(PRWEB) September 05, 2012
Annotary is pleased to announce the official launch of its new social web application and browser extension at TechCrunch Disrupt. Founded by Ashok Nayar and Travis Hardman, Annotary allows users to bookmark and highlight web pages, take notes, and share with others. New users can sign up for free at http://annotary.com.
Annotary’s founders spent the past several months extensively interviewing customers, understanding the problems organizing online information, and designing the web’s premier bookmarking and annotation tool. Unlike other tools, Annotary focuses heavily on sharing, allowing users to organize bookmarks into topical collections and share annotations publicly with others interested in the same topics.
“We all do the same research over and over again. We search for things that have been searched, bookmarked, highlighted, and summarized before,” said Ashok Nayar, Founder and CEO of Annotary. “Annotary lets users catalog their research and notes on a topic, so the best resources are quickly available to others researching similar topics.”
The Annotary team is officially launching their product in the Startup Alley at TechCrunch Disrupt in San Francisco on Monday, September 10, 2012.
The public launch of Annotary includes the following features:
- Bookmark and highlight web pages with the free browser extension; pages stay highlighted when revisited.
- Organize bookmarks into topical collections for easy reference later.
- View other users’ highlighted and annotated pages; just visit http://annotary.com/explore, find an interesting article, and click to view highlights.
- Easily share highlighted pages to social networks, or send them via email.
- Browse and search bookmarks and highlights from the entire Annotary community on a wide variety of topics.
Most of us save our reading and research for ourselves, but rarely share that value with with anyone else. With Annotary, users can keep track of their own research, share it with friends and colleagues, but also quickly identify new resources from other users to help expand their perspectives. Annotary introduces a new paradigm, where everyone benefits from each other’s research.
Annotary is a social app and browser extension that lets users highlight web pages, take notes, and share with others. Unlike other annotation tools, Annotary focuses on sharing as its primary function - allowing users to collect their research and share it publicly with others interested in the same topics. Annotary was founded by Ashok Nayar and Travis Hardman in May 2012 and is headquartered in New York City.
