Most of our cultural tales, traditions, and legends started as stories that were handed down orally, generation to generation. The sayings and phrases that we think of without thinking were engrained into our consciousness by years of repetition, saying and hearing the same phrases over and over. Sometimes it might seem like it’s hard to think of something that hasn’t been said.
For all of the collective wisdom of the ages, though, it’s easy to forget those special things that the people closest to us say. We can remember what the president or a character in a movie said, but what about that bit of advice your grandma always gave you? The Wisdom of Others is a web app that helps you preserve these memories and more. You can collaboratively create a book of quotes, whether famous quotes you love or special advice from your loved ones. Let’s take a look and see if you’re up to the task of creating your own quote book.
The best way to unwind after a hectic work schedule is to travel to a destination that helps you relax. Be it domestic or abroad, a change of place plays a vital role in rejuvenating both mind and body. Besides, travel and tourism help boost cultural relations and local economies too. However, at times the tedious work behind planning a vacation might make us rethink our decision.
There are tens of thousands of online outlets trying to help you find an ideal travel destination. But a major portion of these so-called travel recommendation engines tend to be just Google ads plastered spam sites.
Travellerspoint takes a different approach that’s actually useful. It claims to be one of the web’s largest and most active travel communities with members representing every country in the world. I tried to plan my vacation at Travellerspoint and came up with some interesting choices. Care to know more?
It’s common knowledge that if you’ve invested a lot of time and effort into developing a useful web app, your users will be your number one priority. It’s your duty to ensure that they have the best experience using your app to ensure satisfaction for paying customers and hopefully sway free users into making the move to a premium account. To better provide the level of quality you require, you’re going to need to talk to them or at least get basic feedback on what they think.
UserMood is an app dedicated to doing just that. Read on to find out more about UserMood and the ways in which it could help you.
Some of my friends love working out. They enjoy going to the gym, or running, or lifting weights. While I enjoy doing activities like playing Racquetball or Baseball, I find in order to go to the gym, I need some motivation- I need something that will help keep me to whatever fitness goal I happen to have. Skinnyo is a social network that aims to do just that.
Managing all your account credentials can be a cumbersome task if done from memory, and potentially insecure if you use a traditional method like writing them down on paper. And that problem has spawned a niche in the market for a web app that can safely store your login credentials, whilst speeding up the whole login process. Luckily for us, there’s a ton of these apps available for us to choose from.
Hosted Notes is one of them. A lot of people, insecurely, write their login credentials down on paper, and Hosted Notes replicates this idea but in the cloud, but with a lot more security than standard paper notes. The service takes your login credentials and organises them into groups, for personal use throughout multiple types of website or for business use for multiple clients.
Sharing feedback is one of the most important aspects of teamwork. It’s what gets (and keeps) everyone on the same page and helps to ensure everyone is working together properly towards a common goal. This is easily achieved in face-to-face meetings… But it’s 2011, so how does one get comprehensive, coherent and usable feedback via the web?
The team behind ConceptBoard seems to have an answer: their web app provides a space to display and discuss files and ideas and get everyone’s points of view into focus. Is this the meeting-killer miracle you’ve been waiting for?
