Annotary is a convenient browser extension and has simple functions but really useful, allows you to highlight and annotate web pages and allows you to share your notes. One of the major uses of this extension can be safely sharing notes among colleagues or between students and university.

Pros :

  • If you want to use it will need to go to the Store and download Annotary extension (for Chrome or Firefox).
  • Once installed you will have in your toolbar an icon with the letter A yellow highlight. Once clicking on the icon, you will see a toolbar, will be immediately filled out the Page Title field based on the metadata of the page, of course, can be changed, then you have available the frame of the notes which also supports the use of tags.
  • After you save the page, then you can start studying the page of your interest, and you will begin to point out (after clicking on the marker shaped button ) highlighting each part of the text of interest, after each underscore you can enter your memo about some area you have just highlighted.
  • After finishing your work, you can choose to send and share your work with a colleague, friend or student.
  • The share options are different, you can share your work through the major social networks (like Facebook, Twitter, Linkedin, Google Plus ...) and you can also send an e-mail.
  • You also have available also the option to use the link that Annotary assigns as a unique link to your work, you can then share the link where ever you want.
  • The convenience of this sharing feature is to allow a user who receives your work to display and interact with your work directly on the page that you have used.

Cons :

  • Nothing to say, easy to use and also free.

Citrix Sharefile is a late entrant to the crowded file sharing and storage service market. It provides robust and secure cloud storage and offers complete file tracking for shared files. It can be easily integrated with some enterprise applications. Files are encrypted both in transit and while in storage on their servers. One can remotely remove the shared content in case of device theft.

Pros :

Citrix Sharefile has made sharing the files very easy through email using a plugin. The process remains the same as attaching a file in your email. So, without any change in user experience, one is able to large media files through their email. But attaching a large file via email can take a very long time. So one can simply upload the file and share a link to the file with the recipient. The recipient can then access this file from anywhere and any device using a web browser. Citrix Sharefile deploys AES 256-bit encryption which is an advanced encryption method. Citrix servers are also protected by various antivirus solutions and firewalls so as to protect your files from theft. It offers complete control of your files by providing complete tracking of who accessed the file and providing an ability to set file link expiration date. The best feature is that it maintains unlimited file versions for all the files. This helps to restore the file to any previous version and is very helpful when multiple people are working on the same file. Citrix Sharefile can seamlessly integrate with any Enterprise Content Management System like Microsoft Sharepoint or Filenet. One can even connect to other cloud storage providers like Box, Google Drive, Microsoft OneDrive and Dropbox.

Cons :

One cannot add an additional layer of password protection to their files. This makes sharing your files using a link is very vulnerable. Anyone having an access to that link can download the file. So there is no way to share files with a view only mode. Citrix Sharefile is a very expensive file sharing option for enterprises especially when they have a large number of users. It is only cloud-based and does not offer an option to have a folder synced on every device.

Watchdox is an application that allows users to share documents in the most secure manner. It is very convenient to use, and the users can specify the read, write, print and other permissions for their documents. The document is then shared through a link over email. Depending on the permissions set for that particular user, the receiver can access the document. Watchdox offers a choice of hybrid, SaaS or on-premise deployment to businesses. Watchdox even has a Blackberry app that is quite obvious now as Blackberry has acquired it. It offers various plugins so that various documents can be shared via Outlook using Watchdox protection.

Pros :

  • The best part is the document tracking capability of Watchdox.
  • It provides a tracker for all the activity related to the shared documents.
  • It tells you if the document has been opened and printed the document if the document has been forwarded and even the geographical location from where the document is accessed.
  • The permissions specified while sharing the document can be modified anytime even after sharing the document.
  • One can also specify the time after which the access to the document will be revoked automatically.
  • Another important feature is that one can even edit Office documents using its mobile editor that makes the need for editing the documents with another app redundant.
  • Watchdox also allows the annotation of the stored documents and these documents can be shared along with comments and annotations with other users.
  • Few advanced security features make Watchdox one of the most secure file sharing and sync service for enterprises.
  • One can disable the screenshot capture of the shared documents.
  • One can set watermarks so that even if someone takes a printout or a screenshot, the content remains copyrighted.
  • Also, Watchdox builds security within the document that is as good as it can get to secure your documents.
  • All other security tools like Firewalls, anti-virus solutions, etc. have loopholes and can be exploited by hackers but when the documents itself are encrypted, your critical data is in safe hands.

Cons :

  • Watchdox mobile editor packs a punch of functionalities by allowing editing the office documents, but it is far away from a full-fledged office alternative.
  • There is no option of creating new documents from scratch.

The Annotary tool downloads seamlessly and quickly without causing any kind of system slowdown. If you look at a lot of websites, bookmark a lot of pages, and need a better way to keep track of important sentences, Annotary is worth a download.

What do you like best?Sharefile did make saving files that were too large for our case management software (Legal Files) more convenient.What do you dislike?It isn't particularly intuitive and was very buggy when we used it. For co-workers with less reliable internet connections or who were less computer literate it was incredibly difficult to use.Recommendations to others considering the productThere are easier programs to use out there. ShareFile gets the job done in that it does store large files. When we were using it there seemed to be constant problems with uploading and organizing files. While I'm sure some of that was attributable to user error since we have some employees who are less computer literate, the difficulty they experienced turned us off this product.What business problems are you solving? What benefits have you realized?We used it to store large video and audio files, which it did do. It was getting the documents in there and organized that was more difficult.
