Curate Browsable Web Page Collections with Nextly

Curate Browsable Web Page Collections with Nextly | Content Curation World | Scoop.it
Browse hand-picked collections of webpages and curate your own.
Robin Good's insight:



Nextly is a free web app which allows you to create collections of web pages that can be easily navigated as a tour on any device. 


Via the integrated Add Page feature or the accompanying bookmarklet you can add just about any web page to one of your collections, as well as content coming from Twitter, Facebook or RSS feeds and other social media.


A unique characterizing feature of Nextly is that the content of a collection gets pre-loaded when accessed by a user, making the browsing through elements of the collection quite fast. 


When browsing through a Nextly collection all original web pages are reproduced as they appear on the web, and are rapidly pre-fecthed to provide a faster loading experience.


My comment: Potentially a valuable content curation tool to organize specific sets of articles and distribute them in a format that is effective ad easy to access. It can be used also as an effective new reader and news discovery tool.


Free to use.

Crea colecciones de páginas Web navegables con Nextly

 

Nextly es una aplicación web gratuita que te permite crear colecciones de páginas web por las que puedes navegar de forma fácil como si realizaras un tour en cualquier dispositivo.

Es potencialmente una valiosa herramienta de curaduría de contenidos para organizar conjuntos específicos de artículos y distribuirlos en un formato que es eficaz y de fácil acceso. También se puede utilizar como un nuevo lector eficaz y como herramienta de descubrimiento de prensa y contenidos.

I'm going to have to investigate this further to see how practical it REALLY is.  It seems like every week there's something else like this that comes out. 

 

One thing that occurs to me thought:  I wonder if it would be possible to use this or tools like it, to create sellable content...some new type of curated content ebook?

The Social News Discovery Visual Browser for iPads: Rockmelt


Robin Good: If you have an iPad and you are looking for a better way to find, discover, browse, search and consume news stories, the new Rockmelt browser for iPads is definitely worth a road test.


Unlike other popular browsers, "rather than showing you a big, empty window--or just whatever site you were looking at the last time you used it--Rockmelt offers up a visual stream of personalized content, culled from friends on Facebook and Twitter, RSS subscriptions, and sites that fall into your designated categories of interest.


Posts, articles, images, and the rest take the form of big, tappable tiles in two endless columns--an infinitely scrolling stream of content.


Touch one of the items, and, when possible, it pops open in a stripped-down reader view.


As you’re checking out that content, you can jump to a full view of the website it’s hosted on, follow links, or just dip back to your stream to find something else to look at."


"Overall, it’s a fairly radical take on what a tablet browser should be, one that starts with the go-anywhere, find-anything utility of the browsers we’re familiar with and grafts a visual, content-curation element on top of it all.


In this sense, the new Rockmelt is sort of like a mash-up of Pulse, Flipboard, and Safari--a browser that’s also a news reader, with a dash of social network to round it out."
