Very Frustrated - Just spent many hours organizing my bookmarks that I migrated over from Safari into this tool. Everything looked good and I did a manual Backup. I then exited the program and went to Safari and used the Safari Extension to add a bookmark. When Pins opened the old settings were there and none of the changes that I spent hours making were there. So I deleted the data and did a restore from the backup and got the same mess back. VERY FRUSTRATING. How the heck do I know that the backup made a backup of my changes? I really want to use this tool, but given this my confidence is very low on the quality of it working correctly. I find many similar comments on its bugginess on the App store. To add insult to injury, when I go to the site to report the problem I get an error "We're sorry, but something went wrong. We've been notified about this issue and we'll take a look at it shortly.” So even their own reporting tool for errors doesn’t work. This is very sad, the program appears to have great poential, but if you can’t rely on their backup to backup what you did, what a bad situation. I’d advise people not to buy this application!
