Gone are the Henry Ford days ‘ Any color – so long as it’s black.’ (Phew, otherwise my job as a Marketeer would be super boring, to say the least) Today, there are so many options for customers to choose from. Whether it’s shopping around for the best prices, the newest product versions, enhanced features, and excellent customer service, the power is ultimately in the customer’s hands. This is why businesses today must strive hard to meet their customer’s needs at all costs.

That takes me to our latest Ellp advancement. We’ve just recently introduced the Automatic Update for Ellp!

Cool! But what does it mean for you?

This means a couple of things;

  1. Ellp’s got your back

So because we keep popping out new cards and features like there’s no tomorrow, we thought it would be best for Ellp to update automatically without the need for you to stay bothering with updating it yourself. This way things will be a lot easier, not to mention hassle free. When new cards or features are in, we’ll send you an email to let you know that they’ve arrived. Obviously, all cards are set as deactivated by default, waiting for you to turn them on if you want to.

  1. Saves you time

Considering all the updates we have monthly, this automatic update will save you some time without the unnecessary updating. It might have just been a 30 second update in the past, but there are so many better things you could be doing with your time.

  1. A better Ellp experience

This may seem like a small change, but believe me when I say this is a big deal. Time is precious, so if we can improve your Ellp experience by just saving you a few seconds then we will. The idea of Ellp is based on the simplicity principle, so if it’s not super simple then we’re not doing our job right.

Let me know if you have any questions or feedback about our most recent update. We’ll be happy to get back to you! Just give us a shout at help@ellp.com

 

Best,

Kristina

When an application is slowing down my PC, alert me

PC Startup Card (1)

November 14 - (4 Min Read)

Do you remember the excitement of starting your new fresh-out-of-the-shop PC for the very first time? How smooth and fast it was?! You may look at your PC now wondering why these beautiful days are long gone. I’ve heard of some cases when a laptop would take over 5 minutes (yes, over 5 minutes, enough time to fix yourself a coffee) to start up. As much as we like to assume that this comes with age, computers are not humans, and can be fixed back to as-good-as-new state!

There are many possible reasons why your PC may be running slow at startup. Just to name a few:

  • temporary files,
  • web browser data,
  • security threats

… and more. In reality, this list can be never ending! However, there’s one thing that affects PC startup time more than the rest, and that’s large and bulky applications that keep running in the background which as a result cause slow bootup time.  

There are manual ways to track and disable these applications. Yet, if you’re reading the Ellp blog, I can safely assume that you prefer to invest your time somewhere else and let automation do your job for you! So… the name of the card you’re looking for to take care of your startup issues is ‘When an application starts slowing down my PC startup, alert me’.

This card can be found under the ‘Performance’ category. All it takes on your end is to activate it. Next time you start up your PC, Ellp will let you know which applications are slowing it down. This way you can stop wasting time and just go straight to the applications that are delaying you from getting on with your work and close them, allowing you to get straight to the important stuff!

With this card active, no more annoying delays in getting your gear ready to serve you! And you just saved your PC a few good years of serving you, too. Well done!

If you’re a fan of getting things done faster, then Ellp is just the right solution for you. This new PC assistant can take care of a variety of PC tasks for you; from maintaining your PC at the optimal level of performance, to helping you stay focused and productive, to monitoring your online safety, and even elevating your entertainment. And what’s best – Ellp is free to download and yours to keep!

Hi there,

As you’ll soon find out, unless you’ve heard already, October was a busy month at Ellp, to say the least. We’ve been working super hard to get Ellp to reach new heights for you.

So here are our top 4 updates:

1. Bexit (Beta Exit)

More than 30,000 lines of code, over 150 fixed bugs, new customization options, some seriously slick designs, and 39 Ellp cards later, we’re now officially out of Beta! This means an even better Ellp will keep unfolding before your eyes. Super Cards. Feature Boosts. And more!

2. Automatic Update

Backed by popular demand, we thought it would be best for Ellp to update automatically without the need for you to stay bothering with updating it yourself every so often – especially since we’re popping out new cards and features like there’s no tomorrow. When new cards or features are in, we’ll send you an email to let you know that they’ve arrived. Obviously, all cards are set as deactivated by default, waiting for you to turn them on if you want to.

