    Hi Zeje2100
     
    Upload a file
    I assume, you have installed the toolbar from http://usekit.com/extensions.
    “Add Context” gives you the ad-hoc possibility to keep something together in a context. If you enter the word “usability” it should ask you: “create usability?”
    From know on you can store new entries with one single click in “usability”.
     
    Share something
    Sharing is different than a URL shortener. For exmaple you have the context “usability” with a link of http://startuplift.com stored. Now you can invite new people to the context in http://usekit.com/context and they see everything what is already stored and become notified of new entries. This reduces emails that you have to keep and binds context specific entries together.
     
    Usability and design
    You are right, we kept everything very simple and with reduces colors because we want to stay in the background and let you focusing on your content.
    But, I guess a bit more colorfulness wouldn’t harm.
     
    Could you describe useKit in 5 sentences? And how?
    We see useKit more as a collaboration platform, that let you focus on content instead of people as most other platforms.
     
     
    Would you use it and what for? And would you pay for the service?
    We are currently in the progress of improving design and simplicity and don’t see us as competition against facebook and others. We want to put content and it’s context in the center and bind the communication to it.
     
    Thank you very much for your comments, they are very valuable.
    Sven, CEO of useKit

    Possibly share something with a friend/co-worker. How was the process?
    You are right about the gender, meanwhile we changed our message to something more neutral.
     
    What do you think about the usability? What should we improve?
    You are right, we kept everything very simple and with reduces colors because we want to stay in the background and let you focusing on your content.
    But, I guess a bit more colorfulness wouldn’t harm.
     
    Could you describe useKit in 5 sentences? And how?
    Good comments, thank you. We see useKit more as a collaboration platform, that let you focus on content instead of people as most other platforms. We differ from email in the sense, that we do not directly communicate between people but rather store content on the platform and comment around those files, links, videos and more. If more people join the team, you can invite them and they have immediate access to everything.
     
    Thank you very much for your comments, we are working hard to make it more simple to use.

    Thank you very much.

    There is indeed an faq page, but apparently it should be easier to access it.

    Please let me know, if these errors still exist when you try to upload something.

    Best,
