Minilogs Lets You ‘Playlist The Web’ We’re on a quest for the best ways to collect music, which recently saw us examine Later.fm, an InstaPaper-style web app that makes music collection in these difficult times a little bit easier. Minilogs (free; web) was designed to solve the same problem of collecting music on the web, with a little more versatility. By clicking on a bookmarklet (as with Later.fm), using the Chrome extension, or entering a URL, the app lets you save songs and videos you’ve found on your web travels for future listening, so you don’t lose track of the stuff you like during your busy day. To keep your findings (which can also include non-music things) organized, you can save music in different lists, or minilogs. An included media player lets you stream them; when you do, you can “like” your favorite songs or discard the ones you don’t actually like, which means Minilogs works for auditioning as well as collecting.
