13 of our most interesting and funny reviews

When we first started our service in 2012 we couldn’t have imagined so many happy users today. You don’t have to take our word for it: with over 2,600 likes on Facebook, you can see for yourself. If they don’t convince you to try start.me for yourself, maybe these reviews will.

start.me was called Yourls in 2012; we have no reviews from those days
Do you remember what start.me looked like back in 2012? It was still named Yourls, actually…

It’s great to get organized

We think it is great to get organized and we are committed to make you feel organized as well. We couldn’t put it better than this user.

Some users get hooked on start.me and promise never to let go. We think he’s ready for our lifetime membership!

I have been using start.me for a month now, and I love it! It puts everything I need all in one place so I save time and frustration by using it. I won’t be using anything else… ever!
Michael Mysteriez

As easy as an organized life may seem to be, sometimes you need help. We’re there for you.

Everything you need on your homepage. Great way to store bookmarks you use a lot. […] When I was having problems with it loading, the support staff was right on it and fixed it right away. Use it every day for the past few years.
Brad Matson

Too many bookmarks will kill you, or at least that's what a review we read seems to suggest
“Before start.me my bookmarks were a total disaster…”

Saving time and avoiding a total disaster; This is what we aim for.

My start.me homepage has been a Huge time saver and organizer. The page design is very user-friendly… well organized, loads fast, and exceeded my expectations. I downloaded it a few months ago and could not even imagine my pc experience without it. Before start.me my bookmarks were a total disaster… so bad I avoided even going into them, but not anymore!
In addition, the customer service is attentive and prompt.

Great for Techies

There was a time when everybody on the Internet had to be tech-savvy. Now you just click away.

Love this tool. I wrote my own bookmark/search portal nearly 20 years ago using Perl. I finally got tired of its simplicity and decided I was going to either find something more current or write something new. I found start.me in my searches and am really glad I did. It has everything I wanted in a portal and more. Glad they took the time to write (and maintain) this really useful utility so I don’t have to.

It’s great to see how Users see the difference between our simple bookmark solution and the more advanced stuff. Even for programmers, there’s still a lot to discover!

I use start.me as my new tab page every single day. It has been such a positive asset to my toolset, that it is basically my dashboard for the Internet. I can easily keep track of all of my links and bookmarks in one simple location and can also take notes and use their smarter app features for other information. I loved their service so much I paid for the lifetime upgrade to the premium version. I haven’t questioned this decision once and it has easily paid for itself with how accessible and easy the platform is to use.

Better than Google

Don’t think we hate Google: it’s probably the best thing that happened to the Internet since Altavista.

Since Google ended iGoogle I have tried various alternatives without any lasting success. Some did not have the facilities I wanted, others seemed to have what I was looking for but, quite simply, did not work efficiently. Start.me has what I want and, so far (3 weeks) everything works. Excellent product.

A iGoogle dashboard, as mentioned in a review
“Since Google ended iGoogle I have tried various alternatives […] start.me has what I want”
Sometimes we read a review and we just think: why is there so much suffering in the world. Google Sheets. Hyperlinks. Ouch!

I have been frustrated for a long time with trying to find a way to organize and save internet links. I have tried a number of browser add-ons but they were slow and unreliable. The best solution for me was to create a Google sheet and in each cell attached a hyperlink to the web page and to a picture for an icon. Then I stumbled on to start.me; it is like day and night. It is so easy to create tabs, categories, and links. I use some of the widgets with start.me, such as weather and to do. I also like it that you can share your page with another person. I like it that you can set it once and use it in other browsers and other computers or tablets. One thing on my wishlist for start.me is more icons selection, but at least I can upload my own icons so it is not too bad.

This user makes a bold statement we won’t deny. We won’t approve either. But we like it.

Much better than Chrome.
