Hojoki pulls all your files, posts and events from different cloud apps into one place. you can then edit and organize them, or move them around.
Hojoki also lets you create ‘workspaces’ where you can plan holidays, or work on projects with lots of people without having to give them access to files spread across accounts.
For example, you could have an itinerary saved in Google drive, an event planned in Google calendar, a conversation on twitter, reminders in ever note and photos in Dropbox and, with Hojoki, your friends and family can see all the relevant files from just one link.
If you connect to Hojoki using your Google account, or Facebook, you will also get the option to see what your friends have been up to on the different sites – but only what they have set as public. You can also sign up using email and add people manually. Hojoki is available as an android and iOS app, too.
