With the shift to the cloud, our workflows have become dispersed as we work on our various projects and tasks across multiple apps. When those same tools also happen to be collaborative and social, it can be even more burdensome as we attempt to keep up with the constant stream of conversation and updates. If only we had access to single dashboard to manage and view all of these activities in one place.
Such is the goal of German-based started Hojoki, a mobile and web-based application which describes itself as a Facebook-style newsfeed for all of your popular productivity apps like Google Drive, Dropbox, Yammer and Evernote. In addition to the real-time updates, the service offers a daily and weekly summary of activities, a feature that would be likely prove useful when away from your work for an extended time. The conversational aspect of the platform enables users to easily comment on the workflow, with privacy options that range from public to one-on-one, and a collaborative option allows users to set up virtual workspaces where they can choose the members and apps from which to receive updates.
And what’s even better, is that while the service is in beta, it’s all free.
