1. What is Roohit?

Roohit is your online collection: enables you to highlight any web page, and

  • Automatically Collects and saves them for you.
  • You can Share them with anyone - including people that are not using Roohit.
  • Socially Discover highlights matching your interests.

 

2. How does it work?

Simple load the application or type http://www.rooh.it/ prior to a URL. Once loaded, you can highlight text by clicking and dragging your cursor. A URL is generated that links to the webpage you are currently viewing that you can share.


 

3. How does it benefit me?

We make webpages more easily viewable. You can get to the heart of the page with little effort. No need to scroll up and down for what you're looking for. See a highlighted text and know that's what you want.


 

4. How do I get it?

Drag and add the bookmark to the top of your bookmark bar. Alternatively, you can type http://www.rooh.it/ prior to the URL. There is no installation needed and it's absolutely free!


 

5. How does the email feature work?

 

You can email an entirely displayed article complete with highlights.You can also choose to just email a tinyURL (such as http://rooh.it/UnlockIPhone) that will link back to the main article, complete with all highlights visible.


 

6. Why can't I see my Bookmarks Toolbar?

Go to the "View" menu and select "Toolbars." Check the "Bookmarks Toolbar" option. Turn on Bookmarks Toolbar.


 

7. Why do I need to add the button?

You don't, however the button makes it even easier to start highlighting. You can type in roohit.com before any URL (such as roohit.com/yahoo.com) and invoke the highlighter. The button merely types in roohit.com making it even easier for you.


 

8. Does the button affect my browser or my computer?

Adding the button to your Bookmarks Toolbar is not a download and therefore does not affect how your computer runs in any way. The button simply activates the highlighter on your current URL.


 

9. If there is no sign-up, how am I able to store and access my personal collection of highlights?

Rooh.it's powerful technology allows you to store and access highlights, on any browser or computer, by using your existing Facebook account.
