Cortex: A Quick Way to Share Content Online
By Apps / IO, 09 Dec 2010
Another addition to the new Chrome app store is Cortex, one of the most intuitive sharing tools we’ve experienced yet. Instead of clunky buttons or copying-and-pasting URLs into your various social media sites, Cortex is lightweight, quick and invisible.
With the extension, all users have to do to share content is hold their mouse button down. A wheel menu will pop up with the Facebook, Twitter, Instapaper and Tumblr icons. Flicking the mouse to any one of those icons will immediately share the content of the page to the respective sites. And once shared, the wheel disappears.
Cortex automatically chooses the header text as the topic for your post and shortens URLs. Individual images and segments of text can also be pulled out.
The app was created by ex-Googler Joey Primiani, who told Mashable, "Learning from building successful products at Google, I love focusing on things people use on a daily basis."
