dotTech Exclusive: 30 free licenses of Linkman Pro!

Linkman Pro was one of the first software I reviewed way back when dotTech was first launched; yet, to this day I remember it because of how much I was impressed by it. So, with great pleasure I would like to announce a dotTech-Outer Technologies giveaway of 30 free licenses of Linkman Pro!

    I forgot to enter earlier, like Karl said, I hope I’m not to late.
    1- I’ve never used a bookmarks or favorites manager before or synced between browsers/computers.
    2-I would use Linkman Pro mostly for syncing bookmarks between FireFox and IE. Altho with all the other things it does, I could end up using it for much more.
    3-Having never used Linkman before, I can’t give any ideas for improvements.
    4-From the sounds of what it’s supposed to be able to do, I’d say it’s probably a fair price. Lower is always better tho.

  2. Karl

    Hope I’m not too late for this drawing!
    1)      For cross-browser / machine bookmarks I use Yahoo Bookmarks
    2)      The main use will be to try and keep a master set of links between my home computers and browsers and my work computers. 
    3)      I haven’t used Linkman Pro so I can’t really make any suggestions but if I don’t win this I’ll try Linkman Lite.
    4)      $25 seems fair but I would be much more likely to buy it if it were in the $10-20 range.
    I am a donor.

    First, I state that I don’t want to have linkman Pro because the last time I tried its free version, I was surprised that It doesn’t support arabic language. I think the same is true for other Rt to Lt languages. I think they should consider supporting these language to expand the base of users.

    Have you ever used a bookmarks/favorites manager or synced bookmarks/favorites across multiple browsers or computers? If yes, please name the software/service you have used.

    I think that Xmarks (formerly FoxMarks) is the best bookmark manager. Having FF, IE and Google Chrome addons gives it a positive point. Other positives: Online Sync – Sync Other browsers – Tag suuport – Tag suggestion – Similar websites and more. One more is It is FREE.
     

    What will be the main task you will use Linkman Pro for (sync bookmarks across browsers, sync bookmarks across computers, backup bookmarks, etc.)?

    I don’t want or need linkman.

    Is there anything Outer Technologies can improve in Linkman Pro (bug fixes, more features, etc.)? If yes, please specify.

    I think they should consider uincode support – translate program in other language – keep an eye on XMARKS

    Do you think $25 (for a single license) is a fair price for Linkman Pro? If no, please specify the price you think is fair.

    I think 25$ is very high price to a bookmark manager.
    10-15 $ is good and affordable.
     

  4. root

    1) No
    2) backup bookmarks and syncing
    3) Features: export bookmarks to html with different choices for templates so I can use it on my website
    4) $25 is not that expensive, but with many free alternatives around it really needs to stand out of the crowd. $25 would be a great price if you could use it, for personal use only,  with a site license

    1. Yes, I currently use xmarks to sync my bookmarks and passwords between computers and browsers (firefox and chrome; don’t use IE often).
    2.  Mainly to sync bookmarks between browsers and computers.  Ability to backup bookmarks is pretty much taken care of syncing between computers.
    3. Haven’t used it yet; will try the lite version.  Main suggestion would be possible compatibility with linux or mac.  Xmarks is compatible with Linux.
    4. Considering the amount of time used to gather your bookmarks, $25 is probably a fair amount to charge for a full-featured application of this sort.

  8. rover3500

    I always used google to sync all my bookmarks across browsers or opera bookmark syncing if i’m using opera.Have also used xmarks.
    I will use it for backing up my bookmarks ,checking for duplicates and sorting as i have hundreds of bookies..

    Because it is so customizable i can’t really think of anything that can be improved,and i’ve only used lite version so i’m sure pro version is even better

    I could never afford $25 for a program unless i absolutely have to have it(which is only security software so far)…I think $15 is more like it and would end up making more dosh due to many more sales(my opinion)

    Excellent program,not one i could buy ,but would be great to have full version,I hope i get one!

  9. jelson

    Very nice Ashraf!!!  Sign me up please… The answers:
     
    1. Yes.  I’ve used Plain Old Favorites for Firefox
     
    2. Main task will be to synchronize bookmarks across browers, make backups and hopefully to *easily & intuitively* organize my bookmarks.  I also hope to be able to regularly create a master bookmark list on USB drive as well.
     
    3. Haven’t worked with Linkman before, but inspecting their webpages suggests they have done a very thorough job.
    4. Is $25 fair?  Quite possibly.  It seems to be a very thorough, mature and well-thought-out product.  Of course, in my case I live below the poverty level and there are very few programs that I purchase.  The question for Outland, of course, is finding that pricing sweet-spot that maximizes their market share vs cash flow.

    Please enter me in the drawing as this looks quite useful.
    1. Have you ever used a bookmarks/favorites manager or synced bookmarks/favorites across multiple browsers or computers? If yes, please name the software/service you have used.
    Yes; I have been using Foxmarks/Xmarks for over 2 years now to sync my bookarks between Firefox/Chrome/IE.  If it supported Opera then I would not need other sync software.  I keep two accounts for Xmarks so I can periodically make a secondary backup in case anything happens to my primary account.
     
    2. What will be the main task you will use Linkman Pro for (sync bookmarks across browsers, sync bookmarks across computers, backup bookmarks, etc.)?
    My main use for Linkman Pro will be to keep Firefox/Chrome/IE in sync with Opera rather than the manual method I use every quarter now (which puts me out of date fairly quickly in Opera).
     
    3. Is there anything Outer Technologies can improve in Linkman Pro (bug fixes, more features, etc.)? If yes, please specify.
    I see it supports Opera Hotlist, but I see nothing about Opera Bookarks.  That would be my main use so I would say this is a missing feature if it does not already support it.
     
    4. Do you think $25 (for a single license) is a fair price for Linkman Pro? If no, please specify the price you think is fair.
    Considering that Xmarks does most of what I need for free why would I want to pay for a license?  I have gotten by so far by manually syncing my bookarks with a basic HTML export of my bookamrks and importing them into Opera.  I think it would be more likely to sell better if the price came down at least $10 per license.
     

  11. heavy

    1. Have you ever used a bookmarks/favorites manager or synced bookmarks/favorites across multiple browsers or computers? If yes, please name the software/service you have used.
     
    I have used am deadlink a couple of different times and while I think it could be a good program, I was not happy with the results.  It would indicate that a link was no longer active or not at the address which was listed in the bookmark and yet if I clicked on the bookmark manually, it took me to the site right away.
     
    2. What will be the main task you will use Linkman Pro for (sync bookmarks across browsers, sync bookmarks across computers, backup bookmarks, etc.)?
     
    Since I have been using computers since the early 80′s I have accumulated a ton of bookmarks and needless to say, they have taken over my computer.  I have tried to manually check all of the bookmarks but before long I get discouraged and give up.
    Linkman Pro would be really useful to me, especially now.  I just purchased a laptop pc and an iPod Touch so I am really going to want to be very organized where my bookmarks are concerned.  I don’t want to have a bunch of non-working bookmarks, especially on the iPod as space can be a premium with it.
     
    3. Is there anything Outer Technologies can improve in Linkman Pro (bug fixes, more features, etc.)? If yes, please specify.
     
    I have yet to use Linkman Lite or Pro yet, but am downloading the Lite version right now and am going to install it as soon as it is downloaded.  I have downloaded the Lite version and had it organize my bookmarks and must say that I was pleasantly surprised by the speed with which it accomplished that function.  I am hesitant to make suggestions about improvements.  I did try to do a couple of things with the Lite version and got a message that it was only available in the Pro version.
     
    4. Do you think $25 (for a single license) is a fair price for Linkman Pro? If no, please specify the price you think is fair.
     
    I think $25 is a fair price for a program if it works as advertised.  I have purchased several programs from companies and individuals if I felt that it was quality “bang” for my buck.

    Hi!
     
    1- I use mainly 2 apps to sync, backup and manage across computers and browsers (I use Firefox (windows/linux), chrome (windows/linux) and Opera (windows/linux), which are AM-Deadlink and XMarks.
    2- Well if the app can be used under Wine and if it can subst my both apps and give more features than both together, I will used it in place of them to manage, backup and sync my bookmarks across OS, computers and browsers.
    3- Never use it so I can’t give an opinion here.
    4- I believe in open source (GPL) and on the GNU project so it’s difficult for me to say a price for a piece of software, and before someone complain about this In the beginning of my IT career I was a software developer. In windows environment I only use legal (giveaway, pre-installed or freeware) software, the same applies to linux.

