Ooo, this is great! I tried it and i like it! Please, can you add ability write comment/description for link


I considered the feature you suggested in design phase, I decided not to add it because this makes the workflow too complicated.


If you have pinboard.in account, you can modify comment/description of bookmark in pinboard.in web page and be able to re-download it.
