Moxtra - App Review



In the words of the developer: "Our real world revolves around our interests, and the people with whom we share our interests. We have parties to plan, memories to share, kitchen to remodel and yes, in a few months we will have taxes to file.

At Moxtra, we set out to create a solution that lets people view the world their way, and not defined by the solution they use".

You might also think of Moxtra as a filing cabinet where you can place all sorts of documents (including pictures and audio), into individual files (but not as limiting as paper ones). These binders (to use the Moxtra terminology) you can then either keep to yourself, share with others on a 'see only' basis, or allow selected others to edit the contents of your binder(s).

Now for the ACIDS test:

Aesthetics
The first thing you need to do is sign up via moxtra.com, or use your Facebook account.

You are now greeted by a series of folders (with the appearance of books), which consist of a default, a quick start guide, three samples and a virgin binder. You are now ready to chuck things in... and part of the beauty of this system is that you can do exactly that because 'pages' are easy to reorganise.

So you start by creating and naming a new binder, and then add:

Page
This can be either a sketch, (with many writing implements, arrows and the availability to add other elements), or notes, where the emphasis is on text.

Camera (self-explanatory)

Pictures or Video
These are separate choices; you need to let the App have access to your photos/videos in your privacy settings for these to function.

Browser
Just enter the url and then snap an area or the whole page to your page.

Desktop
This is extremely helpful. This enables you to install Moxtra Desktop on your PC or Mac and make them remotely accessible.

More
Perhaps (almost) the most powerful option of all. This enables you to access documents in Dropbox, Evernote, Google Drive and Box. Now all these documents are also available to you.

Once you have the desired content on your various (individual) pages, Moxtra allows you further editing, including the extremely important facility to, very easily, change the order of the pages.

Video

Cost
The App is Free.

Indispensability
If you're looking for somewhere to keep disparate items, be able to edit and reorder them (unlike a book), this is a great App.

Dependability
Apart from the App occasionally quitting unexpectedly (without loss of data), everything works perfectly.

Security
You can log in with Facebook which would give Moxtra access to your public profile, friend list and email address.

ACIDS Test Rating:

Like a clippings book but much more versatile.
