SquadMail can best be described as “Dropbox for email”, since it lets you share synchronized Gmail labels (or any IMAP email folder) with others. Instead of constantly CCing your entire team on every email, you can simply assign a shared label to it and it’ll show up in just the right place in your collaborators’ inboxes. If your team changes, you can simply add a new person to a label and they’ll have access to all the old emails. It’s the app your team needs to make email your killer collaboration app again.

When browsing through my RSS feeds during a regular April workday (and prior to Google killing off its most beloved RSS tool), I came across an image that made me quadruple-blink. My rapidly blinking eyes were, in fact, trying to process the fact that Robert Scoble — the renowned tech evangelist and Rackspace spruiker — had just posted online a naked photo of himself wearing Google Glass in the shower. Now don’t get me wrong: I’m neither a Luddite nor a prude, but there was something heavily cringe-worthy about seeing a guy like Scoble nude-it-up for the sake of rampant page views… (more…)
I am a functionality-over-form kind of guy. I’ll use Windows and Android because of the programs I can run rather than the beautiful walled gardens of OSX and iOS. I prefer an LG television set with better USB options than a stunning Sony Bravia. And I’m all for buying ill-fitting pants if it means they offer more comfort.
As long as it’s not downright ugly (and granted, ugly is a subjective term), I will always pick a product that offers more functionality than the one that is designed better.
And that’s what Wrike is. In terms of design chops, it’s got nothing going for it. In fact, there will be many who find it ugly. But it has so much power under the hood that to describe it, I can overlook the looks to feature the features.
Along with spreadsheets, presentations are one of the main “attractions” of the corporate-style workplace (warning: sarcasm). These multimedia productions should be engaging, but sadly, few of us have the presence of delivery, nor the content, to provide something truly compelling for the audience.
And then there’s the start-to-end in-computer construction and delivery of a presentation, which can often be a struggle — magnified, if you need to collaborate with colleagues. Within a team, the collection and organization of the required media can be a stilted process if you are working remotely, and getting the finished product to function properly anywhere outside of your chosen native software is often the cause of much frustration.
Bunkr is a new web-based platform which is hoping to ease most of these presentation-related pains. The French startup aims to provide all the tools needed to create your slideshow, from the cherry-picking of content, right through to the publication of your masterpiece in browser-friendly HTML5. But can one cloud-based service really offer the all-round game to make presentations easy?
As a writer who works solely online, the success of the blog as a publishing platform for the written word has been a good thing. I can’t truthfully say that the continued, never-ending growth of blogging is a positive, however. The breathtaking volume of text being published every second makes life difficult for readers, who constantly find themselves having to catch up, and it devalues the work of high quality writers.
It’s little wonder, then, that writers have flocked to networks in search of hits, or the bucks they produce. Controversial the Bleacher Report may be, but it has given a select group of writers the opportunity to be rewarded for their popularity. Equally, some have gone looking for readers on content aggregators such as Medium, with the idea being that articles within the network are far more discoverable than a blog post, on its own, would be.
But what if writers were able to combine the visitor numbers of a network with the revenue options of a personal blog? This tantalizing prospect is roughly what new invite beta service, Notelr, looks capable of providing. An impossible dream? Let’s find out…
It’d be easy to levy the same accusation against the internet that the iPad has withstood ever since it was originally released: it’s only for consumption. The iPad seemed perfectly designed for reading and watching videos and social networking, not writing books and designing buildings and crafting animation and more that people do every day on PCs. It’d be obvious to say the same thing about the internet — it’s the place we go to waste time and read and watch videos of cats and update our status on Facebook.
If you’re a frequent reader of our articles at Web.AppStorm, though, you know for a fact that there’s thousands of ways to be productive and get things done online. You could write a book, or tweak photos, or paint a masterpiece, or code a new application, or design a new building, all without leaving your browser. The web’s a powerful place for collaboration, or for working on your own.
The web is also the best place to sell stuff. You can sell your old stuff you never use on eBay or Craigslist, sell a book on Amazon or an app on the App Store, or make your own online store and sell anything you make from your own site. There’s dozens of ways to easily open an online store, from Gumroad’s simple digital download eCommerce to Etsy’s simple tools to sell your handicrafts.
I personally sell a digital magazine online through the App Store and Gumroad, and my wife sells craft supplies on eBay. How about you? Do you sell stuff online, either just to get rid of older stuff or as your business? What apps do you use to help you sell online? We’d love to hear your eCommerce experience in the comments below!
