Power to the People: 9 Extra Tools to Help You Organize the Internet


I want to thank everyone that has been checking out the guest post I wrote at Buffer, it has done really well! One of the cool side effects from writing a limited list is that I left products and applications out by necessity, and it started a conversation about tools I didn’t even know about yet!

So here is a list of 9 tools that readers brought to my attention in the comments and on twitter. Thanks for helping us all be more productive and organized on the web!

HootSuite – A social media dashboard that includes basic analytics, search options, and organization. Tip o’ the hat to Dorian Patterson.

Bit.ly – The standard in link-shortening software. I’ve been using it for a couple years, offers custom urls and analytics. Tip o’ the hat to ME.

RockMelt – Another browser on the market? Sure there are plenty, but Rockmelt offers complete social media integration! Tip o’ the hat to Valon Canhasi.

Symbaloo – great custom news and update site. Tip o’ the hat to Daniela Bolzmann.

Dropbox – Great cloud storage solution for keeping your stuff together online, especially large files. 2gb free storage to start. Use this code to sign up (Disclaimer: This code is a referral that just gives me some extra storage, no money). Tip o’ the hat to Shawn.

CamelCamelCamel – Web store price trackers and alerts, great for using with Amazon. Tip o’ the hat to BJMT.

Wunderlist – Powerful web based list making and to-do app. Tip o’ the hat to Robert Clay.

SpringPad– Cool web organization app that looks like a fusion between Evernote and Pinterest. I haven’t used it yet but it looks beautifully designed. Tip o’ the hat to James Schwabacher.

Clipix– Another cool looking web clipping app, not as fully featured as Evernote, but simplicity could be its best feature. I look forward to trying it out! Tip o’ the hat to Dmoser34 on the Buffer comment thread.

So there you go, 9 more great apps and services to try out! Do you use any of these? Anything else we can share with each other? I would love to hear your comments.

Have a great day!
