BOOKMARKED [TOUCHPAD] – REVIEW (68%)

30 May

bookMarked is a internet browsing tool released by Webdata Design Group.

“bookMarked – Manage your favorite webpages with ease! – Home Page – Categorized bookmarks – Web view Tabs This app was designed for those who like to have quick and easy access to their favorite websites. Open up to 4 web views without leaving the app!”

When you open the app it is preloaded with a selection of categories each populated with big name sites in their own categories, such as social, sport and news.

You can add new book marks by visiting a website and the clicking the paperclip. This will allow you to add the bookmark and the category that it will belong to (or add a new one)

You can also star a website, setting the website as your home page etc time the application loads.

bookMarked uses a two column view, with the catagories and links on the left hand side, and then the browser window in the large window to the right. You can change this into a full page display for the browser window.

There is a useful help section and full instructions for the application

I feel this application is very much for people who are new to the web, who want to easily bookmark page and see their favorite sites.

The user interface is good. The application is easy to use and allows you to quickly navigate to the next website you wish to look at.

My biggest issue with the application is the time that some pages take to load, I have a massively fast internet speed and I am use to pages loading within one or two seconds maximum, so when I am waiting 15 to 20 seconds for a simple page to load it is very noticable. It is hard to tell which the loading can be so slow, as sometimes the pages do load at almost normal speeds (especially when cached).

On the upside:

  • Good User Interface.
  • Easy to add a new bookmark.

On the downside:

  • Very slow to load pages at times.
  • You have to remember what is on each of the tabs.
  • Annoying start up sound.

Overall, this is an interesting application, that in the first days of the Touchpad would have had a place. It does have a good feature list of functions, it just needed to go them a little better. For tab browsing I use Advance Browser and for book marking I use Touch Surf. If bookMarked was quicker and tweaked I may use it but not as it stands.
