It is a usefull website to get information about Web research and other categories in different formats:
- ppt (presentations)
“Shelfster is a free tool that attempts to bridge the gap between note taking/web clipping and annotation/social sharing. This is a good thing, because Evernote, as awesome as it is, just doesn’t share as well as it could. For example, if you want to share a single note in Evernote, the only way to do it is by email (or by email to a service like Ping.FM, but that’s a different post altogether). You can’t find information via Evernote, either, socially or otherwise — Evernote is mainly meant for note taking, and it does what it’s meant for extremely well. With Shelfster, both sharing and searching for information is pretty easy.”
Notable App: a collaboration tool that lets you clip, annotate, and share feedback on websites and imagesFebruary 11, 2010
A few days ago I have got an info about an interesting tool Notable App. Author claims that “At heart, this software is a web-clipping tool with online storage, similar to Evernote. Yet Notable App is designed for sharing clipped web pages with collaborators, making notes on them and receiving feedback in a kind of virtual conversation.”
I had no time to check it and I shall be very glad to get some comments about this tool.
You can find different tools using filetransit website.
You enter a query “Web research” OR “Web clipping” OR “note taking” etc and then you gert a list of free and paid tools with short annotation.

A short extract about one tool as an example
“5. Evernote is my personal favorite and probably the most popular note taking tool available. It offers all the versions – web based, desktop and mobile and syncs your notes between all the 3 mediums effortlessly.“
I preliminary tested rather simple Microsoft tool Thumbtack using Firefox browser. I suppose that using IE browser would be better.
A short excerpt from the homepage
“Thumbtack is an easy way to save links, photos, and anything else you can find on bunch of different Web sites to a single place. Grab the stuff you want, put it into a Thumbtack collection, then get to it from anywhere you can get online. Share it with your friends, or just keep it for yourself. It’s way easier than sending a bunch of links in an e-mail, and even easier than setting lots of favorites in your browser.”
The tool is rather simple but I suppose that Evernote or Zotero or Webnotes or Ubernote are better.
I shall test it with a slow internte in the village later. In the village the best tool is Evernote.
