YourVersion - Discovering your Interests
A collator of personalized web content. YourVersion is supposedly "the best\t way to discover new and relevant content tailored to your interests". Searching everything from videos to blogs, Tweets to websites, and products to news, YourVersion can be your daily source of customized content. Called a "Real-time Discovery Engine" bye the company. YourVersion gives you real-time results/updates not based on your specific interests. It is also significantly different from an RSS reader because it does not rely on your subscriptions to display content, but instead, compiles content real-time based on your interests.

YourVersion has a simple and uncluttered interface. Simply feed in your "interests" when signing up (you can add/delete new interests at any time). and find your real-time listings of the latest relevant content that is filtered by one or all interests. Have a slow Internet connection? Then click on "Condensed View" for an even simpler text-based listing interface.

You can bookmark interesting content on the site itself, and return to it simply and easily, whenever you want. You can also allow the site to auto-organise pages by interest. Sharing is especially easy on YourVersion, allowing for facebook, Twitter, and email-based sharing options, right on the listing page itself. You can also give a thumb rating to each article/piece of content.

Other interesting application of YourVersion are the iPhone app and mobile site, as well as the easy-to use firefox toolbar. For sign-up you can also do it with your Twitter accout.

The site was launched in September 2009 and has won numerous awards at prestigious events.
