Save every idea via Collect


What do you do with brilliant ideas, interesting articles or cool websites? Do you take screenshots? Do you record them with the dictaphone app on your smartphone? Or do you write them old-fashioned in a small notebook? Collect is a fun app to organize your ideas. The app is from the makers of WeTransfer and works very intuitively. We are happy to explain how you get started.

Install Collect

Collect by WeTransfer is an app that remembers everything you could forget and that is also completely free. Open the App Store or Google Play and install the application on your smartphone. As soon as you open the application for the first time, you will get a short tour. Then you can get started right away. You don’t even have to create an account if you don’t want to, but then you are somewhat more limited. We recommend that you do that, because then you can also log in on other devices and have your information. Choose Account / Set up your account and follow the instructions.

Boards and items

With Collect you can have both individual ideas (Single items) as collections (Boards). You simply tap on the blue plus sign at the bottom. Then you have a choice from Photos or videos, Camera, Notes, Scan document, Traffic jams and Paste. Once you have made your choice, the relevant app opens: your film roll, camera, a blank note, etc. Do you want to save multiple items on one subject? Then it is handy to have one Board to create. This way you keep everything more manageable.

Saving something costs you two taps.

Share ideas

A very strong asset of Collect is that you can share your saved Boards with others. To do this, go to the relevant collection and then tap Share. You get the choice from View only and Edit and view. Collect creates a unique link that you can share in various ways. Also handy: via Account / Enable share extension create a so-called “share button” on iPhone. With this you can link directly to Collect from all kinds of apps.
