Description

Diigo comes in two varieties:

  1. The Diigo website is a highlighter, collector and storage location of bookmarks and sites to come back to later from any location.
  2. The Diigo app is your library of stored sites.

Diigo differs from Pocket in that it is a bookmarking site for URL’s – you have to add the URL in Diigo – whereas with Pocket the link is added automatically through twitter
