Elation - This is the most elated update for an app I’ve had in a very long time. Why is it blissful? It isn’t about improving stability (BUT IT DOES) It’s about really completing and loving this app. The developer really knocked this app out of the ballpark the first time - It’s a great pinboard viewer. But gosh, it got even better. That drag and drop, that’s magical. For Pinboard users, this app is NECESSARY. It’s essential. It’s beautiful and well done. Spillo + Pushpin (iOS) are some of the greatest apps I have had the joy to use and help me accomplish things. I know this sounds hyperbolic, but it really is good for me. You’ll never need to buy another pinboard app for the Mac I imagine. Man this is great.
CPU Hog - Had to stop using it after I found it using over 90% of my CPU in the background. No app should do this...

Almost Perfect - I am so close to giving this app a 5-star review. Everything about it is perfect with one exception: the Safari extension does not work unless the app is open. It’s a minor annoyance, but it should be a relatively easy fix. In fact, when you try to pin a link using the *share* extension in Safari, it works fine. But the more-convenient button in the toolbar requires the app to be open to save a link. The moment they fix, I’ll come back here and give the update a 5-star review!