3. The Ellp community

We created a place where you can share Your Ellp Ideas, this way we can build the cards you want to use. You can add your own ideas, up-vote, down-vote, share and comment why you like or dislike a new Ellp card. The ideas with the most hits will have a bigger chance of getting to the production line, so follow the news feed on your Ellp ideas page to find out if your card made it! Click here to start adding your ideas.

4. More cards! YASSSS

We’ve added two new Ellp cards to the bag! And while we were at it, we optimised one of our previous cards also.

Keep Me Focused is our newly upgraded card. Activate this card to get notified when you’re wasting time on sites like Facebook, YouTube, Twitter – you name it!  The best part is that you can select as many sites as you like.

October at Ellp

P.S You’ll find this one in the popular cards section of Ellp. Enjoy!

Open Things Together is one of the newbies! Activate this card to get Ellp to open apps and folders together so you can get to them faster.

Rest Your PC Activate this Ellp card to get notified when your PC has been on for too long so you can give it a break.

 

If you’re a fan of getting things done faster, then Ellp is just the right solution for you. This new PC assistant can take care of a variety of PC tasks for you; from maintaining your PC at the optimal level of performance, to helping you stay focused and productive, to monitoring your online safety, and even elevating your entertainment. And what’s best – Ellp is free to download and yours to keep!

Since launching Ellp in September 2016 and 100,000 downloads later, we learned a great deal about what it takes to launch a startup. One thing is certain, there are some cool tools out there willing to make your life a lot easier!

If you are a startup owner, you may be on the lookout for the best services out there to help you getting the right audience and communicating with your users, receiving their feedback and measuring their behaviors. Let me share with you what tools we chose for Ellp, what they can do for you and what was our experience with them.

Viral Loops

(A revolutionary template-based viral & referral marketing solution for modern marketers)

Our first public appearance featured a sign-up campaign for early adopters of Ellp’s Beta version. The campaign lasted for a month and recorded over 1,200 sign-ups. The last thing you want to do before launching is reinventing the wheel. That is why we turned to Viral Loops and used one of their referral programs. We had designed a simple, yet effective, leaderboard campaign whereby the Top 10 referrers would get VIP status and receive Amazon vouchers. The cool thing with Viral Loops is that they offer pre-made templates for all sorts of gamified launches.

thanks-to-Hotjar-Doorbell-and-Viral-Loops-1

 

Doorbell

(A tool to gather in-app feedback)

On launch day, I remember waking up much earlier than usual to start seeing the feedback coming in. We were all excited to see whether the concept was being accepted and that the design and user experience was appealing as we thought it was. But what we were interested to hear the most was blunt feedback that would enable us to up our game. To encourage users to share their thoughts, we introduced an in-product poll asking users to submit their sentiment and to share anything they feel was worth sharing with us. As the Doorbell.io feedback tool supported the concept of user sentiment out-of-the-box, it was an ideal match for Ellp. Doorbell’s Feedback Capture API allowed us to implement Doorbell integration on the Ellp server rather than in the Ellp application, as this would allow greater flexibility. To date, we have collected over 3,600 direct user feedbacks, of which a staggering 88% was positive! Even though we’re blushed to see all of this support coming in, we give extreme importance to those users who either provide recommendations or require additional support or simply dislike our product. Doorbell’s simple interface allows us to segment this feedback and get back to users as quickly as possible. Their service is impeccable and Phil, the brains behind it all, is always super responsive to any query we might have or suggestion we might make. Eventually, in addition to our in-app feedback, it was a no-brainer to integrate our website feedback and email feedback with Doorbell too, and now we handle all users’ feedback through a single interface.

Hotjar

(A new and easy way to truly understand your web and mobile site visitors)

While a lot of our energies are focused on the product, we are also very active in our online presence. Our website, www.ellp.com, does not only need to convey our message and brand values, but it is also the place to be for those wanting to download Ellp. Over the past year, we constantly kept optimizing the website’s user-experience, improved on our content and tried to make it easier for users to download and install Ellp. We did, in fact, roll out a number of iterations on Ellp.com as you can see below.

What you see above, is the evolution of Ellp website in the last year
What you see above, is the evolution of Ellp website in the last year

 

Changes, however, are not just esthetical. In fact, we have been using Hotjar to make sure we really understand our users’ challenges in browsing our site, understanding our value proposition and giving Ellp a try.

