Conventional wisdom would say that web apps generally are less feature-full than their native app counterparts. Google Docs is less polished than iWork or Microsoft Office 2010, but that’s just to be expected. And on mobile browsers and tablets, many web apps are much harder to use than native apps, but hey, it’s just a web app. You can’t expect so much, right?

LucidChart is one app that’s proving the conventional wisdom wrong. They’ve created a web app that runs faster and smoother than many desktop apps. Visio can drive you insane after using it for a few minutes, but we were very impressed at how nice LucidChart was at creating diagrams and more when we first reviewed it. Since then, the developers haven’t rested on their laurals. Instead, they’ve added a Visio file importer, offline support, and amazing integration with the iPad that lets you draw intricate diagrams quicker than ever.

Keep reading for a peek at the new features, and a chance to win a free year of LucidChart Professional! (more…)

Sometimes it seems like it can be more difficult to run the business end of a job than to actually do the job. Keeping up with your expenses, rates and services, clients, and invoices can be a full time job in itself. The good news is, there are many great apps that can help you keep track of your invoices and the info you need for them, so you won’t have to worry about it.

One great invoicing app we’ve reviewed is Invoicera. Invoicera lets you bring your clients, services, products, and more together in a simple invoicing app, so you’ll spend less time billing and more time getting your work done. It’s a handy tool for freelancers and businesses of any size.

One of Invoicera’s best benefits is its reasonable prices for the hosted application, so you can scale your account as your business grows. Or, if you’d rather keep your invoicing data on your own servers, Invoicera recently launched a new self-hosted version of Invoicera. This lets you take advantage of Invoicera’s app while still keeping your billing data internal.

Best of all, we’ve got 5 free 6 month Invoicera Business accounts to giveaway to our readers. With this, you’ll be able to create unlimited invoices for unlimited clients with up to 4 other people in your team. To enter the giveaway, just leave a comment below and let us know how you’d put an Invoicera account to use in your business. The contest will close at midnight CST on Tuesday, June 21, 2011, so make sure to get your comment in quickly!

Killer invoicing app Ronin has released an HTML5-built iPhone app for users to track time on the go and sync with their Ronin account. Because the app is built with HTML5, an Android version will be a relatively simple addition, though with a UI tweaked for the different screen sizes.

If you aren’t familiar with Ronin, be sure to give our review a look: Smooth & Customizable Invoicing With Ronin. The app received a fantastic 9/10 rating, so be sure to give it a look.
