Shelfster – a new tool (compare with Evernote)

April 1, 2010

Today I’ve got an info about Shelfster comparing Evernote. I have read their website and asked for invitation to start testing.   Some info from

Shelfster vs Evernote — Well, Sort Of

“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 images

February 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.

    MIcrosoft Live Lab tool Thumbtack

    August 19, 2009

    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.
