Centrallo, first word that intuitively comes to mind is central and that is the best way to describe this app; Centralizing your life. There are other apps out there like Evernote, Dropbox, and even Google Drive. All these apps aim at having a cloud platform where information can be stored and accessed and then modified, but that means having to use all three apps to get all the unique functions. Well that's where Centrallo comes in, the app that takes the best of the 3 and combines it into an easily navigable interface.
Before I get started I do want to layout that I'm not doing a side by side comparison of Centrallo to Dropbox, Evernote, etc. Each of these apps are different in their own universe so comparing them is like comparing apples to oranges as it were.
At a glance Centrallo has a very clean user interface. All the options are on the left and easily within view. In addition the speed isn't bad, it a very quick to load and doesn't seem to be bogged down when going from one tab to another. Another mention about the interface is that you have a choice between a black a white background; although a minor detail it's nice to have a preference as it's much easier for me to read on a black background. going back to usability, as I mentioned before, it looks very intuitive. the way that the interface it laid out makes for a very easy learning curve.
Moving on to some of the other features we have the ability to create lists. This is different in that these lists are infinite in how many you can make and store within each other. To illustrate that I've created a list which also contains a list and that list also has a list (listception). The great part of these feature is how easy it is to make these lists and prioritize them. Simple click on the C+, name it, and you're done. To put another list inside of it you simply drag one list into another and voila list in a list.
Lastly is the prioritization, if you worried about misplacing an item and not being bale to find it, well simply flag it as important (the icon marked "!!!" and go to the priority tab (also marked "!!!") to find it.
There are other features included in Centrallo, but these items are similar across other platforms so I chose to highlight the key features that make Centrallo stand out.
Here are my final thoughts:
Pros: It's has a quick learning curve and the functions are intuitive. The design is simplistic and allows for the easy learning curve. It runs very smoothly and I can't stress how much I like that the toolbar on the left is always visible. It makes navigation that much faster and simpler.
Cons: One "con" might be that I was hoping to to use this item as a browser based system. A stand alone program would be great. Who's to say that won't be added in later, only time will tell. Not a con, but more so a suggestion would be that having a dedicated image gallery would be great for image storage and thus eliminating the need to use drop box. I mean even adding in a storage area for documents would be amazing as well.
There were a few other items that I didn't see, but they wouldn't be cons as this app is in its early stages.
Final Thought(s): I think that if you looking for an app to help keep you organized with a clean look and quick learning curve then Centrallo is great. It's free and is available on iOS and Android so there's no seclusion. I can't wait to see what else they add into Centrallo!
