Raindrop - 1

I love Raindrop as a bookmark service.
Early this month, I thought of removing Readwise from my optimized stack and replacing it with Raindrop. So I pay to upgrade Raindrop Pro to utilize it fully. Unfortunately, after using it for a while, I found that I can’t replace Readwise with Raindrop for a few reasons.

  1. Raindrop highlight feature is not really that great and smooth compared to Readwise

  2. Raindrop can save the Twitter Thread links, but Readwise can compile the whole thread.

  3. Raindrop save the article for read-it-later, not clean compared to Readwise.

  4. I manage to get some discount for Readwise services, which is still not cheap as Raindrop but is closer.

So I refunded my Raindrop account. It’s a good product but doesn’t fit what I do.


So you don’t love Raindrop after all? My finger was hovering over the buy button after reading that first sentence. Just kidding. The last thing I want is anything that keeps me interacting more with Twitter.
