At the same start of this and similar tools, which peak into the history of your surfing always arises the question; Security! How much Genieo is reliable when visit protected web sites?
Genieo is also automatically disabled when you come to a secure web site or online transactions or other places that require extra security.
Genieo is not a classic Windows application which should be part of the reviews dedicated to the interface, but we'll make an exception because the purpose of this tool is that it's constantly bringing up a new relevant information and therefore we spend a lot of time watching and reading the same articles.
It is suffice to say that the creators of Genieo arranged very simple but also very nicely user interface, so they say, "A newspaper styled homepage". So that any long wandering and searching for the tool and it's options would not make any sense.
We will also look back at feature called "Your Personal Magazine“. What is that?
"Your Personal Magazine" gives you the opportunity to create personal news papers of already created products and information that are displayed on the homepage. "Your Own Magazine" you can share with your friends, which has a very modern interface in which his envied some relevant news portals.
With this option, you have the possibility of creating some kind of your website that you share with friends, but here you will save a lot of time, where Genieo ensures that all updates are available on time.
• Easy to use: Genieo will do all the work just for you
• Simple, clean and user-friendly interface
• Create a homepage automatically
• Very accurate: finds what you like
• Can take a while to create the homepage after installation
• There is no option to add the feed manually. We think that the authors of this tool should seriously consider introducing this feature called "Add Feed" or some similar name, where we as customers get one additional option, and Genieo got an additional plus.
Genieo is definitely a strong alternative for the tools of similar purposes such as iGoogle. With some minor changes and amendments Genieo definitely deserves its place in the "war" tools of similar purpose. For all those who have a habit to browse the internet news on regularly basis.
