Gone are the days when the only source of news was the morning paper. Information comes in from every direction now, and Bundlr is a tool that people can use to keep everything straight. Whether a person is gathering information for a presentation, a research report, or an investigative article, the reality is that information can come from all different types of sources. Bundlr has created a way for individual users to gather online articles, photos, videos, and tweets and share this content with others in a way that makes sense and is easy to view.
Create your first bundle by signing into Bundlr with a Facebook or Twitter account. Once you’ve authorized the app and dragged the Bundlr bookmarklet to your browser toolbar, you can get started gathering content about whatever topic it is that interests you. Let’s say you’re publishing a report on a recent protest in your town. You’ll want to gather stories from your local newspaper and neighborhood blogs, of course. But you’ll be missing a large part of the story if you don’t also seek out information from social media sources at the same time. Bundlr makes it easy to curate social media messages, videos, and photos. It even supports a number of the most popular photo, video, and news services so you can gather content without having to fuss over embed codes and HTML. When all the information and content you’ve put together is ready, you can grab the embed code and publish it anywhere you like.
Although Bundlr is not the only curation and aggregation tool of its kind on the market right now, it does offer an interface that is extremely user friendly. It also offers integration with more media services than its competitors. Bundlr is a tool that expands far beyond the journalism professional. Teachers, students, and business professionals can all find their own unique ways to get use out of this interesting app.
