Finally, a "bucket" app I like!

I’ve been searching far and wide for a good “bucket” application into which I can throw web pages, articles, notes, screenshots, audio clips, whatever! And it’s remarkable how many such applications exist, but in fairly incomplete or unsatisfactory ways: they’re quite often ugly (a minor point, but important if you’re using Mojave’s Dark Mode), over-complicated, mobile-unfriendly, and/or use proprietary sync solutions that may incur their own subscription rates. Keep It addresses all of these matters handily and the price is reasonable.

More feature-full alternatives exist, but for my purposes, Keep It is absolutely outstanding. At the time of writing, the subscription for both mobile and desktop adds up to $30 per year, and that’s less than the up-front cost of most other “buckets” I’ve evaluated. Longitudinally, you might save a few bucks by buying a non-subscription application once and not getting any major upgrades over several years, but I’m happy to pay what this app is worth on an annual basis so long as it continues to serve me well.

To be fair, I’ve not been using Keep It long, so I will be curious to see how it performs over time. I’ll plan to update my review in six months or so. Barring any major issues until then, I’m confident that I made the right choice.

Here is WHY this is EXQUISITE

In the 80's Sharp made a PDA called the ZAURUS. It had a graphical folder file allegory and you could drag anything to MULTIPLE folders. This simple and elegant system has been missing - until KEEPIT. Assume you have a note or a video (yes you can add video or any file) and you want that in a "FOLDER" (They call them BUNDLES) called PROJECTS, but ALSO you want the SAME info in a "folder" called URGENT and ALSO in one called KEY CUSTOMERS. With this program the one entry can be dragged to each or infinate Bundles and removed from any without affecting the rest. This is HOW people manage. I have a report and I need to discuss it with 4 people. I have PEOPLE FOLDERS and drag this report to all 4. As I discuss with each, I make notes for THAT discussion, and can then delete the report from that person's "discuss" folder. This program is fast, accurate and well desigjned. 10 Thumbs up for a program that deals with complex issues very simply. No curve to up time. It's just there and you get it intuitively.

Keep It Solve a Number of Problems for Me

I like saving webpages, PDFs and other documents and my own notes in one place. "Keep It" does a good job of organizing everything with effective tagging and search systems. I'm still testing. After using Keep It for a month, I think it is going to replace the other 4 apps I was using for these purposes. Not only does Keep It work better in terms of UX, it also comes with a one-time fee instead of a subscription. I'm not against subscriptions, developers need to stay afloat, but one-time fees (per major upgrade) are helpful sometimes.

This might be asking a lot, combining Keep It with a great reader app could be really useful. I like News Explorer very much as a reader.

One more item, this might be controversial, I prefer getting my apps in the Apple App Stores. I know they get a cut, but App Store apps are vetted, imperfectly, by Apple against their security and privacy terms which is better than living in the Digital Wild West, in my opinion.
