What is the history and popularity of the app?

Developed to simplify the management of user’s bookmarks, Tidy Favorites was designed to greatly improve the experience of updating and maintaining an ever growing collection of favorites that can pile up over the years. This allows users to spend more time experiencing the content that they have chosen to save, rather than spend time delving through scores of old and outdated bookmarks, looking for a name that may or may not adequately represent the site’s content.

What are the differences to other apps?

Tidy Favorites provides users an authoritative, searchable database of all of their bookmarks, accessible on any browser that they choose to run. Users are able to set and resize images from the website in order to provide visual cues that may more adequately help them identify which favorites they are looking for. Tidy Favorites allows users to sort their bookmark collection by tabs and folders as well, providing users with a highly effective visual tool to navigate their bookmarks, ensuring that bookmarks even created years in the past will be easy to browse and identify.

Alternative Apps
How does the web app look and feel to use?

The Tidy Favorites maintains an outdated interface. Users are given a desktop format in which to organize their bookmarks, at the top of which are a search bar with the option to search various sources, such as Wikipedia, Google and The binary code theme on the main page doesn’t really seem to fit the overall intent of the program, outside of the fact that it’s obviously technology based, but this is a trivial complaint.

How does the registration process work?

Users don’t register for access to Tidy Favorites per se, instead, users install the application after downloading it via the link on the homepage on the right hand side of the screen. When installing, users can choose between the New Online Version which allows users to save their bookmarks on the web, therefore giving them access to their bookmarks regardless of whether they’re using their personal computers or mobile devices. Alternately the user can attempt to install the old version on the machine. However, when doing so and attempting to run the application, the user is presented with a page informing them that they have cancelled support of the application and that they need to convert to Tidy Favorites Online. The illusion of choice here is more than a bit frustrating.

What does it cost to use the application?

Tidy Favorites is free to use; however, they do offer a Pro version via their website, which costs a one-time fee of around $20. The pro version of tidy favorites allows users to synchronize their bookmarks among multiple machines, and includes a full year of free updates, among other features.
