Description

Plinky helps you easily save links from any device so you can enjoy them later.

With Plinky’s share extension on iPhone and iPad or your favorite browser’s extensions you can save articles, videos, social media posts, and more with just one tap.

VIEW YOUR SAVED LINKS
View all of your saved links or search through your links when you're ready to come back to them. You can even pin links to the top of your home feed for easy access.

ORGANIZE YOUR LINKS
Use Folders and Tags to organize your links based on common themes.

Not sure where to start? Choose from suggested tags including: news, videos, recipes, entertainment, fitness, games, productivity, and more.

SYNC YOUR LINKS
Connect with other apps to save links to Plinky from Chrome, Safari, Firefox, Zapier, and more. And available in the Mac App Store, Plinky Mini makes it easy to save links on your Mac.

CUSTOMIZE PLINKY
You can make Plinky yours by customizing how your links, tags, and folders look and feel. Everyone has their preferences and Plinky respects that, you can change how everything looks from colors to design to layout. This makes Plinky *your* tool, whether you want an inbox for your links, a place for links to read later, or your personal archive of the web.

SHORTCUTS
Anything you can do in Plinky you can do in Shortcuts, allowing you to build powerful workflows that use your links saved in Plinky with other apps, or use other apps to save links in Plinky. These work on the iPhone, iPad, and Mac, or from Spotlight and Siri. It’s never been easier to save or find a link no matter where you are or what you’re doing.

SAVE LINKS FROM ANYWHERE
If Plinky’s share extension on iPhone and iPad, browser extensions, and custom integrations aren’t enough, Plinky also supports an API for developers to save links how they want to save links.

GET MORE WITH PLINKY PRO
You’re able to save up to 50 links for free, plus create limited folders, tags, and pinned links.

With Plinky Pro you get access to unlimited saved links, tags, folders, and pinned links. Plinky Pro offers two auto-renewing subscription options:
Annual subscription: $39.99 / year
Monthly subscription: $3.99 / month

The subscription will automatically renew unless turned off in your iTunes Account Settings at least 24 hours before the current period ends. You can go to your iTunes Account settings to manage your subscription and turn off auto-renew. Your iTunes Account will be charged when the purchase is confirmed.

You can also choose a lifetime option with one payment of $159.99 that will never renew.

What’s New

Version 1.0.9

This version fixes a crash, offers a new way to lookup a user's Plinky ID, and addresses a few minor layout issues.

- There was a crash that would occur on some iPads and Macs when trying to create a new Folder or Tag, it should now be resolved.
- Your Plinky ID is now retrievable by using the deeplink plinky:///x-callback-url/actions/lookup?value=plinky_id, which will show a prompt to allow other apps or Shortcuts to access your Plinky ID.
- The Folders/Tags sidebar on iPad and Mac was slightly off-color, my apologies for missing that detail.

I use this app every day!

I started using this app when it was in beta and it’s easily become a go-to app that I use every day. Whenever I see a TikTok video that I want to share with a friend, I save it to Plinky. When I come across an article I want to read later, I save it to Plinky. When I see a recipe I want to try, I save it to Plinky. I love how easy it is to use the share extension on any site so I can come back later and easily view all of my saved links.

Unimpressive and expensive

It appears to work as advertised, but it doesn’t do anything new. It saves links via Apple share sheets, which you can label and put in folders once you’ve saved them. You can’t set tags and folder from the share sheet, which is faster initially, but you now have a new inbox to keep up with. There are a number of other apps, some one-time purchases, which have better features. There’s no magic either. For example, in Apple Mail you can’t use share sheets for an email, but you can for selected text within an email. Plinky can’t do anything with email. I don’t think it uses iCloud, which would put your links in the hands of a third party if you want to sync it across multiple devices. Finally, there’s the annual subscription cost: in my opinion, it’s high for what the app does.

Developer Response ,

Hiya, very much can appreciate that Plinky isn't the right app for you, but just in case it helps change your mind in due time I wanted to let you know about some upcoming features and hopefully assuage your concerns about privacy.

I am very transparent about how I handle user data, you can view the full privacy policy here: https://plinky.app/privacy-policy

In plain English, my personal view is that I'm morally opposed to the existence of the digital ads industry, and I've built Plinky with that in mind. Plinky's privacy policy is the definitive source of truth for who data is shared with, but I'll say directly that your data is never re-sold and is only shared expressly for the purpose of running Plinky the service. All of the services Plinky uses are paid services, as is Plinky, to avoid any user's data being harvested as best I can.

The reason Plinky doesn't use iCloud is because of Plinky's integrations with other services, it was much easier to build a server to handle all of the data and work with browser extensions, Zapier, and other apps — it can be reasonably challenging to do that and ensure that data integrity when using Apple's CloudKit framework.

Coming in two releases (after I build a feature to import your links from other services that people have been asking for) will be post-save quick actions. Right now you can tap the Edit button to categorize links into Folders or add Tags, but soon you'll be able to do that, add a reminder, pin a link, copy the link, re-share the link, etc, all with one tap from Plinky's share extension. I hope that will improve the experience of saving and organizing links for people like yourself, because I truly want you to do anything you want with Plinky.

As for a subscription, I completely understand if that's a dealbreaker. As a solo developer I've set Plinky's price to find a way to sustainably run Plinky as my full time job, and based on the value I believe the app provides users. If you don't get that amount of value out of the price that's completely reasonable! I wouldn't pay for something I didn't get value out of, and have no ill will at you not wishing to do so either.

Sorry Plinky wasn't for you, but I hope that you give Plinky a shot in the future and find it more to your liking!

Crazy fast way to save and organize links

Part of what stops me from really taking care to manage my bookmarks is the laborious process of going through folders and nesting said folders inside of folders.

Plinky completely changes my approach to this by doing two things: making the UX of saving links extremely fast and leveraging both tags and folders.

Bonus points that the UI is just so unlike stock iOS which is such a huge plus. I’m personally into apps that stray from the norm of making the UI a little whacky and their own

Love this app and am working on migrating everything into it.
