Archify – Everything In Its Place


Archify is a powerful archiving tool that gives its users a way to save everything — and we mean everything — in one centralized spot. From Internet browsing histories to social networking status updates to email messages, Archify captures all types of digital content and organized it into a searchable format.

Once you add the Archify plugin on your Internet browser, the web-app will begin working behind the scenes to archive everything you do on the web. The articles you read will be stored alongside the movies that you watched and tweets you sent out. Archify takes a screenshot of every page that appears on your Internet browser, and archives those images using private folders in your Gmail account. Or, if you prefer not to integrate Archify into your email client, you can still go through your archives using the search page that Archify provides.

The next time you’re having trouble remembering a restaurant that was mentioned in a newspaper review you read, or finding the receipt for a purchase you recently made online, head to your Archify search page and type in any keywords that may have been mentioned on the pages you’re looking for. You can also filter your results by time, which is useful when you know the general date when you viewed the content you’re trying to find.

Practical Uses:

  • Find a video that you remember watching last month on Facebook
  • Send your mom an article on crafting that you read last week
  • Discover the name of the travel agent you were meaning to contact
  • Get help remembering where you read about a new restaurant you’re dying to try

Insider Tips:

  • Archify doesn’t record HTTPS or private browsing sessions
  • Archives are searchable by keyword
  • Users can filter their archive search results by time
  • Archify sorts pages based on how long users spend on them

What we liked:

  • People can see where they spend the majority of their time online
  • Archify takes screenshots of the pages you were viewing, in case those pages change before you have a chance to return
  • Facebook and Twitter messages are easily archived
  • Archify’s plugin runs in the background, so no effort is needed to save pages on the user’s behalf

What we didn’t like:

  • Some people might not feel comfortable having their browsing history tracked
