    Pearltrees's review

    Published: 2013-07-18, by Manu Galvez.

    Pearltrees is an app to collect, organize and share everything you like

    • Original
    • User-friendly interface
    • Elegant
    • Sharing options
    • Highly configurable
    • Early times (needs more users)

    "Cultivate your interests"

    This isn't a new concept of app but lays out a new way to collect, organize and share any content you like. You can add content (videos, pics, websites, profiles,... you name it) to your profile as pearls linked to others and setting up your own network of interests. It's true, there are other apps or websites focus on providing tools to organize all the content you like in a single site. The point with Pearltrees is precisely the original and visual way of making it.

    Once you've signed up, you can start adding pearltrees and pearls to them. Thus, you can add webpages, notes, photos, gallery of photos, and even apps to your trees. Profiles are public by default (you can change privacy settings), so others can see your interests and add your pearls to their own trees. In addition, you can add friends to discover things they like and even team-up on your favorite topics.

    Pearltree isn't just a platform to "show off" your interests. They provide an intuitive interface to find and access your favorite content easily. What's more, it works as a social network: you can comment on others' profile, message them, edit your own profile and interact with millions of users in multiple ways.

    Did you get it? Well, it's hard to explain this way: I encourage you to download the app (it's free after all) and get it a chance. It can leave no one feeling indifferent
