Pinboard for Android.  Archive with the power of a robot.

Pinboard, a site profiled on TNW in March, is a service described as, “a bookmarking website for people who want to reliably keep track of the things they find online. The focus of the site is less on socializing, and more on maintaining a personal archive of useful information.”

What does that mean to you, the user?  “Each time you save a bookmark, or put something on your to read list, Pinboard will crawl the URL and store a permanent copy of the page to your account.”

To get started on Pinboard, users can pay a one-time signup fee, currently $6.47,  which goes up by a small amount with each new signup. The fee is based on the formula (number of users * $0.001), so the earlier you join, the less you pay.

In addition, users can also choose to subscribe to an archival service, $25, which keeps a private copy of every page bookmarked.  If you’ve already paid the one-time signup fee for Pinboard, your signup fee will be deducted from this price.

A truly neat service which now has an Android app to go with its already grand product.

Save to Pinboard ($.99), launched today, allows you to save links from other apps on your Android device to your Pinboard.in account.  Save to Pinboard also supports the use of Tags, Read Later, and Private Links.

All you, the Android Save to Pinboard User, must do is select “Save to Pinboard” from an app’s “Share to” menu item and that’s it.

Pretty straight forward, and quite useful.  You can get Save to Pinboard by scanning the code below.  Are you a Pinboard user?  What are your likes/dislikes?