  13. Daryl

    1. Yes, I’ve used a bookmarks/favorites manager and synced bookmarks/favorites across multiple browsers and computers? My experience was so terrible and the computers retired that I can’t even remember the downloaded software that I used.

    2. My main task for using Linkman Pro would be to sync my laptop and desktop, to play with different browsers via the synched links and to keep my extensive bookmarks organized… very interested in the basket, rating and other tools.

    3. Outer Technologies might consider exploring usefulness features, such as speech, gesturing and the like… organization and sync are not”focus” type tasks and should be quick, easy and well integrated as part of ordinary browser use/ experience. Sharing bookmarks in a home/home biz network would be killer… nearly every day. Partial sync’ing and sharing would also be a strong talking piece for myself and with my clients.

    4. $25 (for a single license) is not as much of an issue as the site license price for my home/ home-biz network… particularly my tablet and desktop, but also the other computers on the net and with which I communicate (via Internet). Add the above (3) and $20-25 or more is fine… assuming the deal for sync’ing and sharing AT LEAST on our LAN is ALSO worthwhile. Problem is that handling only one computer or computer pair in this day and age is impractical. A very low price site license (don’t know what is fair) or winning would motivate me further.

  14. IVAN

    Hello!
    1. I have not used favorites manager across multiple browsers or computers before.
    2. The main task I will use Linkman Pro will be to sync the bookmarks between the computers in my home network. Right now I am using a USB flash drive, and- I believe- Linkman Pro will be a lot more easy.
    3. In fact- I have never used Linkman Pro, (I even did not know it exist…). So- I could not report any bugs so far.
    4. Well- $25 is not a big deal, but- would be great if I can use one license for 3 computers for example… Anyway- in my opinion- $25 is ok.
    Finally- thanks for this opportunity, guys!

    Shelly F
    Q1.Have you ever used a bookmarks/favorites manager or synced bookmarks/favorites across multiple browsers or computers?  If yes, please name the software/service you have used.
    A1 No I have not however I would love to try as I am a University student and have a desktop, laptop and netbook that I am constantly in a state of flux with because I never remember where I bookmarked something and don’t have time to be confused or frustrated.
    Q2 What will be the main task you will use Linkman Pro for (sync bookmarks across browsers, sync bookmarks across computers, backup bookmarks, etc.)?
    A2 I will probably use Linkman Pro for all of the above depending upon it’s ease of use.
    Q3 Is there anything Outer Technologies can improve in Linkman Pro (bug fixes, more features, etc.)? If yes, please specify.
    A3 Ease of use and easily understood interface would be what I am looking for. Therefore my hope is Linkman Pro is that.

    Q4 Do you think $25 (for a single license) is a fair price for Linkman Pro? If no, please specify the price you think is fair.
    A4 I can’t price something I have not tried, however, I will tell you if it is simple and user friendly I would pay $20

  16. Barry Zakes

    Have you ever used a bookmarks/favorites manager or synced bookmarks/favorites across multiple browsers or computers? If yes, please name the software/service you have used.

    Generally do exports/imports to html

    What will be the main task you will use Linkman Pro for (sync bookmarks across browsers, sync bookmarks across computers, backup bookmarks, etc.)?

    Both sync bookmarks across browsers and across my desktop & laptop.

    Is there anything Outer Technologies can improve in Linkman Pro (bug fixes, more features, etc.)? If yes, please specify.

    Have not tried yet.  Will go to see if there is a trial.

    Do you think $25 (for a single license) is a fair price for Linkman Pro? If no, please specify the price you think is fair.

    I think that you would sell more at 19.99 but 25 is in the ballpark

  17. tolkite

    1. Long time ago, on a mac, URL Manager Pro
    2.In short, unifying and sorting all grown stuff in one place
    3.Will see when using it
    4.I can´t judge so far, didn´t look for market with this focus yet

  18. Gary Ockwell

    1. Have you ever used…..
    ->Goodsync…
    2. What will be the main task….
    –>Keep track of bookmarks across computers
    3. Is there anything …can improve …
    —> a combination of the existing bookmarks with an option to save offline and edit like scrapbook…
    4. Do you think $25 (for a single license)…
    —-> no more than $15…

  19. MerleOne

    Yes, Linkstash mainly
    Sync across computers first, occasionally across browsers (IE & Opera ), also backup bookmarks using a single file
    The ability to be used within opera (Integration within Opera, not just import/export)
    I think a fair price would be around $15 with 1 year of updates/upgrades and $30 for a lifetime license.

    Thanks for organizing this draw.

  20. Robin

    1. Nope. Have never used such software before.
    2. All of the above. I am starting my foray into “other” (i.e., non IE) browsers, so could see it being handy there. I do use 2 computers and have been manually syncing important bookmarks. Of course, backup would be handy.
    3. I couldn’t tell you now as I have never used the software (Pro or Lite) before. (I hope to be able to report back on it though!)
    4. $25 seems  a little steep for such a product, but perhaps my opinion would change after using it and observing it’s true utility and convenience.

    Thank you for this opportunity and the useful information and free downloads since I discovered dottech.org a week ago!

  21. AngelusPL

    1. I never use a programs like Linkman
    2. For Bookmarks backup and synchronise them bettwen multiple pc’s
    3.Im unable to give answer cause I havent use software like this.
    4.Yes, It’s fair price.

  22. Dhiraj Sinha

    Hello Ashraf,
    I use FruitfulTime BookmarkManager.
    If I win a license for Linkman Pro I would use it to backup my bookmarks and sync them between IE and FF.
    In my opinion the feature to export the bookmarks database in “encrypted form” would be a nice addition.
    If the license provided for $25 entitles one for liftime free upgrades,then it’s worth the asking price.Otherwise it should be $10.
    Thanks..

  23. Des

    Thanks for another great opportunity to win some excellent sw Ashraf.
    My answers are as follows:
    1-xmarks add-on in firefox
    2-The main use would be for syncing bookmarks across multiple pcs.This would be very useful for me as I work in research.The ability to retrieve keywords from web pages would also be extremely useful.
    3-Haven’t used the product yet so am unable to give a fair answer.
    4-Again this is difficult to answer without giving the product a try.However any product over $19.99 would be more than an impulse purchase so the current price probably deters possible customers.

    Good luck everyone!

  24. Lee

    @Lee: A note in my above post it should read “(i.e. a higher volume at a mid range price sometime made more money than selling less volume at a “higher price“)…I typed “lower price” when I meant “higher price”.

  25. Lee

    1. Have you ever used a bookmarks/favorites manager or synced bookmarks/favorites across multiple browsers or computers? If yes, please name the software/service you have used.
    Answer: 

    Weave in Firefox is great.
    URL Gather – is old and only works in Firefox and IE – it has no chrome support!
    Transmute – is a really good bookmark converter.
    Am Deadlink – it is good for weeding out useless, expired old and dead bookmarks.
    I have used all the above with Transmute and Weave being my favourite.  Yet, they all seem to lack something which is frustrating.  On the contrary, I have heard so much about Linkman Pro and I would LOVE to win a license as I believe it is really  the best product of its kind on the market and it is a class leading product. This is one piece of software I REALLY need and is one I would get great use out of – e.g. I cannot use Firefox at work and have literally hundreds of work related bookmarks that I would love to sync to my home PC or another PC if I change jobs! Linkman would be invaluable for this purpose.  Indeed I use multiple different browsers on multiple different computers (at home and at work – hence the need for a license of the Pro version!) and I get really frustrated not having access to all my frequently used bookmarks (especially e.g. government websites for legislation and company information sites research). I cannot emphasize just how much I would love a copy of this software and how useful it would be to me. 
    2. What will be the main task you will use Linkman Pro for (sync bookmarks across browsers, sync bookmarks across computers, backup bookmarks, etc.)?
    Answer: 

    This is a hard one to answer as I would really use ALL the program features in combination! However, if I had to pick a main feature it would have to be the ability to sync bookmarks across computers. More than any other feature the ability to do this just floats my boat!
    3. Is there anything Outer Technologies can improve in Linkman Pro (bug fixes, more features, etc.)? If yes, please specify.
    Answer: 

