Kaboodle

Launched in October 2005, Kaboodle offers an easy way to collect information from the web and also search for things you may be interested in. Kaboodle can be used to collect and share information for shopping, travel, research, or just about anything else. With over 35,000 users, Kaboodle’s user base is relatively small, but the site is young and has much room to grow.

The company has received funding and strong support from such investors as Kanwal Rekhi of Inventus Capital, Junglee founder Ashish Gupta, and co-author of Google’s early search algorithm research Rajeev Motwani.

Kaboodle is a free service that lets users collect information from the web and store it on a Kaboodle list that can be shared with others. The site’s primary use (and pretense on which it was founded) is to simplify shopping by making it easier for people to find items they’re interested in and by allowing users to share recommendations with one another using Kaboodle lists and groups. Kaboodle lists, however, can also serve a variety of purposes besides just shopping. They can be used for planning vacations, sharing research for work or school, sharing your favorite bands with friends, and basically anything else you might want to collect and share information about. Kaboodle makes it easy to create lists by offering downloadable web browser buttons that directly add items to your list from the website you’re browsing. When adding items to your list, Kaboodle also automatically adds a summary of the web page you have saved. Anyone can browse Kaboodle without signing up, but users must register to create lists and use the site’s other features. By allowing users to invite people as friends, Kaboodle makes it easy to connect with other people and share lists with friends as well.
