Today’s Killer Startup: Qwote
Qwote helps you send personalized links that direct your friends and readers to the specific part of the webpage you want to share. It also keep a library of all of your qwotes, making great content easy to find again.
Why It’s A Killer Startup
I’m the queen of copy/paste. As a blogger, I spend an inordinate amount of time reading articles online and the ones I love the most inevitably have a quote or two that really stand out from the page. I’ll go through the whole copy/paste process to highlight how great a piece is when I share it with friends or post it on social media.
With Qwote, that whole process is reduced down to highlighting the section you like and then clicking on the Qwote button, similar to pinning something on Pinterest or adding to your Buffer queue. Also similar to those services, you can choose to share text, images, or video with your Qwote button. You’re the presented with a unique link that includes your Qwote user name, reassuring your readers that it’s a legit link, even though it’s masked.
Qwote isn’t just for sharing great content, however. The in-app clipboard also saves all of your quotes, which is great for anyone who has found themselves telling someone about a great piece they read recently, only to realize that they can’t remember the name of the author, the title of the article, or even the publication it appeared in. Personally, this happens to me constantly but from now on I’m just going to Qwote everything so that I have my own private library of awesomeness.
Currently in private beta, any prolific sharers can sign up for notification when the app is ready on the Qwote homepage.
