It’s true, a picture can be worth a thousand words. Sometimes you just have to show something to somebody. Our team runs into this constantly. It could be a video clip we’re working on, a prototype for a new feature, or a defect we encounter in the UI.
There are lots of options out there for sharing screenshots, videos, and files in general. Our team uses Droplr. It is simply faster and easier than all the others.
Chances are, you’ve heard the phrase “We need to be more innovative!” or even uttered it yourself, at some point in your career. The problem is, we can’t just decide to be more innovative and expect it to happen magically. If we could, I’d be in my flying car right now! But there are some simple things we can do to give ourselves a better chance at coming up with great new ideas.
Ok, that may be a slight exaggeration. I’ll concede that Mark Korir (and many others), crossed the finish line ahead of Krumplr and me this past April 12th. But for me, Krumplr was the real winner.
iOS 8 introduced sharing as one way for users to share the data they look at in one app with another app. You can, for example, add the article you found in a Flipboard magazine to your Krumplr reading list without leaving Flipboard. You also can turn a tweet into a Krumplr to-do right in Tweetbot. Sharing works in Flipboard and Tweetbot and Thousands of other apps. It is a great and simple way to feed your favorite apps information you have in other places.
That’s right, Asana tasks have joined the list of to-dos that Krumplr can bring together for you! Add Asana to your linked accounts in Krumplr, and you can add individual Asana tasks to any of your Krumplr lists or simply type ‘@asana’ to create a list that automatically contains all of your uncompleted Asana tasks across all of the workspaces and projects you have access to. Of course, you can also create multiple Asana lists and configure them to show you just what you want to see.
Asana support is available today at krumplr.com and in our latest app release for iOS.

Phase 1 of our Evernote integration was our Christmas gift to you. It allowed you to easily turn any Evernote into a to-do. Earlier this week, we made “Phase 2: Evernote Lists”, available to all of you.
Evernote Lists automatically search the private notebooks in your connected Evernote account and show all of the notes that match their configuration (if you’re already using Gmail Lists that should sound pretty familiar). Check out this short video to see them in action:
If you’ve tried our Gmail integration, you’ve seen how we track your email to-dos. But what if you don’t use Gmail or you have a combination of mail services? Well, if we don’t have an integration for your mail system of choice yet, now you can just forward any email into Krumplr. It’s also handy on mobile; anything you can share via email you can send to your to-do list.
Creating a to-do by email is as easy as sending a message to the special email address we create for every Krumplr account.
If you are like us, you get your fair share of emails every day. Some of them cause real work. Work that you better track on your to-do list. For example, answering John will take up sufficient time so that you have to plan for it.
Early on, Krumplr started providing you with simple ways to turn a single gmail message into a to-do. You made good use of that. A few days ago we took the next step: Gmail lists. Gmail lists automatically search your gmail account and show all messages that match the list’s configuration. Nothing left for you to do manually.
Earlier this week, we released phase 1 of our Evernote integration. Connect your Evernote account to Krumplr, and you can now add Evernote notes to your lists. Perfect for those notes that need followup or that are really just detailed to-dos.
With the addition of this integration, Krumplr now allows you to bring together your Gmails, Quip documents, and Evernote notes into a single place where you can organize and prioritize them together!
We put together a short demo that shows connecting your account and working with Evernote notes so you can see it in action…