    I believe this is very important question and urge all those trying to win a license to give as much detail as they can here. I feel if a software developer is kindly giving away their product the least any person entering the draw can offer is a bit of feedback to ensure future versions of the product are further developed and easier to use. When I used an old version of the software I found the interface quite cluttered and overwhelming (which detracted from the ease of use of the software and whether or not learning how to use the software was intuitive!) That being said this has been improved in the newer versions. I would also hope importation of bookmarks into chrome has been improved but having not tested the latest pro version I cannot say if this is the case! My advice to Outer Technologies make the interface simpler so the product does not scare off first time users and make the interface customizable so people can hide features being displayed that they don’t use often. Other than this I have no other criticisms yet – I will need to test the product and see…
    4. Do you think $25 (for a single license) is a fair price for Linkman Pro? If no, please specify the price you think is fair.
    Answer: 

    My opinion is very subjective regarding this question. I would say yes $25 is a bargain because the program would be so useful to me. However, if one has simple bookmarking needs then maybe $25 may be a bit much. To appeal to a wider range of users maybe the developer should make the cost $15-$20. Indeed we all did those graphs in calculus at school about finding the point where profit was maximized (i.e. a higher volume at a mid range price sometime made more money than selling less volume at a lower price)…
    In summary, I would really LOVE TO WIN a copy of this program as it would be invaluable to me. Ashraf please put me in the draw and please carefully consider the above responses when deciding whether to award me a license. Cheers for organizing this promotion. Just like your efforts in organizing the promotion for Win Utilities Pro (which I use every day) your efforts on this promotion are much appreciated! Thank you!

    1. No, I use firefox 99.9 percent of the time with the scrapbook addon.    This is not a  bookmark program but allows me to copy webpages or parts onto my machiine and i can highlight or delete secitions. Brilliant how ever if i cant remmeber which folder i put the page in the search takes longer than i require. I  find with the web I am getting information overload and trying to keep track becomes a pain.
    I check dottech.org everyday partly beacause you review programs that i would not of come across or I had dismissed because of using alternate  methods. Thanks to your review i have downloaded and  done a quick test on the lite version. Its very good though need to spend more time on it.

    2. sync bookmarks across browsers and across computers, backup bookmarks fast search
    3. have an option to show small thumbnail of the bookmark without having to open in browser
    or an option to click the bookmark on the left hand side and see the full page on the right
    or click on the folder on the left and get a summary much like an RSS feed reader.
    a combination of the existing bookmarks with an option to save offline and edit like scrapbook
    https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/427
    4. I think $10 would be fair

    cheers

  27. WECH

    1. Have you ever used…..
    ->No.
    2. What will be the main task….

    Have you ever used a bookmarks/favorites manager or synced bookmarks/favorites across multiple browsers or computers? If yes, please name the software/service you have used. I have used Delicious to synonize my bookmarks on the internet
    What will be the main task you will use Linkman Pro for (sync bookmarks across browsers, sync bookmarks across computers, backup bookmarks, etc.) I would use it to sync across the browsers and for my different computers.
    Is there anything Outer Technologies can improve in Linkman Pro (bug fixes, more features, etc.)? If yes, please specify. No it looks like a great program
    Do you think $25 (for a single license) is a fair price for Linkman Pro? If no, please specify the price you think is fair. I think 15.00 would be  fair price

    Have you ever used a bookmarks/favorites manager or synced bookmarks/favorites across multiple browsers or computers?  – YES – http://www.linkshelf.com -  for years!  Fabulous,  FREE ,  I don’t know what I’d do without it!!  Gets me all my favorite sites from any PC that is on line – at a library, client, friend…2)  What will be the main task you will use Linkman Pro for (sync bookmarks across browsers, sync bookmarks across computers, backup bookmarks, etc.)?   Yes, all of above,  of course; and compare to Linkshelf – maybe it does offer more; and, I do worry about what I’d do if Linkshelf ever shut down!

    3.   Is there anything Outer Technologies can improve in Linkman Pro (bug fixes, more features, etc.)? If yes, please specify.  Nothing I see as of yet…
    4.   Do you think $25 (for a single license) is a fair price for Linkman Pro? If no, please specify the price you think is fair.
    Well, IF the $25 is for a single license for use on what ever the licensee happens to be using, and is updatable on an ongoing (as opposed to yearly, for example), yes, I’d say that is fair (IF I am convinced it is better than Linkshelf, which is free!)
    Ashraf – just wanted to thank your for your efforts, on GAOTD, and your own site.
     
    Much appreciated!

    Hi all DotTechies!

    Thanks for a great usefull offer and a good written review.
    I’ll certainly participate in your giveaway of  Linkman Pro.

    Here is my answers as requested:
    1.  Yes I have, AllWay Sync.  Can’t say I’m a pro on this software yet as it has alot of possibilities inside but I’ve been useing it for sync my bookmarks and other databases between different operatingsystems and browsers on the same machine. Mostly I guess this one works better for sync files and usual stuff, perhaps not that developed for working with bookmarks as I would like to see it.

    2. In my case the main task would be to find out a way in how to manage all my bookmarks between one system with XP Pro and another with Windows 7 + one virtual Windows 7.
    Would be terrific to have a chanse to sort everything in good order and sync it all in good shape as there is both duplicates of links and quite many old items too by now:) Forgot to mention the notebook..

    3. From been reading your review and watched the video it looks to me as a really nice software includeing several good options and tools.
    I have’nt used this one before so I’m sorry as my knowledge is unsure.

    4. Might be for those who have some bucks left over to pay with, why not use TrialPay and other collaborations online. Think that could be a great solution too.

    Wish everyone good luck in the draw and big thanks Ashraf!
    Sincerely
    Max

    1  No, I have never used a bookmarks/favorites manager or synced bookmarks/favorites across multiple browsers or computers
    2 I dont’ have any at the moment
    3 I do not know of anything that can be improved
    4 I believe $ 10-15 would be an appropriate price.
     

  32. STF4all

    Thanks Ashraf,  this may be just what I need – I am a donor. With everything you say this program can do, I finally might be able to get things organized.
    I use 3 computers and use Firefox, Opera, and IE and have not been able to sync any of  these correctly.
    1.I have used older versions on Firefox and currently use Xmarks
    2.The main task will be to sync my bookmarks across my various computers with different browsers.
    3. Don’t know what can be improved since I have not used this product before.
    4. The $25 seems a little high for this product but I bet it does so much more than what I am expecting. I wold think the $15-$20 price would be better.
    Thanks again, STF4all

  33. Noam

    Thanks Ashraf &  Outer Technologies. I would like to participate.

    1. No, I haven’t.
    2. Backup, but also sync.
    3. Don’t think so. Maybe I’ll come up with one later.
    4. Yes, it is.

     

  34. Mark in Nashville

    1) No, I have never used a bookmarks/favorites manager or synced bookmarks/favorites across multiple browsers or computers?

    2) I would use Linkman Pro sync bookmarks across computers and backup bookmarks.

    3) I do not know of anything that can be improved.

    4) I believe $15 would be an appropriate price.

  35. Barbara

    My answers:
     
    1.No…I didn’t seem to be able to find a bookmark prog that people thought worked well enough. I’ve never used FFx Weave ..never heard of it (thanks for the tip in case I don’t get a freebie here)
    2. I’d TRY to get organized!  :)
    I’m a bookmark nut..and have diverse interests.
     
    3. I agree ..indexing and searching is very important.
    I haven’t tried the program but would certainly give feedback that I felt would be constructive.
    4. $25 is a little steep for me….I’d think $15 would fit my budget a little better.

  36. gordon55y

    Ashraf,
    Thanks for your reviews.  I always check for your thumbs up sign.
    1.  I have been using FF bookmarks, but found it too limiting, and
    have migrated somewhat to windows folders using html shortcuts.
    2.  I use FF only on my laptop.  I would use Linkman Pro to
    allow me to *FIND* stuff.   I have thousands of bookmarks.
    3.  I see that Linkman Pro does search.  I hope that it allows
    specificity.   Indexing and searching is a big deal for me.
    4.  I would suggest $10 for a single license.
    thanks
    gordon

    #1 Yes. Sort of… We have the Desktop computer as the ‘main’ computer for our little family. My son, daughter, and I have notebook computers. We have a wirelessN router that has a slot for a usb pen drive. We use the MS SyncToy with the contribute function to add all our favorites to the Favorites folder we keep on the pen drive. It sounds a lot more complicated than it is!

