GetVega is a smart list creator that helps users remember everything. Users can compare prices and sizes before making a purchase. The application also includes collaboration features that let users work with a friend or an entire team. Content, such as videos, text and images, can be grabbed directly from third party websites. GetVega supports a community of list-building users as well. The user can explore lists created by others to find out how they are utilizing the application’s features. Lists can include numerous items with specific details, such as prices, addresses, sizes and any notes the contributor assigned to the item. Users can also see the original URL for each item.
GetVega is currently in beta. The application was intended to help internet users gather and sort information they need online. Even though GetVega isn’t as well-known as other bookmarking solutions, the application has earned some attention and awards. The application’s achievements include a Scientipole Initiative award, 2010 Startup Numerique award and a 2011 TechCrunch Recipes award. GetVega continues to grow its service offerings and user base.
There are many ways to create digital lists. GetVega offers a unique method that gives the user a few ways to make their lists work harder with less effort. The application offers a convenient browser bookmarking tool that lets the user pull data directly from any web page. The user can complete the new item entry form simply by selecting content from the page. The application also provides users with an easy way to compare items, locations and more.
GetVega uses a design that is very clean, in fact it would border on bland if it wasn’t for the color scheme. The pale background is offset by deep gold and pleasant purple hues found in the headers, buttons and occasional text link. The new account dashboard also helps users along with five list suggestions to encourage the user to get creative and use GetVega to its fullest potential.
New users can join the growing GetVega community by clicking the green “Join” button near the top, center of the homepage. A pop up box appears and asks the user for an email address, full name and password. The user can also click one of three buttons below the form to sign in with an existing Facebook, Twitter or Google account. The user is automatically logged in and can begin using GetVega.
GetVega is available for free. There are no subscription fees required and the user doesn’t have to make any purchases. The application can be very handy, but it doesn’t offer anything that a user would be willing to pay for. The free price is right where it should be to encourage users to sign up and give GetVega a try. The application is still in beta so it is possible that future additions may lead to a premium subscription, but that has not been mentioned on the site.
GetVega is a helpful tool for anyone who is using the internet to research almost anything. The user can grab information directly from web pages without re-typing it over and over again. The application gives the user a centralized place to store all their data to make comparisons easier. GetVega also appeals to groups working on the same project thanks to its collaboration capabilities.
