Sponsors

We’d like to say a special Thank You! to our sponsors from June. If you would like to feature your app on our site with an advertisement, be sure to check out our available slots on BuySellAds or register for a weekly sponsorship for your app.

If you haven’t already checked out our the great apps that sponsored our site last month, be sure to check them out now!

Webmon

If your site’s offline, you’ll lose new customers and frustrate existing ones. But you won’t know about it, until someone takes the time to mention it on social networks or you happen to discover it yourself. By then, the downtime — or perhaps just slowdowns — have already cost you business. That’s why you need Webmon — it’s the service that can monitor every service on your site or web app, so you can make sure everything’s always running smoothly.

Safestacks

Keeping track of your clients’ usernames, passwords and other important information is a real pain. How can you ensure all of it’s safe and encrypted while still giving you, your team, and your clients access to the information they need? That’s what Safestacks is designed for.

Simply put, Safestacks allows you to securely store, manage and share passwords and other important info with your team and clients. Usernames, passwords, expiration dates, domain names, software licenses and just about anything else. You can even set email alerts when important dates are approaching (great for domain name expirations and contract renewals).

Timely

Timely is a beautifully designed time tracking app that’s intuative and simple. You’ll be able to track the time you spend working with no fuss from your browser or its iPhone app. Whether you’re working on your own projects, or collaborating on projects across your whole company, Timely makes keeping track of the time spent on everything simple.

FusionCharts

While creating the right dashboard is a detailed process, it can be a lot simpler if you pick the right charting components. That is where FusionCharts comes in. It is the charting partner for LinkedIn and ClickTale, and calls itself JavaScript charting for the grown-ups.

FusionCharts’ charts render seamlessly on all devices (PCs, Macs, iPads, iPhones, and Android devices) and browsers (including IE 6, 7 and 8). It takes just 15 minutes to create a chart and just a couple of hours to set up advanced reporting features like clickable legends, drill-down, export to PNG/JPEG/PDF, tooltips, visual data editing and more. The suite comes with 90+ chart types and 950+ maps, extensive documentation and plug-and-play dashboard demos. They also have a jQuery charting plugin.

And a special thanks to you, our Web.AppStorm readers, for reading and sharing our articles. We hope you continue to find our articles interesting and helpful!

If your site’s offline, you’ll lose new customers and frustrate existing ones. But you won’t know about it, until someone takes the time to mention it on social networks or you happen to discover it yourself. By then, the downtime — or perhaps just slowdowns — have already cost you business. That’s where Webmon, our sponsor this week, comes in.

Webmon is a real-time monitoring service that can monitor everything about your site. It monitors most web protocols, including HTTP, DNS, SMTP, TCP & ICMP based internet facing destinations for Uptime & Availability from the outside looking in. If the online service is down or in a bad state you get notified via email and sms as well as through multi-stage escalations (stage 1 – Sys Admin, stage 2 – Manager, stage 3 Director, and so on). Webmon lets you build custom triggers for thresholds, too.

You can create dashboards to see how your services compare to each other or to other sites Globally. This also allows you to look at Service Level Objectives. It also goes far into Multi-Step HTTP Transaction Monitoring for things like authentication forms and shopping carts. And if you’re curious, you can even dig into how Webmon works. Whatever you need monitored, Webmon is the tool you need to do it all, in realtime.

Give Webmon a Try!

Keeping track of your clients’ usernames, passwords and other important information is a real pain. How can you ensure all of it’s safe and encrypted while still giving you, your team, and your clients access to the information they need? That’s the problem the folks at Forge3 had when working with their clients, so they built the solution. It’s called Safestacks.

Simply put, Safestacks allows you to securely store, manage and share passwords and other important info with your team and clients.

The world is getting more data-driven every single day. Everyone wants to make more informed decisions based on data and not on gut feeling, and as such, dashboards are becoming ever more important. They convert tons of data into easily identifiable trends and patterns using charts that make sense to the naked eye.

This holds particularly true for web apps. Designing great reports and dashboards that help users make informed business decisions in quick time is increasingly becoming an aspect that can differentiate your web app from your competitor’s.

Here are 2 web apps that you could seek inspiration and learn best practices from when you are developing your web apps’ dashboard.

LinkedIn

LinkedIn needs no introduction. The world’s largest professional network has reports for a bunch of its tools, including its Group Statistics.

LinkedIn

This is one of the cleanest dashboards you will ever see. It splits the metrics into 4 tabs to break the info into digestible chunks, and mentions the top performers explicitly to give you a quick summary. They then add further detail and context to data using tooltips to display more information about a particular dataset.

ClickTale

ClickTale is a Web Analytics tool that that provides businesses with insights into their customers’ online behavior.

ClickTale

Their dashboard shows the most critical components upfront — Heatmaps, Search Recordings, Visitor Recordings, Conversion Funnel and Visitor Geolocations — and then you can drill-down into any of them for a closer look.

Want these reports for yourself?

While creating the right dashboard is a detailed process, it can be a lot simpler if you pick the right charting components. That is where FusionCharts, our sponsor this week, comes in. It is the charting partner for LinkedIn and ClickTale, and calls itself JavaScript charting for the grown-ups.

FusionCharts’ charts render seamlessly on all devices (PCs, Macs, iPads, iPhones, and Android devices) and browsers (including IE 6, 7 and 8). It takes just 15 minutes to create a chart and just a couple of hours to set up advanced reporting features like clickable legends, drill-down, export to PNG/JPEG/PDF, tooltips, visual data editing and more. The suite comes with 90+ chart types and 950+ maps, extensive documentation and plug-and-play dashboard demos. They also have a jQuery charting plugin.

All in all, it is used by 21,000 organizations and 450,000 developers, including some of the web’s most popular apps and a majority of Fortune 500 companies. It’s even being used at the Stanford Research Institute to design their workstation of the future. So why not use it to power the charts in your own app? Download a copy and try it out today.
