It's a bookmarking app along the lines of Delicious or Pinboard but without social sharing, with a stripped-down Reader view of all articles and with a nice simple aesthetic. Lallo says a number of new features are in the works and if you like simple tools developers build for solving everyday problems, Kippt could be a good service to try out and keep an eye on.
In a thread on Hacker News, the Kippt team says it's working on public bookmarking, a Delicious Importer, an API, a mobile version (cool) and an inline RSS reader. So far there are feeds for your bookmarks and a search function. It's a cool little first iteration.
Kippt has been in the works since at least the beginning of the year and is just now being relaunched. The intent is to make it easy to save links quickly so that they can be read across multiple devices.
"Having a library and finding new things is important to me," Saarinen says. "This is our first attempt on the problem, focusing on bookmarking." Saarinen is a co-founder of ArcticStartup, among other things.
What's in the future for Kippt? "Social. Sharing bookmarks & lists," Saarinen says.