Through their cool heat map functionality, we could easily figure out what are the content, visuals and CTAs (calls to action) capturing users attention. It might not always be what you want to think! In this particular version, we realized that the 30-second animation was clearly grabbing our users’ attention but failed to take the message across. This is when we decided to have an animated hero banner that was more descriptive. This brought about around 26% improvement in Ellp’s download rate. A huge success for us (for now!).

thanks-to-Hotjar-Doorbell-and-Viral-Loops-6

Hotjar also helped us a lot in collecting user feedback online through their easy-to-set-up polls. Recently, we did in fact set up an online poll (in literally 2 mins!) asking the users what cards they would want us to develop next. Tons of cool ideas started flowing in and some of them are already at development stage!

thanks-to-Hotjar-Doorbell-and-Viral-Loops-6

 

While there is still a lot ahead of us in terms of developing Ellp and taking it where our vision leads, the progress we made in a year is tremendous. Could Ellp have done it without these tools? For sure, not. We’re living the era of startups and there are thousands of tools out there willing to make our lives easier. You just have to look for them. Good luck!

P.S. If you’re a fan of getting things done faster, then Ellp is just the right solution for you. This new PC assistant can take care of a variety of tasks for you from maintaining your PC at the optimal level of performance, to helping you stay focused and be productive, to monitoring your online safety and even to elevating your entertainment. And what’s best – Ellp is free to download and yours to keep!

Hello there, Our Dear Ellp User!

Time flies! Another month is about to end so here I am: Aneta, your Ellp Evangelist in another post to summarize another busy and fruitful month at Ellp!

Ellp Product Team

In terms of functionality updates, this month is a HUUUGE one for Ellp. Why? As the long-desired and requested-by-many ‘multi-configuration’ feature is now available within the product!

What does that mean? Some of your favorite cards can do more than one job at a time for you. To find out how to make the most out of this functionality, check our Head of Product Reuben’s blog post called Extending the Ellp Card.

One would think that since so many resources were taken to implement this change, that we may not have had the time to see to other important features.Well, one would be wrong as there is more!

More new aesthetic UI and UX changes were introduced to Ellp’s design. Both the Ellp cards and view panel were revamped with a touch of freshness. The design is even simpler now. Navigation within the product is also further simplified and users can now get a better idea of the full range of cards which are right for them.

No way!?

Yes way!

But there’s more!

More??!

Yassss

3 more Ellp cards in the bag!

  • When my desktop gets crowded, organize it
  • When I unplug my headphones, mute the sound
  • When I’m working hard, remind me to take a break

You can find out more about these cards in the September Update post.

New changes to our Blog

So here’s the 411, every month we take a look at the blog and check for the most popular posts that provide the most value to our readers. Based on your feedback (and our stats), we decided to introduce two major changes to the blog flow:

Before I let you go, there are two more articles I don’t want for you to miss out on this month:

10 Most Useful Windows Shortcuts for Non-Tech Users is a list of hidden magic that can be done in Windows if you know just the right key combinations. From managing your virtual desktops to restoring that super-needed closed-by-mistake browser window (ooops!) to bookmarking a website, we have you covered. Take notes now 🙂

5 reasons to take a break is our ultimate productivity hack. Delivering results is not about working hard and falling asleep with your nose on your keyboard. It’s about being disciplined and smart. So next time, before you skip your break, think twice!

Till the next amazing month,

Latest Ellp Updates – September

September 14 - (5 Min Read)

Another month at Ellp brings with it new Ellp updates! Hoorayy 🎉 The team, here at Ellp, is continuously striving to make Ellp better. Let’s just say that the product team have outdone themselves this time round. How? Since our last update back in August, Ellp now got a new mini facelift, new cards and much more.

So what’s in store for you with the latest update?

For those of you who have already updated Ellp, might have already familiarised yourselves with the recent changes and features. But for those who have yet to update Ellp, here’s what to expect.

New Cards

When my desktop gets crowded, organize it

Clutter doesn’t encourage productivity! I’m not only talking about desk clutter but also about disorganization on your PC. Most of the time you end up saving hundreds of files on your desktop without finding the time to organize it as you keep postponing it for later. Try this Ellp card, to help you organize your desktop. Once activated this card will help you clean out your desktop when it gets too overcrowded.

