Curate Beautiful-Looking List-Based Slideshows with Quietly

Robin Good's insight:


Quietly is a new web-based app which allows you to create beautiful list-based slideshows which can be shared and embedded on any website.


Each card in a Quietly slideshow can be made up by a:

- website - from which you can pick any image

- an image - which you can search or upload

- a location on the map

- a name, a URL and a description

The user can also customize font styling, the cover image, and many other visual components of his slideshow.


Quietly creates a beautiful profile page for each publisher, from which one can access all of his slideshow lists as well as the main feed. 

Quietly curators can also easily pick any *slide* from other lists and add it to anyone of their existing ones. 


*An excellent tool to organize and present list-based information in a visual slideshow format. Very easy to use. Cool, quiet interface, makes working with it a pleasant task. Creates pro-looking presence for list publishers while allowing to embed created lists anywhere.


Free to use.
