Pearltrees is a powerful application that allows people to browse and organize web content visually. This “crowed sourced library”, started on the desktop web in 2009, became mobile in 2011 with the launch of the iPad application soon followed by the iPhone version in 2012. Pearltrees counts now over 2 million monthly active users who have collected 50 million pearls, the iPad and iPhone apps are consistently rated 5 stars and have been downloaded more than a million times.
Today, Android users will be able to access Pearltrees from the Google Play store, the application is free and there are currently three discounted Premium versions that offer privacy settings with 1 GB storage for $1.99 per month, with high priority support and 3 GB storage for $3.99 per month.The high-end version, currently priced at $9.99, in addition to the privacy control and high priority support, offers 10 GB storage, customization features, backup and encryption. See the image at the end of the article for a detailed list of benefits for each discounted price.
In all versions, web pages are collected as pearls and made part of pearl trees. Each pearl tree represents a topic, it basically acts as a folder – with a nicer design. Since the iPad version, thanks to the Visual Discovery feature, users are able to explore the interest graph of the Pearltrees’ community by simply moving around the screen, new pearls will appear with content related to the closest pearl that was previously displayed.
The unique feature available in Pearltrees for Android is the ability to navigate and move information between applications, so you can store the content you have collected in Pealrtrees in other applications such as Evernote for example.
