- Rated 3 out of 5by A Web Developer, 6 months agoI'm a paid Raindrop.io subscriber and I think the service is great. The Firefox extension less so, for on simple reason: It refuses to log me in. I can log into the site just fine but the extension doesn't connect to that existing session.
Even when I do manage to log in, in every extension (Chrome, Firefox, even the mobile app) there's a good chance I'll have been logged out when I come back to the app.
I reached out for support before and was able to get logged in, but now it's no longer working again. I'm sure that I could reach out to the developer, troubleshoot it again, etc., thus why I'm giving it 3 stars instead of 1. That also wouldn't stop it from logging me out every 90 days or whatever, since that session length is clearly an intentional choice on the part of the developer.
I've been using (and paying for) this service for over a year for the convenience it offers. Having to use the website or a different browser to use it drops that convenience down a couple notches.

Visit https://api.raindrop.io, press Ctrl+I > Permissions > Set Cookies > Allow.
- Rated 3 out of 5by jjb2009, 2 years agoOne annoying thing about Firefox extension is that it opens in a small window. In the Edge extension for raindrop.io it opens to most of full screen.

- Rated 3 out of 5by thewallflowerest93, 3 years agoI had Papaly before (which I REALLY liked, but what I didn't like was not being able to see a preview of the bookmarked link [it just makes it so much easier for me when I'm able to do that]) but I decided to give this one a go because of previously listed reason.
What I mainly love about it is the Preview Screenshots and description text of what the Bookmark is about and the info it contains. It just really helps map out my "mind of saved bookmarks" into a Bookmark Manager, successfully.
I do wish though, that the extra features were free (For example, you have to pay to make Nested Collections. Unlike Papaly, where you can do so for free.)
I also wish it was more customizable when it comes to aesthetics. I do LOVE the display Icon(s) feature, but other than that, I realllly do hateeee how it looks.
For instance, the Main Bookmark Collection Panel to the left is simply just too hard on the eyes. :/ It immediately signals to my brain, "ALERT! MESS, MESS, OUT OF CONTROL MESS!", even though they are technically "organized." Or rather, I should say, "specifically gathered together in one column, separated merely by text rows" 😑😒 I just feel like all my bookmarks are CRAMMED together.
I REALLY want them to work on this!!!! Especially since you have to pay for it (well, it is free but I want the features that cost you, so yeah; you get my point. I pretty much feel ripped off.) *Note: This was my first time paying for the subscription for Raindrop's extra features. (and I honestly really miss the aspect of Papaly, but there were other issues I had w/ it, that I didn't mention. Thus, I won't be returning to use it.) BUT, anyway, getting to my point, I most likely WON'T be renewing my subscription for it, UNLESS I don't find a Bookmark Manager that really, really meets my needs (even if I have to pay for it), but hopefully soon, I'll find a better one that I love :/
