Let’s face it. We live in a social world. Thanks to Facebook and Twitter, social has become an integral part of our personal lives. Social applications are making inroads into our professional lives as well. How you might ask?  Companies are leveraging aspects of how we interact on social networks, and implementing them into their products.  One such company comes to mind — Aptonic Software, makers of Frenzy.

Frenzy is a small application that works in conjunction with Dropbox.  Yes, you will need an account with Dropbox to get this software to work. Basically, Frenzy brings a social aspect to sharing links, documents, and snippets of information with your colleagues and friends that you interact with in Dropbox. With Frenzy you can stop the incessant back and forth of emailing links and documents to one another, and start working with each other in real time.

For instance, if you are working on a collaborative project, and you need to send your colleague a few links to a site that has information pertinent to your project,  simply press a keyboard shortcut, and voilà, your links are ready to send.

Better yet, you have just finished doing your part of the write-up. Press a different keyboard shortcut and send your document to the team.  It can’t get any simpler than that.

Moreover, if you don’t have an Internet connection at the time you finish your project, that’s no problem. Because Frenzy uses Dropbox, it will save your document locally. Then when you have an Internet connection, Dropbox will instantly upload and send the file as if you were always connected to the Internet.

With applications like Frenzy, we can be more efficient through social interaction. Communicating in real time like this just goes to prove that email is going to go the way of the dinosaur. So let’s recap. First you will need a Dropbox account. If you don’t have one, you can get a free account by clicking here. Once you are all setup with your Dropbox account, you can download Frenzy by clicking here. So go now and be more productive and efficient with Frenzy!
