Trackle is the Cool, Smart and Innovative competitor of Google Alerts, Yotify and Alerts.com. Trackle is personalized web scout that can help cull the web for any topic and bring the latest information to you. The diverse range of information that it can track makes it a very unique site. Trackle can track the crime in your neighborhood, update you on the latest price of any item on the Internet and alert you when your favourite iTune, books or movies are available. Not only this, there are few dozens of categories that you can chose and trackle for updates.
Trackle out perform its rivals in the sheer amount of categories it can track and maintain a very organized alert system. Trackle will ensure that there is no repetition of alerts and hence the precious time of its users is not wasted by duplicate alerts. The tracklets can be created by giving any keywords to a single group of tracklets.
I created my tracklet for the key word of TechNama to keep an eye on the websites and blogs that discuss us. I have been using Google Alerts but i think the Trackle interface is much friendly then the other traditional rivals. The amazing thing about Trickle is that it can give you alerts through a variety of modes including e mail and SMS. Users can enable an sms based alert to get notified while being on the go.
Now a one negative point of Trackle. The additional features will not be applicable to you if you are residing outside US. So a person like me can sit back and relax and wait for the Trackle team to provide the same services in the other regions of the world.

Trackle has received seed funding by NEA (New Enterprise Associates) and other angel investors.
Trackle plans to make it the essential alert system for the web. They plan to get it sticked on all the websites and users can click it to get the alerts for the site just like the traditional RSS links. Since the alerts are in real time and offers variety of other functionalities, we see a strong potential in the idea.
