What do you like best?

Writers are a meandering bunch. Their way of researching often takes them down rabbit holes as they find something interesting, get distracted by something shiny and then find themselves with a new source or quote or idea. Sorc'd allows writers and knowledge managers to wander and not just leave a trail of browser cookies--it lets writers collect the nuggets on the fly. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The product continues to evolve. New integrations with the leading writing software make it a great tool. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

These writer/researcher efficiency scissors belong in every writer's digital toolkit. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Strange as it may sound, I like the idea that it's there---even though I haven't really used it yet. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I don't like the automatic pop up tab when I open my browser. I also find the page that does pop up rather busy, which deters me from wanting to dive in and learn more. I would prefer it were a simple step 1, step 2, step 3 that shows how to use sorc'd. OR, it would be great if it could say "hey, you visit this site frequently, here's how sorc'd would work on that site." Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Get a good understanding of what you need it for first, so you don't just have it laying around for the sake of it. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I think I will start using it so I can bring up articles while recording podcasts. I want to publish more written content on Medium.com as well, and could use Sorc'd to help write the articles. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Sorc'd allows me to manage my browser bookmarks to allow individual content snippets rather than whole pages/sites. It's great for developers who may want to reference code snippets but don't have a central repository for them. I also found it extremely useful for resume writing and job searching as I can save snippets of job descriptions I like/want to follow up on. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I like the idea of private content but think the premium price is a bit high to justify trying it out. If there were a limited amount of private snippets I. The free account I might find them useful enough to justify the cost. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Use it and you will find many applications where it will save time. I've found that it benefits me in ways that I didn't realize it would. I knew it would be a very useful tool as advertised but until I adopted it into my own personal workflows, I didn't realize it's real benefits to me. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Time savings are huge. Not having to dig through my browser history or bookmarks save an incredible amount of time. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

I really like the fact that I can use Socr'd to store information that I repeatedly use for quick, correctly formatted reuse in Google Docs.

Oh, and team Sorc'd has always provided fast and courteous support. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The only thing that I currently would like to see in Sorc'd is to be able to keep links inside my Sorc'd snippets active. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

It's a great and flexible tool that integrates well into Google Docs. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I have solved productivity problems with Sorc'd. I am able to access and reuse information without having to create the same thing again and again. It is Sorc'd integration with Google Docs that has made this particularly effective. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

As a content marketer that often creates in-depth, data-focused reports and long-form content, Sorc'd has proven a valuable tool that allows me to quickly and easily snip relevant data and statistics -- and it fits seamlessly into my workflow. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The one downside I've found is the character limit on snippets. While it makes sense in theory, I sometimes need to save quotes or larger snippets that exceed these space limitations. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Sorc'd makes the process of compiling data from a variety of sources simple for content marketers. It saves me time that I'd otherwise spend clicking back and forth between apps to compile relevant information for content. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Thanks for the review Angela. Yes the character cap is highly debated! Our goal was to keep users focused on the important pieces of an article. Keep sending your feedback to feedback@sorcd.com we are always looking for ways to improve.

What do you like best?

I like that SORC'D seamlessly integrates with my research process and that all my clippings show up in the same place without a hassle based off of my tags. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The Google Docs integration that SORC'd has could be a lot better, as could the browser integration. Sometimes there were crashes or slowdowns. I only stopped using SORC'd because of these Google docs issues. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Don't be afraid to reach out for help because their support is really awesome! Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

SORC'd makes forming literature reviews and other bibliographies much, much, much faster. Before SORC'd, it might have taken me hours to do the same kind of cutting and pasting of snippets, and it would have been much more disorganized. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

I love how easy it is to share something right from the moment of you setting it up. I also like how it automates it all for you without you having to go the extra mile. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

It does not integrate with HubSpot's URL tracking feature, therefore, I would not have all my analytics in one place. We use tracking links from HubSpot to track our engagement with our social media posts, and since it doesn't integrate and automatically give you that as an option, I do not use it. I wish I could though. If that was a feature, then I would be using it more. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Integrations with HubSpot's URL tracking system so all the results created by Sorc'd can be in one platformand area that we can view as a whole. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Great for when doing research on the fly. It provides an great way to categorize, store and find snippets of relevant information. Here I can save small bits of information I find interesting to a private cloud-based environment. This way I spend less time doing research. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I don't like the automatic pop tab or the premium price as well as the character limit on snippets. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Sorc'd is great for keeping track of the voluminous amount of research I do and consolidating them all into an easy to access location. This has cut down a lot of the time I spend on research in making the process more efficient. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

I like the community the best. So far, there are like-minded folks sharing snippets of interesting content that's just a bite size of info, enough to get you interested in a topic. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I'd like for sorc'd to have a few more features that other sites like this don't have. Perhaps a OneNote integration. Or if it could be used with Zapier of IFTTT, that would be useful too. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

-Streamlined research process when producing content in some instances because relevant articles and statistics were tagged and shared with other team members

-Could save a lot of time hunting around for particular bits of research Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

-Really dependent on how much you and your team put into it, if people aren't regularly sharing articles and research they come across, the platform starts to lose its value Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

-Supporting content with validated research and statistics, which can be a time-consuming process to hunt around for

What do you like best?

As a writer, I am constantly researching topics online. I usually end up with so many tabs open--it can be hard to organize it all. I really like that Sorc'd lets me save quotes from each article in one place. It's much more efficient than my traditional copy & pasting method between Word and Google docs. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Organization has always been a challenge for me. I would like if Sorc'd had some visual examples of how a writer with excellent organization would use this. I.e. suggestions for naming conventions with tags to sort through different projects. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Definitely worth a test run if you do a lot of research online or frequently pull information from across the web. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

The strength of a productivity tool can be measured by how intuitive it is, and how seamlessly it addresses a paint point that you've long felt the need to address.