    #2 I’m still studying the functions of  Linkman Pro… but syncing the bookmarks on all the computers and backing them up would be the two most useful functions for us.
    #3 I couldn’t answer that without lots of study. Even then I doubt I’d find anything the developer hasn’t already worked on. I remember Outer Tech’s cacheman pro sure helped our win98 box back in the long ago.

    #4 I saw a Lot of free web based alternatives. $25 should cover at least three computers…

    I’m a donor and proud to be a member of dotTech. 

  38. Richard

    1. No, I have never tried a bookmark sync program.
    2. I would use this program for syncing bookmarks between various browsers.
    3. I dont’ have any improvement suggestions for this program.
    4. I think that $25 is a fair price for this useful program.

  39. Harris

    thanks for the opportunity to obtain a license for what appears to be a very nice piece of software.  i have been trying out different browsers as my favourite for years – opera – is giving me problems with sites that have a huge number of elements – i keep having to reload. i suspect user error as when it gets to buffer overloads, maximum connections, etc. i become quite addled.
    as to the questions…
    i have never used any program for syncing bookmarks/favourites. i’ve only used the export/import functions within the browser.
    my primary use would to sync between the various browsers on my computer and especially to try and organize my bookmarks…what a mess!!
    i have not tried to program so cannot make any comments.
    as to pricing, i feel it should be on a sliding scale, depending on the number of computers being used…perhaps $15 for single computer, 
    $25  for 2-5 which would cover most homes with multiple computers and a seperate business licensing agreement.
    thanks…

    I’m an older techie that just doesn’t have the time to try a bunch of different stuff like I used to.  But when something comes along that sounds interesting I give it a go.  One such program was a bookmarks/favorite manager titled “Tidy Start Menu” (TSM).  I downloaded it as part of a free giveaway; believe I found that info on Gizmo’s site, but I don’t honestly remember.  It was Gizmo’s site that I learned about GAOTD, and through GAOTD that I learned about Ashraf.  Any ole’ way I downloaded and installed “TSM”.  I kind of liked the look and feel of “TSM”, but I could never get it configured the way I wanted.  I’m a crotchety old buzzard; I want things the way I want them, not the way someone else thinks they should be, since I already separate my bookmarks into my own categories, and so I eventually uninstalled “TSM”.  I also received “Tidy Favorites” (TF) free with “TSM”.  I still have “TF” installed; it integrates into Firefox just like an extension except that you have to have the “TF” program running on your system.  While I can see that it may be useful for some, I rarely use it.  I also use the Xmarks (formerly foxmarks) extension for Firefox to save my bookmarks.  While Xmarks is supposed to be able to synchronize bookmarks across IE, Firefox, Chrome (don’t and won’t use it), and Safari, I’ve never used it for that purpose; read too many horror stories concerning that.  I have, however, used Xmarks to restore my bookmarks in a new Firefox profile; it works well.  I have also used the Xmarks site info feature and found it very useful when looking for a specific type of program.  And I also use the FEBE and CLEO extensions for Firefox to save my Firefox bookmarks on my system also.  Well, FEBE is used to save bookmarks, extensions and a few other things while CLEO is used to package the FEBE extension so that it can be installed in a new profile without downloading it from the Firefox extension site or the FEBE site every time, but I love that I can find what other users are saying about a specific topic.  I may not always agree, but I get a diverse amount of different sites to looks at especially if I’m looking for a program.  I also, many years ago, used a bookmark sync program called “SyncIt” (SI); its main purpose was to save bookmarks, off ones system, and save them on their servers and then sync those bookmarks across IE and Firefox; they were working on other browsers when they went out of business.  It was originally titled “BookMarkSink” but later changed to “SI”.  “SI” did what it did very well, but one day they had a major server crash and just never went back in business.  I had paid for a lifetime license for “SI” so mildly put I wasn’t too happy.  Oh yeah; almost forgot; there was one other program I used titled Transmute which is supposed to be able to export, import bookmarks between the most popular browsers; it’s quite an extensive list, but I never found it all that reliable, but since it’s possible that was due to user error I may give it another try since the Portable, Standard, and Pro versions are very highly rated on FileForum; the Pro version is rated the highest; go figure.

    Since I use Firefox as my default browser and build my bookmarks in Firefox I typically synchronize (export/import) bookmarks with IE, Maxthon, and Opera using an HTML file generated by Firefox; time consuming.  I also have Safari and SRWare Iron installed, but rarely use them.  I use IE as little as possible and if I need to use IE for something that Firefox won’t handle then I use Maxthon, although I’ve been using Maxthon less and less ever since I installed the “IE Tab” and “IE View Lite” extensions in Firefox, which really work rather well.  While I do typically use Firefox more than any other browser I would welcome a way to keep my bookmarks synchronized across all browsers without having to go through the lengthy, time consuming process of exporting an HTML file from Firefox and importing into each individual browser; IE, Maxthon, and Opera and then dealing with the way each browser wants to handle those bookmarks.  For instance IE and Maxthon both have a bookmark toolbar, but each handles it differently.  So I’d love to see if Linkman can help perhaps save me some time.  Oh, and I’d love it if I were rich enough to be able to synchronize bookmarks across different computers, but alas I only have one.

    I always love it when I’m asked to tell a dev what they can do to improve a program I’ve never used; I don’t have a clue what can be done to improve this program, but I am interested enough in Linkman to download the free version to get a feel for it and then perhaps I will have an opinion in this area.

    Whether Linkman is worth the asking price, or not, is not a question I can definitively answer, at this time, but it seems that all the other programs of its type are similarly priced.  Whether a program is worth the asked price depends on how useful it is to the user.  If it does what it says it will do, does it well, and does it better than other program of its type then it’s worth every penny and more.  As for me I will take a chance and download and install the free version and see what there is to see.

    Y’all have a great day and good luck to everyone.

  41. Grr

    Thanks Ashraf & Linkman for giving an opportunity to get our-self a genuine license.

    I’m currently using 3 different browsers – Mozilla, Opera & IE. All 3 have lots of bookmarks & all different.

    Please find below the answers:

    1. Have you ever used a bookmarks/favorites manager or synced bookmarks/favorites across multiple browsers or computers? If yes, please name the software/service you have used.

    >>I used to use once-it was a cracked version. Don’t remember the name though. But it spoiled everything. After reformat, my bookmarks were not recognized by browser.

    2. What will be the main task you will use Linkman Pro for (sync bookmarks across browsers, sync bookmarks across computers, backup bookmarks, etc.)?

    >>I will use for sync bookmarks across browsers, backup bookmarks, import my old Mozilla bookmarks, delete duplicate bookmarks, remove dead links

    3. Is there anything Outer Technologies can improve in Linkman Pro (bug fixes, more features, etc.)? If yes, please specify.

    >> I cannot say anything for now, as I have not tried it. If i’m lucky to win a license, I will post my detailed review.

    4. Do you think $25 (for a single license) is a fair price for Linkman Pro? If no, please specify the price you think is fair.

    >>I think a fair price would be $20, as taxes would make it to $25. I’m assuming this license fee is for free lifetime updates/upgrades.

    Thanks, Grr

  42. gpc111

    1) I have not used sync software before.
    2) I will use to sync bookmarks between my different browsers.
    3) Not sure as I have not used yet.
    4) The price seems a little steep.
    Thank you Ashraf for the great articles and reviews.

  43. dralokmisra

    1. Till date I have not used any dedicated software for synchronizing my bookmarks other than taking a backup of them and then importing them into another computer.
    2. I would be using this software with my Firefox and internet explorer 8 browsers in between my laptops and my desktop.
    3. I think I am not a suitable person to comment on any bugs or such stuff but certainly I would always want to avoid them!
    4. I can safely say that if the software does what it claims it does then price is justified at 25 USD.

  44. ha14

    I tried TidyFavorites and also linkman both in their free versions.

    Ssupporting comments will make after easier to find urls by keywords, this is helpful when has hundreds links stored in the database. Editing and export feature will help to take a backup and also to share interesting urls by sending these via email.

    I would like to see a pop up  tiny window where you can save links, and images with a single click and return to them later or syncing to the database.

    Well those who can afford 25uSD then its reasonable but other will find it suitable for 20USD

  45. Roland

    1. I have not used a bookmark manager
    2. I would like to use her with Chrome and Firefox.
    3. I can not comment because I have never used the product or even a product like the giveaway.
    4. Seems alright as a cost if she works as stated. I would like it to be $15.00.

