other services: highlighting, annotations, notes, making and sharing text screenshots, etc. The developer is aware of these limitations and said the features will be included in a future version. It's a good app, but please be aware of these limitations; it may not be ready for you yet..Version: 1.7.1

GoodLinks is easy to useI really like how it makes it simple to just throw your link in there! No trying to goad you into choosing a bunch of qualifying days. They know you’re in a hurry and just want to safeguard the link. There are more customizable methods should you want to go back when time permits, and give them tags, for better searching. This is all I’ve used on this app so far, but I think it is my most helpful bookmark app so far! Going to get into the unused features as soon as I get time! I’d advise it is a no-brained though for its streamlined and concise entry system and overall stability ..Version: 1.7.3

GoodLinks Great AppThis is the simplest and easiest app for grabbing an article and saving it for later that I have ever tried! Stripping out adds was one of the biggest reasons I purchased it. Syncing across my devices makes my readings available anytime, anywhere on whichever device I have at the moment. Excellent!.Version: 1.2

Great!Terrific app, incredibly useful to me. Has very nice dark mode also..Version: 1.3

Replaced Instapaper for MeI enjoy using read later apps for research and leisure reading. Good Links is a beautiful native app, available across all Apple devices (setting aside the watch and the TV). Getting articles in is easy — the new Safari extension works great — and the reading experience is very good. I highly recommend the app. I'm hoping for the developer adds highlighting and the ability to organize highlights, etc. Keep up the great work!.Version: 1.3.1

Decent app, article parsing could improveI like this app for collecting links. I do not use it to read the conent, just collect and categorize to read later in other apps. The parsing engine isn't great - it's not in the same ballpark of, say, Instapaper's. It's be good to have an option to view the original article instead of the parsed one and/or allow for hiding that entire column..Version: 1.8.5

ICloud Advanced Data Protection IssueI am loving this app except for one thing. I’m tied to using Firefox on Windows for my work computer. I added the extension and it wouldn’t work. When I went to the website for help I saw this: “If Advanced Data Protection is enabled on your iCloud account, please note that the Chrome and Firefox extensions may stop working. In such cases, we recommend using the Safari extension or the Share extension.” Unfortunately that doesn’t help my situation and I won’t be able to save links using my work computer after all. I mean, I could try to get the link from my computer to my iPhone and add it from there, but that’s not entirely convenient..Version: 1.8

It just works really, really well.It isn't often that an app makes me smile but this one does. It does work effortlessly. It does do what it says it will. Awesome..Version: 1.7.3

Stable, quick sync and nice clean reading environmentSimple to get content into the app with options easily available if you need. The sync is lightning fast. Love that you don’t need to open the app for new links to sync up and then back down on another device. The reading panel is uncluttered. Two areas I would love to see developed: 1. The ability to highlight and perhaps create notes. 2. Enhanced search within notes and across all saved links. I’m sure these are on the radar though! Can’t wait to see how the app keeps developing..Version: 1.1.1

Does one job wellSimple and effective design, syncs across all my devices. Just works..Version: 1.4.2

Great appThis has much improved my web use.Version: 1.6

Still the bestEvery now and then I’ll take another look at the competition. Raindrop.io looked interesting, but seriously lacking in offline reading. New one Matter looks decent, but just not there yet (and I fear will move to expensive sub model soon, as it’s VC funded). Pocket - no thanks, don’t need all the suggestions. GoodLinks still wins every time. Indispensable features include: Totally seemless handling of logins to paywall sites Great automation potential via Shortcuts Excellent developer support Saves entire Twitter threads. I was about to email developer to ask about threads, but thought I’d give it a try first. It just works! All in all, still by far the best. About the only feature still lacking is Highlights/Annotations and Readwise integration..Version: 1.7.1

Fantastic for reading, there are a few features I miss thoughI’ve tried a bunch of read it later type apps. Pocket is pretty good but overkill for what I want. Mostly I use Instapaper since it works everywhere, allows highlighting, and syncs with Readwise. However, the capture and rendering in GoodLinks is far more reliable than either Instapaper or Pocket. It does a better job of actually grabbing all of the text and images while stripping away all of the extra stuff and leaving the text still looking great. If GoodLinks added highlighting and either integration with Readwise or csv export of highlights it would be perfect. I’d even be willing to pay a bit for those, if that makes the difference..Version: 1.3.1

