Jolicloud offers 'social indexing' for links, likes on iOS

Creates searchable library of content

Jolicloud, described as a "social organizing tool," is now available as a free app for the iPhone and iPod Touch. The service offers to index everything a user has created, linked to, liked or received on several of the top social networks, including Facebook, Twitter, Picasa, Flickr, Instagram and other services. The indexing in effect creates a personal library that is more easily searchable and centrally located than attempting to track down a URL users might have linked to in the past.

The library created by Jolicloud can contain photos, videos, music, document and other types of links, and shows the content wherever still available. Users can use the library to create "collections," similar in nature to Pinterest, of content sorted by their own criteria. Jolicloud is itself social, so collections and libraries can be shared to Facebook friends and vice-versa.

Jolicloud began life as a OS aimed at netbooks before re-inventing itself as a meta-cloud, multi-social indexing program that offers a centralized, searchable feed of everything a user has posted or received on various networks. Last month, the company rolled out an HTML5-based web version of the app as an invite-only beta.

The iOS version available now will be followed by an Android version later in the year.
