Hi pinboard fen! I was wondering if any of you could recommend one of the Android apps for pinboard? There are a couple, but they don't exactly have many fantastic reviews between them. Is anyone using one of them and at least finding the app in question adequate?

Here's my usecase: I want to bookmark links from my twitter/g+ apps so I can read them later, ideally with a waiting queue so that I can add stuff while offline and then sync it once I'm online, though that's probably wishful thinking.

I use PinDroid, but bookmarking links still requires some wrangling of:
1) copy the URL
2) open the app
3) paste the link

It's not ideal, but it works pretty well, and I don't try to save bookmarks from my phone often enough for it to be frustrating.

What I like about the app is that it syncs my bookmarks (frequency of syncs can be adjusted in settings) and gives me access to my bookmarks, my unread bookmarks, my tags, my recent bookmarks, and my network bookmarks. The latter feature is what I love the most.

I also use PinDroid. Imo it works fine. Not sure what prev commenter mean by the 1-3 steps as I just on my HTC:
1. spot link - press finger on it to get Share link - Share via PinDroid.
2. It autofills URL & Description so I just add notes and tags. or use the recommended tags. Extra option if I want to keep link 'Private' or 'Read Later'.
3. Save.

I set the sync on 24hrs tho depending on how much I want it to go online and sync. You can have it sync every 5 if you'd rather. Not sure how it'd work with offline and sync settings, but it's a good enough app to give it a testrun as it's for free. Imo :)

I headdesk.

So it's under 'Share Link'? I think I'd been looking for something more like bookmarks, which is probably why I had more trouble. Thanks for this!

Hope it works for you as well :) It's automatically there when I dl'd it from the Market, but maybe it differs from what you're using? HTC sense it's there at least :)

I have a Motorola Droid 2 and never thought to use 'Share.' It makes sense now but didn't seem all that intuitive when I was trying to save a (really long) article to read later (and of course I didn't carefully read the app features when I downloaded it).

Everything is rainbows now, so thank you!