Best read later app yetHave been searching for an app like this for ages. Lightning fast, very solid and doesn’t require a log in to use someone else’s web service. I have moved all my links from Instapaper and Safari - so good to have everything in one place and synchronised across my devices just using iCloud..Version: 1.0

How do you TagReally like this app but how do you tag an article that’s saved? I’m using the app in iOS but can’t see how you tag, create tags etc? Please help..Version: 1.7.5

5 StarFor some reason I can't get the review to let me select 5 stars. I've been using GoodLinks for more than a year. I rarely leave reviews, but this app warrants one. Simple and intuitive, I love everything about this app. Seamlessly integrates with iCloud so it's the same on all my devices. I have a scorching case of ADHD and this allows me finish articles without going down the rabbit hole of another link on a website. GoodLinks has made a dramatic improvement to my comprehension and effectiveness. Thank you for creating the app. A suggestion, not complaint. Have you considered allowing tags to be capitalized and be more than one word? Please consider tipping the developer (s) so they can continue to support and improve the app. And, I am not affiliated with the developer in any way..Version: 1.7.5

ExcellentJust what I wanted. Clean and modern read it later app... please stick around.. I now have all my links in one place. Please improve add links via share sheet on mac..Version: 1.0.1

One of my most used appsI use this app everyday across an iPad/iPhone and Mac. It’s bulletproof and requires no subscription to a third party website. My only gripe is there if there is one, is the lack of highlighting to export to third party note apps. There’s a work around, but I’d prefer a native feature. Still gets 5 stars for the cost, features and brilliantly responsive developer..Version: 1.5.3

Almost perfect, has room to growThis is a great bookmarking tool. I love that it saves a version of the saved content for offline use. It sync with iCloud too and it’s well worth its price. No promoted content, or things you wouldn’t want in it. It’s simple and efficient. I’m giving it only four stars though because I feel like it’s missing a in-house highlighter with export. Saving content for future read is great, but I’d love for it to be more actionable & able to take notes and quotes right from the app. Then send that data into a file or another app, instead of having 2 apps side by side. This gets worse on iPhone, because of the reduced screen space..Version: 1.5.2

Love the App; I wish there was an All viewI love this app and it has replaced Pocket and other RITL services yet I wish there was an all view..Version: 1.8

Finally, a replacement for Instapaper.Instapaper, Pocket, etc. have felt like subpar tools for all kinds of reasons for years. This is a beautiful app, a private app, and a native app, across all platforms. I haven’t run in to any of the manliness in stripping of ads, etc. as I have with those tools either. This is incredible..Version: 1.0

Simple but effectiveThis app is an example where it has a very limited objective and it fulfils that in a very simple UI which doesn’t have any friction. Most of the apps have to try too hard to justify their purpose and so the UI. Became a homescreen citizen very quickly..Version: 1.2

Great AppAfter years of subscribing to Instapaper, I ended my subscription and moved to GoodLinks. I haven't regretted it one bit. One feature request would be to have a link import feature for people moving from Instapaper or Pocket. But this is a great app. Worth every penny..Version: 1.1.1

Very goodAnd fast. And getting even better all the time….Version: 1.7.5

Love it, been using it for many yearsAn excellent replacement for online bookmarking apps.Version: 1.8.5

Works great with VoiceoverSimple, clean, user-friendly UI. Everything works as expected. Efficient to use with Voiceover, much more so than Pocket or Instapaper IMO..Version: 1.5

Great App, but......there is no way to contact the developer from the App Support link. It's a HUGE oversight that one cannot paste text into the description field with share-sheet or in the app. I left a $5 tip anyway. If you've been juggling Pinboard apps for years and have been getting frustrated with recent issues iwth Pinboard (growth and the fact the guy that runs it is a jerk) this should work for you. I will evenutally drop Pinboard in favor of this app, FWIW..Version: 1.4.5

A beautiful and simple way to store web storiesI've been using Goodlinks now for about a year and I can't stop saying good things about it. It has a nice, clean, user interface - and adding web stories/pages is super easy with the web extension. And the ability to tag your saved web pages makes it super easy to keep things organized. Overall, this is a great app, and keeps getting better!.Version: 1.6.1

Best Offline reader for web pagesIt does a great job of download and formatting web pages. Best of all, you can also download from sites behind a paywall if you're a subscriber of those sites..Version: 1.7.3

