Okay LINER for Chrome is getting seriously useful. highlight any webpage, one-click export to Evernote. I'm telling you Evernote & Pocket, whoever acquires LINER will win the read-it-later wars. People LOVE highlighting!

I have been thinking for about 2 years on a better way to highlight, collect, and share quotes/insights you find surfing the web or reading a book. There is so much information on the internet that it’s crucial to find ways to filter and curate the most relevant content.

I just had a tiny tech-gasm. Thank you so much. I finally can have both & won't be switching between Instapaper & Pocket anymore. You guys have already earned 5 stars. I've never seen this level of customer support and interaction.

Great, just needs better support from Apple

Update: the ads for premium get annoying, and the subscription costs are insane. I’m a casual user, I’m not using this for work, and I’m just not going to pay $10 or more a month forever for this. Give me a one time payment and I might consider it.

Fulfilled my need to highlight web pages and store snapshots of them for research, writing, sharing etc.

It seems that Apple doesn’t provide the right API for them to be able to capture a highlight from a selection in Safari, it would be nice if Apple would add that feature for them.

As is you just captor’s the whole page and the app makes it easy to add the highlight right after that.

New Restrictions to Basic Version

I have had the basic version for some time now. I rated it three stars due to equal my love/hate of the app. For function, it’s great - based on that alone I’d give it 4 stars. There are enough little things that would keep me from rating a full five stars, but nothing major. I used to use it quite a bit and was fine with the color limitations of the basic version, etc. I don’t utilize it enough to justify the subscription. However, recently - the last several months perhaps? - I’ve been limited to 7 highlights per article/doc. This is a deal breaker. I don’t use it enough to buy a subscription, not even at a fraction of what it costs. But b/c the app itself is not terrible, and the creators obviously have an vested interest making money in order to keep the app current and adding improvements, so I can’t pan the whole app just for that. For the purposes of a bare bones basic plan, I wish you’d raise the cap for highlights. I’m not a prolific highlighter, but I usually use it for length articles in order to pare it down to the bare minimum. I hit the limit every time now. I’ll keep checking in for awhile to see if they change the cap, otherwise I’ll look for another solution.

Reeks of unprofessional product management

I really like the concept behind this app but the execution is less than ideal. This review is concerned mainly with the iPad version of the app. Issues that I’ve found: Highlights from one article get carried over to other articles in your folder completely randomly. I had to manually delete each of the highlights to keep the organization clean. This would happen with every article in the folder.
Then there’s the premium subscription! I paid almost 50$ for it and it’s only for a year! Considering how buggy and incomplete the app is, that’s too much money. But that’s not all! I never received an invoice or subscription confirmation email or anything remotely similar. This is when I realized there is seriously something amiss with this app. Now I regret having paid that money. Very unprofessional!
