Like most people today, I prefer to save the majority of my files on cloud storage services, especially the work attachments I get in my emails. This helps me access my work files no matter where I am. For the past few days, I’ve been looking for a simple way to save all my attachments automatically to my Dropbox account so that I don’t have to upload them every time I receive an email. I did try IFTTT to see if I can create a recipe but it didn’t allow me to save the attachments in my Box or Dropbox account. It did save the copy of the email as text files, but that’s it.
Somehow, I am attracted to certain types of apps. When it comes to mobile, it’s the image editing and manipulating genre and in the case of the cloud, it’s the quote generation apps. I have reviewed a handful of them here over the past few months and today, it’s the turn of Sparkling.
In a sales process, it is very common for businesses to haggle over the price and in turn, a quote ends up edited and updated multiple times. There will be customer specific charges and fees as well. So, it’s imperative that the quote creation app is flexible enough to accommodate all the crazy changes.
Google Reader’s imminent demise has left most of us scrambling to find a new feed reader that hits the spot for us. For developers who were planning new RSS reader apps, it’s been a bigger rush to the market than any of them could have predicted months ago. We’ve gone through tons of RSS apps over the past few weeks in our reviews, many of them brand new apps while others are older services that have matured and added features recently. RSS apps went from a stagnant market dominated by Google to a market of diverse, exciting apps of all shapes and sizes, which if anything is a good side effect for us all.
The latest feed reader on the block is Feed Wrangler, a project that’d already been in the works for several months prior to Google’s announcement and that’s now ready for use. It’s simpler to use than many feed readers, though also more geeky with ways to make your own dynamic feeds from the sites you’re subscribed to. Let’s take a look.
Creating invoices is something every working professional has to do in order to get paid from their clients. Some prefer to use Microsoft Excel to create invoices while some people prefer to use online services or software. The problem with creating invoices in Excel is that one has to create a template first and then fill it with the required information. However, this may not be the most convenient method and may take some time to create.
One reason why I prefer online tools to create invoices is that you can easily manage and view all the invoices in few simple clicks and you can connect your PayPal or any other supported payment method with the service. This helps users find out how many invoices have been paid and so on.
At Web.AppStorm, we have shared some very useful invoicing apps, free and paid, that can help users create invoices. Today, we present to you another handy invoicing app that does not only allows users to create invoices and estimated but also allow them to manage their expenses from the same dashboard. The app is known as Scoreboard.
There’s plenty of plain text writing apps on the web. If you need a place to bang out some text, there’s plenty of options. There’s even starting to be a selection of collaborative writing apps, and blog engines that are focused on plain text. It’s a nice time to be a plain text geek on the web.
But what if you want to do more with your text? Perhaps, make outlines, collapse sections, display markdown as you’re writing, and move lines of text around? Then you’ve got to check out Oak Outliner.
Tracking your expenses properly is really important for a business to sustain, even for individuals who want to find out how much money is going out of their pocket. Since I started working, one of the most difficult things for me was to keep track of how much money I spend every month. As I prefer to manage all my expenses and incomes myself, I also on a lookout for best apps that can help me make this task easier and less hectic.
I’ve tried many apps, but none ever hit the spot for me until I came across CashBase.
If you’re looking for a great markdown-powered plain-text writing app, there’s dozens of apps out there — native apps for your device, or web apps that’ll run anywhere. There’s awesomely minimalist writing apps like Typewriter, or newer apps like Draft that make it easy to track your document’s revisions and get others to check your work.
But even if you love web apps, and need something that’ll work on any platform, sometimes apps that run online aren’t the best option. And native apps … well, chances are they won’t run on all the computers you use.
How about something that combines the best of both worlds? That’s exactly what Textdown — an offline Markdown writing app for Chrome — is. Spoiler: it’s really great, too.
