We believe time is our most valuable asset.
We believe it is waste of valuable time to spend minutes or even hours every day to go through dozens of websites, blogs, social media sites etc. manually.
We believe that all the new information that you are interested in, should be automatically aggregated into one place from various sources you care about (both Internet and intranet) into easy-to-read format and automatically filtered based on the rules you define.
We believe that the faster you learn, gain new knowledge and information the better you will succeed in life as an individual and as an organization. Therefore it is vital to learn new things every day and follow relevant and valuable sources of information effortlessly.
We believe privacy is important so that only you know what sources you follow.
You can create folders (e.g. based on category) and use them to group similar feeds. Feeds and folders can be arranged with a mouse by using drag & drop. This makes it easy to read e.g. all new feed items in folder "Leadership" (just click the folder).
You can create Rules that are triggered either when a new article arrives (is loaded from the source) or when an article is viewed. Rules can use article title, author and content as an input for rule conditions.
Rule conditions support scanning based on words, text fragment, regular expression and "all", "any", "none" type grouping logic.
Rules can trigger actions such as desktop notification (using Chrome notification system), sound effect, highlighting of the article border, hiding or deleting the article, adding a tag, marking the article as a favorite or highlighting certain words or parts of the content text.
