Bookmarking Application TidyFavorites Pro - Design
(Page 2 of 4 )
As mentioned previously, TidyFavorites is free to download, though there is a pro version available for $19.99. Only slight differences are acquired when upgrading to the pro version, such as four different skins and yearlong updates, among others. Whether users choose the free or pro version, the design remains the same. The program combines four design concepts: thumbnails, organized into tabs or folders or both, drop stacks and centralized bookmarking across browsers, all of which combine to make the saving of URLs more practical as well as easier to navigate and locate.
The thumbnail design feature incorporated into TidyFavorites allows a bookmark to be added as a visible thumbnail of the chosen website, making it much more intuitive to work with -- not to mention more pleasant -- than the standard text link. Thumbnails can also be resized manually at will and placed in the location that makes sense to the user.
The ability to organize saved URLs into tabs or a folder (or both, even) is yet another incredibly helpful design element the makers of TidyFavorites chose to include. Essentially, the software provides a customizable workspace that can accommodate both tabs and folders, in effect providing a 3D-like organizational structure where each tab can contain its own set of folders. Users will surely find this type of design much more flexible and appealing than the default 2D hierarchical structure that most browsers usually use.
As already mentioned, TidyFavorites' design is very clean and modern-looking, with much of that credit going to the software's drop stack design feature. The "stack" is an area to the right of the screen where URLs first appear in thumbnail form when bookmarked. Users can either drag and drop their new thumbnails into the proper tab or folder, or they can simply use the drop stack as a temporary area for web pages which they want to examine, perhaps at a later date, but don't feel that it's necessary to add the link to their permanent bookmark collection. This feature would work well for newspaper articles users don't have time to read at the moment, or for possible items they'd like to purchase after doing a price check with other vendors. In other words, pages they are interested in checking out later, but not sites they want to be able to regularly check and stay updated on.
Last but not least, TidyFavorites' ability to centralize bookmarks across browsers is yet another of the software's handy design features. As previously mentioned, TidyFavorites works interchangeably with both Internet Explorer and Firefox and thankfully, its designers had the smarts and foresight to realize that many users have both of those incredibly popular browsers on the same computer. Never again will users have to switch back and forth between browsers, frantically trying to figure out which one contains an important bookmarked URL. If users use both browsers, their URLs that are saved in one browser will also instantly appear on the other.
