We often think we’ve seen it all with great Mac utilities. Maybe we’re a bit jaded because Mac’s can do so much so well.
Be prepared, for something cool that’s wicked and this way comes. Maybe. One day. Soon. Perhaps.
Is “gee whiz” dead? Not so. Check the best new utility that you can’t buy. Yet.
I use half a dozen organizers and project trackers and data lists, and lists of lists. Some are great and I can’t do business without them, but none of them really fit me.
It’s me who has to fit the utility’s way of working. While that may always be the case, things are changing.
We’ve received an introduction to Scrybe. Get ready for gee whiz and wow.
No, make that “Geeeee Whizzzz, that’s cool.” Or, “Wow!!” Then, settle down to, “How do they do that?”
Scrybe is a combination utility, a hybrid, that pulls together pieces of utilities we already know and use.
Think calendar, lists, projects, tasks, outliner, communicating—all rolled into one organizer that works in your browser.
Browser? Uh oh. That can’t be good for Mac users, right? Nope.
Scrybe works in Windows and Mac, MSIE, Firefox, and Safari.
Browser organizers just are not as flexible and adaptive and robust as stand alone applications, right?
Wait until you see Scrybe in action.
First, Scrybe is an organizer like you’ve never seen, Mac or Windows. The demo video will give you an idea and reintroduce you to the once lost Wow Factor.
Second, though browser-based, Scrybe has both an online and offline mode, so you’re not stuck when you’re not connected.
Third, Scrybe actually works in ways that are familiar, yet more intuitive—effective yet simple and straightforward.
Finally, a picture is worth a thousand words, so viewing the Scrybe video is a treat.
For example, check the Scrybe calendar. It looks familiar, but a simple click reveals more information than most dedicated calendars display.
Details unfold as you click, giving you visual cues that are instantly understood.
Drag and drop? Yes, of course—right inside your browser window. Scheduling? Yes, in ways that make sense but you’ve never seen.
Lists? Certainly. Reminders? Duh. Capture and hold information from everywhere? Scrybe’s ThoughtDad captures more than thoughts. Text, images, links, ideas, and more.
Synchronization? Ah ha. We’re back to paper again, more or less. Long live paper, the perfect compliment to PDAs, Franklin Planners, and cell phones.
Sharing and collaboration? Well, I need to save something for the video.
That’s where it begins. The Scrybe video demo only gives you a preview of what promises to be the coolest new utility, Mac or Windows—whenever it becomes available. If it becomes available.
Scrybe is becoming a candidate for the Top 10 Vaporware List of 2006, 2007, to infinity and beyond. So far, all that’s there is video and we know how reliable that can be. Beta accounts are being handed out sparingly.
Still, assume Scrybe is as cool as it looks, it might be the watershed event for moving utilities and applications off the desktop and into the browser.
Again. The only problem is that you can’t buy Scrybe. Yet. You can’t even take it for a beta test drive. Yet.
Check out the details at Scrybe’s website, and let us know what you think.
Fact or fiction? Browserware or vaporware? So far, it’s just another ultra cool demo of what we’d like to do on our Macs and PCs.
