1. What is Ellp?

Think of Ellp as a digital butler – a personal device helper that gets PC tasks done for you. A butler whose main aim is to automate your PC in a simple, personalized and customizable way. You know all those boring PC tasks that you usually have to do yourself, such as removing duplicate files, organizing your Downloads folder, saving your tagged Facebook photos, securing your privacy, and freeing up disk space? Well, Ellp can take care of these tasks for you and so much more – so you can focus on what really matters most!

2. What’s the story behind Ellp?

We are a bunch of tech enthusiasts who share the same passions: inspiring landscapes, delicious food and quality time with people we care about. In today’s day and age, these simple things that matter to us the most, are often the ones we don’t have time for. From your child’s first steps, to the most delicious meal your grandma cooked, to sharing the romantic sunset with your partner – we all tend to miss out on these on a daily basis. Always busy, always doing something in front of a screen. Ellp was developed to change just that!

4. How much do I have to pay to use Ellp?

This is the best part yet – it’s completely FREE.

5. How does Ellp work?

  • What are Ellp Cards?

Ellp cards are the heart and soul of the whole automation concept. Each card helps you carry out a different task, covering four categories – productivity, performance, security, and entertainment. The card itself is based on a trigger and action approach. What’s that you might ask? Let’s take an Ellp card example, ‘When I spend too much time on Facebook, ping me’ – the trigger in this example is the fact that you’re spending a lot of time mindlessly scrolling on Facebook, while the action is Ellp pinging you back to reality, so you can get back to work and be more productive.

  • How do I create and customize my own cards?

For the time being, you can’t create your own Ellp cards as they are predefined, but you can still optimize certain cards to your preferences in order to make the best and effective use of them. For example, you can choose your preferred time when to receive a weather update.

Don’t worry, creating custom cards is on our minds too and we will introduce the concept in a way in the future. First, we would like to understand the type of cards our users find more useful. Then, we will keep adding more customization options to them.
