Zan from Mixtape Communications is taking a break this month. Luckily Noland Hoshino has jumped in with this special guest blog post for today’s Free Tool Friday.
If you’re like me, you’re overwhelmed by the abundance of good content and information online. There are so many great articles, and so little time to read them. You can go mad if you don’t have a system to sort and consume the goodies.
I am like a digital squirrel (Craig Newmark should be proud). I like to gather information and store them on one of my many cloud applications, like, delicious, Evernote, Dropbox, Pocket, and Google Reader. However, sometimes I forget where I stored the information and have to search for it.
Well, there’s a tool that merges all of your cloud applications into one folder called Hojoki. I know. Awesome, right! Hojoki brings together activity feeds from apps like Basecamp, Box, Google Calendar, and more. The best part, it’s FREE and they have a mobile app for both iPhone and Android.
But there’s more. You can create a work folder and collaborate with your colleagues. If you’re gathering or have already collected articles and information for a project , you can use Hojoki to merge your individual folders together (but still keep your cloud sources separate). Once you’ve created a workspace, you can use the search feature to find a specific article. This will save you time from archiving your own information.
Try Hojoki. It’s NUTS!
