In this world dominated by the Internet, content is a huge deal. According to Domo's data from 2014, per minute nearly two and a half millions pieces of content are shared on Facebook, and Twitter users tweet 270,000 times – numbers that have likely grown since.
Given that not all of it has value, it is even more important to sort what has quality to be used and shared. Knowing this, Cronycle has recently launched an iOS app that promises to be a revolution on how content is discovered and shared. This content discovery and collaboration platform is a place for professionals to discover, share, and annotate the most relevant articles or documents, allowing for it to be the “ultimate brainstorming” tool.
If you own a startup, monitoring important topics that are relevant to the company becomes essential, in order to know what is trending. For financial analysts, for example, monitoring important topics is also imperative, to try and discover the next emerging business trend. If all this can be done while constantly on the go, even better.
Cronycle wants to fulfill this with the release of its new iOS app, which eliminates the hassle of navigating between apps and copying/pasting links, as well as any other content from one platform to another. The app allows iPhone and iPad users to filter Twitter and RSS feeds, and pre-curated boards, in order to find content that is interesting to them and their businesses, being a single space where teams can collaborate on research projects by creating new team boards. Sharing, collaborating and annotating articles is really easy with Cronycle's platform, as all this can be done without ever having to leave it. Users are also notified if their team adds content or comments to boards, making sure that team members are always in the loop.
Founder and CEO Nicolas Granatino highlighted the features that make Cronycle's platform stand out:
“The first thing Cronycle did was provide professionals with a single place to collaborate on any topic imaginable. Users such as consultants, or marketing specialists are constantly on the go and we want to provide them with even more value through the iOS app. The new board features will keep users' creative insights flowing, on any project, so they can do the best work possible, whether it is for themselves or for their clients.”
Cronycle also announced new board features for its web version:
- New Engagement Score system: allows users to see just how useful a particular article is for any topic, within their own team context, before they waste time reading non-relevant articles.
- Upload any file to a board: where other team members can comment on it.
- Paste any link to a board: to ensure collaborators can view and comment on any kind of digital content.
With Cronycle's platform, users have a way to navigate through the noise produced by mass media. It allows them to focus solely on the content that matters to them, with the ability of deploying highly customizable feeds that deliver exactly what they want to see.
