If you do not know what Bublup is; then, you need to check it out. Bublup is now my go to packrat storage area for my browser bookmarks, notes, images, files or links I find on the web; a great tool for when doing research; and, it looks great and performs flawlessly from all my computing platforms (Windows, Android, Chrome OS). One cool feature of Bublup is the browser extension that makes it easy to capture images, links, text, etc… from your browser bar or from their floating “nanobar”. Bublup is one of those apps that excites me as a software and app reviewer here at “Tech News for You”.
If you sign up for a FREE account, you will bet 3 GB of storage space which for someone like me, is ample space; BUT, as an added bonus for every person you refer to Bublup, you get an additional 1 GB of storage (up to 12 GB). Once you sign up for Bublup you can find your referral link under the “My Info > Rewards and Referrals”.

If you are like me, you save a lot of internet based information. The problem is that you can get “discombobulated” and forget where you saved this information that results in that feeling of being disorganized. Recently, I came across a web based app called “Bublup” that works across multiple platforms (web, android, ios) that gives you the ability to keep links in the same folders as PDFs, photos, videos, GIFs, notes, and other files. In other words, you can visually organize anything with one application. Add the browser extension and you can rocket anything you save to Bublup. Here at “Tech News for You” I have been testing this application and have come to the conclusion that “Bublup” may just end up being the app of the year.
I recently posted on Bublup and thought I would do a shout out again. This app on the web and your phone is probably one of the best I have come across when it comes to saving (and sharing) your stuff. What I mean by “stuff” is that you can keep links in the same folders as PDFs, photos, videos, GIFs, notes, and other files. It all visually looks good together, whether you’re collecting recipes or funny memes, planning a trip with friends, or doing a work project.
You can get Bublup for FREE (with 3 GB of storage) or you can buy into their other storage options that are reasonably priced. You can get additional storage, up to 12GB, by referring others.
I have been in a mode looking at web apps (with mobile sharing support) that will allow me to create collections of things (from the web). For example, I visit Amazon a lot looking for tech products, and often focus on specific items. As a result, I needed a means to collect what I am specifically looking for into specific collections, categories or titles. There are many applications out there to do this, BUT it dawned on me there is one app that can do this easily (with its’ excellent web browser extension and mobile app support) and it is Flipboard.
Flipboard has been around awhile and is probably one of the most attractive, and most popular applications out there. It is typically used by people as a news app where the news topics are created into a magazine like interface. As a matter of fact, each news topic is created in a magazine (or category) of its’ own that you can add to. The one feature that dawned on me is that you can create your own magazines (or topics or categories). For example, I was looking for hiking boots. I created a magazine called hiking boots and when I came across something of interest (using the Flipboard browser extension) I would add that interest to the hiking boots magazine (or category). I can add my own description or note and even share the magazine publicly (or just keep it private). What is really cool about this is that once you do this, the end result of your findings is presented in a really beautiful type of interface, like what you would actually see in a magazine. The biggest problem I ran into, after saving stuff to Flipboard, was finding where Flipboard was saving “my stuff” or my magazines. To get to “your stuff”, look under your profile where “your stuff” or magazines are presented in a very nice interface.
In summary, with Flipboard you can:
- Read stories from the best publishers – Find your favorite publishers like the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, Reuters, the Washington Post, Axios, Vanity Fair, Rolling Stone and thousands more.
- Curate your perspective – Collect stories around specific themes and add them to personal magazines
- Stay informed – Keep up with the latest news with breaking news alerts and go in depth into the issues that matter to you
- Dive deep into your passions – Discover personalized stories that interest you

This is something you may really like that I happened across while browsing the web for new blog content. What I came across is a web based app called ‘Cling‘ that allows you to add and collect “to dos”, “notes”, bookmark files” and “photos”…. Appears that ‘Cling’ is not available on any of the mobile platforms yet, but the site indicated it is coming soon. The first thing I did was import my browser bookmarks to ‘Cling’ to give me an opportunity to play around with it. On my phone, using my web browser, ‘Cling’ worked flawlessly and appeared quite nice; however, I will be looking forward to the Android app of ‘Cling’ when it comes out. Currently there is a Google Chrome extension that you can use to collect what you find to ‘Cling’ on your desktop computer or Chromebook.
In brief, you start with a board where you can add content such as “to dos”, “notes”, bookmark files” and “photos”. In the FREE version of ‘Cling’ you are entitled to 10 boards, 1 GB of storage, 1000 notes, links, files and to-dos… in addition to the search, bookmark-import & sharing features… The FREE version is ad-free…

Upload a photo to “Trace” and watch the magic happen. “Trace” will remove everything in a photo, except the main object. For example, photo one below is a photo with background that shows a skunk. After uploading to “Trace”, the skunk is now a skunk (with a transparent background) that can be singly used for other graphic creations. Here at “What’s On My PC” I have put “Trace” through its’ paces and it is awesome. The key is to use photos where there is a main object in the photo. I have had fun with “Trace” where I use “Google Drawings” as my graphic editor to merge my creations.
