The Holiday Season is fast approaching- we thought we’d mention something to keep in mind as you connect up with your family and friends over the next couple of months. We’d also like to tell you about one of the many exciting features we will be implementing before our official commercial launch, and point out some recent improvements.
As you get together with your families over the holidays, try to pay attention to the physical things around you and be sure to ask questions! That serving platter your aunt uses every year, what’s the story behind it? Where did it come from? Is it a family heirloom? These are the stories that are easily lost- the aunt passes away and the platter is donated to the thrift shop- no one realizes it was the only thing that your great-grandmother was able to salvage when her home was destroyed in the big flood of ‘07. Capture and preserve the stories of those things- CatalogIt! Read a bit more on our blog...
Many of you have been asking for the ability to publish Entries to the web. We’re happy to tell you that you’ll soon be able to easily accomplish this! We also recognize that this is the last thing some of you would want to do. Nothing will be shared by default and without you explicitly enabling this feature. When publishing to the web is complete, you’ll be able to share Entries, folders, or your entire collection online and control exactly the information you wish to publish. We also have lots of other enhancements on the near horizon including better support for tags and some image editing features.
CatalogIt is an evolving product- you may notice subtle changes regularly; others are more “behind the scenes.” We’ve heard from some of you that uploading images from your smartphone or tablet can be difficult when you have a weak internet connection. In response, we’ve made quite a few enhancements to the way that images are uploaded.
This month we’d like to congratulate Dr. Bob LaPerriere and the folks at the Museum of Medical History of the Sierra Sacramento Valley Medical Society on the recently completed extensive renovation and expansion of the museum. This is a great museum with a fascinating collection relating to the history of medicine from the mid-1800s to the present, focusing particularly on people, places, and events of the area, so pivotal to much of California’s history. It is well worth a visit when you are in the Sacramento area!
We need your reviews! Please give us a review on the App Store and like us on Facebook. We’d like others to know that CatalogIt is in use and has many happy users. If you like what we’re building, help us spread the word!
On a final note, we are happy to announce that after proceeding through the extensive US Patent and Trademark process, we now officially have trademarks on our iconic basketweave logo as well as for our name, CatalogIt.
We thank you all for your continued support,
The CatalogIt Team
