Onfolio is a content collection program that now includes a news aggregator for grabbing and organizing all of those RSS feeds you track (like jkOTR).  They have just made the beta for version 2.0 available for download so if you need to file information you grab from the internet and a feed reader check them out.  This version offers full compatibility with Firefox which is becoming more important every day as Firefox’s market share grows.

    I use Onfolio V1 and I wouldn’t classify it as an RSS aggregator. The RSS feed functions are new with V2, and the main function is to to easily download web content and organize that content and search through it. I’ve used it to collect information that I am researching on the Internet.

  3. Frank, how do you like it? I am trying ContentSaver now for that very purpose and it’s pretty good.

  4. I have updated the news item to reflect the content management stuff. Thanks for pointing that out, Frank. The PR they sent me went on and on about the RSS stuff that I assumed that’s what it was.

    I think Onfolio is decent, but I hooked up with it before I got OneNote. I think if I had OneNote first I probably wouldn’t have got Onfolio. However, Onfolio works within the browser, which makes sense when you are saving web content.

    I’m working on a full review of the new beta release right now. It’s a very impressive upgrade of an already well-designed product. The new RSS functions are very nicely implemented and there are excellent small improvements to the core functionality of verion 1.x.

    One very nice touch is a “Capture” button added to Outlook that lets you do a one-click add of the e-mail message, its text content or its attachment to one of your collections.

    A lot of folks made essentially the same comment Frank does about OneNote and Onfolio. They *do* overlap quite a bit, especially with the new capabilities in OneNote SP1 and the PowerToys available for it. The big argument in favor of Onfolio, IMO, as a research tool is that it is integrated into the browser (as Frank points out) and offers a Deskbar for working with files and other applications.

  7. Marc, I can’t wait for your review. I was impressed while I ran it but just had to uninstall it due to the Outlook hook was messing Outlook up. I have so many add-ins in Outlook that I am seeing random problems starting up or shutting down. I will revisit Onfolio shortly.

    Hey jk,

    I’d love to hear more about the problem you ran into with our Outlook add in, if you have the inclination to tell me about it. You could drop me a line or at charles at onfolio.com or I’ll keep my eyes on this comment thread to see if I can help!

    The Onfolio add-in for oUtlook does slow up launch times but has been benin once launched on my setup. Watch my blog over the next day or two. I have discovered a most excellent tool for geeks like you and me who can not help themselves when it comes to playing with add-ins for Outlook.

    I continue to be mightily impressed with this beta of Onfolio and the review is shaping up. I should have it published by next Monday as I have the rest of the week off.

  10. The rest of the week off? Slacker. :)
