What is the history and popularity of the app?

Google Bookmarks is a part of one of the internet’s most powerful companies, Google. The original search engine began as a project in the late 1990s. Google was officially founded in September of 1998. Today, the company (and its client base) has grown to enormous proportions. Google employs approximately 20,000 individuals, including President Larry Page, CEO Eric Schmidt, Chief Network Engineer Walter M. Delgado, Chief Economist Hal Varian, CFO Patrick Pichette, CIO Benjamin Fried, Vice President Vinton Cerf and Senior Vice President David Drummond.

What are the differences to other apps?

Google Bookmarks provides users with the ability to do just about everything they could possibly want to do with a bookmark. Users can create and manage a list of their favorite bookmarks, sort their bookmarks into lists and share their lists with others. Bookmarks are stored on Google so the user never has to worry about losing their favorite URLs if something happens to their computer.

How does the web app look and feel to use?

Google Bookmarks retains the familiar style and design of all other Google applications. Users have come to identify the white background and colorful Google logo very easily. Bookmarks uses these same elements with a navigational side menu to the left and the user’s current bookmarks featured at the center of the page.

How does the registration process work?

Users who wish to sign up for Google Bookmarks must create a Google account. This can be done by clicking the blue “Create an account now” link found just below the log in area. Google asks for the user’s current email address, desired password, location, date of birth and a word verification to prove that the user is human. A short note at the bottom of the form advises the user that by submitting their information they are automatically agreeing to the Google terms of service and privacy policy.

What does it cost to use the application?

Google Bookmarks is a simple but effective service that many users can appreciate. That being said, there are numerous free alternatives out there so charging a fee would not be wise for this type of application. Just like many other Google products, Bookmarks is available for free to anyone with a Google account. The user can log in and access or edit their bookmark lists as much as they like without paying for access.

Who would you recommend the application to?

Google Bookmarks is a helpful tool for any internet user who wants to find a better way to manage their bookmarks. The application provides many simple, user friendly functions. Users can save bookmark lists, share bookmarks and post their bookmark lists as public or private. Google offers a convenient option that lets users store their bookmarks online.
