Think you know everything about Pearltrees mobile? Here are five gems you may have missed


 

Over the years, we’ve worked hard to make the Pearltrees experience absolutely coherent across the different platforms. But at the same time, we’ve leveraged some specific advantages offered by mobile devices to deliver a great experience on the go both on iOS and Android. Beyond Pearltrees’ general benefits, our mobile apps have gradually accumulated a lot of unique advantages. Here are five things you may have missed that will make you love Pearltrees even more on mobile.
 


 

1. Save anything from apps!
You already use the extension to collect what you like on the web, but did you know you can use it to collect photos, notes and items directly within other apps? Simply use the “Share” button to put anything you want into Pearltrees. It works exactly the same for Android users and on iOS8. And, just like the Web version, all the classic collecting tools are available so you can add anything to your collections by email, via Facebook and Twitter or directly from the app with the star button.
 


 

2. Upload tons of photos all at once
No other app handles photos like Pearltrees! Beyond the amazing photo organization capacity, our apps also have a great advantage: massive uploads. You can upload multiple photos from the Pearltrees app by clicking on the “add” button, select as many photos as you want and upload them all at once! iOS8 users can even go to the photo app and upload a whole moment (up to fifty images) in two clicks! There’s no limit to what you can do with your photos on Pearltrees.
 

3. Universal sharing
Don’t you hate installing an app just to see what someone sent you? You’re not alone. Thanks to our universal HTML5 interface, you can be sure that any collections will be displayed nicely whatever the device. Besides, visitors will be able to check related collections and even do their own search within Pearltrees. Now, what you share from Pearltrees can be viewed anywhere, even without the Pearltrees app. So go ahead and share your collections on the go without a second thought.
 

4. No bars? Offline mode!
Subways, airplanes, offices facing interior walls… There are still places where your network leaves you hanging. For these situations, Pearltrees apps have an offline mode. In any situation, browse your collections, watch your photos, read some articles. You can even add notes or photos to your account while being off line. This Premium feature is a life saver. With Pearltrees it doesn’t matter where you are, your interests are just a tap away.
 

5. Free up space on your mobile!
Pearltrees is an amazing way to preserve the limited (and expensive) storage on your mobile devices. Add all your content to Pearltrees — especially photos — then delete the images from your camera roll. Everything will be saved to your Pearltrees account and will stay visible anytime, even offline. Best of all, what you’ve uploaded to Pearltrees takes virtually no space on your phone unlike the original files.
 

The Pearltrees app adds a new dimension to your mobile devices. It’s probably why the App Store featured us in nearly 120 countries over the last month. If you have not downloaded it yet, give it a try! See for yourself why we’re so sure you’ll love it. And if you agree, give us a 5-star review!

Happy pearling!
 

Introducing a new column with suggestions, tips and yes, ads!

Starting today on Pearltrees’ website, you’ll see a new column on the right with suggestions, tips and, for non premium users, progressively ads. Some of you may have already seen this during tests but now we’re making it fully live. The new column will only be visible on computers and not on embeds, mobiles nor tablets. Let’s go through it in detail:
 


 
1. Ads
Yes, even if ads are everywhere on the Web, they are not always popular… In many cases, they can be noisy, invasive and often distracting. The challenge is to integrate them while limiting their inconvenience. After testing several options during a couple of months, we have chosen a clear separation between ads and collections. Thanks to the new column, your workflow is preserved and some advertising can be displayed without being invasive.

Nonetheless, we understand not everybody is fond of ads. That’s why all our premium plans suppress ads and offer to close the column for a wider display. If you’d like to welcome visitors to your collections without any advertising, just select the professional plan and activate the white label option.
 


 
2. Suggestions
The new column also showcases one the most distinctive capabilities of Pearltrees: the “related” feature. See the collections most closely related to the one you’re browsing without clicking any buttons. These real-time suggestions based on your interests transforms your navigation inside Pearltrees. Now you can explore a topic blazingly fast and discover more precious content than ever.

For this new widget, we’ve upgraded our central algorithm “tree rank” both in terms of relevancy and performance. This benefits many features throughout Pearltrees: “my interests”, “search”, “related” and more. These changes make the whole discovery experience in Pearltrees more accurate and dynamic.
 


 
3. Tips
The first thing you’ll see in your new column, below the suggestions, will probably be some “tips”. In addition to welcome newcomers, they can also be displayed from time to time to make sure everyone knows about the advanced features in Pearltrees. It’s a great opportunity to get the most out of the product.
 
This new column will be upgraded in the coming weeks and months. You will see more useful elements appearing as they’re developed. Stay tuned, we have exciting things planned!
 
 

Non à la loi sur le Renseignement !

Le 7 janvier dernier, nous avons affiché sur notre blog la bannière “Je suis Charlie”. Il s’agissait de marquer notre solidarité avec le journal attaqué et notre attachement fondamental aux libertés politiques.

Aujourd’hui, un projet de loi sur le Renseignement est en cours de discussion et menace gravement nos libertés. Nous croyons que tous ceux qui comprennent les enjeux de la loi doivent se mobiliser pour l’arrêter.

Qui mieux que Jérémie Zimmermann, co-fondateur de la Quadrature du Net, pour donner son éclairage sur la situation ? Nous l’avons donc invité à créer une collection de liens pour mettre en lumière les enjeux du projet de loi et partager des moyens d’action citoyens. Un dossier à faire connaître et à diffuser sans modération !
