Con Paid service
Costs $11/year, which may be costly to some over free solutions. With free services such as Pocket, Raindrop, XMarks, iCrumbz, Delicious, and Papaly - there is no reason as to why one would want to pay for this service. Especially considering it is inferior to some of the services mentioned previously. With that being said - the service itself is not poor - it just isn't easy to justify paying for a service you can find elsewhere for free.