Essential part of my workflowI switched to GoodLinks from another ReadLater service. It's a nice app which integrates well with Share Sheets and which syncs seamlessly with my iOS devices..Version: 1.6

IOS 12I have used this app for a while and it’s really nice. But I have a pretty old iPad which I can only get to iOS 12. Is it possible to make the app also work on this version of iOS.Version: 1.2

Great read later app!I love this app. It's super clean. If you're a fan of apps like Things3, Bear, or other super clean apps, you will like this app. I am excited about the forthcoming browser extension. The share button works well but the extension will be much faster, I suspect..Version: 1.3.1

Much prefer it to InstapaperAs a long time Instapaper user, it wasn’t long before Goodlinks won me over. I love the recent feature that saves Twitter threads.Version: 1.7

Amazing AppWell worth the price of admission. The only bookmark/readlater app that doesn't require a subscription and stores everything locally. Worth twice the price. The only thing missing: being able to import bookmarks from browsers and content from Pocket, etc..Version: 1.4.4

Why would use Pocket?I wish I’d found this earlier! Good links is so much easier to use and a delight to the eye….Version: 1.4

Syncing Needs WorkPretty good app! My only complaint is that if I save a link on one device, I have to quit and re-launch the app on a second device, in order to sync that link. How about a "pull down to refresh" in the iOS app and a refresh menu item or button on the desktop app? Edit: Changing my review to 5 stars. I emailed the developer about my syncing concern, he responded back and it's working great now!.Version: 1.5

Great App - it just works!I had been looking for a good cross- platform article etc saver & for me, this is it. Using tags to organise everything is beautifully simple and makes finding thing a breeze..Version: 1.7.1

Keep improving - your’re getting there!Lovely app from a small developer who is doing a brilliant job. Continual updates will likely see this established as best of breed. My priorities for the project backlog: 1. Allow manual sort (right now, it is only by newest or oldest). 2. Dedicated tag editor UI. 3. Ability to reassign tags (replace, etc.). 4. Export as PDF (rather like Markup in Safari, on one long continuous page). Excellent app and highly recommended..Version: 1.7.3

Far better than the alternativesNo subscription, tags that work and no curated rubbish having someone’s agenda forced into my read it later app... perfect It does one thing and does it well, exactly what I was looking for.Version: 1.2.1

A "Read Later" app that gets it rightThis is the first Read Later app that I've used that just gets everything right, and that works perfectly across MacOS, iOS and iPadOS. With the share extension, it's incredibly simple to save articles. The app grabs all the relevant text from the web page, and stores it so you can read at your leisure, in an easy to read format. It's also great for archiving pages so that you can always have access to the content. Support for searching within Spotlight would be a great addition..Version: 1.5.1

Work GreatEasy to add articles. Easy to read them. Works fine on Mac and ios!.Version: 1.2

Best Reading App!!I’ve tried to get into Instapaper and Pocket in the past, but honestly they were just a bit too bloated. I don’t need an app for long term article storage. I primarily use the app for reading longer articles that I want to save the position on and then I delete when I’m finished. This app is super lightweight, perfectly holds reading position. Great options for font and background readability. I also really like that it uses my iCloud to sync instead of proprietary sync. The app respects privacy. My favorite app purchase in some time..Version: 1.3

GoodLinks is great.Fast, simple and private in iCloud. Great app 👍.Version: 1.7.5

Excellent Bookmark AppElegant design. Simple to use and syncs with Mac. Would love to see more organization options like folders or smart searches..Version: 1.4.2

If you value your privacyYou'll ditch Pocket & Instapaper, and use Goodlinks. Awesome product!.Version: 1.3.1

A really useful app especially for …As a researcher this app is really really useful for those serendipitous finds whilst out and about and a thought strikes..Version: 1.8.5

Thank you!I’ve been waiting for an app like this to replace Instapaper, Pocket, Reading List for ages! Thank you!.Version: 1.0

Great app - One small improvement neededThis is a great application for those who gather information for later research. One suggestion for improvement is for tags to auto complete..Version: 1.7.3

Effective and usefulI didn’t realise just how much I needed it until I started using it. I’m a convert..Version: 1.7.5

Practically PerfectThere’s not a lot more the developers can do to this app. It does everything you could want from an offline reader. Read items can be kept and starred for later review, tags added to help sort, and all different themes are possible. The only thing that I would like to see would be a page turn option on the iPad rather than the scrolling ring the only option..Version: 1.4.2

