Most, if not all, people these days spend a huge amount of their time on their smartphones doing everything from communicating, playing games, scrolling through social networks, discovering new information and collaborating on projects. As a writer, it’s important for me to keep up-to-date on trending topics in the tech sphere, but it can be quite overwhelming.

There’s just so much information out there, that sometimes I feel like I’m drowning in a tsunami of data! I’ve tried to employ tactics such as skimming through articles and posts or typing different search terms to pull up the most relevant information. But I can only skim so much, and clickbait comes up pretty often on things that look relevant, but aren’t.

There’s now a company trying to change the way users discover content and share it with others. Recently launched content discovery and collaboration platform, Cronycle, aims to provide a streamlined, efficient way to find and share content for professionals on the go, without having to leave the platform with its iOS app. Users can discover, share, and annotate the most relevant articles or documents for ultimate brainstorming. Remember creating mind maps in elementary school? Now picture the 2016 version of that.

Users can filter through articles on Twitter and RSS feeds, as well as pre-curated boards. They can also customize and personalize their own boards for topics that interest them the most using Cronycle’s Boolean search filtering. Users can collaborate with a team on specific topics, by annotating articles, sharing, upvoting links, and tagging other team members so they’ll be sure to read your ideas and notes.

Filtering the noise of mass media is perfect for professionals, especially marketing agencies where workers are constantly on the go. Even while offline (if they’re on the subway, or on a flight), users can add articles to boards they may see in their feed, or comment and reply to other members.

Always making sure to keep my creative juices flowing, Cronycle has been pretty great so far for me. Although it is relatively new, it’ll be interesting to see how it stacks up against other news readers such as Feedly that have the content discovery aspect part down pretty well.
