SAN FRANCISCO –TECHCRUNCH50 CONFERENCE –SEPTEMBER 14, 2009– The team at
ATTAP Technologies, Inc. (All Things To All People) is launching the public beta of lifeIO (www.lifeio.com), a new “Personal Portal” application. lifeIO is a Personal Information Platfrom that simply and flexibly aggregates and integrates all of the elements of your daily online life in a single browser window – mail, chat, social networks, calendar, to-dos, notes, contacts, RSS, and shopping. In an exponentially growing and fragmented information stream, lifeIO easily aggregates, filters, organizes, stores and displays what you need, want, and are interested in in real time – in an easy to use, customizable interface, accessible in any browser on your computer or phone.
lifeIO is the brainchild of Bruce Spector, founder & CEO of ATTAP, a New York City-based developer of web-based software aimed at helping to fulfill the promise of the web. "We're all overwhelmed with daily information, notifications and content from many different sources. lifeIO offers a simple way to streamline all of that and display what I want and need in a single browser window from anywhere," says Spector. “We‟ve built lifeIO to become the „Swiss Army Knife‟ of web applications.”
