I came across an interesting web tool today called eSnips. I’m giving it a whirl now to see if I find it useful, but the feedback I’ve read online has been pretty much positive all the way around. TipMonkies and Passing Notes both give it a “thumbs up”.
eSnips, by Net Snippets, is billing itself as a free online research management tool. It has substantial storage space of 1 Gb, and comes with an easy to use interface and a downloadable toolbar to make the upload job even easier.
So, you might be wondering what you can “snip” that might be of use to you. Well, here’s a list:
- Video Files
- Full Pages
- Data/Images from your personal machine
The real benefit is that you can share your research whether it’s useful, useless or otherwise. Though you might have other ways of transporting or storing data, from what I see so far you probably don’t have something as easy to use and fully integrated into the web as eSnips.
My Advice: Give it a try and see if you like it… It’s FREE and it’s from a reputable company.
Africa Insight: Many computer users in Africa don’t have a computer, they go to net cafes. Besides a large 2 Gb Gmail account, this might be a great way for those users to increase storage space and be able to access it from any cafe or computer they have access to.