Superb AppA must-have app that I will install on every possbile Apple device with a browser that I own. Many thanks to the developer, Mr Ngoc Luu..Version: 1.8

Speedy and goodA simple app which works fats and enables you to organise weblinks and save web pages to read or refer to later. The search mechanism is good. The only suggestion I have is for a facility to order links and pages by title, not just by the date on which they were saved to the app..Version: 1.2.1

Extremely goodCouldn't recommend this app enough, it just works 👍.Version: 1.2

Solid app, a few additional features would make it perfectI greatly appreciate GoodLinks’ payment model and privacy focused structure. The app is solid — simple and highly functional. I love the tagging shortcut from the share sheet prompt. Syncing between devices is a little slow, but I guess that’s why it’s called a “read-it-later” service. The only features I would like to see added are highlights, annotation, and maybe a PDF generator. Overall, this is the most elegant read it later solution I have seen to date..Version: 1.0.1

Excellent; goodbye to Instapaper!All round very sleek, effectively and customizable. Only wish that it had an independent login service so that I can save articles on non-Apple devices..Version: 1.5.1

I love itI’ve used other ‘read it later’ apps over the years and they all ended up too busy, too complex and too intrusive. I then tried just using Safari’s reading list feature but it never seemed quite enough. Good Links is pretty much perfect. No account needed and buy it once and get it on both iOS and Mac OS for just one payment. Sync works well. The interface is great and, having upped the font size a touch, the reading view is spot-on (younger readers may not need to adjust this!). The ability to easily copy and share article text with other apps is the icing on the cake. I can’t recommend it highly enough..Version: 1.0.1

Excellent appI have used many similar apps over the years but have never found one that has “stuck” . So far I am a huge fan of GoodLinks and it has already become an important part of my workflow. Having just started a University Degree I needed something to gather and manage the multitude of websites links I was rapidly acquiring in my research and studies. GoodLinks has proven to be the perfect app for this purpose. It’s fast, has a beautiful UI and very easy to use. It syncs perfectly between my Mac , iPhone and iPad which is important for all the apps I use. I use Tagging extensively in my workflows and GoodLinks supports this perfectly with its easy to use tagging system and helpful “tag picker” built into the UI. It integrates well with other apps, including Siri Shortcuts I believe, and is an area of the app I’m currently exploring. Definitely a 5 star app for me and throughly recommended..Version: 1.0.1

The exact app was looking forHas literally everything I want and no stupid subscription. I’m very happy with it..Version: 1.8.5

Awesome!Switched from Instapaper (stagnated over the last several years), to Omnivore. App doesn’t feel native, just isn’t delightful to use. Figured I’d try GoodLinks and happy I did: feels native, fast, delightful to use and read articles in..Version: 1.8.5

New improved version for MacOSYou can now use the share option to share a link to GoodLinks from your browser. This was the "missing link" (pun intended :-) ) for me to give GoodLinks 5 stars for MacOS. It's already 5 stars for me in iOS and iPadOS. I use it many times daily and it's now an important part of my workflow..Version: 1.1.1

Works greatThis app has been a great read-it-later app for me. Looks great, easy to understand UI, and I have no issues with syncing..Version: 1.1.2

A case study in sublime app designBeen using this for years. It’s just perfect for what it does, which is to capture web pages to read later and offline. The share extension is effortless to use and just gets out of the way after you’ve invoked it. It doesn’t nag you, notify you, tell you you have 20 articles left to read. It keeps your data between you, your devices, and your iCloud account. It doesn’t track you or intervene in any way. *Well* worth the trivial purchase price for a brilliantly engineered piece of software that fits beautifully into your Apple ecosystem, and will constantly surprise you as you grow with it, wondering ‘can I do *this* with it?’ - to which the answer is nearly always yes. Heavily recommended..Version: 1.7.5

Great app at good priceI love this read it later app. it doesn't cost monthly and does a great job. it also respects your privacy and doesn't collect data. well done!.Version: 1.2.1

Fantastic!Exactly what I was looking for in a read-later app. Very thoughtful design and an impressive feature set in a small minimalist app. It does everything I need. Thanks to the developpers!.Version: 1.7

It works!I have been loving this app for some time, however I just had a bit of an issue with saving Twitter threads. I reached out to the developer. He responded very quickly & helped me. Ultimately, the issue was on my end, but he was very patient & responsive..Version: 1.7.1

