Today in Cool Websites and Tools, we take a look at 5 cool websites, including syncing BitTorrent files, finding new roommates, organizing paper and digital documents, digitizing classic media periodicals, and driving test routes around the UK. Read on below!
BitTorrent Labs – Want to share and sync files on the go? BitTorrent Sync lets you share files with family and friends, share files between mobile devices, and backup your phone and tablets. Sync files between mobile devices, collaborators, or your home and work PC. When you create a new folder secret, a QR code will be generated. Scan and share this QR code to easily sync files between mobile devices.
Live With Us – was built around one simple idea – searching for new roommates should be easy and fun. In most big cities it’s common to get 50+ responses when you post a roomshare ad on Craigslist. Sorting through the applicants, discussing them with your current roommates, deciding who to meet with for an interview – this can be a tedious process.
Fileee – is an intelligent, personal assistant for the automatic organisation of all paper and digital documents in one system. It’s the whole and complete filing cabinet of the future, including personal assistance that recognises the structures and information itself. PDFs, word documents and pictures of documents can easily be dragged and dropped into your browser to be uploaded. Take a picture of your paper document with our smartphone app.
Media History Digital Library – is a non-profit initiative dedicated to digitizing collections of classic media periodicals that belong in the public domain for full public access. The project is supported by owners of materials who loan them for scanning, and donors who contribute funds to cover the cost of scanning. They have currently scanned over 800,000 pages, and the number is growing.
4Wheelz Routemate – will help prospective drivers all around the West Midlands to practice typical and example driving test routes. This nifty tool will help you to encounter similar roads that you might be taken on during your driving test. We have covered the key driving test centres in Birmingham, Wolverhampton and surrounding areas and will be adding more test centres and more routes in the future.
