foldier new build is here!

April 28, 2008 1 comment

We rolled out yet another build of foldier. This one is more like a full release as it introduces a new look and many, many new features.

Here is a list of some of the more exciting things we added:

  • Facebook connector to connect your pictures and your contacts from Facebook.
  • Flashes and Flash Feed to give you instant update to what is going on.
  • Browser bookmarklet to quickly add links to foldier directly from your browser.
  • Easy setup wizard to make it easier to start using and enjoying the power of foldier!
  • Better (cleaner) look and feel (let us know what you think and how to improve it)
  • Contact manager to see and manage in one place who is connecting with you and vice versa.
  • A feedback link is always there for you to send us opinions and questions.
  • More and more features were added – look throughout the interface.

We hope you may like the new foldier and stay assured we are not done.
Stay tuned…
