It’s nice that most of our digital stuff right now like photos, videos, and documents already live in the cloud. I’m not talking about Heaven because I’m not sure if digital files have souls. I’m talking about the digital cloud that you can access from anywhere as long as there is an Internet connection. The problem with this current setup is that our stuff lives in different clouds. There’s Google Documents, Flickr, YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, and an endless array of web apps and services. It’s convenient but not convenient enough. Until you meet Jolicloud Me.
Your Personal Cloud
Jolicloud Me lets you collect all of the stuff that you have posted on a range of services including Facebook, Twitter, Flickr, and Picasa (with more services to come) in a single online space. It pulls all the things you uploaded and all the links you’ve posted into a single dashboard where you can access them without jumping around multiple services.
The obvious benefit of Jolicloud Me is that it’s easy to bring all of your stuff together. Just log in, choose the service you want to connect to, and Jolicloud Me does the rest.Having everything you posted on your multiple online accounts in one place makes it easy for you to access them whenever and wherever you want.
Possibly the best feature of Jolicloud Me is its search feature. It indexes everything that it has collected from your accounts and it basically gives you your very own personal search engine for your digital things, which is pretty convenient if you have a considerable amount of stuff online.
You can even organize your photos, videos, and documents into collections. On top of that, you can share these collections and see other people’s collections as well. Think of it as Pinterest on steroids.
If the name sounds familiar, Jolicloud Me is actually from the same people who brought us Joli OS. This cloud service comes pre-installed in Joli OS so if you’re on that platform, you will most likely get acquainted with Jolicloud Me soon enough.
Of course, it’s not limited to Joli OS devices. Jolicloud Me can also be accessed via desktop and laptop computers, iOS devices, and Android devices. Support for this range of devices means you will have maximum accessibility no matter what device you are currently using and from wherever you are currently located.
Jolicloud Me is pretty new and it is actually still in beta phase so we still can’t say if it can really be useful to have your own personal search engine for your stuff in your very own cloud. However, from the looks of things, it will be very convenient for people who are fairly active in posting stuff online and who want to keep everything organized in one accessible place.
The Bottom Line
With support for more services like Dropbox, Evernote, Tumblr, YouTube, Spotify, and other services coming soon, and with an intuitive interface, Jolicloud Me looks like it is going to be the most efficient personal cloud service around. The real question is would there be enough people out there who would be interested in curating their own content into searchable collections?
