SUMMARY: Access your del.icio.us bookmarks directly from this app

Check out appoLearning.com, because your kids deserve the very best educational apps!

While there are other apps that integrate directly with your del.icio.us accounts, Bookmarks is an app that does only that. The functionality of Bookmarks starts and stops with it's access to your del.icio.us account. This app is simple and straight to the point, providing you with the ability to access your del.icio.us bookmarks very easily and when you need them.

Once you log in, the only page you'll see is the tags screen. This lists out all the tags that you've used for different bookmarks and allows you to browse through what bookmarks are available under each tag. When you select a tag, you'll notice that there are yet again no more options available for you to take advantage of. That means that what you can read of the bookmarks title is about all you get to judge if you want to visit it.

When you click on that bookmark, the app exits and loads up the Safari browser with that URL. You don't get to read the description, see the full title of the bookmark, or anything else. What's worse is you can't even add additional bookmarks to del.icio.us through this app either.

Bookmarks is very similar to Here I Am in a few ways. First off, it's very basic and feels like it would fit better as part of another app. Second, you can't really do that much with it on it's own. So instead of downloading Bookmarks, we highly recommend you try an app like Shozu or PageOnce that will offer you the same functionality while including additional services.
