These past 3 months flew by in the blink of an eye! I guess that’s what happens when you’re having fun creating and developing a product that people are enjoying 🙂 We can’t thank you enough for your feedback! To show you that your comments didn’t fall on deaf ears, we’ve got more updates for you.
So here’s what’s in store for you this time around:
When I’m spending too much time on Facebook, ping me
At some point in the day, your mind may wander off elsewhere instead of focusing on the task at hand. More often than not, you’ll end up wasting time scrolling through your Facebook newsfeed or snooping around other people’s profiles. Don’t worry, you’re not alone, we’re all guilty of this! Ellp has got a card to remedy this ailment. All you’d have to do is activate this card and select a timeframe, for example: ‘When I spend more than 30 minutes browsing through Facebook, ping me’. Once activated, Ellp will alert you when you’ve spent way too much time on Facebook, so you can stop procrastinating and get back to work.When my downloads folder is filling up, clear out the old stuff
When was the last time you went through your downloads folder and cleared it out? No need to be ashamed if you haven’t done so in quite a while, I dread it too! Unless you have some sort of preconfigured settings, all your downloaded files will be automatically saved in your Downloads folder. It would be swell if you were able to clear out the Downloads folder without the headache of having to manually take care of it yourself. No?! This is where this new Ellp card comes in handy! By simply activating this card and setting the time limit for how long old items can stay, Ellp will notify you whenever your Downloads folder is filling up. Once it has your approval it will clear out the old stuff for you, allowing you to get back that valuable disk space you so desperately need!
When I plug in my headphones, open YouTube
So we already have a card that launches Spotify when you plug in your headphones or headset. However, not everyone uses Spotify, for some YouTube e is the go-to music site. So we thought, why not have a card that launches YouTube, each time you plug in your headphones? So how does this work exactly? First things first: you’ll need headphones 😉 Once that’s sorted, simply activate the card and boom, you’re all set! This way you can save time and just go straight to your favorite videos and music. Enjoy!
When I download a movie, save it to my preferred folder
Nowadays we can simply download anything we like, we have access to an immense variety of options, from music files to movies. Meaning that you no longer have to wait till a movie is available at your local cinema to watch it, instead, you can simply purchase and download to watch it in the comfort of your own home. How sweet is that?! The only issue is that we tend to download so many files that it can be somewhat of a nightmare to stay going through all the downloads in search of that movie you’ve been so dying to watch. Now wouldn’t it be easier if you had your downloaded movies saved to a particular folder of your choice? With Ellp this is possible! All you have to do is select this card on Ellp and choose a designated folder that you’d like to have all downloaded movies saved to and voila – that’s you all set!
With this latest update, now there are 24 Ellp cards made available to you, enhancing your Ellp experience 🙂 This only marks the beginning of Ellp and we promise you that more outstanding updates will be made available to you in the upcoming months. If you have any feedback or something you’d like us to cover on our blog, please do let us know! We’re more than happy to help 😀
