A couple years ago a friend of mine lost her house to a fire. Thankfully, no one was home at the time, however they lost ALL of their belongings.
Family photos, keepsakes, treasures. Gone.
Once the initial devastation passed, the family was tasked with trying to create a list of all the items in the house for insurance purposes. Now, they had made a list itemizing most of their belongings for insurance purposes but had never given it to their agent and since it was in a folder in the house, it literally went up in smoke.
If only they could have had all that information stored online they could have had access to it anytime, from anywhere. That’s where About One can help.
About One is an online organizer of sorts.
Here’s a fun video of what About One is and what it can do.
Really quick let me tell you what I like about it.
For me, I love the fact that you get 2GB worth of storage for free. Eventually there will be expanded paid versions that will be no more than $10/month so if you have a plethora of information to store you’ll be good to go.
Another neat feature is the ability to keep a scrapbook of sorts of your life. You can write a little note and then add a picture or even a document. You also can note which family or contacts were involved so you never forget. Personally, I think it would be a great way to keep track of all that artwork kids make throughout the year. All you have to do is scan the artwork, create a life event with a brief description and then upload the document from your computer. Easy peasy!
Very soon they will be releasing their calendar feature as well as their iPhone and Android phone app, (currently the app is only available for Microsoft phones.) I’m excited to see how all the features work together and if there is the possibility that About One become my replacement for Google Calendar as a family organizer.
Take a look and tell me what you think. I love getting new prospectives from fresh eyes. 🙂
