Raindrop.io is a cross platform bookmarking app. In this video I discuss the benefits of using Raindrop.io as a bookmarking app, especially for those who use browsers on different platforms, such as Chrome, Safari, or on a Windows machine in your day job and then working on a Mac when you get home.
