Thank you to all who have downloaded pageQlip or have taken a look at what we are trying to do to help you make your information useful!  If you haven’t had a chance to check it out, please click here for the pageQlip iTunes link.

It has been an interesting journey getting to this point, and we have met some incredible entrepreneurs, developers, and many supporters who have helped us focus on getting pageQlip into the hands of people who want to be able to use their information.

While we were building pageQlip and talking to future users and customers, we were asked why we were even building a product when there were other read later or save later apps in the marketplace.  It was simple; we wanted something more than just a read later app.

Using pageQlip is a century old concept built within new mobile technology.  How many of you have found yourselves in a store trying to remember what exactly the gift you wanted was, or needed to review your financial documents in light of a news article you recently discovered yet lost as a link in hundreds of e-mails?  Using pageQlip is like clipping that ad or article from a newspaper or magazine, to have with you when you need it most.  pageQlip gives you the ability to add personal context to the content you discover.

We aren’t a typical team of developers paired up fresh out of school,  we are experienced professionals with a range of interests and responsibilities who needed something like pageQlip to help make our lives better through technology and context – personal context – and not one pushed to us through a less determinate technology.  We want to be able to use the information we have already discovered and engage with it on our terms and at our convenience.

With version 1 we have kept the product to its more basic level, but believe there is a lot more we can do. We will soon be reaching out to our first users to find out about their experiences with pageQlip and learn what we can do to improve the product.  Please don’t hesitate to contact us via email with any feedback.

We hope you enjoy pageQlip and look forward to hearing from you and how you like to use your information!
