Grouply strives to become the Friendfeed of online groups by aggregating all of the different groups you belong to on sites such Yahoo Groups and Google Groups. The concept is excellent because it saves a great deal of time and effort by allowing you to keep up with all of your messages and groups from a single centralized place. See image below.
The Grouply Smart Digesttm delivers a daily personalized email summarizing new messages across all your groups. It highlights messages of interest and intelligently summarizes message conversations
Centralized Group Calendar
One of the best features is the way Grouply manages all of the different calendars and appointments that you have spread out across your different groups and services.
Grouply provides fast, easy-to-use search of messages across all your groups. Quickly refine your results by group, message type, tags (topics), and rating. And you can save your search to create your own custom lists and trigger alerts. You can quickly search, browse, and bookmark messages across all your groups.
In our ever-increasing volume of data in the information age, an aggregator for groups is an excellent tool to have available to us. Hopefully Grouply will provide support for other group services out there and perhaps for message forums as well.
