Hopper – Save Your Stuff

Most people use more than just a single computer terminal these days. From iPhones to laptops, tablets to desktop PCs, there seems to be no limit to the number of devices that a single user can have. Hopper is a tool that helps people seamlessly transfer files from device to device.

Say goodbye to your USB flash drive. Once you sign up for Hopper, you’ll never need to save a file on a flash drive or a burned CD again. Instead, just grab the Hopper bookmarklet tool and drag it into the toolbar of whichever Internet browsers you currently use. Once you’ve got the bookmarklet in place, you can click it any time you want to save something you see online in your Hopper account. Hopper also lets you save links, text, images, and files by pressing command + v, dragging and dropping files into a special folder on your computer, emailing files to [email protected]om, or tweeting @SaveToHopper on Twitter.

The files and images you save to Hopper are accessible no matter what computer or web-enabled device you’re using. Hopper will automatically organize the files you’ve stored, making it easy to find the right image or link on demand. Search through files by word, date, or file type. You can also add notations to certain files and share the documents you’ve stored on Hopper by using a special link that Hopper provides.

  • Save all your favorite bookmarks online
