Getting Started with EnThinnai

EnThinnai is your front porch on the web. You can use EnThinnai to exchange notes with your buddies; you can share files with them; you can get your buddies' contact information; you can share your availability status information; and we will be adding more functionalities incrementally. You can use EnThinnai strictly in a private mode; in this case all of the information you store in EnThinnai will not be shared with any one. But the power of the application is when you would like to share portions of your data with some of your buddies. For this you need to add your buddies to the buddy list by identifying their Open IDs.

Once you have created a buddy list, you can decide to group them; you can set/change your availability status specific to an individual buddy, a group or globally. You can create Notes (like email, but better ' no spam); you can share files and finally you can share your contact information.
