Reminder Bear - Single Use Bookmarks
« on: July 05, 2011, 04:52:56 AM »
I love this webservice.  :-* You know you sometimes want to revisit a page in a while to see what's changed or if something has been added to a discussion? Maybe you're waiting for a beta to open or you have posted to a forum that doesn't have topic notification (or it is a regular website). Simply click the reminder bear bookmark and customize when you want to get an email reminding you off the page. It's like a disposable bookmark, and lets you get on with more important things. I find it very liberating, try it out yourself.

Reminder Bear is a service that lets you create single-use bookmarks. Save a page with the bookmarklet, and Reminder Bear will email it to you a week later.

Or you can easily customize your reminder time using the overlay panel.

Hmm... I use Read It Later for this... I wonder if the e-mailing aspect would work better than the check-list aspect...

Well I use both Instapaper for reading articles later and Pinboard has a read later bookmarks section (which I use mainly for videos) - both of which work best when you have decided you have time to spare.

Where Reminder Bear and Changedetection.com come in is to remind you to check out something (have you considered buying these fancy headphones on amazon but wanted to wait a few days to see if you still wanted it then) or as soon as things have changed in case of changedetection.

I have used Reminder Bear to check back for answers on certain Stack Exchabge sites I don't visit otherwise and also on forums that I wanted to follow a discussion but not become a member. So if you don't mind using another tool there's definately a niche for people.

Hope this clarifies things :)

Kinda off topic, but Read It Later Pro for Android is free on today's Amazon Android AppStore Giveaway of the Day or whatever it's called.