  46. Harry

    LinkMan sounds interesting.
    1. I’ve used LinkCollector & LinkStash. The main annoyance is when you lose icons!
    2. I’d be interested to compare LinkMan with these to organize and sync bookmarks across browsers and computers.
    3. I’ve not had a chance to evaluate LinkMan yet.
    4. Like other folk, I have tended to buy discounted software on Bits du Jour , where $25 would seem about right as a regular price and you would pick it up if it came round for about $12.

  47. lylia

    1 / no, I never use a bookmark manager before.
    2/I would like to use with internet explorer 8, synchronize favorites between IE8 and Firefox
    and organized and able to make backups on both at the same time.
    3 / I never used, can not hang you(I can not tell you if there are beugs)
    4 / I found 17 $ is a reasonable price .

  48. Cindy Paliotto

    1. I have never used a bookmarks manager, but I have synced IE bookmarks across computers and browsers using the export feature in IE.  It’s highly annoying that this method rearranges all the bookmarks and then I have to take the time to get them where I want them (most used at the top).
    2. I will use Linkman equally for syncing bookmarks across browsers (I have 3 that I use), sync bookmarks across computers (we have 5 in our house), and to backup bookmarks (I have hundreds and could never replace what I have).  I think the fact that Linkman can check to see if your bookmans are valid is a great feature.
    3.  I don’t know enough about this product to be able to offer a useful answer to this question, and I have never used this type of product before, or even knew they existed, but it would solve a huge problem for me.
    4.  Yes, if this does everything as stated in your review, then I would have to say that $25 is a very good price for this software.   I have paid much more for software that excellently meets my needs.

  49. Erik Tinnerwall

    I’m using Xmarks for the moment. It works well and is the best freeware I have found in my search so far.

    I will mainly use it yo sync bookmarks across browsers, sync bookmarks across computers, backup bookmarks. But there is allot of goodies in the features like duplicate finder and other stuff that I will use allot as well.

    I have not tried to program so I can”t tell.

    I don’t want to pay for a bookmarks sync. Xmarks works well and is free.

  50. Numsekrummen.dk

    1: Yes I tryed BookmarkSync Ver. 2.3.3 and TidyFavorites Ver. 5 Both are ok, but a little messie in my opinion. Need somthing more simple, but yet with thumps to see what the site looks like.

    2: The main idea with the use of Linkman pro, is to control, backup and sorting my (2400 bookmarks aprx) I have.

    3: Hard to say anything about the program, when I havent used it. But I could get the “lite” version and try it out that way.

    4: Reagarding the price, I cant really tell if its cheap or expensive. But Id say around 15 $ or something would be nice.

    Once again, thnx for the wonderfull offer and a great site

    Cheers o/

  51. jumbi

    Yes, enter me for the draw. Here are my answers:
    1) I have used Xmarks but I kept losing bookmarks and many rearrangement of them, so stopped finally. Weave is my current firefox solution.

    2) sync bookmarks across computers

    3) Havent tried Linkman yet to have much experience. I had it once installed through gaotd but lost it after a reformat…

    4) The price is fine, but special offers should be given around the year to forums and software discount sites eg like iconico deals, where the discount is generous and not just 15-20%. By this way, all who want the software and dont want to spend 25$ will have a chance to buy it legally at a lower price. This will be mutually profitable to both developers and customers :-)

    Thanks dottech for this useful offer, I believe anyone who wins will get satisfied by Linkman Pro!

  52. nektar

    - I am a donor -:

    1) Yes I use Firefox Weave which works great to me, but only in Firefox
    2) All 3 mentioned! (sync bookmarks across browsers, sync bookmarks across computers, backup bookmarks)
    3) No, because I havent used it so far.
    4) Considering some free alternatives (even with less capabilities), I suppose around 10-15 would be competitive.

  53. amozai

    Thanks Ashraf for sharing. The following are my answers for the four questions:-
    1. Yes, I used Xmarks and Weave.
    2. I’ll use Linkman to sync bookmarks across computers and to backup bookmarks.
    3. I can not guess since I’ve not used Linkman before, so my answer is NO at the moment.
    4. Yes, if you the importance of Linkman and how it’ll serve your life like me, then $25 is the right way to go. Even other programs which are less important than Linkman are being sold at this price.
    This is a great tool for me.
    Best regards,

  54. Mayank

    1) I Can’t Properly Say That Iuse Any Thing Because I Use OPERA and it Has A Feature Called OPERA UNITE. By Which I Can Sync My Bookmarks And Other Things Across Computers.
    2) The Main Task I Would Use It For Would Be To Sync All My Bookmarks, Backup Them/Sync Bookmarks Across Browsers or Computers etc. Which Will Help Me A Lot To Have All My Fav. Bookmarked Sites Wid Me Without The Trouble Of Remembering It.
    3) Truly Saying, I Havn’t Tested This Software Once So Can’t Tell Anything. But Really Would Like To Have It To Have A Taste Of Your One Of Fav. Softwares.
    4) According To me It’s A Bit High Price For Such A Thing.It Is A Great Software But Should Be Withing A Range Of $15 – $20.

    Hope, I Win This Giveaway.

  55. popfly

    1. I don’t know if it counts, but I used to use Delicious.com service.
    2. I think I would use it mainly for syncing bookmarks between browsers: IE and Opera.
    3. I never used it, but I guess it’s a mature product. Of course there is always room for improvement.
    4. I don’t know pricing of rival software, but I suppose $25 is fair price.

  56. designibelle

    1.
    The only program I use is AM-DeadLink. To synchronize bookmarks across browsers simply use the import/export function. I use Opera and Firefox and have to admit that I need a tool to manage bookmarks.
    2.
    Sync bookmarks across browsers and backup.
    3.
    Compatibility with Opera Link.
    4.
    If this program is as good as Ashraf said, that I think, I was willing to give 10$ – this is max amount I would give for this type of program.

    I think a price below $15 would be practical and also stop abuse of licence. *

  58. j1b645

    1 Have you ever used a bookmarks/favorites manager or synced bookmarks/favorites across multiple browsers or computers? If yes, please name the software/service you have used.

    Only ever used Xmarks

    What will be the main task you will use Linkman Pro for (sync bookmarks across browsers, sync bookmarks across computers, backup bookmarks, etc.)?

    Syncing bookmarks accoros browsers. Especialy as this sofware can sync Opera Browser as Xmarks cannot.

    Is there anything Outer Technologies can improve in Linkman Pro (bug fixes, more features, etc.)? If yes, please specify.

    Difficult to say as I have never used this program or heard of it before.

    Do you think $25 (for a single license) is a fair price for Linkman Pro? If no, please specify the price you think is fair.

    No it seems reasonably priced to me.

  59. Samuelfi13

    Have you ever used a bookmarks/favorites manager or synced bookmarks/favorites across multiple browsers or computers? If yes, please name the software/service you have used.

    Other than the built-in synchronization feature of  Opera, I’ve never used such a thing, but I really like the cross-browser & cross-computer support — I use Chrome, SeaMonkey, Opera, Firefox and I.E. on all my computers and it would be nice to have all of my bookmarks available in each one of my browsers.

    What will be the main task you will use Linkman Pro for (sync bookmarks across browsers, sync bookmarks across computers, backup bookmarks, etc.)?

    As mentioned above, I would sync the bookmarks in all 5 of my browsers on all 5 of my PCs at home. It sounds like the perfect tool for that.

    Is there anything Outer Technologies can improve in Linkman Pro (bug fixes, more features, etc.)? If yes, please specify.

    It sounds pretty comprehensive to me, so I can’t think of anything at the moment.

    Do you think $25 (for a single license) is a fair price for Linkman Pro? If no, please specify the price you think is fair.

    I think $25 is a little high. I would prefer an under $20 price tag with a nice discount for multiple licenses.

