Bookmarking on Dynomantle

You see a great headline. It's on a topic that you are interested in and the headline implies a perspective that is new to you.

You click on the link. Then you see this:
28 minutes! Even 10 minutes is a bit much right now, you're just killing time while waiting for a meeting to start. So you bookmark the site to read later.

When do you go back to that bookmark? How do you know which ones haven't been read? What if you only have 5 minutes here and there, but not a full 20 minutes for that long article?

The end result is you just bookmark that article, but never get back to it. Then you add another bookmark. And another. And another.
I certainly had this problem. I gave up and stopped bookmarking sites at one point.

I got so tired of not being able to read great articles though that I built Dynomantle. I thought deeply about all the issues with bookmarking today and found a series of simple solutions.

1 - Separate bookmarks into a reading list and make it easy to toggle
There's lots of ways people choose to organize the bookmark, but one that is universal to everyone is a simple question: Have I read this or not?
Dynomantle allows you to organize notes and bookmarks in any way you choose under "Topics". However, within each topic, your bookmarks are separated between the read and the unread.

There's also a general reading list that groups together all your unread bookmarks from all topics. You can sort this by oldest bookmarks, newest bookmarks, or allow our algorithm to sort them for you.

2 - Save the progress of reading an article
For longer articles, Dynomantle saves your progress as you read an article. You can stop at any time and when you come back to that article, Dynomantle will load the article right where you left off.

You don't need to dedicate large blocks of time to read long articles anymore! You can read them in time chunks that work for you.

3 - Make it easy to add links as new bookmarks
One of the biggest distractions of reading an online article is the links referenced in that article. Dynomantle helps you here by allowing you to quickly bookmark those links rather than clicking on them. Those bookmarks are also grouped with the article you are currently reading to help remind you why you bookmarked that link.

These simple features make managing your bookmarks way way easier. You can finally start making progress reading through your backlog rather than feel bad about it!

Most of you also have bookmarks already in lots of places. Dynomantle provides imports for bookmarks from Chrome and Firefox.

If you also have a lot of links in a text file somewhere, you can paste those links into a note in Dynomantle and those links will automatically be added as bookmarks.

That's it! Hopefully you'll find Dynomantle as much of a boon to your life as I have.
