Android And iPhone App For Curated Street Style Fashion: Kaleidoscope

Android And iPhone App For Curated Street Style Fashion: Kaleidoscope | Be Productive | Scoop.it

Giuseppe Mauriello: Kaleidoscope is a fashion inspiration and shopping app. It combines the viral browsing of sites like Pinterest, the fashion inspiration of street style and the power shopping of sites like Shopstyle. It’s the place to browse, share and shop inspirational pictures.

 

From Mashable: " A curated feed of street-style images for your iPhone or Android phone.

Human curators help you shop products similar to those featured in the feed.

 

There’s a few things that make Kaleidoscope a standout. For one, its high-quality feed of street-style images. Instead of depending on user-generated content for fashion inspiration, Kaleidoscope displays thumbnails of photographs pulled from lookbook.nu or produced on its own.

 

Kaleidoscope also brings quality curation to another key part of its service: product recommendations. The app uses ShopStyle‘s API to locate products that match the clothes in each photograph, and internal staff filter through the options to offer users the best fit.

 

We also like the app’s integration with third-party networks. It’s easy to share looks straight to Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest...."

The Official Content Curation Tools Universe Map

The Official Content Curation Tools Universe Map | Be Productive | Scoop.it

Robin Good: Everytime I see a new post or article claiming to list the best content curation tools I know I am in for some disappointment.

 

Most of these lists just pick up names from other lists without even bothering to check, test or verify what these tools actually do, whether they are still available. Unfortunately the rush to put out "curated" list of tools and services has created more misinformation than useful lists. 

 

But if you, like me, are on the lookout for new and effective tools to curate your own content or the one of your customers, I have created a comprehensive map of all the curation tools available online and I keep it fresh and updated almost on a daily basis.

 

The map presently lists over 250 content curation tools which you can navigate much more easily than it was possible on my earlier versions of this map.

 

On the right side of the map you will find all of the news and content curation tools available online today. On the left side, you can find bookmarking, link lists builders, clippers and lots of tools to operate with RSS feeds (which are still at the heart of a curator's job).

Full map: http://bit.ly/ContentCurationUniverse  

Share it.

Content Curation Platform Scoop.it Introduces New Dashboard Visualizing the Interest Graph

Excerpted from article on Scoop.it's Blog:

"Our vision at Scoop.it has always been that the answer to that resided in the Interest Graph. The social graph is not enough to filter our interests: just because we’re connected or friends doesn’t mean you share my interests for online gaming, freeride skiing or astronomy. And these interests – we’ve learned – are very long tail: just on Scoop.it, hundreds of thousands of topics have been created by our users since we launched. There is no way to curate the curators in an absolute sense.

 

Instantly creating a dynamic feed of all of the most recent posts on the topics you follow as well as topics within many different categories of interest, the new Visual Dashboard brings discovery and inspiration to a whole new level.

 

Discovery and Curation are two sides of the same (content) coin.

In the new dashboard, you’ll be able to rescoop on the fly any content worth sharing to your audience while easily adding your own context from the now-classic Scoop.it publishing pop-up..."