  60. Taz

    Have you ever used a bookmarks/favorites manager or synced bookmarks/favorites across multiple browsers or computers? If yes, please name the software/service you have used.
    I used to use Powermarks until I went to a new computer and found that it went end-of-life a few years ago. I still have it on an old laptop, but haven’t used it in a long time. I remember it had incredible features and reviews for it were always great.
    What will be the main task you will use Linkman Pro for (sync bookmarks across browsers, sync bookmarks across computers, backup bookmarks, etc.)?
    I’m not sure of all the features, but would want to do the following:

    sync bookmarks across computers
    backup bookmarks
    organize bookmarks such that I could find what I wanted very quickly
    Search bookmarks for content and keywords or tags
    Macro search capability
    password protection/encryption of all or subset(s) of bookmarks
    Have bookmarks to local folders/files, emails, Evernote entries
    Check bookmark validity
    Configurable printed reports
    Ability to easily carry bookmarks on a USB drive

    Is there anything Outer Technologies can improve in Linkman Pro (bug fixes, more features, etc.)? If yes, please specify.
    Not sure. Don’t know exactly all it does. See previous question for what I would like in a bookmark manager.
    Do you think $25 (for a single license) is a fair price for Linkman Pro? If no, please specify the price you think is fair.
    Single license? As in a single computer? NO. For up to say 3-5 computers $25 might be fair depending how well it works and if it has the features I need. Most users these days have multiple computers . $100 for a 4 computer network for a product such as this would be extreme.
    Ashraf , I am a donor and could really use a good bookmark manager.

  61. vhick

    1. Have you ever used a bookmarks/favorites manager or synced bookmarks/favorites across multiple browsers or computers? If yes, please name the software/service you have used.

    I used Firefox most of the time and managing my bookmarks in firefox. I used Xmark extension and their services to backup, restore, and sync in multiple computers or whatever computer I used.

    2. What will be the main task you will use Linkman Pro for (sync bookmarks across browsers, sync bookmarks across computers, backup bookmarks, etc.)?

    Backup my bookmarks and checking the link if the link is alive is my main task if I used Linkman Pro.

    3. Is there anything Outer Technologies can improve in Linkman Pro (bug fixes, more features, etc.)? If yes, please specify.

    I suggest to have a import function in Linkman Pro came in a text file (.txt). I have mannerism to save a link in notepad like a form of this:

    hxxp://www.link1.com

    hxxp://www.link2.com

    If I put this in notepad, I hope it easily import it and arrange it in Linkman Pro.

    4. Do you think $25 (for a single license) is a fair price for Linkman Pro? If no, please specify the price you think is fair.

    It is great if this price is for 3 PC license. But $14.95 – $19.95 will be fare to a single license.

  62. Dror Hof

    1. No, I have never used this kind of solution.
    2. I would like to do it across computer.
    3. I have never used it, but fixing bugs is always a good thing.
    4. I am not sure regard the price, because if I need to purchase it for every  computer that I want to sync with, it will be too much for me.
    Thank for the opportunity.

    Hi there.  This sounds like a good solution to a problem I’ve started to perceive, as I don’t want to rely on Chrome, to avoid having to retrain my wife from IE, but I like using Chrome because of its speed on my old PC (from the XP era).  Hopefully IE9 will close the gap sufficiently to revert to IE.

    Have you ever used a bookmarks/favorites manager … No, but I have used Allwaysync for general file synchronisation to USB memory.
    What will be the main task you will use Linkman Pro for … sync bookmarks across browsers
    Is there anything Outer Technologies can improve in Linkman Pro (bug fixes, more features, etc.)? As I haven’t used it, it is difficult to tell.  I am concerned that it might want to be a resident utility, whereas I prefer things I run specifically when I want them, and then close.  I am also nervous about continuous changes to browsers, and whether they will be supported.  And finally, I plan a migration to a new PC sometime soon.  Will I be able to use my new license on the new PC?  Re-reading the description, I am wondering whether this is a useful utility that has been bloated with features to attempt to drive it into a higher-priced market.  If this is the intent, the developers should concentrate on corporate needs.
    Do you think $25 (for a single license) is a fair price for Linkman Pro? Again, difficult to answer as I haven’t used anything similar.  However, I think as a rule of thumb, I would consider this software as a ‘utility’, and as such I would not expect to pay more than 10UKP.  25USD must be approaching twice that, a price band that seems to me the category of ‘low end application’.  As this software would not provide me with new functionality – I would use it just for moving bookmarks about - I would find this inappropriate.  BTW I have a philosophy that it is better to get by inefficiently with a few tools than to install many tools with too much functionality to learn (and confuse with each other), and which may clash with each other.  In this vein, context menu integration is usually a turn-off for me.

  64. Adrian

    Have you ever used a bookmarks/favorites manager or synced bookmarks/favorites across multiple browsers or computers? If yes, please name the software/service you have used.
    Yes. I have used XMarks before and also done syncing by exporting and importing. However, both methods are slow and cumbersome.
    What will be the main task you will use Linkman Pro for (sync bookmarks across browsers, sync bookmarks across computers, backup bookmarks, etc.)?

    The main work would be syncing between my portable and home versions of Firefox, and IE7.
    Is there anything Outer Technologies can improve in Linkman Pro (bug fixes, more features, etc.)? If yes, please specify.

    Linkman Pro is already extremely feature rich. An excellent program!
    Do you think $25 (for a single license) is a fair price for Linkman Pro? If no, please specify the price you think is fair.

    $25 is a bit too expensive in my opinion. Around $20 is a good choice, considering that there are so many features.

    Well, I should want a license. I am an author.

  65. AlanR

    1 ) FEBE, Xmarks and Zotero work for me (in Firefox only).
    2) I would use Linkman Pro to sync bookmarks across different browsers/ computers and keep backups.
    3) Compatibility with Safari and a LINUX edition would be good.
    4) Considering my current options are FREE and serve me well, I think $10 (for a single license) might be more reasonable.
     

  66. Stephen Taranto

    Hi and thank you for the chance.
    1. Have you ever used a bookmarks/favorites manager or synced bookmarks/favorites across multiple browsers or computers? If yes, please name the software/service you have used.

    (Answer 1) Yes, Roboform which remembers passwords, but will also Go & Fill your bookmarked site via the URL
    remembered in storage. Also, used Xmarks in Firefox. Both have been used in Home wired / wireless networks. And
    both can be synced across the network.

    2. What will be the main task you will use Linkman Pro for (sync bookmarks across browsers, sync bookmarks across computers, backup bookmarks, etc.)?
    (Answer 2) All 3 uses. On my home network I have certain machines that have software the other machines don’t. In other words I have some very labor, CPU intensive software on my Desktop that when I need it I use my Desktop instead of my Laptop. However I have certain programs, sites etc.. that are common to all network machines and browsers that are also used corresponding with my intensive program use. Linkman Pro would definitely help with this situation for me instead of running from room to room.

    3. Is there anything Outer Technologies can improve in Linkman Pro (bug fixes, more features, etc.)? If yes, please specify.

    (Answer 3) Yes. Since the inclusion of the Intel procccesor in the Macs that allows you to use Windows on a Mac it is not uncommon to see a Mac as part of a network.  This gives the user ability to use the Mac where the Mac is better suited for a certain job along with different browsers etc…, but still have access to Windows. If Linkman Pro could fit that Mac browser (Safari) and bookmarks into the network WOW!!!

    4. Do you think $25 (for a single license) is a fair price for Linkman Pro? If no, please specify the price you think is fair.

    (Answer 4) YES I believe so depending on the number of computers in your network would be covered. A few years ago if I saw it and needed it I bought it. Sometimes to be honest I never really needed it. I loved buying useful software. Nowadays…fixed income…it really has to be a necessity. I appreciate the work you do with this site. The intensive reviews you give…and for us that need it…the great  software you give us. Thank you!…Stephen

    AoA Ashraf,
    Please enter me into this draw. Here are the answers of questions:

    1- Have you ever used a bookmarks/favorites manager or synced bookmarks/favorites across multiple browsers or computers? If yes, please name the software/service you have used.
    Yes, I used following:

    XMarks (for IE and Firefox)- Currently in use
    Mozilla Weave Sync (FireFox only)- Currently in use
    Yahoo Bookmarks (IE and FireFox)
    Google Bookmarks (IE and FireFox)
    Transmute (Sync between multiple browsers)

    I also tested following

    LinkCollector (from GiveAwayoftheDay.com)
    Tidyfavorites (from GiveAwayofTheDay.com)

    2-What will be the main task you will use Linkman Pro for (sync bookmarks across browsers, sync bookmarks across computers, backup bookmarks, etc.)?


    In fact, I may use Linkman Pro for sync bookmarks across multiple browsers and across computers and definitely taking backups. Because I’m working in a WAN environment and have to work across groups/teams and multiple computers.

    3-Is there anything Outer Technologies can improve in Linkman Pro (bug fixes, more features, etc.)? If yes, please specify.

    I never used Linkman Pro before, but I just review the site you mentioned, and from the screen shots, I didn’t see any FaviCons in the Bookmarks in the right panel and if it doesn’t have FaviCons, then it should be added.

