What can you use the app for?

Scoops.co is a personal web curation service that helps users find content they are interested in. The user shares personal interests as well as their favorite websites. This information can be updated at any time so the user can make adjustments or additions. The application constantly gathers content from blogs, websites, news stories and social networks. Gathered content is analyzed and relevant items are extracted and categorized. The user receives all content they are connected to neatly organized in one place. Items are listed in order of relevancy based on the user’s interests. Content is compiled as a “Notif.” Scoops.co also shares content that the user isn’t following but may find interesting as a recommendation.

What is the history and popularity of the app?

Scoops.co was designed to improve the way internet users’ access content. The application focuses on getting “the right content to the right people.” Users can find a simple yet effective way to refine their daily web browsing and cut down on the time it takes to review the newest content and updates on blogs, sites and other online resources. So far Scoops.co hasn’t made a noticeable impression and has gone largely unnoticed by reviewers and users. The site has potential, but it is also a service that isn’t entirely new to the internet.

What are the differences to other apps?

Scoops.co offers users a simple way to access web content they like, but it doesn’t really present anything new to internet users. The idea of curating content has been around for a while. Other applications are available that do the same thing. The main difference lies in the interface and general user experience offered by the application. Scoops.co also takes things a small step further by sorting content based on relevancy and topic.

How does the web app look and feel to use?

Scoops.co has a nice, modern feel to it that adds depth to the experience. Even though Scoops.co doesn’t offer an entirely original service, it stands out in the area of user interface. A light textured background gives the user plenty of space to stretch out as they search for their favorite topics and websites. Subtle rainbow shadows enhance the look of the site, adding a hint of color right where it is needed. The clutter-free design is extremely easy to master and gives the user a number of options when searching for and browsing content.

How does the registration process work?

New users can try Scoops.co by scrolling down to the registration form along the right side of the homepage. The form asks for a first and last name, email address and password. After checking the terms of use agreement box at the bottom of the form, the user can submit their information to automatically access their new Scoops.co account. The application asks the user for interests but does not require email verification.

What does it cost to use the application?

Scoops.co is available to all users at no cost. There are no subscription fees and the user doesn’t have to pay anything to update their interests. This is a good thing because the service is much like other web content curators, which are often available for free. Charging a fee would only deter users from trying Scoops.co. The features and service the user receives is well worth the few minutes it takes to register.

Who would you recommend the application to?

Scoops.co is a great resource for anyone who uses the internet to browse for news stories and topics of interest. Users can cut down on browsing time each day by letting Scoops.co prepare a list of content and articles that is relevant to the user’s interests. The application even provides recommendations to help the user stay on top of new developments and stories that may not fall into the realm of their current online stomping grounds.
