In today’s world, everything is mobile. Sharing photos, tweets, status updates and check-ins wouldn’t be half as fun if we couldn’t do it from anywhere our busy lives took us. Though long form content creation will remain difficult to mobilize, we see mobile curation as an opportunity to take one step closer to this.
Most aspects of curation are already compatible with today’s smartphones; we can read content, edit and include short-form commentary, and of course, share to various social networks with a few swipes of the finger. With this in mind, we listened to your feedback and combined all of these elements into the very first mobile curation app, Scoop.it for iPhone, which gives users a simple, efficient, and visually appealing way to curate on the go.
Today, we are very glad to announce our new Android app, which will bring mobile curation on the Scoop.it platform to all Android users.
Much like the iPhone app, the Android app will allow you to leverage the suggestions you’ve configured for your topic as well as suggestions from other users. The publishing window is almost identical to that of the website and, of course, you will have all of your sharing options.
But, what’s the best thing about the Scoop.it mobile app for Android? Well, we’ve taken simplicity a step further as the App adds Scoop.it to your browser’s native sharing menu. Now, to curate content you discovered while browsing, you no longer need to copy and paste the URL from your phone’s browser or install the bookmarklet. Content can be posted to Scoop.it by simply clicking your browser’s share button:
And just like its iPhone counterpart, the app allows to you do perform essentially all of the tasks of curating your topics without telling anyone you did it from your phone. Whether your posts are published from your phone or from your computer, your topic pages will always sport the same fluid magazine layout.
The main goal of mobile internet is to make sure you can do all of the great things you do on your computer from your phone without compromising any quality, and that is exactly what we have in mind when creating our mobile apps.
We know that your passions weren’t developed from sitting in front of your computer all day, so why should you have to do this when you want to share them with the world? Take your curation mobile with the new Scoop.it Android app.
