Techvibes is a media sponsor of the upcoming GROW Conference in Vancouver and will be highlighting the 15 Canadian startups that are selected to showcase at the conference's opening reception at Launch @ GROW on August 17th.
Toronto's Rocketr is one of the fifteen startups that has been selected and may be one of four chosen to pitch live on stage at the GROW Conference on August 18th.
Rocketr allows users to create cloud-based notebooks that can be shared privately or with an unlimited number of users. Users can generate their own content that can be easily accessed and shared with others while still managing content from other people's notebooks.
After signing up at the Rocketr website, or downloading the new iPhone app, users can create quick and easy notes that they can categorize into both private and public notebooks. With the free accounts offered by Rocketr, users can create up to 3 private notebooks and an unlimited number of public notebooks. Any number of editors can be invited to share, comment, or contribute to private notebooks and anybody can access, follow, share, or "star" their favourite notes from public notebooks.
Rocketr is a simple and free cloud-based service that will automatically sync from any piece of hardware that can connect to the Internet. Notes can be emailed directly from the app or tweeted once synced with a Twitter account. Notes can also be created by sending emails from an address associated with your account to firstname.lastname@example.org or tweeted with the tag #rkt. So, even if you don't have an iPhone to run the iPhone app, any smartphone will be able to integrate with this service.
Rocketr was founded by Andrew Peek and launched their social note-taking platform in April 2011.
