Recently Netvibes had the pleasure of taking part in the Samsung Developer’s Conference in San Francisco. There we announced our partnership with Samsung’s ARTIK Cloud–a relationship that expands the power of Netvibes Potions to even more devices, consumers and businesses. With the integration of ARTIK into Netvibes, you will soon be able to connect any ARTIK-supported device to the Netvibes dashboard and create Potions using those ingredients.
At the event, Netvibes CTO Florent Solt demonstrated Potions in action using an iHealth oximeter device, connected to Netvibes via ARTIK. Watch the demo video below:
Samsung’s ARTIK Cloud supports a wide variety of smart devices and apps, including the Runkeeper app, iHealth oximeter, Fitbit, and other wearables. By bringing together ARTIK as the data collection layer and Netvibes as the automation layer, Netvibes and Samsung are empowering users to do more with the Internet of Things.
This integration enables the creation of new types of Netvibes Potions, as demonstrated in the video. For example, you can create Potions like:
Pulse recording — A runner is training for the marathon and wants to record her heart metrics over time. She connects her wearable device, an iHealth oximeter, to Netvibes via ARTIK Cloud and creates a Potion to automatically log the recordings.
Potion: When I take a measurement with my iHealth oximeter, then automatically record my blood oxygen reading and pulse rate in a Google spreadsheet.
Going a step further, the runner can also track trends in her running over time. With Netvibes’ unique Trend-Tracing Triggers, Potions can also support complex data triggers, using historical data and predictive analytics. Example Potion: When I run 10k for five days in a row, then post my achievement on Facebook and Twitter.
This is only the tip of the iceberg, as users will soon be able to control any ARTIK-linked device or app through Netvibes.
Try the magic for yourself! Log in to your Netvibes dashboard to create your own Potion now. To learn more, read about Potions on our FAQ page.

As you may know, you can follow and read articles from any website using your Netvibes dashboard. Simply add the site’s RSS feed. For websites that do not offer RSS, you can use a service like Kimono Labs or Feedity to create your own RSS feed. On Monday, February 29, Kimono Labs is shutting down its service, but you can continue to use Feedity with Netvibes. Here’s how it works.
If you are currently using Kimono Labs to import articles to Netvibes, please be aware that your feeds will stop working on February 29, 2016. (More details on Kimonolabs.com). You will need to use an alternative service, like Feedity, to continue following non-RSS websites on your dashboard.
How to use Feedity with Netvibes
Feedity is easy to use and allows you to turn any website into an RSS feed that you can read through Netvibes.
1. Sign up for an account on Feedity.com.

We salute Odiogo’s initiative to provide to our large community, of both individual users and corporations, an innovative and convenient way to access the content of their Netvibes dashboards.” (Freddy Mini, CEO of Netvibes)

This Odiogo technology combined with Netvibes dashboards, allows users to create their personalized audio news bulletin with the news sources that they trust. Also, the audio feature proves itself to be extremely convenient for visually impaired users or for those experiencing difficulties reading on a small screen, as well as for language learners.” (Marc Kawam, CEO of Odiogo)

Emakina, the European digital agencies group, joins forces with Netvibes, the pioneer in data aggregation and a key player in the Dashboard Intelligence, as part of a strategic partnership to effectively connect brand reputation, activation and trade marks.
At a time when more than one consumer in two relies on the opinions of Internet users in their purchasing decision, Emakina is more than ever convinced that it is essential to follow the threads around its brand. These convictions were put together in a White Paper on Attention Marketing published by Emakina in 2010 and downloaded thousands of times.
Given the scale of online reputation technologies, Emakina partners with Netvibes to initiate, as from September, a rational approach with a CRM & ROI offer. This turnkey solution will include the most powerful tools in terms of monitoring, social networks activation and associated traffic analysis.
Manuel Diaz, CEO of Emakina. FR, “It is essential to simplify the management of reputation and monitoring for all brands and advertisers. With Netvibes, we share the same vision on Intelligence Dashboard, so this partnership is evident.“
Freddy Mini, CEO of Netvibes, “In the same way that one does not become an accountant with accounting software, it is unrealistic to believe that a monitoring tool on a shelf will answer all questions about reputation on the Internet . Our offer is based on an accompanied and personalized service, Emakina is an ideal partner that combines proximity and a guarantee of satisfaction for our mutual customers.“
