What can you use the app for?

Kippt is a web app that makes it easy for users to organize, save and search for information they've located across the internet. Additionally users can add notes to the content so organizing can be even easier. Users can also use Kippt as a reader and can sort their articles by their quality or which ones they intend to read next. This is also a great way to organize one's RSS feeds. Kippt is basically a super bookmarking tool that allows for user input so that articles can be sorted and recalled at a later point with ease. According to Kippt.com: "We want to make your information workflow and archiving effortless." Kippt also offers a Chrome or a Bookmarklet so that Kippt can reside easily on one's browser so that saving links can be done without having to keep Kippt open in a separate browser or tab. Kippt also has a search function built in so users can search by a tag or keyword for past articles.

What is the history and popularity of the app?

Kippt is a 2-person operation based out of San Francisco, California and Helsinki, Finland. It is developed by Jori Lallo and Kaari Saarinen. Jori Lallo also developed and maintains Grove.io, a hosted IRC chat service.

What are the differences to other apps?

Kippt offers some browser extensions for Chrome. It is also nicer than standard bookmarking since content can be notated and sorted in a more logical manner. Kippt has been described as Delicious-meets-Instapaper by many. Kippt has an Inbox and Read Later tagging system built into it but also offers a place for users to permanently file articles and content. Sort of like a bookshelf, but for links. Kippt presently does not have a social media aspect built into it so users can't share links to their content through Kippt. The developers explained that they intend to keep the app very simple for the time being, so it can focus on what it does best- sorting, organizing and storing links.

How does the web app look and feel to use?

Kippt appears clean, professional and it is easy to use. It is much more functional for those who install the browser plugin since information can be indexed once the user finds it directly from their browser instead of being fed into Kippt's web interface. It's search functions are good, tagging is nice, but additional features would be welcomed since the app is simple to a fault. Users can make lists, star articles as being important, or sort them in an inbox or read later category.

How does the registration process work?

The registration process for Kippt is easy and fast. Username, email and password- that's it. Additionally users can register and sign in with their Facebook or Twitter login if that's easier for them. From there users are placed right into the heart of the app and can start using it immediately.

What does it cost to use the application?

Kippt is a free service at this time. There are no plans to make it a paid service.

Who would you recommend the application to?

Kippt is excellent for anyone who reads and gathers information across the internet. It helps users remember what they read and reference that information later. Also, since it's free, anyone can use it. It would be even better if it offered additional features, like the ability to share links.

  • Categorical book-marking
  • Reader and RSS feeds
