With the advent of cloud applications, we suddenly found ourselves with a handful of useful tools that we can implement in our daily work. From Google Drive to Dropbox, may use many of these services separately. An excellent application to join them is Busy Flow , which allows us to synchronize in one place all these services and use them collaboratively with other members of our team.
Busy Flow is a good way to centralize our files and applications to avoid having to run different instances of different apps while working on a single project. The application works by creating Hives or "beehives" where we are adding our services and then invite collaborators to participate. Some of the applications are supported by Google Docs Busy Flow, Pivotal, Google Calendar, GitHub and Dropbox, and soon added other very important as Basecamp and Evernote.
With an interface very clear and clean, Busy Flow is also very simple to use. First we have to proceed with the creation of a Hive, giving name and clicking the Create button. Then get to a screen where you are prompted to add the services you want to bind to Busy Flow. When selecting Google Drive, for example, we have the freedom to synchronize only some folders, instead of our entire account. This gives us the opportunity to further separate the work, to be productive, and not give you access to the files to people who should not have it.
Synchronization with Dropbox is also very simple. Busy Flow will lead to a separate window where we have to allow the application access to our Dropbox account, and again, as with Google Docs, you can select a folder only to be accessible by the application. Finally, we have also tried to sync with Google Calendar, which also allows you to choose between different calendars that have enabled.
Once we finished adding applications, you can click on the name of the Hive in the left sidebar. There we will be taken to a sort of newsfeed which will be published the news of the actions we take in Busy Flow. To add more members to Busy Flow, find a box in the right sidebar where you can enter the emails of the people we want to invite. In this same sidebar widgets can find Calendar and Docs.
In this same sidebar can find a series of tabs at the top. To access Dropbox, or other service without seeing the other as a widget in the sidebar, you can click here. When we do, we will access the same files sidebar.
Furthermore it is important to note is the social functionality of Busy Flow. Of course, we have a collaborative service, we should be able to communicate with our partners. For that, we have different types of publications. One is Honeyed, which allows us to highlight a particular post that we find interesting. But we can also create discussions, and from the same screen and send files to other things that have synchronized services.
Finally, one of the most outstanding features is the ability to create events through the top status bar:
Busy Flow and is an excellent application and very simple to use. Once you join more services like Basecamp, Box and Evernote, an app will care and a very powerful tool. With the ability to have everything in one place, is something like the Facebook of work.
