One of the more interesting productivity apps that has come out recently is Pearltrees. It’s an app that helps a user in collecting and organizing their interests and related information.
Pearltrees does something that is also addressed by other apps but it does it differently by presenting the information in a unique, but very effective way. A few months ago, it released a web app and then released an iPad app. Now, Pearltrees is coming to the iPhone.
The iPhone version of Pearltrees carries all of the features that has made the service so interesting – the ability to explore pearls, find new interesting content, the ability to make new pearls and search the pearls you have created. All of these features are seamlessly integrated in a user interface that is surprisingly very organize. For the iPhone app, Pearltrees introduces a new feature, the ability to make the photos in the photo library into new pearls, which gives users a deeper level of customization while using the app.
Pearltrees is a useful app because it allows you to see the connections and relationships between the content that you create. When you click on the discover icon, you can wander off virtually to related content that is contained in other user’s collections of pearls. It is a fun and nifty way of discovering interesting information that is related to your own areas of interest. This is an especially handy way of doing research since you do it in a more intuitive but also entertaining way.
