Wakelet launches transformational ‘quickwake’ tool


Tech start-up Wakelet is hoping to further transform the way people share and consume content online with the launch of a new tool.

Wakelet’s original platform essentially allows users to ‘organise the internet’ by aggregating links, images and other interesting or valuable content into handy folders named ‘wakes’.

It powers the new ‘quickwake’ tool, which allows people to turn a group of individual links – be it a YouTube video, an interactive tweet or an article preview – into an interactive and shareable collection within seconds.

According to CEO Jamil Khalil, the new quickwake tool will open up “even more amazing possibilities” for all users and “change the landscape of internet curation”.

“Wakelet is used by people and businesses every day to organise and share content that is important to them,” he said.

“The quickwake tool makes it even easier to do so – whether it’s shopping lists, travel plans, portfolios, or businesses using it to share their press articles, we believe there is a use for everyone.”

Manchester-based Wakelet is used by businesses, journalists, celebrities, musicians and athletes to organise and share information effectively. Rugby club Leicester Tigers have used it to connect with fans.

Founded in 2014 by Khalil, it has attracted investment from the likes of Chillango founders Chris Byatte and Joe Wee, who published the famously addictive game Angry Birds.
