Cool Tool: BoostHQ

Tuesday, September 3, 2019

BoostHQ, formerly known as Slyng, is an iOS, Android, and web-based app that enables users to share content for free by pushing information to select people in their network. You can share your work, such as PDFs and videos, to larger audiences or create collaborative small groups, which is perfect for discussing thoughts and experiences with fellow employees and saving the knowledge gathered for future reference.

The app grants you the ability to offer varying permissions to each member of your group. You can also source content from any resource, organize it into a channel, and then push the content to your employees. One helpful feature is that it gives you feedback so you can see which content is and isn't resonating with employees. Also, users can add comprehension checklists to content to outline key takeaways for learners.


Boost HQ is desktop- and mobile-friendly, and transitioning back and forth between media is no trouble, although using Google Chrome is most effective. The platform is also compatible with Google Docs. Depending on your preference, push notifications can also be set up.
