We are constantly bombarded with information and when we do find something of interest, organizing it can become a serious chore. I will discover something, whether it’s a website, picture, personal files, but never get the chance to attend to it. Either I am distracted by some other activity, or it just gets lost among the stockpile of other important stuff that comes along. Developers like Google are starting to make attempts to provide a solution to such problems. Google’s Keep app, lets you quickly and easily store stuff you find of interest. Now Microsoft is jumping on the problem with their solution called Cache, now out of beta.
Manage a Variety of Media using Microsoft’s Cache App
Cache is a great place to quickly bookmark the stuff important to you. You can capture text snippets, images, web pages, files, reference material, and your notes. Source
Cache is a cross-platform app you can use to organize and group content into categories. Any content captured is readily available from a Windows 10 device or Apple iPhone. The centralized management of media makes it easy to find and manage when you need to. Although you could use an app like OneNote, which provides similar digital scrapbook functionality; its a bit of an overkill. The simplicity of Cache, along with the quick and easy approach to storing and organization of the variety of information is what stands out.
How Does the app work?
Once you have Cache installed, launch the app, click the plus sign to add a new category.
You can resize the app, by docking it to the right of your screen, so you can easily drag content into Cache.
Launch your favorite browser then load any content you would like to capture information. You can easily drag and drop a photo from a website into the Cache app. The same goes for text, just make a selection, then drag and drop it or you can also copy and paste. Content such as images, websites are saved with unique emblem, so they are easily identifiable.
When you are ready to utilize or manage what you have captured; Cache offers a variety of options, which include launching the URL for a website, email URL, copy or delete content.
If you are interested in trying out Microsoft Cache, you can sign up now. You will need to provide some details about the type of devices you are using, along with a single sentence explaining how you intend to use the app. There is no guarantee you will be approved, but, it’s worth a try. In the meantime, if you can’t wait to use Microsoft Cache, there are alternatives you can try out. I mentioned Google Keep earlier, there is also Pocket, which we have looked at in the past and is considered one of the best in the field. Pocket is also available as an Extension for Microsoft Edge in the Windows 10 Anniversary Update. Does Microsoft Cache look like something that would make you switch or add to your arsenal of scrapbook apps? Tell us what you think in the comments and let us know which ones you are currently using.