    In addition, I like to have some Sticky Notes (or Notes Box) type of feature so that users can add some notes/details for their bookmarks.

    4-Do you think $25 (for a single license) is a fair price for Linkman Pro? If no, please specify the price you think is fair.


    Well, I think, Yes, while keeping in view the features of this tool, especially its integration and synchronizing with multiple browsers.
    Definitely programmer has done some hard work to make it useful and professional, so he/she deserve some reward (After all, I’m a programmer myself ;) ).

     
    Thanks for such a nice offer :) and I hope for best now.
    Best regards
    Farrukh

    Have you ever used a bookmarks/favorites manager or synced bookmarks/favorites across multiple browsers or computers? If yes, please name the software/service you have used.  No

     

    What will be the main task you will use Linkman Pro for (sync bookmarks across browsers, sync bookmarks across computers, backup bookmarks, etc.)?  To link/sync across my IE, Chrome, and Firefox

    Is there anything Outer Technologies can improve in Linkman Pro (bug fixes, more features, etc.)? If yes, please specify. Not have tried it cannot respond.

     

    Do you think $25 (for a single license) is a fair price for Linkman Pro? If no, please specify the price you think is fair. It’s probably a fair price but I think $19.00 would make it very attractive.

    1.  I have not tried any bookmark software yet
    2. I would like to use this program to sync bookmarks between browsers and a couple of computers
    3. since I have not tried any bookmark program yet, including Linkman, I cant yet speak of its abilities.  Looks like it has many features that will be useful
    4. Sounds like 25 $ is a reasonable price for this kind of software to me
     

  70. TeXaCo

    1. I am currently using Xmarks but would love to give linkman pro a try.
    2. I will be using linkman pro to synchronize bookmarks between browsers.
    3. Have not tried the program yet
    4. If the program is able to win me over, I don’t think $25 is too much but doesn’t $19.99 sound way better?

    Thanks for the change to win this Ashraf. You always seem to come up with great software.

    Do you think $25 (for a single license) is a fair price for Linkman Pro? If no, please specify the price you think is fair.

    No.  Probably about $10.

  73. AMM

    1)  I’ve just used the bookmark manager builtin to the browsers.
    2) Syncing across Chrome/Opera/IE on 3 different computers.
    3) Ensure seamless integration between Chrome/Opera/IE.
    4) Yes, I think that $25 is a reasonable price.

  74. acr

    1. I have not used a syncing program for bookmarks in the past. But I have tried foxmarks, although I never kept up with it.
    2. I would use Linkman Pro to sync and manage my bookmarks across multiple browsers. I have thousands of bookmarks and they really need organized.
    3. I don’t know what needs to be improved but I am an active contributor to developers I like and would submit any suggestions, should I have any.
    4. $25 looks like a fair price.

    1. no… have never used this type of software
    2. would like to synch bookmarks between browsers
    3. I have not used the program so am not able to give any comment or suggestions.
    4. $25 seems high to me.  I would hope this type of software would be available for less than $10.  Less expensive = more users :)

  77. Marq

    Have you ever used a bookmarks/favorites manager or synced bookmarks/favorites across multiple browsers or computers? If yes, please name the software/service you have used.

    Yes, Linkman Lite has been my favourite (in fact, the ONLY) bookmarks manager for many years.  :)

    What will be the main task you will use Linkman Pro for (sync bookmarks across browsers, sync bookmarks across computers, backup bookmarks, etc.)?

    Bookmarks synching across mutliple computers.

    Is there anything Outer Technologies can improve in Linkman Pro (bug fixes, more features, etc.)? If yes, please specify.

    Haven’t used Linkman Pro before as I’ve only been using Linkman Lite. Had a look at the features list for Linkman Pro and it seems that it already has all the bells & whistles that I want.

    Do you think $25 (for a single license) is a fair price for Linkman Pro? If no, please specify the price you think is fair.

    For Linkman Pro, I’d honestly say $25 for a single license is more than fair, since I’ve been having  positive experiences with Linkman Lite for many years.

  78. Ron

    Thanks for the offer, Ashraf. I’ve never used a bookmarks manager although I have five machines here. since I rarely accumulate more than than 60-70 bookmarks, I find it easy to include them in my other syncing softwares. Maybe another time, my friend.

    -best

  79. raven

    Yes an earleir version of Linkman
    To sync my 1500+ bookmarks across browsers/computers
    Dont know yet havent tried latest version (waiting to see if i win a key :-) )
    I think $15 – $20 for what it does

    Whether I win or not well done to Ashraf for once again bringing us dottechies something useful and a big thank you to Outer Technologies as well

  80. Bob - The Keyboard Cowboy

    1:  I’ve used Link Commander and PowerMarks and like Link Commander best.  It has some limitations and I’m looking for something new.
    2:  I will use it to sync across different browsers (IE, FireFox, Safari, Bing, etc.) and to sync between my laptop and my computer.
    3:  I didn’t see where it can be used on a flash drive or external drive – I hope this will be a capability.
    4:  While $25 doesn’t seem over priced, it would be more competitive at $19 per seat.
    Regards,
    Bob
     

  81. The Living Spirit

    Have you ever used a bookmarks/favorites manager or synced bookmarks/favorites across multiple browsers or computers?
    I have used XMarks to sync bookmarks across Firefox installs on multiple computers. Though I find it suitable for this purpose, I have found myself dissatisfied with a few of its behaviours.

    What will be the main task you will use Linkman Pro for (sync bookmarks across browsers, sync bookmarks across computers, backup bookmarks, etc.)?
    I think I will use it for backing-up bookmarks, since I did once forget my Xmarks login details and I don’t want to risk losing my bookmarks again. But I may use it for the other listed purposes too if I find it satisfactory compared to Xmarks and other similar software.

    Is there anything Outer Technologies can improve in Linkman Pro (bug fixes, more features, etc.)?
    I have not been aware of this software previously and so cannot comment.

    Do you think $25 (for a single license) is a fair price for Linkman Pro? If no, please specify the price you think is fair.
    Based on quick research I just did on alternatives, it seems the average price, so I can understand it. However, without being familiar with the software, I can’t really judge it is “fair”. Personally, I wouldn’t mind a $5 reduction, since I don’t like paying much for single-purpose software, but that’s just me.

    Final, non-promo-related comments:
    I do love your website, Ashraf, and keep up the good work!

  82. Rene

    1. No I haven’t but is sounds usefull.
    2. To sync backup and have comments with my bookmarks.
    3. I don’t think so. But haven’t used it before. It sounds good.
    4. Yes, about right.

    I never knew such software existed. Shows you how web savvy I am…

    What will be the main task you will use Linkman Pro for (sync bookmarks across browsers, sync bookmarks across computers, backup bookmarks, etc.)?

    Syncing bookmarks across windows installs on mostly one computer (technically not Windows, except 1 copy of Windows 7 at work)

    Is there anything Outer Technologies can improve in Linkman Pro (bug fixes, more features, etc.)?

    Never used it. (See 1.)

    Do you think $25 (for a single license) is a fair price for Linkman Pro? If no, please specify the price you think is fair.

    I only use free software. As in a certain controversial drink. Last software I bought was a game for Windows 95. So I think it’s too much.

    1.) No, I have not used one in the past, but I have been actively searching the past couple weeks for one that would have all the features I want without being a drain on my computer or my wallet.
    2.) I stay faithful to one browser, so I would use Linkman Pro to synchronize bookmarks between different computers.
    3.) Since I have not yet tried the program, I couldn’t fairly judge what could be improved.
    4.) Yes, I think $25 is a fair price, but it is at the upper limit of what I would be willing to pay.

    -I have a lot of computers, i would find all my bookmarks on them at the same time. So, i think the main tasks i will use Linkman Pro for are, syncing and makings backups.

    4. Do you think $25 (for a single license) is a fair price for Linkman Pro?
    If no, please specify the price you think is fair.
     
    -Hum, perhaps a bit unfair. Around 10 and 15$ would be better.

  86. Angela

    1. Have you ever used a bookmarks/favorites manager or synced bookmarks/favorites across multiple browsers or computers? If yes, please name the software/service you have used.

    Yes. The most recent one I have used is Advanced URL Catalogue but it was only good for 30 days and I wasn’t inclined to purchase it because it didn’t warrent me buying it since other freeware seemed to accomplish what I was looking for.

