Bookmarking, Curation And Social Discovery App: Everplaces Is Pinterest For Locations

Bookmarking, Curation And Social Discovery App: Everplaces Is Pinterest For Locations | bestofsocialmedia | Scoop.it

Giuseppe Mauriello: Everplaces helps people keep track of places that are relevant and interesting to them, like a personal wish list or to-do list. 

It is a new app that essentially functions as a Pinterest for the real world, a service that lets you save and share snapshots of interesting places via the Web or smartphones.

 

From official website, key features are:

1) CREATE YOUR PERSONAL COLLECTION
Keep a record of all the amazing places you've experienced in your travels or those you'd love to try out one day. Make them personal by adding your own pictures, categories and notes, and we'll turn them into a beautiful, organized and useful collection.

 

2) EXPLORE WHAT OTHER PEOPLE LIKE
You can follow a whole person or only some of their categories, and you can save any place you find directly to your collection.

 

3) EXCHANGE RECOMMENDATIONS WITH FRIENDS
Help your friends find the best spots in cities or countries you know well. You can share any place in your collection by email or SMS and post to Facebook or Twitter.

 

4)KEEP YOUR FAVORITE PLACES IN ONE PLACE
You never know when you discover a great place, so we make it possible for you to save places anywhere - on your mobile, browser or using the Everplaces bookmarklet.

 

5) ACCESS YOUR COLLECTION ANYWHERE
Your Everplaces collection follows you everywhere, so it's at hand on any computer or mobile you use, exactly when you need it. 

 

Check and try out it: https://everplaces.com

Doodle: easy scheduling with your friends!

Long overdue! I use Doodle all the time and love it. It's really one of the best social media app I've ever used. Getting people together nowadays is one of the hardest thing to do. We're all so busy! So Doodle to the rescue.

"It helps scheduling meetings and other appointments. Doodle is simple, quick, free and requires no registration. Simply set up a poll, send a link to all participants, watch progress online, and finally choose the most suitable date."

Who's got time to write a journal? Pick up Path, it is so much more. | bestofsocialmedia | Scoop.it

Path is a lovely app. It's so much more than a journaling tool. It is practical, visual and shareable. With it you keep track of what you do, where you are, what you see and makes it easy to share with friends or with your regular apps such as Twitter or Foursquare. Path's interface is amazing. Try it!

Moviegram — The poor, good looking cousin of IMDB

Moviegram — The poor, good looking cousin of IMDB | bestofsocialmedia | Scoop.it

At last! Movies finally get an app that's nice to look at!

We love IMDB but they started so early and they are so data rich, that they've overlooked the design part of the process. Moviegram is all about design and simplicity. It is really poor when it comes to content but if you're just looking for a quick idea about the latest movie then Moviegram is made for you.  It has all the basics and aggregated ratings...

Podcasts addicted? Look no further! Stitcher is it! | bestofsocialmedia | Scoop.it

I love podcasts. But what a chore! Until the latest IOS update the syncing process was so annoying that I often ended up missing episodes of my favorite shows. No more! Stitcher simply streams the shows. Allows you to create your favorites list. Updates it automatically...and suggests other programs one may find interesting. Amazingly great!

Hoppit is the Songza of restaurants...

An atmosphere for every meal follows a song for every mood. Is that a trend? Some will call it curation, others filtering, guidance or crowd wisdom. We definitely like both ideas, Songza definitely works...we are putting Hoppit to the test!

Spool Is Enabling Users On Collaborative Curation

Spool Is Enabling Users On Collaborative Curation | bestofsocialmedia | Scoop.it

Excerpted from article:

 

"Today Spool is mostly being used to bookmark and sync content that you want to consume later across multiple devices.

But it sees an opportunity to be more than just a way for users to manage content that is interesting to them. It is also enabling them to share that content with relevant groups.

 

The application is a bit of a combination of Dropbox and Evernote, letting users store videos, articles, images and even PDFs in the cloud. But the sharing aspect is what is really interesting and a real opportunity.

 

While Facebook and other services are enabling so-called frictionless sharing of what our friends and contacts are watching and consuming at any given time, that has also resulted in a lot of noise and not a whole lot of signal. It is hard to know what’s good and what’s not. So what Spool hopes to do is to enable users to more easily share relevant content within groups..."
