Pearltrees Launches a Premium Service for Private Content Sharing

Pearltrees Launches a Premium Service for Private Content Sharing
Pearltrees offers perhaps the most elegant and visual way of collecting and sharing online content available today, and now the French startup is launching premium accounts that give users more privacy, for a price. As a recap, Pearltrees lets you organise links to online content, visualized as ‘trees’ made up of ‘pearls’. So a pearltree about Apple may contain a branch about Steve Jobs, which then branches off to separate strands about different parts of his life, each linking to related content that is handpicked by users. It’s a concept that has so far spawned a Web app, an iPad app, and most recently an iPhone version. Until now, the service has been free, open and social with, with created trees all searchable by other users. For those who would like to create their own private trees, perhaps for work purposes, the new premium service launches today. ➤ Pearltrees Image credit: iStockPhoto / Thinkstock

Pearltrees releases a new version, without any pearls nor trees The Paris-based startup founded in 2009 once declared: “We focus on the visual potential of Pearltrees to let people dive deeply into their interests and nearly feel them”. Their product, offering a digital curation tool, was unique because of the visual interface voluntareely original: links and folders symbolized by rounded pearls attached together like the branches of a tree. Today, pearls and trees have disappeared to make room for a brand new and larger organisation tool. Two years ago, everyone wanted to build products around “curation” and “interest graph”.

Pearltrees Goes 1.0, Launches Premium Accounts With Private Collections And Sharing Curation and discovery service Pearltrees just announced the launch of its premium accounts. For $4.99/month or $49.99 per year, Pearltrees users will be able to create private pearls for their bookmarks, notes and pictures. This is also Pearltrees’ 1.0 release and marks the first time that all of the company’s apps offer a fully coherent feature set across the web and mobile. Private collections have long been on Pearltrees’ roadmap. As CEO Patrice Lamothe told me earlier this week, the company’s users have long been asking for this feature. The rationale behind charging for private collections is quite interesting: free users contribute to the community, which is built around topics and discovery.

Pearltrees Gets a New Look, New Features and New Premium Tiers Pearltrees, the social curation service that helps you organise Web content, photos and notes (‘pearls’) into mindmap-style ‘trees’, is today unveiling a new look, new features for paying users and revised pro account tiers. Pearltrees was launched in December 2010 and now boasts two million monthly active users, collecting over 50,000 links every day. The new UI, codenamed ‘Asimov’ by the French startup, is designed to provide a coherent, simpler experience across the Web, iOS and a forthcoming Android version. There’s nothing enormously different about it, although there’s now an Apple-style ‘dock’ at the bottom of the page for universal options and a subtly more friendly look that uses responsive design to optimize the layout for different screen sizes.

Pearltrees lanza su opción premium para la creación de árboles privados Si somos usuarios del servicio de curación de contenidos Pearltrees, el cual nos permite organizar y compartir el contenido web de manera visual y elegante, y necesitamos tener un ámbito privado por el cual podamos crear y participar en la elaboración de nuestros árboles de enlaces de contenidos web con todas y cada una de sus ramificaciones (o perlas) específicas, ahora Pearltrees lanza su opción premium. Gracias a esta opción, nosotros, ya sea a nivel individual o de manera colaborativa entre un grupo de personas, podemos crear dichos árboles privados, permitiéndonos compartirlos de forma selectiva hacia aquellas personas que queramos mediante enlaces privados. Pero Pearltrees, además de su servicio premium, el cual lleva aparejada un mejor soporte de usuarios y la no disponibilidad de anuncios, también actualiza tanto su aplicación web así como sus aplicaciones móviles para iPhone y iPad, llegando a la versión 1.0 disponiendo de una interfaz más coherente para todas las plataformas.

Pearltrees Develops its New Interface Further with 'Meaning' Content and file curation and sharing platform Pearltrees has been updated today with new features that include ‘Meaning’, a new organization system. ‘Meaning’ is based on a traditional grid and allows users to drag and drop content into collections that can be shared with others and collaborated on with real-time synchronization. Pearltrees tells us that it hopes the new layout will encourage more collaboration between users. The company may have a point – a conventional grid could well take less time for new users to adapt to than Pearltrees’ old ‘tree of pearls‘ look that it moved away from earlier this year, even if it’s not quite as unique to look at. The France-based company’s video below shows Meaning in action: Meanwhile, Pearltrees’ mobile apps on iOS and Android have been updated with new features including a ‘tunable interest feed’ that delivers personalized content recommendations to your account.
