Diigo Feature Reviews

7 reviewers had the following to say about Diigo's features:

Rick Powell

Powerful bookmarking and research, tool, but maybe too powerful for its own good.

2017-09-15

Pros

I'd been using diigo consistently for several years, primarily for bookmarking and list-making, until Pocket came along with its one-click-to-save feature. I set up an IFTTT recipe, however, to continue backing up bookmarks to diigo as well, and I've gone back to it every once in a while to re-evaluate its use-value for me.

Cons

Most of diigo's research tools are of little value to me as I would rather have one workspace with everything related to one topic easily accessible and organized, and collaboration-ready.

It's quite handy and useful

2018-09-25

As said before it is really handy. Nice to have an article view.

Pros

It's helpful to organize your "web-based" knowledge collection. Mobile as well.

Cons

The design is not really friendly and modern and the outliner functionality as well as the organization of the different topics could be improved, for exapmle through a folder structure.

Diigo is very nice foe collecting articles from the web. Pdf functionality is limited though.

2017-11-23

Safing a lot of time organizing and collecting articles in the web and retrieving information. Nicly reading on my Smartphone.

Pros

A safe and solid working mobile app.

Cons

The use of pdfs is limited, especially on mobile phones, since you can not store the pdfs offline in the Diigo app.

Long-time user and fan, but the jury is out on current update

2016-12-13

I have used Diigo for several years and am very pleased with the service bookmarking/tagging is great, but highlighting on the web is the killer feature. The new update is certainly more modern looking, and I very much appreciate the archiving feature I may end up paying for it but having it default to that rather than sending you to the real link is a little bit of a pain.

Amazing software for online research

2018-09-28

It was fantastic. Had no issues using it. It was incredibly simple to set up and get started with.

Pros

Prior to this I was using about 3 different tools to keep track of the research material I was reading, temporarily bookmarking links and sharing the content.

Cons

The premium versions are a little pricey. I would like to see them be more affordable.

Great program for research that allows you to save highlighted text from websites all to one place.

2017-10-23

The ability to easily highlight important text on multiple website and bookmark it all into one place.

Pros

This bookmarking software was first introduced to me while working on a research project for a class I was taking. It made it extremely convenient to save snip-its of information from various websites all in one place. In the past I would either bookmark the whole website or copy and paste the info I need to notepad. There is also the ability to share the bookmark with other people which worked out great when I had to do a project with several classmates.

Cons

If it is a tool that is used very often, it is worth spending.

Collects Web Artciles for Blog Use for a Great Value

2018-04-16

Easy research and outline building

Pros

I like how simple this software is to use for blogging. The best part of this is how it collects and highlights articles for you to condense into your own work. You can turn this into an outline very easily. This makes writing research articles, like what I do for some of my travel blog clients and my clients who want buyer guides written, a breeze.

Cons

I dislike the "list" format. I wish I could just write like in a notebook, which is how I write best. This restricts creativity. I also have some issues with Internet connectivity and can't work offline.
