Thank you for introducing mymind, an elegant tool for saving images, links, and online articles into a private visual collection. Its AI-enhanced classification, simplicity, and distraction-free interface make it perfect for organising and exploring your favourite finds. This episode also highlights creative usage ideas, limitations, and alternatives.

Looks interesting, but I won't use a service that requires a third-party login. It's a security risk - if their security measures aren't up to snuff, someone can hack your Google or Apple account via their systems as they enjoy a trusted relationship with that account. It might even sidestep MFA measures, especially if they gain access to your email.

I'd say I'm being paranoid, but this has happened to me before. I'd rather sign up with a separate account using my email or phone number.

Thanks for sharing that perspective, James. I'll plan to put a question about that to the mymind team if/when I next have an opportunity.

Thank you, Jeremy. Using only third-party logins probably saves them on money, skills, and security. But it's riskier for the user.

Love the stuff you report on - especially how to work off-line.

Wow, I love mymind! It works great, and for me, as an artist who is always working on several things at once as well as personal stuff, the ability to add notes and tags is great! Thank you!

I would prefer Cryptee or Hoarder as open source, self-hosted alternatives to the closed-source paid mymind service.

Thanks, Jay, for mentioning these open source resources: https://crypt.ee/ and https://hoarder.app/ for anyone else who is interested in exploring them. Appreciate you sharing those options!

Great collection again, thanks! "Jan" is new to me, just downloaded, hope to love it :) And I can highly recommend Eagle as the ultimate desktop media/file organizer. It's been a godsend, and is allowing me to curate many tens of thousands of items that would otherwise be effectively impossible. And the product - selling one-time price of $30, highly respect this pricing.

There is no 1 click saving with Android though, correct? It's a desktop app (in 2024)!?
