As the web grows, our bookmarks and favorites grow with it. The enormity of bookmarks can become overwhelming, not just in volume but in managing them as well. Pistashio is a sort of online bookmarking site that helps you manage and organize your favorites while saving them in the cloud.
The web capturing service is slightly different than traditional online bookmarking services. Pistashio encourages organization right from the get go by probing users for additional details about their bookmark or Stash as they call them. Additional details can be anything and is a great way to quickly distinguish one item from another.
As users stash their favorites, Pistashio automatically saves the URL along with any additional details and location if pertinent. From there, stashes are sorted into 1 of 5 categories – Eat & Drink, Watch, Read, Listen and See & Do. Each category can be drilled down further for more precise saving. For instance, stashing a new restaurant website would most likely be filed under Eat & Drink and then under a Restaurants subcategory. Beyond standard stashing, Pistashio offers a Remind me Later feature and options to share your stashes socially through Twitter or Facebook. In our restaurant example, Pistashio could remind you when 2-for-1 specials are and tweet the information out to your followers.
Users can stash anything they find on the web and Pistashio provides a couple easy ways to do it. For Google Chrome users a browser extension is available or bookmarklet for all other browsers. We’d like to see an import feature on the list for future improvements, but otherwise this is a nice option to get your bookmarks and yourself organized.