When I unplug my headphones, mute the sound

The idea for this card was created by you for you! We received multiple messages suggesting this particular card, and finally, here it is! Your PC can detect when your headphones are plugged in, but it can’t detect it when they’re unplugged. Ellp can help with that. By simply activating this card, Ellp will mute the sound the moment you unplug your headphones, so you can keep the peace!

When I’m working hard, remind me to take a break

If you’re the kind of person who gets so lost in their work, then this card is ideal for you. It’s normal to be so focused on an important task that you forget to take your breaks. However, breaks are important just as much as any other task. It might sound counter-intuitive, but believe me, it’s not! Just like any other engine, your brain needs to refuel. So every now and again, step away from your desk, go make yourself a cup of coffee or simply step out for some fresh air. Your brain and body will thank you for it. While you’re at it get Ellp you help you with it. To do so simply activate the card and Ellp will notify you every time it’s time to take a break.

september updates-01

Redesign of the cards and view panel

The new design is clean and was made even simpler, allowing for easier navigation around your Ellp cards, making it more user-friendly. The redesign of the cards view, utilizes the whole space, and the editing parts are more prominent and clearly visible so you can easily edit according to your preferences. The view panel now, also suggests the Ellp cards that you might want to activate next, based on your previously activated cards, making Ellp yours.

september updates-02

Multi-config feature

We’ve received tons of messages asking us to add more flexibility on the Ellp cards’ customization options. This new Ellp multi-config feature is just the first step in that direction.  This latest feature is currently available on 14 of our Ellp Cards and gives you the possibility to do more with Ellp. For a more detailed overview, check out our previous blog, written by none other than our Head of Product, Reuben.

september updates-03

The dynamics of the product are expanding and we promise to keep on improving and optimizing the product to ensure and enhance your Ellp experience.

This is not a trial. It’s yours to keep!

Top 5 Ellp Cards to Boost Productivity

top 5 productivity cards-03

Writer


September 11 - (7 Min Read)

Friday… your weekend is about to start! Saturday… Sunday and BAM! It’s Monday again! Still in awe at how the weekend just flew by in the blink of an eye. Oh well, all good things come to an end, and now we find ourselves back at the office, ready for a full week ahead. Thing is Mondays are ever so difficult to shake off. Talk about Monday blues! I guess we’d still be buzzing off the weekend vibes.

The worst thing is that unknowingly we tend to be less productive on Mondays and we find ourselves constantly battling to get to the bottom of our tower-high stack of work. Therefore, you can just relax, it’s not just you who experiences that Monday feeling, it is a universal phenomenon. Snapping back into productivity mode just after a relaxing weekend is difficult for everyone. But don’t fret! Ellp is here to help you snap out of that groggy morning feeling.

Learn More CTA

Here are our top 5 Ellp cards to help boost your Monday productivity:

1. When my desktop gets crowded, organize it

Clutter doesn’t encourage productivity! I’m not only talking about desk clutter but also about disorganization on your PC. Most of the time you end up saving hundreds of files on your desktop without finding the time to organize it as you keep postponing it for later. Try this Ellp card, to help you organize your desktop. Once activated this card will help you clean out your desktop when it gets too overcrowded.

2. When I download the same file twice, let me know

It’s pretty easy to lose focus and lose track of what you’ve done already, especially when it comes to downloading files. This Ellp card is here to take care of just that! By activating this card, Ellp would notify you of any duplicate files you’ve downloaded and get rid of them for you. Not only that, but this will save you the ordeal of having to go through multiple duplicate files in the future.

3. When I’m spending too much time on Facebook, ping me

Probability is, that you’d go on Facebook just for 2 minutes, but it’s funny how you always end up scrolling through your Facebook newsfeed for an hour. It’s addictive, we know all so perfectly well! It happens to the best of us. However, you need to minimize this curb of enthusiasm for Facebook. If you feel that you can’t do it on your own, then why not activate this card, and have Ellp ping you every time you’ve spent too much time on Facebook.

4. When I open an application, open another one

Isn’t it annoying having to waste time searching for, and then clicking on your favorite applications to open? Now you can get straight to the tasks that really matter, as when activating this new card, found within the Productivity category, Ellp will launch that one application that you use on a daily basis upon opening another application. Isn’t that neat?! By using this card you can rid yourself of morning mayhem and let Ellp set the right tone for the rest of your day.

