It’s August everyone! And that means a new month that brings with it a whole lot of great updates, from the awesome product team here at Ellp. Over the past months, the team has been focusing on making your life easier just by adding a little automation to your daily routine, so that you can focus on what matters most.

So what’s new in Ellp?

Well, this time round, the latest product updates revolve around 3 categories: Productivity, Performance, and Entertainment, and therefore we present you a new card for each of the aforementioned categories. So without further ado, let me introduce you to the latest card additions.

When my battery is fully charged, let me know

Kristina spilled the beans about this card, which was inspired by Ellp users, in yesterday’s blog post! The thing with PC battery notifications, is that you’re notified when your devices’ battery is running low, however, there is no available setting to let you know when your device has been fully charged. Well, our product team has created an Ellp card just for that purpose. The ‘When my battery is fully charged, let me know’ card, which falls underneath the Performance category, once activated will notify you whenever your battery is fully charged. This will not only help you to save up on your electricity bill but also prolong your battery’s lifespan.

When I turn on my PC, open my favorite application

Isn’t it annoying having to waste time searching for, and then clicking on your favorite application 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 PC startup. 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.

When the International Space Station passes over me, let me know

Those of you who are obsessed with Space know what the International Space Station is and what’s its purpose. For those of you who don’t, the ISS, is a large spacecraft in low orbit around the Earth. It completes 15.5 orbits a day and serves as a home for astronauts and cosmonauts. Just in case you’d like to see it, once this card is activated, Ellp will let you know when the ISS is passing overhead.

Ellp’s latest update brings a number of new infrastructural changes, including a new navigation menu and a sharing facility. However, the most noteworthy of them all would be the redefined categories. So far we’ve introduced you to Ellp and its automation mechanism – the Ellp cards. Now, it’s high time that we go into detail about the Ellp categories themselves, without which Ellp would be a huge pile up of disorganized cards/ disaster in the making. It’s not the case! Yet knowing where we want to take Ellp in terms of variety of cards and functionalities, it just cannot make do without categorization.

At the beginning of it all, back in September 2016, Ellp started out with 6 categories and 8 cards which have now been redefined into 4, covering: Productivity, Performance, Security, and Entertainment, allowing for easy navigation of the cards, which now add up to almost 30 cards. This not only facilitates a better user experience but also increases the visibility of the Ellp cards you really need and want to make use of.

So what do these categories cover?

Taking care of your PC, whilst handling multiple tasks at one go can be a headache at times – to say the least! We’ve all been there, I’m afraid! With the help of categories, you can have peace of mind, as you can easily find and activate the cards you need to perform the tasks for you. Let’s take a look at the 4 categories:

1. Productivity

It is so easy to get stuck wasting time on menial tasks or just wasting time in general, especially on social media. Busted! However, work still needs to be done, and the reality is that with such a busy life we lead, we all wish we could be more productive and get more done in less time. As the saying goes, time is money, so why not get Ellp to help, this way you make better use of your time and believe me, you’ll find yourself soaring through your daily tasks in no time! Here are Ellp’s top 3 productivity cards to help you declutter and increase your productivity, and stay focused:

  • When I’m spending too much time on Facebook, ping me
  • When I download the same file twice, let me know
  • When I download a document, save it to my preferred folder

2. Performance

Sometimes your lack of productivity may not necessarily be your fault, it could be affected by your PC performance. It’s frustrating to get work done when your PC isn’t cooperating – maybe it takes longer to start up and runs slowly or takes an infinite amount of time to perform even the simplest and easiest of tasks. Don’t you worry, Ellp’s got you sorted! These are our top 3 performance cards, but there’s more from where these came from, so go ahead, download Ellp and get the full range.

  • When an application is slowing down my PC startup, alert me
  • When my hard disk is getting full, free up space
  • When it’s time, check my internet speed

3. Security

I guess PC security and privacy is a number one priority on everyone’s list, especially considering the amount of cyber attacks the world has experienced in the past couple of months. No one wants to have their personal credentials, whether bank account details or personal emails or files circling the web for everyone to see. So if you’re worried about having your PC and online activities being compromised, why not try these 2 Ellp cards:

  • When my email is involved in a data breach, alert me
  • When it’s time, perform a privacy cleanup

Best part – there’s no need for you to break the bank, as Ellp is completely free!

The production of security cards takes much longer as this is a more complex task. For the time being, we’ve perfected the 2 cards mentioned above and we’re working on new security cards to be released soon. Stay tuned as they’re going to be awesome!

4. Entertainment

Everyone has his or her own way of chilling out after a hectic a day – maybe a drink after work with friends just to ease that stress or simply chillax at home listening to some music or watching that last episode from your all-time favorite series. With this in mind, we came up with solutions to save you those extra minutes, and jump straight into relaxation mode! that after a busy day can make a difference.

Our reasoning behind the cards is to give the fastest access to whatever you want to do to relax, as those couple extra minutes can make a difference after a busy day!