Good on first acquaintanceImpressed. Good layout and choice of themes. Some imports still have unnecessary ancillary matter which wasn't there with Instagram but the filing system is much better..Version: 1.7

Nice expereince across devicesGreat app and nice to see being actively developer. Just hope to see browser plugins coming soon to make the workflow on macOS smoother..Version: 1.1.2

Best read later appHopes future version support highlight annotation and full text search.Version: 1.1.2

The dawgWorks great.Version: 1.1.1

Great service, App is nearly thereGoodlinks MacOS is a powerful yet simple way to organize and store digital links that can clutter your day. From news articles to social media posts, Goodlinks helps you collect important references in one place. I recently began using Goodlinks for MacOS after a decade on Pocket and have been really impressed with its features and UI. First and foremost- Privacy. I also love that its native, and uses far less storage or ram than pocket by a mile. Furthermore, Goodlinks allowed me to seamlessly import every link I had saved over that 10 year period, eliminiating a lot of stress in orgazining alll my old articles and memories, and even let me add my favorite subscriptions to bypass paywalled articles! While the transition has been good so far, there are a few things that would really improve the expeirnce for us MacOS readers 1) Adding the ability to select a 3rd party browser for opening links without having to change the share extension settings; 2) Offering users a feature that allows them to export an article as PDF like they do on iOS; 3) Adding the ability to scan or identify broken/dead links when importing, and a way to bypass cookie notices/cookies pages in the article download. 4) Automatically tagging subscription linksto allow easier sorting; 5. When you finish dragging a link to a tab, the up/down slider of the tags menu resets to the top- when sorting through tons of links by tagging, this can get a little frustrating as you develop a large list. All in all, Goolinks has been a revalation for this former pocket luddite, and I highly reccomend that you check it out, especialy if you’ve been wonderina about finally getting through your doom pile of information ; ).Version: 1.8

Finally, the ultimate reading appThere have been so many apps doing this for so long — it’s like a definitive category in the history of the App Store — and yet none of them ever got it right until GoodLinks. Finally, a reading app with standard interface and typography that feels like part of the system. Finally, a reading app that is entirely backed by iCloud, requiring no third-party services. Finally, a reading app that saves and syncs your reading position *every time*, instead of 1/3 of the time. I hope this app is around forever, because I’ll be using it that long..Version: 1.0.1

Beautiful app, syncs perfectly across devicesI use this app every day and it works perfectly. What a great job the developers did..Version: 1.5

Another hit out of the park for 1Writer developerGiven how solid and useful an app 1Writer has been for me for years, I jumped at the opportunity to support Ngoc Luu. So far I’m very impressed. The same attention to detail towards the most useful functionality, a clean minimal design and urlscheme actions for the adventurous has been applied here. Goodlinks also takes much of the best from Instapaper(reading experience) and Pocket (quick save with option to tag while saving) and brings it under the privacy and speed of your iCloud account only and as one of the only handful so far of universal iOS/iPad/Mac apps! A couple features that would push this to 5 stars for me would be: * Some links (all that come from Apple News) do not get scraped and require tapping a link to fully download * sync preferences through iCloud (except maybe text+layout size preferences) * swipe/tap pagination (few read-later apps incorporate this and I still prefer long form reading this way) * background downloading (the purpose is defeated quite a bit if articles aren’t already downloaded and offline by the time the app is opened next). Otherwise, a fine job thank you!.Version: 1.0.1

One of my favorite appsI love this little thing, and I much appreciate the non-subscription model. I would love the ability to highlight and annotate, and I am sure others would as well..Version: 1.7.3

Fantastic app, with one huge flawI love everything about GoodLinks with one exception ... I can't save a web page with an article that spans multiple pages with a single click. Unfortunately, that keeps me with Instapaper, for now, as my main read it later app. Everything else about this app is perfect..Version: 1.3.1

AwesomeThis is exactly what I was looking for. Elegant, quick, reliable. Syncs quickly across devices and has no ads or nags about subscriptions. Instabuy!.Version: 1.0.1

