What are Items?

The 'Items' tab in the Wakelet app is your go-to spot for collecting and organizing diverse types of multimedia content, ranging from links and images to videos, text, and PDFs. Think of it as a modern take on bookmarks, offering a more versatile platform to store your finds from the internet or direct uploads.

Using a browser extension, you can effortlessly add content to your 'Items' page as you browse the web. The tab isn’t just about storing; it also comes equipped with tools to help you sift through your collection. You can search for specific items using keywords or narrow down your view by the type of content, such as images or links. There's also a neat feature to filter your stash to show everything or just the items you haven't yet sorted into collections, making it easier to organize and find your multimedia treasures.

  3. Type Filters: Check or uncheck these to show just the types of things you want to see:

    • Text: For notes or written bits you've saved.
    • Link: All the web pages you've clipped.
    • Image: Just the photos and graphics.
    • Video: Only the moving pictures show up.

Sort

  1. Last Updated: Select this to bring the most recently modified items to the top. It helps you keep track of what you've changed or added last.

  2. Date (Ascending): Use this to see your items in chronological order, starting with the oldest. It's like walking backward in your digital history.

  3. Date (Descending): This does the opposite. It puts the newest items first, so you're always seeing the latest stuff right away.

  4. Name (A-Z): Click this to sort your items alphabetically from A to Z. It's handy when you know the name of what you're looking for.

  5. Name (Z-A): And if you prefer to go from Z to A, this is your choice. It flips the alphabetical order around.

These sorting options are there to help you find exactly what you need in the way that makes the most sense to you. Whether you're looking for the latest updates, going back in time, or need some alphabetical order in your life, you're covered.
