What can you use the app for?

Femtoo enables users to track changes on a website they wish to follow. The application works by providing monitoring tools which the user sets up for their chosen website. Once the tracker has been created, the user can choose notification settings. Femtoo will check for updates as frequently as every 30 minutes. The application will monitor for keywords so users can check for specific criteria, such as a stock price or headline on a certain subject. Femtoo is web based so no installation or download is required. Users can also choose between numerous notification methods, including direct email, the Notifo mobile notification service, instant messenger, a URL call back or an email distribution list. Femtoo is able to track HTML and text web pages and offers support in multiple languages, including English, Chinese, Japanese, Russian and Greek.

How does the web app look and feel to use?

The Femtoo website welcomes users with a dark color scheme and green and blue text. The site is kept very simple, with wide open sides that give it a very neat and clean appearance. Setting up a tracker is very simple. The user logs in and adds the URL to the submission field. Femtoo loads the page so the user can see it before moving on to tracking set up. Users can also add labels to each tracker so they can stay organized when monitoring multiple websites. Unfortunately, Femtoo is buggy most of the times.

How does the registration process work?

A visitor can sign up for a Femtoo account by clicking on the blue “Register” link in the upper, right hand corner of the page. The following page asks the user for a valid email address and password. After supplying the information, the user can click the blue “Click to Get Started” link just below the data entry fields. The next page invites the user to upgrade to a Solo account. Users can also click the blue “Create a New Tracker Now” link at the bottom of the page to get started.

What does it cost to use the application?

Femtoo offers its users three membership options to choose from. The first is a free membership which is automatically chosen when the user first signs up. The free membership includes up to three trackers, 100 checks per month, 12 hour checks, rules, filters, number conversions as well as email, instant message and call back notification options. Next is a Solo plan which costs around $2 per month and upgrades to include unlimited trackers, up to 10,000 checks per month, checks every 30 minutes, RSS feed tracker, tracker history, stats and reports and up to five additional notification email addresses per tracker. The Premium membership costs around $5 per month and upgrades to include up to 30,000 checks per month and up to 1,000 additional notification email addresses per tracker.

Who would you recommend the application to?

Femtoo is a tool for anyone who needs to track a website or a specific keyword. Users can set up trackers and receive notifications in many ways. Femtoo also gives users a way to set up a quick distribution list so their followers, clients or others can receive notifications each time their website is updated. The service is too buggy to recommend.
