Last week on Web.Appstorm we looked at Typeform, an app for creating forms. Forms are key to great user communication about everything from how your site should be structured to where you should be focusing your work. Typeform has completely reinvented the way online forms work, making the process of filling in forms fun.

David Okuniev is the product leader at Typeform, and has kindly given his time to talk to us. In this interview, David discusses the origins of Typeform as well as looking at what the future may hold for their team. Read on to see our conversation and learn how Typeform really came to be what it is today. Also, we’ve got some Typeform invites, so if you’d like to get one, keep reading to see how you can be one of the first to try it out.

Customer support can be an incredibly tricky thing to get right. You need to be quick enough to respond to your customers – or potential customers – while being efficient enough that providing support doesn’t bankrupt your business. Just keeping up with all the emails, and keeping everyone’s issues straight, is enough to make it difficult.

However, users don’t just send you feedback by email anymore. Your feedback is bound to be coming in from email, Twitter, Facebook, and that is the confusing part. Messages are coming in from a variety of sources and you need to check each one individually — an arduous task for the majority of us.

Reamaze is an app which aims to re-invent tech support and help you on your way. This is a new customer support platform which collects everything which has been sent to your site – no matter how it’s been sent. It processes this data and shows it to you in one easy-to-understand format. Let’s take a look.

Most of us have a lot we need to do each day. We need a way to record everything that needs to be done, and be reminded with our tasks are due. In the past, people would have used a diary or a notepad, but nowadays we need something more sophisticated to keep up with our bustling lives.

For a while now, I have been looking for the best app for this, and while there’s many nice ones, I never could find the perfect app for me. That is, until a few weeks ago I discovered Cloudship, an app which looked as good as it performed — for me this was the perfect application.

Two weeks on and I’m using Cloudship everyday to manage and organize my everyday life. Read on to find out where Cloudship can fit into your everyday life.

eBook reading apps have become very popular since the introduction of the tablet, and have transformed our devices into a personal library wherever you go. It started with the Kindle device, but since then, there’s hardly a mobile device that doesn’t come with an eBook reading app. For me, I have never seen the appeal of eBooks, and I prefer to have a physical book in my hands. However, there is a division of eBooks which have recently taken my interest — eTextbooks.

Being a student, textbooks are something which I need to carry at all times and use everyday for support in lectures and revision sessions. Carrying around tons of heavy books isn’t what I want to do. With access to the internet everywhere, eTextbooks allow me to quickly get on the web and view my specific books quick and easy.

In this article I’m going to look at the best three textbooks apps available on the web: Chegg, CourseSmart and NOOK Study. Read on to find out the possibilities with these three apps.

Running a website which is making money is hard. While trying to manage products, prices and profit you also need to look at specific orders which are going to be most beneficial towards your business’ revenue. However, normal forms seem to only allow customers to tell you small amounts of information.

Expanding this form further and giving customers the ability to personalize their needs to you would be something which is highly beneficial. This in turn would allow you to prioritize these certain customers and maximize your profit. Convertable is a web app which achieves this difficult task in a simple and reasonably priced package.

Once upon a time, celebrities were only found on the television or in movies. Stars appeared everywhere and influenced our everyday well being – but only from a distance, on the TV or in glossy magazines. However, while this form of celebrity still exists, there’s a new way to be come a celebrity today: YouTube.

In a (dark) corner of YouTube there is the world of Vlogging, where people from all over the world post videos explaining what’s happening in their lives to the general public. YouTubers such as Alex Day, Charlie McDonnell, Dan Howell and Phil Lester have aced this skill — attracting thousands upon thousands of viewers to watch their lives unfold. Then there’s the many musicians that have launched their entire careers based on a single they released on YouTube – even Justin Bieber started out on YouTube.

Now that these people make a living out of YouTube and are placing their impression on a huge majority of people, has our conception of “fame changed”? Read on to find out more!

There’s many ways to sell stuff online, but if you’ve decided you want to sell stuff directly from your own site, you’ve still got to figure out how exactly to do that. You could run a dedicated eCommerce platform on your site, or perhaps add it with a plugin like WooCommerce. The simplest way, though, is with a hosted shopping cart service.

In this roundup I’m going to look at three of the best hosted shopping carts available: eJunkie, AmberCart and Cashie Commerce. Each one has its own pro’s and con’s, and hopefully though this article you’ll be able to find the one that is right for you. Let’s dig in.

Over the past few weeks on Web.Appstorm, I’ve covered two web apps which have really impressed me: Pixlr and PhotoRaster. Both of these are photo editing web apps that are powerful and easy to use. After raving about these apps in separate reviews, I decided it was time for a comparison so we can find which is the best online photo editor.

If you’ve read my review of Pixlr, you’ll know that it is split into three different apps. Thus, we will be looking at Pixlr Advanced, the editor which is most similar to that of PhotoRaster’s. Read on to find out which app we like the best!

If you would like to read the separate reviews of Pixlr and PhotoRaster, check out these links: Pixlr: Simple Filters to Advanced Editing, and Photo Raster: An Advanced Online Photo Editor.

Last month on Web.Appstorm, I looked at PhotoRaster, an advanced online photo editor which really impressed us. Today, we have another web app called Pixlr, which is another twist on online photo editing.

While PhotoRaster, like most image editing apps, is a sole app that gives you tons of options, Pixlr is a photo editor split into three different apps. Each of these is built for a specific purpose, and you’ll likely find yourself only using one of the 3 Pixlr apps. In this article I’m going to cover each one so you can see which one is for you!

If your computer doesn’t have a built-in webcam app, your camera might sit there unused, even when it could have a ton of fun potential. For Mac and iOS users, this has always been pretty easy, since they can use the Photobooth app to quickly take all the fun pictures you like. Windows 8 now has a built-in camera app, but for everyone else, you’ll have to go searching for another app.

In an age when the web possesses everything we would ever need, you probably could of guessed there was some kind of alternative online. Snappic is an app which definitely fits the bill. Acting as a Photobooth in your browser, Snippic could soon become a party favourite!
