CL1P is a web app that allows users to share and collaborate on documents.
Today’s offering – CL1P – is one more web app that does just one thing but does it very well. In this case, the one thing is document sharing. In other words, one user can type out or paste in some text which can be seen, copied and edited by others.
There are lots of other apps which will do the same sort of thing (most notably, Google Docs) but it’s CL1P simplicity that separates it from the rest. 3 effortless steps are all that’s needed to create a sharable document.
To begin, simply access the CL1P home page and create a unique URL beginning with “http://cl1p.net/” . What comes after the “.net/” is the user choice. For example, I created the URL, “http://cl1p.net/detools” to try this app out. I could just as easily have created, “http://cl1p.net/teched”, “http://cl1p.net/hockey” or “http://cl1p.net/literature12″
Once the URL has been created, the user enters some text into a large text box. The text can be typed in or copied and pasted in.
The final step is to communicate the URL (Via Email, Twitter, SMS Text message, Facebook, etc.) to the other folks who are collaborating on the text. They only need to click on the link and they are in. They can edit, modify, add, or copy. If the document is sensitive, password protection can be added. The document can also be made non-editable so that group members can read and copy but not modify or change. The document remains available for 8 days.
Bottom line? I like CL1P. It’s easy to use but has enough functionality to be adaptable for a number of situations.
The site is free to use and no sign-up is required although accounts are available.
