Pearltrees overhauls its Android app as mobile adoption grows UPDATE: In a previous version of this article, we suggested that the Android news was an update. While Pearltrees was previously accessibly by web browser, this is the version Android mobile app version of Pearltrees. Pearltrees announced today the launch of the Android version of their content library tool, bringing all of the company’s most recent features and design updates to Android users. “We are proud to bring the power of Pearltrees to the hands of Android users everywhere. Their premium version, launched last October, will allow users to create “private pearls” (the company currently counts more than 50 million public pearls, which are essentially URLs shared and organized), and the updated Android version will likely allow them to expand their premium offer, given that more than 50% of smartphones are Android. Pearltrees is predominantly used in the US, though the French & European markets follow closely behind.

Pearltrees Hits Android, as it Prepares to Become a File Manager Pearltrees is a content curation startup that we’ve been tracking for some time now, and today it’s launching an app on Android. However, there’s a twist, as the launch points towards an expansion of exactly what this service is all about. As with the Web and iOS versions of Pearltrees, the Android app allows you to create, share and explore mindmap-style ‘trees’ of content. So, I could create a tree of articles, images and notes related to a particular theme and then if you searched Pearltrees for that theme, you’d find my tree and related ones by other people. It’s a highly visual, logical way of organizing and sharing ideas and information, and the Android app benefits from the OS’ built-in sharing capabilities. Any Web page can be added to a tree straight from the share menu in your browser. A ‘post-PC’ file manager? It’s fair to say that Pearltrees hasn’t found mainstream fame quite yet as an alternative to more traditional social bookmarking services. ➤ Pearltrees / Google Play

Pearltrees Arrives On Android, Wants To Become The File Manager For The Post-PC Era Pearltrees, the visual and collaborative library that lets you easily organize and bookmark information in tree-like structures, finally launched its Android app for phones and tablets today. The service started out on the web in 2009 and then came to the iPad in 2011 and the iPhone last year. Android, however, as the company’s CEO Patrice Lamothe told me last week, was always one of the most requested platforms, and the team also expects this launch to help it quickly grow its user base. Thanks to the flexibility Android affords developers when it comes to sharing and bookmarking, Lamothe told me, this platform is really the first one that allows the company to fully realize its vision of becoming a “file manager for the post-PC era.” For Pearltrees, this means that you can use the Android app to bookmark and organize content from both apps like Flipboard and the web — something that would be very hard to do on most other platforms. Pearltrees, so far, has raised about $11.5 million.

» Pearltrees, un famoso “raccoglitore di interessi”, arriva finalmente su Android » Software Pearltrees affonda le sue radici nel lontano 2009, ma è solo nel 2011 che arriva su iPad e poi su iPhone; Android è purtroppo, al momento, l’ultimo della fila, ma anche un passo molto importante. L’azienda ha deciso di puntare sulla compatibilità, rendendo l’app disponibile da Froyo in poi, e rinunciando magari a qualcosa in materia di grafica di ultimo grido, pur fornendo comunque un’esperienza appagante. Non è facile descrivere Pearless, che al momento è appena sbarcata sul Play Store ed è destinata senz’altro a crescere via via che più utenti la adotteranno: è presente infatti una componente social, che ci permette di interagire con gli amici e le loro preferenze, ma non è comunque un elemento essenziale dell’app. L’idea è quella di creare un albero di interessi, a partire da noi, dai nostri gusti, dalle nostre app: ciò è possibile condividendo elementi da pressoché ogni app, aggiungendo immagini, note, link a pagine web.