    2. What will be the main task you will use Linkman Pro for (sync bookmarks across browsers, sync bookmarks across computers, backup bookmarks, etc.)?
    I will use it to organize the existing bookmarks (favorites) I have, hopefully update outdated or no longer existant links, eliminate duplicate links, and of course have a better way of categorize the ones I already have.
    3. Is there anything Outer Technologies can improve in Linkman Pro (bug fixes, more features, etc.)? If yes, please specify.
    I think one think Outer Technologies might want to consider is making it more compatible for Safari.

    4. Do you think $25 (for a single license) is a fair price for Linkman Pro? If no, please specify the price you think is fair.
    I think the price is fair considering what it does but I think the price should include future upgrades.

  87. JohnD

    Hi Ashraf,
    I also think this software looks good and am going to try the lite version and maybe win a copy of the pro version.  I am a donor.
    1.  I have used the built in synchronizers for bookmarks, but no professional version such as this.
    2.  I would use the product to clean up my bookmarks, eliminating duplicates and creating a solid master version to share across browsers and computers.
    3.  No opinion on improvements as I have not used the product yet.
    4.  $25 is high for one computer.  Perhaps for a 3 pc version, or a least for your desktop and laptop.  I personally like the WinPatrol pricing strategy, pay for it once and use it on all of Your computers, as long as it is not a business.
     
     

  88. Saralou

    •Have you ever used a bookmarks/favorites manager or synced bookmarks/favorites across multiple browsers or computers? If yes, please name the software/service you have used.

    Mostly I cut and paste the favorites/bookmark folder if I don’t use FEBE .  Weavebrowser Sync is a FF extension I apparently downloaded but have never used it.   I used to do something with g-mail that let me sync my Bookmarks but since I don’t remember how or what I clearly haven’t bothered in a while.  I do back up and move back ups around.  Sometimes use Toucan to sync stuff.

    •What will be the main task you will use Linkman Pro for (sync bookmarks across browsers, sync bookmarks across computers, backup bookmarks, etc.)?

    One stop everything I’ve forgotten.  Likely I’ll use it to keep my bookmarks at home and at work synced.  If I like the backup on it, I’ll do that too.  Faintly recall downloading a FF extension to locate dead links but it’s long gone.  That function would be nice as part of a package so regular link clean-up could happen.

    •Is there anything Outer Technologies can improve in Linkman Pro (bug fixes, more features, etc.)? If yes, please specify.

    Have no idea.  Not ever used it.  Looks like great stuff which is why I’d like a copy to try out.  May have to give Linkman Lite a look.

    •Do you think $25 (for a single license) is a fair price for Linkman Pro? If no, please specify the price you think is fair.

    Probably.  I don’t know what development, distribution and maintenance costs are or the developer’s source(s) of income. As for positioning it for max purchase, people have to need or want it to buy it.  I’ve been limping along, making do with other stuff.  Should I find I actually want/need it once I use it, then $25 is affordable.

  89. Terry

    Hi,
    I think the software sounds like a handy tool.
    1. No,  I have never used a bookmarks/favorites manager and I’d like to give it a go – I hate not having access to my usual bookmarks when, for emple, I use my partner’s PC.
    2. My main purpose for using Linkman Pro to sync my bookmarks across browsers and between different PCs on the same subnet.
    3.I havn’t used Linkman Pro so I’m not familiar with whether there are problems that need fixing.
    4. $25 for a single license for this software sounds a bit too expensive to me, perhaps for a multiuse licence and/or $10 per license…

  90. Leo

    I like the idea of a professional bookmark manager. So to take advantage of this opportunity I will answer your questions:
    Yes I have used a bookmarks manager: Transmute.
    I want to see what’s different in this one than Transmute, because Transmute is not exactly what I need. I do use two different browsers and would really like to have all my bookmarks in one place, managed better than the current software, if possible.
    I think $10 may be a better and more attractive price as this is just a bookmarks manager basically.
    I have not tried Linkman before, so cannot suggest what they should do to improve themselves.

  91. Jeffinprov

    While I am  donor, I am also a complete and total mess when it comes to bookmark management.   We’re talking pathetic here.    I have not used a bookmark manager to date, largely because I couldn’t figure out the best option for sorting through critical bookmarks and all the crap I get entranced with via Stumble Upon.  I am less interested in synching between computers than I am in synching across browsers, since I tend to bounce around between Firefox, Chrome, and here and there some Opera and Safari.
    Re:  bug fixes and improvements, I am always too happy to express my opinion about every thing, solicited or otherwise.
    With regard to pricing,  I am usually happier when software that is not critical, but that offers benefits that are a little more complicated than would be common in freeware falls in closer to $19.95 than $25, but that’s just because I’m poor and cheap.
    In any event,  I appreciate at least having the chance to be considered for a free license, and it is always a pleasure to feel a part of the dotTech community.

    2. I would use Linkman Pro to sync my bookmarks across browsers IE & Google
    3.I have not used it.

    Thank you for the offer:

    1. Have you ever used a bookmarks/favorites manager or synced bookmarks/favorites across multiple browsers or computers? If yes, please name the software/service you have used.

    I have used the bookmarking service ‘Delicious’

    2. What will be the main task you will use Linkman Pro for (sync bookmarks across browsers, sync bookmarks across computers, backup bookmarks, etc.)?

    I will use it for syncing bookmarks across browsers, checking and eliminating/updating dead links, backup bookmarks, creating a database of bookmarks and as a reference library.

    3.  Is there anything Outer Technologies can improve in Linkman Pro (bug fixes, more features, etc.)? If yes, please specify.

    Make it compatible with Safari (as I use that browser too!).
    Ability to import bookmarks from Delicious, Google bookmarks (probably can already do this).
    Could make the interface a bit more user friendly/attractive

    4. Do you think $25 (for a single license) is a fair price for Linkman Pro?
    If no, please specify the price you think is fair.

    I think $20 is a more fair/ more attractive price for consumers

  94. Chris

    Well, this is such an appealing program! I use four different computers (two for work and two for the home) and three different browsers on each (Opera, Firefox and Chrome) and this program would be so helpful.

    X-marks, Transmute
    What will be the main task you will use Linkman Pro for (sync bookmarks across browsers, sync bookmarks across computers, backup bookmarks, etc.)?
    All of the above, basically.
    Is there anything Outer Technologies can improve in Linkman Pro (bug fixes, more features, etc.)? If yes, please specify.
    As I haven’t used it yet, I really can’t say anything about bug fixes. If I am lucky enough to win, I will of course send in recommendations if I come across bugs/needed features to improve the program.
    Do you think $25 (for a single license) is a fair price for Linkman Pro? If no, please specify the price you think is fair.
    If it’s a single license that can be used by one person on all of her computers, then it does sound reasonable to me.

    I anm using XMarks to sync my bookmaks and favorites, but I would like a desktop programs so I can work with them.

    I would be using Linkman Pro to backup and sync between computers.

    I hav eused the Lite version, but it had its limitations.  I liked the program and without the Lite’s limitations it would be a great program.

    $25.00 is not a bad price for this program, but FREE is always best.

    I use Outer Technologies Cacheman Pro and love it.

    Thenk you

    1. No I have never used a bookmarks/favorites manager or synced bookmarks/favorites across multiple browsers or computers.

    2. I would use Linkman Pro to sync my bookmarks across browsers primarily but would also consider doing it across computer at a later date.

    3.I have never used it but fixing bugs is always a good thing.

    4. It would depend how you define a single license. If the single license is for one computer then I most likely would not purchase it for $25.  On the other hand if a single license covered all my computers than I would consider if a very fair price and would consider purchasing  it .

    x-marks and zotero

    What will be the main task you will use Linkman Pro for (sync bookmarks across browsers, sync bookmarks across computers, backup bookmarks, etc.)?

    I think this would be a richer feature set than x-marks, and I’d rather save zotero for my research work.

    Is there anything Outer Technologies can improve in Linkman Pro (bug fixes, more features, etc.)? If yes, please specify

    Take a look at Zotero.  Collecting bookmarks as formal citations that can be used directly as footnotes/endnotes is an AWESOME feature!

    Do you think $25 (for a single license) is a fair price for Linkman Pro? If no, please specify the price you think is fair.

    Not really sure.  I am looking at the feature set, and right now I don’t have a rich enough bookmark environment that I’d pay for it.  But if I had better organizing tools (sort,…) I probably *would* use one more and that would likely make it worthwhile.
    I imagine this is one of those things that I’ll discover over time.
