Quickly could make your inbox zero dream a reality

A seemingly endless stream of email is becoming the norm for most of us. Often times, items go unopened because we simply do not have time to address every item. “Inbox zero” seems like a pretty lofty goal, but that is no reason to give up completely on organizing your inbox. Many programs automatically sort, color code, or produce to-do lists based on your email, but a new platform is taking a new approach that has the potential to reduce the amount of time you spend cruising your inbox.

Quickly is a new platform aimed at supercharging your inbox. It takes a look through your email and makes suggestions based what it finds and will begin to learn more about how you use your email. After installing Quickly, it will ask you to approve or deny a suggestion. Every time you approve an action, Quickly performs it, but it also learns how you want to handle similar emails, allowing you to streamline future actions. For example, if you frequently receive emails with attachments, and Quickly finds that you typically save them to Dropbox; the next email you receive with an attachment Quickly will suggest you save it to Dropbox. If you approve this suggestion, you will be able to select any folder in Dropbox from a dropdown menu within your email. Once you have synced Quickly with all of the programs you frequently use, you will not have to leave your email to save anything.

Each suggestion will appear at the top of your email message. So, if you have an attachment, you will see a Quickly button with the Dropbox logo, waiting for your approval. Each suggestion is based on email content, receiver information, and your email’s structure. By connecting your programs, it allows you to immediately facilitate action based on your email content. It eliminate procrastination because you can do common tasks in one click, based on Quickly’s autosuggestions, rather than spend time saving attachments to appropriate folders, looking for a contact, or syncing things to Dropbox.

Getting s**t done from your email inbox

If a single email needs you to do several things, like store an invoice, add a row to a spreadsheet, and reply to the email stating it has been completing; all of these things can be done with a single click in Quickly. Once Quickly learns how you use your email, multiple suggestions will appear atop an email. For instance, you may see a Dropbox, Google Drive, and Facebook suggestion all on one email, based on what Quickly thinks you will need. The site does say it can take a little while for Quickly to learn what you like, but once it learns how you use your email to interact with people, this has the potential to save a tremendous amount of time.

Quickly is compatible with Asana, Gmail, MailChimp, Google Drive, Evernote, WordPress, Stripe, Salesforce, Zoho, LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter, Calendar apps, as well as the available Chrome plugin for Gmail. There are many more programs expected to join the list when Quickly launches. As more programs join, this could be the go-to tool for email management, as you can take multiple action on the same email within the same screen.

Jenzy helps perfectly measure your kids’ feet

(TECH NEWS) Jenzy is a mobile app currently in beta that helps you perfectly measure your kids feet and buy shoes without having to leave your home.




Parents rejoice, there’s now a mobile app that sizes your child’s feet to determine their correct shoe size. No more carpet charts that every kid has put their dirty little socked foot on, or those weird metal sizing instruments.

With Jenzy, you just take a picture of your child’s foot, and the app calculates the measurements. It then generates personalized size and style recommendations, which you can order directly from the app.

Jenzy partners with podiatrist recommended brands designed for active kids, including pediped, Robeez, and Morgan & Milo. However, you don’t have to purchase their suggestions to receive the sizing info.

Incorrectly sized shoes are a literal pain for everyone, but this especially affects children, who don’t have purchasing power.

Additionally, shoes that don’t fit can have long-term effects on children’s growth and development, and lead to foot problems in the future. Properly fitted shoes are necessary for healthy foot development.

Wearing incorrectly sized shoes is just part of the problem. If shoes aren’t suited for every day use, children’s feet and overall growth can also suffer.

Flip flops, ballet pumps, and shoes with raised heels are not recommended by podiatrists for frequent use, as they can cause discomfort, or even musculoskeletal issues.

According to Dr. Stewart Morrison, a University of Brighton podiatrist, “children’s feet are still growing and are more susceptible to damage than adult feet, so it’s really vital to ensure they are wearing shoes which fit them well – in width as well as length – and that are suitable for age, as well as the task they are wearing them for.”

