Information. The Internet has lots of it, and in many different forms. Blogs, status updates, articles…you name it, you can probably subscribe to it. Such a concentrated influx of items of interest is great for keeping track of your usual haunts, but is probably not the best timesaver ever. Say hello to my6sense’s self-titled app, made to increase your productivity with its Digital Intuition.
Firstly, though, you must create an account before you start adding links. Like many feed readers, you can subscribe to any number of things with my6sense: social networking sites (Facebook, Twitter), anything with an RSS feed URL…you can even import from Google Reader or netvibes, so you don’t have to arduously add everything all over again on a tiny device. my6sense even adds streams for you, just in case you need a little help getting started (which is really gracious, but something I can do without, thanks). If you find yourself with something you want to add, just tap the + button on the Streams tab. Mass deletion is as easy as tapping the Edit button, or you can swipe across for a single Delete button. Using the Edit button, you can also rename streams and folders, or move streams to folders.
The Top Messages tab is where the fun happens, as that is where all the feeds from all your subscriptions pop up. But lo, there are two tabs! This tab is also where most of the magic happens. Scrolling through all the feeds in chronological order using the Time tab can be painstaking, especially if you subscribe to numerous feeds. But using my6sense’s Digital Intuition technology, you can read through the ones that interest you the most first. As you read posts, click on links, share items, or skip posts, my6sense actually dynamically picks up on what you’re most likely to look at and puts them at the top of the list in the Relevance tab. The more you use my6sense, the better it will get at predicting your tastes (if you don’t want to sift through everything at once, you can use the Streams tab to view all the feeds from a specific site or blog). You can view your Digital Intuition meter on your profile to find out just how far along you are.
my6sense is an app that’s perfect for people who have too many things to read and too little time to spare. It seems to have a good grasp of what the user wants, even after only a few uses. I like that you can import all your information, but I’d prefer an addition syncing option with other feed readers, in case I stumble upon something while using my device. I’m a big fan of app-integrated web browsers (no multitasking for me), which is another plus for this app. Digital Intuition will never be perfect, but my6sense gives it a darn good try…for free.
