the place for every thing
Austin, TX (PRWEB) March 6, 2007
iTaggit, a new Web site that aims to change the way people collect, organize, and enjoy their personal items and collections, today announced enhanced features that allow users to develop and manage their collections with ease. Significant upgrades include an "Add Item Wizard," a Flickr-like picture uploader, an Amazon import tool, and Item Publisher. These new tools further augment the way iTaggit is already helping people maximize value and enjoyment from their possessions.
With these new features, users now have three new ways to add items to their online accounts:
- Add Item Wizard. This tool quickly guides users through the process of including item images, files, and fields and adding their items to one or more of their collections.
- Picture Uploader. The uploader allows for instant photo inclusion and categorization of items.
- Amazon Import Tool. Users can now look up critical information on Amazon.com and instantly import images and data about their CDs, DVDs and books into the users' iTaggit account.
"Adequate organization has been the Achilles heel of personal asset management," said CEO David Altounian. "The new tools we are providing further underscores iTaggit's quest to make this process as pain-free as possible. Throughout beta testing, we will continue to look for ways to make it as easy as possible for our users to bring their real-life interests and collections online in new and exciting ways."
In addition to streamlining the collection development process, iTaggit provides Item Publisher, a new way that users can extend the value of their possessions, publishing their items from iTaggit on any Web site that is HTML-ready. Users can easily copy and paste their entire collections or any item they choose, whether it is a photo and details on their favorite comic book, or the newest addition to their Godzilla action figure collection, to online social networks like MySpace and Facebook, or eBay auctions and del.icio.us.
"The Item Publisher feature is great because I can now publish items from my collections to any site that accepts user-generated content," said member Chris Rabel. "Being able to post a photo and relevant details of my most treasured keepsakes to my MySpace profile provides an opportunity to connect and share my passion with everyone, even if they aren't collectors themselves."
iTaggit provides an online environment for cataloging, managing, and sharing collections of items, while preserving user and data privacy. The site features community resources, where users can connect and interact with friends, like-minded collectors, and knowledgeable experts. iTaggit's site, which is still in beta-testing and already has more than 4,000 registered members, is gaining traction as more features continue to be added.
iTaggit is a web-based item management information system that provides "the place for every thing" by securely storing and organizing information, enabling research, and building communities based on individuals and collections of items. This essential online environment allows our user community to maximize the value and enjoyment of their stuff. iTaggit was founded in 2006 in Austin, Texas.
