Archive Web Pages, Images, Videos & Notes With Keep Everything for Mac & iOS

Bakari Chavanu 30-05-2014

Keep Everything is an archive solution for Mac and iOS for saving webpages, images, videos and notes in a neat digital file drawer that syncs via Dropbox.


It’s a bit like the online drag and drop service Dragdis Drag, Drop, And Save Anything On The Web Easily With Dragdis When it comes to bookmarking and saving content on the Web, there's no shortage of solutions. But a new service aptly called Dragdis makes the process a simple drag and drop process.

The app is a free download on both platforms (Mac and iOS), both of which allows for archiving up to a 100 items.

A premium in-app upgrade ($9.99 and $4.99 respetively) enables unlimited data storage.

How It Works

On both the Mac and iOS version of Keep Everything, you can import webpages, tweets, images, and videos (including YouTube, Vimeo, Ted, and Dailymotion), and manage that data into folders. You can also create markdown-formatted text notes Learning Markdown: Write For The Web, Faster Markdown is the best way to write in plain text but still create complex documents. Unlike HTML or LaTex, for example, Markdown is simple to learn. Read More  as well.

Keep Everything content

In the Mac version, content can be dragged and dropped into the application, or you can use the + button to import data. If you have a URL copied to your system clipboard, Keep Everything can grab and import the article from it. You can also drag and save URLs links from inside archived pages.

Keep Everything archives the original URL and also creates a clean article view, stripped of extraneous data. If new content is added to an archived webpage, the app allows you to update it. Unfortunately, Keep Everything doesn’t yet support PDF or external text files.

Selected webpages and other content can be shared via email, formatted and converted as a PDF, and or as a Keep Everything file.

Individual pieces of data can be managed in folder categories, but hopefully in future iterations Keep Everything will include tag support and smart folder collections that sorts data based on filter rules. It’s a hassle to manually drag files to folders if you rely on automation a lot. It would also be nice if folder content could be sorted by recently added, oldest, flags, and so on. Keep Everything does of course include a search field which is helpful for filtering and locating content.

iOS Version

The iOS version of Keep Everything naturally does not allow for drag and drop import, but if you have a URL copied to the system clipboard, the app will automatically download and archive the page without you having to manually perform the paste.

It also includes a built-in web browser for downloading and archiving web content directly in the app, as well as the ability to add photos from your photo library, or take a new photo from within the app using the iOS camera.


The iOS version has the same content management structure as the desktop version, and content can be shared to other supporting iOS app. It’s nice to have mobile access to your personal archive, and easy to set up syncing using Dropbox as the middleman.

Beautifully Designed

Keep Everything is beautifully designed and syncs well via Dropbox. There’s no iCloud support, and because Keep Everything doesn’t have its own server, you might need to monitor the amount of data that accumulates in your Dropbox account.

      Alex, thank you for your feedback. Both Evernote and Pocket are great, but I try to share other solutions that take a slightly different approach. But at the same, as you can see, we also make reference to other applications as well.

    Another one bites the dust.