As online shopping has taken over, fewer parents are getting their children’s feet sized by in-store experts. Of course, there’s also a cost-barrier, as many stores that offer shoe-sizing are often more expensive.

Jenzy hopes to bridge that gap, providing parents both proper shoe sizes and affordable products designed to last.

Right now the app is set to launch in December, but if you don’t want to wait, apply to take part in the beta test on Jenzy’s site.

Time is money and Clockify helps you make the most

(TECH NEWS) Tracking your time worked as a freelancer can easily be lost in the shuffle. A new tool has been designed to make this important aspect easier.




After years of searching for a method that works for me in terms of organization and productivity, the answer seemed to be simple: a calendar I can write on and Post-It notes. This method is a little old school, but seems to get the job done for my organizational needs.

However, there are some things that slip through the cracks with this method, but it’s more user error than it is the actual practice. One thing I struggle with is keeping track of my freelance hours this way.

I have a tendency to guesstimate how much time I worked throughout the day and know that I wind up underdocumenting my hours. I would hate to know how much money I’ve missed out on keeping (sometimes inaccurate) handwritten notes.

But, like many other small scale issues, there is a simple solution. And that is found in the form of time trackers.

One of the newest members to join the online time tracker team is Clockify, who operates under the idea of “your time, your rules.” It is a free time tracking tool designed for agencies and freelancers.

Clockify allows users to manage as many team members, projects, and workspaces that you need in an effort to help your business run smoothly. This allows for a complete overview of team productivity.

The tool offers a way to enter time manually as well as clock time automatically. This way you can keep tabs on what you’re working on and assign and label time logs to the appropriate clients.

With this time tracking, you are able to generate weekly, monthly, and annual reports at any given time. These reports can be saved, exported, and shared with clients to give them more information about your work process.

The real-time tracking helps to improve business efficiency and gives more insight into what each team member is spending their time on. Having this information available can give visual representation of how to improve in the future.

Clockify currently exists in desktop format with iOS and Android apps coming soon.

Russia vetoed cryptocurrency and came back with CryptoRuble

(TECH NEWS) Russia put a hard pass on other cryptocurrencies in their country so that they could hop in the crypto-game with their own CryptoRuble.



cryptoruble russia

Just days after The American Genius reported that the Russian Central Bank would attempt to block access to cryptocurrency trading cites, the Coin Telegraph has reported that the Russian government will issue its very own cryptocurrency, the CryptoRuble.

The report cited local Russian papers, who quoted the minister of communications, Nikolay Nikiforov.

Earlier this week, head of the Central Bank, Sergei Shvetsov, said that he would work with the Prosecutor General’s Office to ban Russian citizens from accessing cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin, calling such currencies a “negative phenomena for our markets” and a “pyramid scheme.”

Now it appears that the Kremlin will create its own cryptocurrency – one it can keep an eye on — which, some might argue, defeats the entire purpose of cryptocurrency.

However, like other cryptocurrencies the CryptoRuble will be based on blockchain and will presumably help prevent online fraud.

CryptoRubles will be exchangeable with regular Rubles, although the systems of exchange have not yet been set up. Experts think that Russia is hoping to stimulate e-commerce without the need for foreign money markets, which will allow them to have more independence from the United States.

According to Nikiforov, the Russian government is setting up its own cryptocurrency under the assumption that if they don’t, other European governments will.

Said NIkiforov, “I confidently declare that we run CryptoRuble for one simple reason: if we do not, then after two months our neighbors in the EurAsEC will.”

Traders using CryptoRubles will be asked to provide documentation of retail transactions and services rendered – or pay a 13 percent tax for undocumented transactions, leaving a wide loophole for money laundering.

Critics say that Russia is trying to facilitate, while also profiting from money laundering; that the Kremlin is stealing the market from other cryptocurrencies; and that the CryptoRuble fundamentally defies the spirit of decentralization that inspired other cryptocurrencies.
