How many different apps are you using to keep your PC optimized? To manage your time? To stay safe online?

It’s enough to make a grown-up cry!

Well, this is the whole reason why we created Ellp – to offer you some peace of mind!

Your PC struggling to perform the most basic of tasks? Or maybe fans are running fast and making noise? These are all signs that your PC is overheating, which most of us unfortunately ignore.

When it’s time, remind me to do something

Forgetful are we?!  It’s normal to forget things from time to time but there’s no need to stress about it as Ellp is here to help. By activating this card, and setting it up according to your needs, Ellp will remind you about your important activities, from meeting and appointment to remembering to taking your daily vitamins.

Not convinced yet and hungry for more info? Have a look at our top 3 highest performing cards:

  1. When I’m spending too much time on Facebook, ping me.
  2. When my hard disk is getting full, free up space.
  3. When my email is involved in a data breach, alert me.

july updates-top-cardsHaving these cards activated means:

  1. Halting procrastination! We’re easily distracted, but this card will help you monitor your time on Facebook, pinging you to go back to work when you’ve spent too much time mindlessly scrolling on Facebook.
  2. That you’ll no longer be limited for space! As soon as your hard disk reaches its threshold, you’ll be notified and Ellp will get rid of unwanted files for you. Keeping the good stuff, whilst getting rid of junk files!
  3. Staying on top of your security! After all, just like you don’t want your neighbor snooping around in your back garden, I’m guessing you wouldn’t want strangers prying into your personal information.

Too many open tabs on your mind – with Ellp you need not worry about boring PC tasks as it handles that for you, letting you focus on more important things.

 

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

‘Our lives revolve around instant access to a world without walls’. What does that mean exactly? We’re online every second of the day except for when we’re sleeping I guess, and we always want the information there and then, as efficiently and fast as we can get it. What really matters to us is having constant access to a WiFi connection, making sure that we’re online anywhere at any time. Obviously, being online at any time isn’t enough as we also want to make sure that the internet speed is up to par with our expectations.

Ellp’s new updates focus on the needs of today and therefore we present to you the latest card additions:

When there is a new open WiFi spot, let me know
Connectivity is key! Especially considering the fact that we’re living in the WiFi era, whereby if we have no WiFi connection we have the tendency to start feeling lost. Let’s be honest, it’s a heart- wrenching moment when you realize that you no longer have internet connectivity! Your main thoughts at that point are, ‘How am I going to tweet about my latest mishap?’ or ‘How am going to finish off sending this email while in transit without WiFi?’ – you see your life basically revolves around WiFi connectivity. But what happens when you’re not in the comfort of your own home or office, and you have no WiFi connectivity? Wouldn’t it be great to be notified of any open WiFi spots in your vicinity? This new Ellp card can help you out with that, simply turn on the activation toggle and Ellp will start notifying you when a new open WiFi spot is available around you.

When it’s time, check my Internet speed
How many times were you working on a project and your internet connectivity kept faltering to the extent that you couldn’t get any work done? Countless times, I would imagine, unless you’re one of those lucky persons, whose blessed with the talent of blocking out the most painful moments ;P What wouldn’t you give up for a steady Internet connection? It’s a bit of hassle to continuously test out your Internet speed, however, Ellp can sort that out for you with just a flip of a switch. Once this card is activated, Ellp will update you with your latest Internet connection every day at the time of your choice. How neat is that?!

Internet Speed

We sincerely hope you’re enjoying Ellp as much as we are creating it. We love to receive your feedback and seeing your suggestions come to live. We look forward to hearing more about your experiences and we promise you there’s a lot more Ellp cards coming your way!

If this is your case, than this card will do the trick.

When I download a song, save it to my preferred folder
By default, all your downloaded files, be it documents, movies, pictures or songs, will be saved automatically in your Download folder. Rummaging through hundreds of files to actually find that song you just downloaded is a bit of a nightmare, to say the least! But don’t fret, with this brand new card you can keep all your downloaded songs organized. Simply activate the ‘When I download a song, save it to my preferred folder’ and obviously choose a designated folder that you’d like all your downloaded songs saved to and voila – that’s your music organized.

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.Ellp update - FB ping cardWhen 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!

Ellp update-Full Download cardWhen 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!

ellp update-YouTube cardWhen 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!

Ellp update-Movie Pref FolderWith 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.
