Using Pearltrees is a unique experience. Here is my own personal Pearltrees collection The great thing now about the service is that they have just released an app for ipad. This is an excellent natural progression because in my opinion Pearltrees is light years ahead and using the mouse to move and navigate, and organize trees is OK, but being able to use a graphical touch screen interface like with the ipad takes it to a whole new level. I imagine great things for Peartrees, especially in the ability for it to create and catalog a vast community of people who have organized and shared extremely valuable content.

WHAT: A web-based and iPad application to organize and curate your social life online. Users collect, or bookmark, web pages, tweets, Google+ posts and more, and arrange them in pearls or pearltrees. A pearl holds anything interesting you find on the web with a URL. A pearltree is a collection of webpages that functions like a folder. On the iPad, you simply organize your pearls by touching and dragging. Pearltrees also features pearl sharing and collaboration with others. Users can write editorials that explain the pearltree’s purpose to effectively attract visitors. Users can also customize your avatar to give your pearltree a unique identity. LAUNCHER: Patrice Lamothe, founder and CEO. Before founding Pearltrees, he worked as product leader at business strategy advisement company Boston Consulting Group. WHY: Everyone consumes content online, but there’s no easy way to curate all your content across several websites and social networks. Pearltrees lets people organize the web their way, democratizing access to content and organization of content. WHEN/WHERE: December 2009/Paris. Launched iPad application October 12.
