We are shutting Refinder down

With a sad eye we announce today: We are shutting down. We did not see the uptake in usage and growth that would be needed to run this Software company as a profitable business.

The last few years at Gnowsis have been very valuable years for us. Now we conclude our journey. For users of Refinder, this means:

Presents for Mother's Day

If you are looking for a present for your mom for mother's day, get inspired by Refinder. I searched through my cloud services for my mom and found Google Calendar entries and notes, giving me a good idea what to do next.

I used Refinder to search for my mom - to get a quick inspiration what I could give her for mother's day. The most results came when searching for "mama", which is what I write down when I speak of her in my Google Calendar, Dropbox, and Evernote(s).

Inviting your team to a collection

A collection for a project or your team starts to become really useful when you invite people to join it. They give you a secure project or communication space where only invited members have access. Everyone invited to a collection can read all data and comments in a collection. You can configure whether people can write into a collection. Only the collection creator can invite people and remove them from the collection, also the creator can remove any content from a collection "to clean it up". 

Open Position: Marketing Director of Refinder

We are looking for a marketing director for Refinder. Refinder changes the way people work with cloud apps: projects that were spread over Dropbox, Google Docs, and other apps can now be integrated. Users reduce their email overflow, find information easier, stay on track what the team does, increase productivity. You are the one who will manage the way how professional cloud users will learn about Refinder.