5. When I’m working hard, remind me to take a break

If you’re the kind of person who gets so lost in their work, then this card is ideal for you. It’s normal to be so focused on an important task that you forget to take your breaks. However, breaks are important just as much as any other task. It might sound counter-intuitive, but believe me, it’s not! Just like any other engine, your brain needs to refuel.

Extending the Ellp card

multi-config feature-00
Written by Reuben Borg
Head of Product


September 7 - (5 Min Read)

An all-new level of Ellp card Customization is something we’ve been working on for a while now, as you may recall from my interview a couple of weeks ago. And for those who follow our blog regularly, you might also be familiar with the way we prioritize feedback, and the huge influence you guys have on our product strategy.

One of the main topics among the 3,000+ positive messages we received so far has been adding more flexibility on the Ellp Cards’ customization options; which is a way you would be able to make an Ellp card truly yours.

The recently released Ellp Multi-Config feature is the first huge step in this direction. Don’t worry too much about the geeky name we chose for it, because the true definition you can use is “extending the awesomeness of a card to as much as I want to”  😉

Let’s take the card ‘When I turn on my PC, open my favorite website’ as an example. Till now, you could only configure this for 1 website, say your Gmail. But you might also want to open Facebook and some news site, right? Or perhaps set the ‘When my email is involved in a data breach, alert me’  card to also check online accounts registered on your partner’s, children’s, or parents’ email addresses. Well, now you can.

This feature is currently available on 14 of our Ellp Cards. To show you exactly how it works, I’ll use the card ‘When I turn on my PC, open my favorite website’ as an example. As always, 3 simple steps are key:

  • Step 1: Configure the first instance of the card to your liking, and activate it by clicking on the yellow ‘Activate Card’  button at the bottom.

multi-config feature-01

 

  • Step 2: The card is now ON! Go ahead and create a second instance of the card by clicking on the grayish ‘ADD ANOTHER’  button right below the card title. You should notice that the card title has duplicated itself. (Note: the ‘ADD ANOTHER’ button will only be visible on the Ellp Cards which support the multi-config feature).
  • Step 3: Simply edit the second instance as you wish. If the card is already ON, then there is no need to re-activate it.

 

multi-config feature-02

 

That’s it! Now you have a single card doing more for you 🙃 You can keep adding more instances – it’s unlimited!

multi-config feature-03

Created an instance by mistake? Or perhaps there is one you don’t need anymore? Just click on the close ( x ) right next to it, and it’s gone.  

Finally, when you go back to the main screen, you will notice that the Ellp card you just configured with more than 1 instance will have a stacked-like look. This is for you to easily distinguish which cards you have set more than one time.

multi-config feature-04

Yep, that simple. If you like the Ellp Cards and what they do, then you will love this, trust me!

This is not a trial. It’s yours to keep!

How to stop your PC from overheating with Ellp

pc overheating-00
Written by Aneta
Ellp Evangelist


September 4 - (3 Min Read)

Just like kryptonite is Superman’s weakness, depriving him of his superpowers, heat, similarly is the number one enemy of all electronics – and PCs are no exception! Over time, with improved CPU performance, enhanced graphic cards, and higher resolutions, PCs have become more powerful. But on the flip side, this comes at a cost, and that is excessive PC heat. So keeping our PC running within safe temperatures is of utmost importance, especially during the hot summer months.

What causes PCs to overheat?

Don’t go into panic mode! Just because your laptop seems hot, it doesn’t necessarily mean that it’s overheating. However, there are some tell-tale signs that indicate that your PC might be struggling due to excessive heat. For example, if your laptop’s fan is running at maximum speed for most of the time, it is a sign of overheating. Another sign is if your laptop starts dropping in performance, what happens is your CPU starts slowing down so it can reduce some of that excessive heat pressure.

Unfortunately most of us tend to ignore these signs. This is why a cooling system is one of the most critical components of your device. Why? Well, without it the electrical components of your PC wouldn’t be able to function, resulting in overheating.

What’s the damage?

We might overlook PC overheating and not take it as seriously as we should. However, if it keeps on occurring and we keep ignoring the signs, then overheating can lead to hardware failure, and cause damage that’s way beyond repair! If your laptop keeps on randomly shutting down on you, it could be that excessive heat is affecting the CPU. This slows down your PC and will start struggling – even to perform the most basic of tasks. Overheating might also cause potential data loss, and can even take a jab at affecting your PC’s integral components, such as the motherboard.
