GREAT FILE MANAGEMENT APPS YOU SHOULD CONSIDER

You’ve ever been to the library or study of a person who lived in the early twentieth century? Then, you would be sure to see a lot of documents and books stacked in corners. Well, this was because stacking and storing, that was the only way to file management. But now, the case is different. It is rarely possible to see people exchange ideas or information via hard copy files. Rather, most information are usually online. People write and send files to one another via email, whatsapp and what have you. Indeed, this is an excellent improvement, considering the fact that it saves trees, paper and it definitely saves space. But having a lot of file on your laptop or phone can be overwhelming. This is especially if you are one who deals with a lot of documents. Most people have their files scattered all over their devices.

And honestly, trying to find a form or file on your laptop can be very maddening. This is even not the real problem. Because whatever electronic devices we use are susceptible to damage and failure. Most people eventually lose very vital files and information. Passwords, certifications etc, can easily be lost. So, how can one possibly save these and keep them safe for as long as possible? Well, the answer is simple, by saving them on the cloud. So, what does this means? This simply means you get them to be on virtual space. So that whatever happens to your personal devices, you still have your files in check. Now, there are certain apps that helps you do just that. And here they are,

  1. Google Keep

This is a viable way of keeping your files and passwords and everything else. By registering with Google Keep, you have a personal place where you can copy an paste your details and open them on your discretion. So, without your password, no one can access your documents.

2. Color Note

Color Note is yet another app where you can keep things you don’t want any other person to see. With a strong password, all your documents are safe. And even if you lose your phone, you can simply install the app on your new phone and get your things back.

3. Telegram

Although a social media platform, Telegram is one app that enables you to store and keep things safely. For every Telegram account, you can have your own personal account, that is only meant to store in your information. And the good thing is whatever happens, your Telegram account always stays secure. So, you can easily retrieve your documents.

4. Google Docs

This is yet another excellent file management app from Google. It has so many features. Not only can you compose on it, you can save and share in whatever file format you want. And your files are automatically saved on Google Drive once you are online.

5. Email

You know what they say, the best place to keep anything is in your email. Going ahead to save certain information in the draft of your email is not so much a bad idea. But please, do make sure you do not leak your password to someone you don’t trust. And do log out of your email as soon as you are done. Also, remember to sort out the information on your email. The fact that you receive a whole lot of other messages can be confusing.

VTpass Profiles: The History of Website Development

Once, Bill Gates once said something about how “the internet is becoming the town square for the global village of tomorrow. Of course, the word ‘internet’ here does not refer to some abstract line of operations. It has more to do with the virtual constructions that parade its space. Now, these virtual constructions are what we call website development. These websites created across various planes and places come together to form the powerful force the internet is this day.

So, these websites make things happen literally. Like say, you want to check up on some information, you just have to go to www.google.com or wikipedia.com. Or you want to converse on social media, then you visit facebook.com; twitter.com etc. or you use their app. In fact, you also want to pay your bills without leaving home or work, then you can log on to www.vtpass.com. On vtpass.com, you get to pay your daily bills, electricity bills, tv subscriptions and data inclusive.

With these long row of opportunities provided by websites, you would want to know the long and enduring history of website developments. That is, how alphabets and codes have come all this way to make our lives better. Well, here is a briefing.

The internet was born in 1969. But at that time, there was no such thing as the internet. You could say not lots of people saw the need for it.

It was only twenty years later, that is in 1989, that the first website came about.

At that time, the websites were just raw HTML data whose servers were simple HTTP daemons. It took quite a lot of work to publish it on the net.

By 1994, the now popular websites got their place online. We had websites like Amazon, Yahoo, Netscape etc. Many common folks, as well as media personalities, still had issues understanding how it worked, especially the use of ‘at’ (@). The programming language used then was FTP. But from 1997-2000, PHP, a programming language purposely meant for developing websites walked in. By this time, about a million organisations and people were enlisted with the “wired world”. The whole idea of dot.coms started getting vibes. And more website builders like Drupal were released.

The wide and wild boon of the Wifi in 2002 further foregrounded the use of the internet.

And as more businesses demanded the use of the internet to manage enterprises, the internet evolved from a monologue to a dialogue. It became a two-way communication stream. Websites now had developers devoted to building them from the scratch. But these developers had the challenge of managing servers.

This challenge solved it slowly, the first step was the release of iPhone 1 in 2007. Now, people started to see the future in cloud computing. With the launch of Github.com in 2009 came a lot of decentralised environments and servers. Also, many website strata started upgrading their system. An example is Pantheon. And with the whole idea of Multi-Cloud Development being put together by them, there are no limitations to creating websites. And now over millions and millions of websites now live on the internet, providing information and solutions for the global space.

One such solution on the internet comes from the stable of VTpass.
