Bundlr is a new curation tool and can it be better than Storify?

I wrote this article about Bundlr, a new curation tool ready to be launched created by two young Portuguese developers. In their words:

Bundlr is a new and free tool for online curation: clipping, aggregation and sharing web content easily.

We’re afoot with an information overload. New sources and mediums are emerging and each specialist is finding his way through all being published online. But we’re lacking the tools to quickly select the best we find on the web, organize and share it.

With Bundlr you can create bundles of any kind of content: articles, photos, videos, tweets and links. Cover real-time breaking news from your sources. Wrap up an event with a collection of online feedback. Build a page where you pick the most relevant content on your area of expertise.

Using Bundlr browser button, you can clip content while you browse the Internet. Just press the button to save the content you want, and the meta-data around it, to the bundle you pick. Each bundle will have its own public webpage you can share freely. In later features you’ll be able to filter clips, create visualizations and embed bundles on any website.

Reminds you of Storify? Check both videos and spot the differences. I prefer Bundlr in many ways (i had a sneak preview) and besides being more attractive visually, it brings more interesting features. It can be used by journalists or any one else who wants to aggregate online content in one single page (in their terms, bundle).

Visit their website and subscribe for a beta invitation.

What do you think? Can Bundlr compete with Storify?
