E-mail address to use when buying Hookmark

As part of the purchase checkout, you will need to specify an email address at which will send you two emails: a receipt and a license key.

  1. Please make sure that you type this email address in carefully.
  2. If you don’t receive your activation key, please check your spam folders, and contact us if it’s not there.

System requirements

macOS 10.13.6 and newer official releases. Disabling SIP may cause problems with software including Hookmark.

**: Software Updates included for one year with Hookmark Standard and Hookmark Pro purchases, subsequent updates require an Updates License

When you buy Hookmark (Standard or Pro), you can use Hookmark for as long as you want. However, we cannot provide free updates for life. So, each paid license of Hookmark also gives you the right to updates that are released within 12 months of the activation of your Hookmark license URL key. If you install a version of Hookmark that was released after your Updates period has ended, Hookmark will ask you to downgrade to an older version or purchase an Updates License to get another year of updates.

Hookmark Standard and Hook Pro customers can always roll back to any release of Hookmark that was built by CogSci Apps before their license expired.

Updates Licenses (renewals)

Before or after your initial 12-month license expires, you can buy an Updates License. An Updates License gives you access to all the software updates to Hookmark that will be released during the next year.

As noted above, even if you don’t purchase an Updates License, you can continue to use your licensed copies of Hookmark (but you will not be able to get new updated versions until you purchase an Updates License).

Basic mode (free, automatically kicks in after Trial expires)

When the Hookmark trial expires, Hookmark downgrades automatically to Hookmark Basic. In Basic mode, users can generate shareable email links (hook://email), but not links to other types of items (such as files or tasks). Basic mode users can use (click on and activate) as many links as they like. They can use links they previously created and any links received from others. However, most other features are disabled in Hookmark Basic. Please refer to the table above.

Upgrading from Standard to Pro

After applying a Standard license, you can upgrade from Standard to Pro. You get access to one year of Hookmark updates from the time at which you activate the Upgrade license (by successfully clicking on its license key URL, which requires an Internet connection). Upgrade from Hookmark Standard to Pro for $40.99!

Educational pricing

Hookmark Standard and Hook Pro are available at a discount to full-time students, faculty and staff members of accredited — as long as they are for your own use. Qualifying customers may use our Educational Store.
