My experiences with Memex so far and a question
I use Memex to get information from the daily articles I read on the Internet. I once tried this with ‘Pocket’ and ‘Instaper’. This did not work for me. Memex’s possibilities are more extensive and the user interface is pleasant. I am now also starting to use Memex for annotating my pdf files. Originally I used Polar for this. This app is very suitable for working with the pdf-format, an additional advantage is that Polar also enables backlinks. Unfortunately, this is not possible in Memex. I have my pdf documents stored in my Pcloud and use the pcloud web link of my documents to open them in the Memex App (browser). This works very well. I can close my Polar subscription.
Working with the spaces takes some getting used to. I am used to working with folders and tags. It requires a new approach in my thinking.
The annotations can be copied very easily so that I can enter them in Obsidian.
These experiences have led me to take out a pre-order subscription.
However, I still have an important question. Suppose I were to delete all the apps installed in my browsers and mobile phone … would all my data be lost? Is it necessary to install a backup? I am a linux user and can’t make sense of the zip file that has to be downloaded.
