Everyone at Hojoki is totally excited today. We’ve been a little silent during the last weeks and the reason for this is that we’ve been extremely focussed on getting something great done! We’ve been building the new Hojoki for you. By using everything we’ve learnt from one year of public beta, we’re able to bring you the most important feature requests.
The all new look
As of today you will discover that the home base for your favourite productivity apps has a new look. Our relaunch includes not only a sophisticated makeover, but also many new features that have been frequently requested. We implemented the redesign with a better, more grown up Hojoki in mind, providing an even smoother platform to keep all of the newly integrated apps organized and easily accessible.
Without further delay, here’s how Hojoki now looks:
Send comments to your apps
And now what you have all been waiting for, Hojoki now makes commenting and discussion possible across all of your apps. You can post in all of your apps from one place and conversations are sent back to the source. This has been one the most requested features. You can now discuss all the activities in all your connected apps from one place and have the discussions synced back to the apps.
Comment on Dropbox and Evernote updates
To top it off, you can even comment on updates from apps like Dropbox and Evernote which do not already have this capability. Hojoki takes care of sending the comment in that case, notifying the recipients via email. If the recipients are not on Hojoki, they can still respond without having to set up an account. There’s no need to tire yourself out by running around to keep up with everything that’s happening in your tools, Hojoki does that for you!
Separate app feeds
With the apps you choose to integrate in Hojoki now located neatly on the left side of the discussion feed, all of your sources are quickly available with a simple click. When you select Google Drive for example, the feed will only provide the news related to that single app.
Additionally, you have the option to open the application by clicking on the “Launch app…” button in the upper right hand corner and the app will instantly appear in a new tab.
So there you have it. A wiser, more mature Hojoki. Now your apps are not just integrated as one, so is your hub for discussion around it, giving you the opportunity to filter your feed the way you want it and collaborate with every app.
As a summary, you’ll see a full walk-through of the new Hojoki and its features in the following screencast:
