Collect interesting links simply and conveniently via a browser extension or app (coming soon), or enter bookmarks directly in Cling. Combine your links with other content to ensure the faithful delivery of meaning and context. Work with your links – don’t simply manage them. Cling is your bookmarking service that you use online and on all your devices.
Cling uses link cards ➊ for bookmarks. To save a link, simply enter a name for it and the website address. The link is saved when you close the link card window by clicking the small cross at the top left. Cling automatically adds a small logo to ensure your links are displayed more clearly on your boards. The saved links can be opened with a simple click.
Notes, photos and tasks can be appended to your bookmarks to give them additional context.

There is also a much easier way to collect links: with the browser extensions for Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox. After downloading, the Cling button will appear beside your browser’s address bar ➋.
If you wish to save a website, click on the button in the toolbar of your browser and chose the board on which the URL is to be saved to. All links that you save with the extension will be deposited in the incoming column ➌ of the respective board. The incoming column can be opened by clicking on the letter-tray symbol at the top-right of the board. A little number will also show how many elements are currently in the incoming column of a board.
Now simply move the cards in the incoming column to exactly the right spot on your board. This is how you organize and manage all your bookmarks to match your wishes precisely.
Tip #1: Open boards quickly via the bookmark button by clicking on the icon with the arrow. Instead of saving the website on the incoming column of a board, the board is opened in a new tab of your browser.
Tip #2: As with all other cards, you can add comments to links, attach cards together, mark them as being especially important, archive them or simply delete them. Each of these functions can be accessed via the small menu at the top-right edge of every card. Cling provides you with much more than other bookmark managers. You can add context as you please to each of your bookmarks.
