Say hello to Ditto, AI for bookmarks ✨

Here at Dropmark, we’ve been at bookmarks a long time — twelve years to be exact. Like everyone else, we’re guilty of piling up interesting links in a “Read it later” collection, and then forgetting to actually read them despite our best intentions. Who is going to save us from this ever-growing backlog?

TLDR: Ditto is a friendly AI assistant here to help you organize your bookmarks and read it later smarter.

Powered by OpenAI’s ChatGPT, Ditto is the ultimate tool for your Dropmark collections. Ditto is 100% optional, and you can opt-in at the collection level. With every link you save in a Ditto-enabled collection, Ditto rolls up its digital sleeves and gets down to business. You’ll automatically see:

  1. Articles distilled into a brief summary (saving you precious reading time)
  2. Suggested relevant #tags (making organization a breeze)

  • Extract formatted recipes 🥗
  • Get bullet points from an article 📌
  • Recommend related links 🌐
  • Compare products for smarter shopping 🛍️
  • Fetch addresses and crucial info 📍
  • Create tidy shopping lists 📝
  • And anything else you can think of! 💭

Introducing document scanning for iOS

We’re excited to announce document scanning is now available in our iPhone and iPad apps.

Now you can quickly scan photos, sketches, multi-page documents, and more on the go. Dropmark saves your scans as high-quality PDFs to your collection of choice.

To scan documents in Dropmark for iOS:

  1. Tap the Add (+) button and select Scan Documents.
  2. Place your document in view of the camera.
  3. When in Auto mode, Dropmark will automatically scan your document. If you need to manually capture a scan, tap the round shutter button ⚪️ (or one of the phone’s volume buttons). Then drag the corners to adjust the scan to fit the page, and tap Keep Scan.
  4. Tap Save to complete, or add additional pages to the document.

Happy scanning!

If you love Dropmark, we’d love for you to leave us a review on the App store to help reach more people!

Collection descriptions are here!

We’ve been slowly rolling out new features and visual updates to collections over the past few weeks. Now available on both web and iOS are collection descriptions.

Collection descriptions have a prominent location above your items, and provide a text-based space for additional context, instructions for your team and collaborators, and (of course) your favorite emojis. Get creative with it!

Along with this update, we also now show avatars of teams and folks who have collaborator access to the collection, so you can easily see who’s included at a glance.

This is a small step in a larger visual update, so stay tuned for more :)

Dropmark turns 10

Once upon a time, ten whole internet years ago, a little software service called Dropmark was born. (We mention internet years because that’s like, at least 70 in people years.)

It all started in 2011 when we noticed a problem with our client workflow. It was too easy to get sucked into scroll holes while trying to be productive, and even easier for our work to get buried in email leading to confusion and frustration. We decided to build something better; a tool that wasn’t a time suck and let you get back to what’s important.

That’s part of what makes us different.

At Dropmark, our goals continue to be: simplicity, effectiveness, and privacy. We want to be a breath of fresh air in the software cloud that you can rely on. We developed Dropmark with a sustainable mindframe and hope to be here until the end of time. By allowing you to control who sees your collections, who can collaborate with you, and never showing you ads or an endless wall of posts to distract, your work will shine.

To celebrate this milestone, we’re looking back on the past decade of Dropmark. Celebrate with us →
