Yes, for a change, this time it’s desk on desktop and not the other way round. BumpTop brings the look and feel of a real desk on PC. It lets users spatially organize and share their files and photos with their social contacts, while adding advanced search and sort capabilities.
Its features include:
Intuitive Organization: BumpTop uses the power of the PC to let users find the files they’re looking for. Frequently used files actually appear larger and heavier than lesser-used ones, becoming visually more important. Users can search by keyword and quickly gather related files into a pile, toss them directly onto a USB key or attach them to a new email, all in one step.
Productivity Enhancer: BumpTop is a digital assistant and can clean up users’ cluttered desks with Auto Pile, intelligently organizing their documents into tidy piles without losing instant access to everything.
The Social Desktop: It lets users stay connected with their social networks. Users can toss photos to Twitter and Facebook in just two steps. They can also pin up photo frames on their BumpTop walls, cycling through the latest photos from Flickr, Picasa or other photo RSS feeds.
Personalized User Interface: BumpTop gives users a customizable desk and walls to create whatever look they like, using a range of user-created themes or generating their own. The walls are used for pinning up Sticky Notes, photos, or important documents.
“BumpTop takes advantage of how human beings work and play using real interactions like tossing, piling, and bumping,” says BumpTop co-founder and CEO Anand Agarawala.
The Pro version of BumpTop is available for download at http://www.BumpTop.com for $29. A free version is also available for users who would like to try out BumpTop.
