Hookmark 4.0

Hookmark Version 4.0 (4981; Integration v. 238) is now available for download.


This build:

  • Hook has been renamed to Hookmark
  • Hook Lite has been renamed to Hookmark Basic
  • Hook Essentials has been renamed to Hookmark Standard

Read our Rebranding FAQ to learn why we have made these changes, and what the implications are. In sum, the renaming does not affect the terms of license agreements. Your old license keys will still work. Hookmark’s URL schemes (hook://) are not changed. Of course, the website and associated assets are being updated.

Rather than build a whole bunch of changes into Hookmark 4.0, we have kept it lean. The reality is that Hookmark has a ton of very powerful features that most users are not yet using. This build is an opportunity for us to showcase and customers to start leveraging Hookmark, the most versatile, powerful software for macOS that interoperably links your digital life.

This build is preparation for upcoming more significant updates to Hookmark.

If you are using Hook’s in-app update, this build will not automatically be renamed to Hookmark. You’ll need to rename it manually. This will be corrected in an upcoming release.

Improved resolving of Hookmark’s file links

When trying to resolve links to files that cannot be found, Hookmark now notifies you with a dialog box. This can happen if another user shared a link to a file with you but you don’t have access to the file. It could be that you created the link on a different machine but haven’t made the file available to yourself. This situation does not happen when you open hooked links from the context window; in that case, Hookmark disables the link in the context window

  • FIXED a crash that could happen when attempting to resolve a hook://file/ link to an unavailable file via automation (such as AppleScript).

Integration enhancements

  • NEW: Added support for Arc browser.
  • UPDATED Integration Apple Notes integration to work with macOS Ventura.
  • UPDATED: Added support for OmniFocus 4 (which is in beta).

Eligibility for updates

Hookmark software updates are free to any Hookmark CogSci Apps customer with a Hookmark Updates license that was valid at the time the update was released. Hookmark Pro and Hookmark Essentials each come with one year of free access to software updates.

If your Hookmark Updates license has expired and you apply this update, please note that Hookmark will revert to Lite mode until you purchase and apply an Updates license. However, you can also revert to a previous version of Hookmark that was released during your Updates License period. Upgrading from Essentials to Pro includes an additional 12-month Updates license.
