Twitter has long come under fire for not allowing its users to download their old tweets, and for arbitrarily limiting the time you can go back in search.

Pinterest is a great social networking site, but it is definitely still young and lacking in some features. Whether you want to pin an unsupported format or want an in-depth analysis of your “pinfluence”, these and other potential features just aren’t available in Pinterest (yet, anyway). If you’d like the Pinterest experience but with more features, you can either use an entirely different Pinterest alternative, or you can try using one of these Pinterest-based tools.

This collection has a huge variety of tools, including ways to explore, discover, analyze and more. There are even a few browser plug-ins to really make your Pinterest experience worthwhile. These tools definitely give Pinterest a whole new layer of functionality and you’re sure to find at least one you don’t know how you ever pinned without. Read on to learn about 10 of my favorite Pinterest tools.

File transfer services have come a long way in the past couple of years, with new business models, features and pricing structures that make sending files online a delight. It’s a far cry from the old world of clunky FTP and shady file upload sites. But not all of these apps are created equal. They’ve each got different features, limitations, and focuses, and finding the right one for your workflow can be tricky.

That’s why we thought it’d be a good idea to compare them and see which ones come out on top. To evaluate these services, we’re going to look at their ease of use, file size, storage, and bandwidth limits, and pricing. This is less of a comparison and more of a roundup of some popular and useful apps, so check out the details of each to decide which one suits your needs best. There’s a wide variety of apps here, ranging from no-registration-required file transfer apps to feature-packed cloud storage solutions, and hopefully you’ll find something that fits the bill for you.
