Richmond, IN (PRWEB) September 08, 2011

A new update to CurationSoft, version 1.0.3, was released recently which includes several new features for content curators from bloggers to news organizations.

Updates include:

-Search, review, and drag-and-drop news stories from Google News. Like YouTube, Twitter, Flickr, and Google Blog Search, users can grab content from Google News to include in their curation posts.

-Related keywords (recommend post tags): Now, when users do a search, they’ll be sent a list of related keywords for blog posts. These are based on actual related searches performed in the search engines so there’s traffic for these terms.

-A Social Progress Monitor: There is a new social element to CurationSoft which allows users to share their progress with the world. Now users will be able to see how many posts they’ve made with CurationSoft and have the opportunity to share on Facebook and Twitter.

Several other upgrades include better scrolling through results, a copy/paste feature in addition to drag-and-drop, and a few bug fixes.

“This is a major update to the software,” says CurationSoft developer Brandon Hall. “We’ve responded to a good amount of user feedback on features they’d like to see in the software.”

As to where the software is headed, “We’re looking at a number of new features in our coming updates which will help users make their curated content look great as well as adding new sources of news, images, and other content,” says Jack Humphrey, CEO of CurationSoft.

CurationSoft has also released a trial version which is fully unlocked for 14 days, giving bloggers and news curators a chance to take the software for a test run.