A Must haveOne of the best purchases I've ever made!.Version: 1.3.1

Great appUseful & easy to use.Version: 1.5

Tab/bookmark hoarders: LOOK NO FURTHER!READ THIS: GoodLinks will become sooo ESSENTIAL to your browsing experience on iOS that you’ll forget how inefficient and unproductive using all of the [insert competitors name] felt. I’ve bookmarked 7,621 links (PAINLESSLY) using GoodLinks at the time I write this review….THAT’S INSANE! To maximize productivity: Add GoodLinks to one of the first three spaces of the top row in share sheet (so it’s always visible immediately when clicking share). Go to the link you want to save. Tap the GoodLinks icon. DONE! NO ANNOYING ANIMATION DELAYS OR POP UPS! In case of emergencies: Enable the Safari extension too. If your share sheet is glitching out/freezing on you, click the extension icon instead. Jeez, I’m such a loser for having so many bookmarks but at least I haven’t wasted hours of my life like I would’ve using other apps!!!.Version: 1.7.5

Almost perfectJust wish it could be intergrated with FIrefox on desktop as currently to save something to GoodLinks is about 3 or so clicks before you get the popup to add the link..Version: 1.1.2

Love the appIt is one of the better bookmarking app in the apple ecosystem. The developer is honest and dedicated to his work. I also appreciate that the price is fair unlike other rip off apps. It works very well for me..Version: 1.5

One Missing Feature for MeI haven't been using GoodLinks very long, but it is already becoming something I can see myself using long term. The being said, a big missing feature for me is not being able to sync via another method rather than iCloud. I was planning on using this at home and work, but I am unable to login to icloud at work, but I am able to use DropBox. If there were more sync options, specifically DropBox, this app might be a homerun for me. I would also like to raise my hand for apple pencil support, being able to write and markup links..Version: 1.7.3

So simple & So usefulIt does all I need for cross device Read-It-Later and bookmarking..Version: 1.8.5

Brilliant AppI almost never leave reviews on the App Store, but GoodLinks is so brilliant that I felt I had to. The app is brilliantly designed, and looks great, especially the iPad version. If you have links that you use regularly and want to be able to find easily, this is the app for you. The ability to add tags and notes is effortless, and the information syncs perfectly between my iPad Pro and iPhone. Would have no hesitation in recommending it..Version: 1.2

Valuable appI’m finding this increasingly valuable, especially now it has Hookmark support.Version: 1.8

Hands down the best ‘read later’ app for meI’ve struggled with read later style apps, largely because they’re too complicated for what I want. GoodLinks is a simple app that excels at what it does by staying focused. Can’t recommend it enough..Version: 1.8

BrilliantThis is the best value app in the store. Does an excellent job of rendering webpages. Much better than any other app I’ve used. Only wish is for nested folders. Tags are OK but no real substitute..Version: 1.7.5

Fantastic appThis is so great, finally I have found a way of keeping those browser tabs under control and my links in one place. I say one place, but since this works across all my devices they are available where and whenever I need them. Icing in the cake is the custom shortcut capability that allows me to share curated and markdown formatted links to other applications. Brilliant work.Version: 1.2.1

Finally actually reading all the stuff I save in PinboardEdit Dec 2023: I came to say something I clearly forgot I already knew - bookmarking isn’t this apps forte. I JUST saved a site with several tags, then realized I forgot one. So I hit the button again expecting it to pull up the same record so I could edit it. Nope. No tags. So I thought I’d go to the app itself and edit it. But my site didn’t seem to be there. 1. You better remember your tags, because searching for the actual title of the page brings back nothing. 2. I eventually found it in the Untagged section. So apparently re-saving the same site doesn’t update or make a duplicate entry, just overwrites the old one. So, my review below is still accurate. As others have stated, one of the best things about this app is how well it integrates into the Apple environment. Saving things on my phone and reading them on my iPad just works. Like it supposed to. I picked this up because I love the developers other app 1Writer, which I have used for years. At first, I tried using it more for bookmarking and it just did not work as well as Pinboard for me. When I finally started using it to actually read the things I bookmarked at Pinboard, it has become one of my most used app. A great decision by the developer to allow importing just my unread links from Pinboard because my desktop workflow is still Pinboard-centric..Version: 1.8.1

Great and a suggestionLovely app, ty. No fault this but background refresh would be a useful option to toggle.Version: 1.5.3

Privacy FTWI looked for an app like this one that does not come with a lot of trackers or requires an online subscription. This is just AWESOME! The elusive ONE star (to make it PERFECT) is the lack of Apple Pencil support (for the iPad) -- imagine being able to scribble on the document, it'd be PERFECT!.Version: 1.7.3

Better than Instapaper, Pocket!The reading experience is better than Instapaper and Pocket. Please have a highlighting function soon. Love it..Version: 1.0.1
