We're afoot with an information overload. New sources and mediums are emerging and each specialist is finding his way through everything being published online. But we're lacking the tools to quickly select the best we find on the web, organize and share it.
With Bundlr you can select the most relevant content about your favorite topics, be it photos, videos, tweets, presentations or articles.
Research for a work assignment, pick your favorite music videos, cover real-time breaking news or wrap up an event are just some examples of things you can do.
With Bundlr you can create bundles with any kind of content: articles, photos, videos, tweets, quotes and links. Real-time breaking news from your sources, event wrap ups with a collection of online feedback, a selection of the most relevant content on your area of expertise.
Using “Bundle This!”, Bundlrʼs browser button, you can clip content while you browse the Internet. Just press the button to save the content you want, and the meta-data around it, to the bundle you pick. Each bundle has its own public webpage you can share freely (through its link or on social networks) or even embed on any website.
The founders met on the University of Coimbra, where both were taking the Computer Science degree. The idea behind Bundlr came to them when they were helping hosting a conference, and couldn't find an easy tool to gather and share the photos, videos and feedback that was being published online by the attendees.
The concept was first presented in June 2010, at the Kickstart 2H10 workshop hosted by the SeedCapital venture capital firm, who later became a company investor.
In February 2011, Bundlrʼs private beta, invitation-only, was released. It had the most basic features: clipping, bundle pages and sharing. Bundlr was opened to everyone on June 2011, during a foundersʼ trip to USA. Some additional features were also released then: notes, bundle embeds and collaboration. In January 2012, Bundlr launched the Premium plan, offering new features such as private bundles and bundle statistics.
