7 signs that you need foldier

  1. You can’t remember where you stored the pictures from your last vacation.
  2. You always spend to much time deciding where to file the new document you received from your boss and always know you won’t find it later when she needs it.
  3. You want to send a web link to some of your Facebook contacts and you don’t want to have to update it all the time.
  4. Your hard drive is getting clunky because you’ve got too many files on it.
  5. You don’t know why three quarters of the bookmarks in your browser are important and you don’t have time to visit them all.
  6. You think you are writing brilliant blog posts and want to build buzz with a click of a button.
  7. You like to send interesting articles to your clients and you want to engage them in conversation about the subject matter privately.

    Someone sent me a folder and your system says you are in private beta, so i have to request a login in order to see get an account, after which presumably I would then make an account, verify my email address with you , and then get to view the link they are sending me. Yes?

    Okay.. your list above. Literally none of it applies to me. I have all that: it’s called Flickr (4 years of photos .. don’t really want a new place) plus my wiki, plus twitter. I don’t use bookmarks.

    I’m totally mystified about why if you want to make a company like this, you don’t let people send something, and the recipient, at the other end of the email, with link to a folder, can then just freaking click to get to it, without having to login (by clicking the link, they are kind of verifying email.. you know?) instead of creating this annoying chain of events.

    Oh, I left out.. search on my local drive and search online.. actually means my info is organized.

    Mary you just mentioned 5 services and we can safely assume with emails and maybe blog and your friend services we go up to 7 or 10.

    So when you search your desktop you cannot find your pictures on Flickr, when you search on Flickr you cannot fine the picture from your friend send it to you via email and so on.

    Your information is organized in separate silos. You cannot have a view of all your data. Foldier does not replace Flickr: it connects to it, foldier won’t replace your local drive: it connects to it.

    Foldier lets you view and organize your data regardless of the physical location where is stored. It does not move the data from where it is.

    You may not need it now, We are betting you will… soon.
