Here at useKit we almost missed the end of 2010 and suddenly Christmas was two days ahead. Until the 22nd of December we were running over the tasks of the last major release in 2010, adding a bunch of new features such as: Google Search integration, direct sharing of content or our new “one-click” clipping. And after the rumors that Yahoo would shut down delicious, we decided to drive our head developer nuts and added an import functionality for delicious bookmarks to the release. With a great effort of all our developers, we were able to release before Christmas and even had time for a small Christmas party.
- Import of personal delicious bookmarks.
- Integration into Google Search page.
- Send content to non useKit contacts.
We are proud how easy it is to import all your delicious bookmarks into useKit and even preserve the tags. It only takes three easy steps after being registered.
After a successful import, you will see the following dialogue confirming the import and showing some statistics. You can now retrieve, organize and share your bookmarks or add new content. In addition, useKit recognizes the type of URL and content such as slideshares, youtube videos or doodle votes is directly shown. As an example visit Nicolas’ delicious bookmarks here.
Please provide us with feedback on how you like our integration and what could improve your way of finding useKit content.
To allow the sharing of large files, web-clippings or any other content with non useKit users, we added what we call “one-to-one content”. A send button below every content item allows to send a single content item to any email address or useKit contact.
The recipient will receive a notification with a link to the content item. For reasons of security, the link is limited to three downloads. In a next step, we will include an optional password for the link. This function can be used to send large files to people with limited inboxes, for the fast exchange of information or for anything else.
