I must be honest, this is the first 'Thing' that I know very little about. I am not the best at organising personal information, which may sound surprising to some since I am an information professional. Personal Information Management (PIM) seems like something that could really benefit my life. However, to me PIM means more information for me to organise or indeed, reorganise!
I don’t think I will use any of the tools tried for this task. We must think about convenience along with privacy, if I don’t find the tools convenient, I am not going to use them. Pocket has been around for over 10 years, and I’ll put my hand up and say I have never heard of it, until now. I downloaded the app and gave it a go… but no I wasn’t sold. Yes, I can see the obvious advantages, namely if you’re Wi-Fi keeps dropping, but all I see is another ‘thing’ for me to organise!
Evernote is on my iPhone and iPad… I have ignored it on both devices for years… who knew it could organise my life! Well it might do if I give it chance but alas, no, I am not sold on this one either, or Feedly, for that matter. I think I’ll stick to what I know on this occasion, which is not like me. I tend to try new technologies with enthusiasm, perhaps if I spend some time with Evernote I may be more passionate. It seems I am in minority on this one, considering the amount of RSS reader services available.
