There’s a wealth of video editing applications available but the majority (and the best) are confined to native desktop apps and generally come with a high price tag. Even when wanting to create the simplest of movies or slideshows, these apps also hog system resources, which isn’t friendly to other processes you want to run.
Stupeflix is a browser-based, simple video editing utility. It’s strapline is “video production made easy”, which it is… to an extent. Stupeflix has two main utilities: Stupeflix Studio (the aforementioned video production utility) and Stupeflix TV (which allows one to create a web TV channel showing Twitter updates and Flickr images). The latter, for me, sounds the most impressive but since Stupeflix Studio has a larger feature set that will be the focus of this review.
Managing money can be as difficult as earning it. Proverbs like “A dollar save is a dollar earned” are awfully nice to read and quote but can be tough to put into practice. Starting to track the money you spend is one of the simplest first steps one can take. Once you see how much is going where, you will automatically scramble to cut down wasteful expenses.
Since our generation is known for its acute ADD, noting down every expense on a notebook or an iPhone app won’t last more than a couple of days. In the aftermath of the personal finance revolution spearheaded by Mint, there are a ton of online apps to help you pinch personal & business pennies and after the jump we’ve a compiled a few for your financial well being.

For years I’ve followed the traditional method of creating to-do lists; adding an item, setting a due date/time and striking it off once the task is done. Rinse & repeat. Sure, the sheer satisfaction of striking off even the smallest item on the list drove me to stop procrastinating and get things done. The one thing I’ve often struggled with though, is in making sense of my entire task list as a whole. No matter how much I try to categorize it with folders and tags, they feel like detached units that I need to spend a lot of energy making collective sense of.
Online tools like Remember the Milk, Google Tasks and TeuxDeux, try to make things easier with e-mail integration, smart search and folders, or dead simple, lightning fast interfaces. But the inherent problem of a scattered, fragmented list of tasks that do not have an inherent hierarchy remains. Meta information like due dates and priorities are assigned to individual tasks, but what happens when a bunch of them have related properties?
Can cool domains names assure the success of a site, blog or brand? No, they can’t. However, a great product combined with a cool domain name does get the word around lightning fast. Selecting the perfect domain name requires patience, wordplay and more patience. Out there in the internet, there are bunch of web apps that help suggest, crunch and spin words to get hold of that perfect name.
While researching for this roundup, I discovered some really awesome web apps that can suggest hundreds of domain names based on broad based keywords and have listed some of them after the jump. Read on.
When you’re running a business by yourself or in a small team, you’re often prone to the obtrusive clutter in your email inbox – causing you to spend more time sorting everything out and leaving you with less time to do your job. Inside all of this clutter, you’re expected to easily identify clients and separate these important messages from the rest but this can also lead to a lot of headaches.
ContactMe does all of this and more – it offers a great and useful way to manage all of your contacts and make discussion with your clients that extra bit easier. Offering support for almost every aspect of contact management, it can be a really great addition to any business. Read on to see what I’m talking about.

As of late, Flash has been increasingly filling my thoughts. If you follow Web.AppStorm (you do right?), you’ll know that we’re clearly fans of Flash-less web apps and excited by advancements in apps utilizing HTML5 and CSS3. Although some of our posts would lead you to believe we’re anti-Flash, we’re certainly not — though I personally tend prefer Flash-less apps.
As the year is coming to an end, I’ve been evaluating the content Web.AppStorm covers and why we’ve so severely neglected our Flash brethren. The simple fact of the matter is, HTML5 stole much of the limelight this year and Flash took a few hard knocks thanks to a some big names like Apple and Google.
You’ll notice many new or improved web apps are flaunting HTML5 versions or replacements, dropping Flash like a bad habit. In a way, Flash has become a dirty word to many — or maybe just less marketable. While this may have been the trend during this last year, we’re well aware of the fact that Flash is still a powerhouse and in many situations, the right tool for the job.
With that in mind, I’d like to balance things out and give Flash more love this coming year. As such, I’ve been trudging through the mountains of web apps I use to find some really great Flash-based apps for in-depth reviews on Web.AppStorm.
With that, I’m wondering if you avoid Flash-based apps or embrace them lovingly? Do you have some really great Flash-based apps in mind that you’d love to see reviewed or featured on Web.AppStorm?
And, dare I ask, are you an HTML5 vs Flash OR an HTML5 & Flash (living in harmony) web user? Are they rivals or are they different tools that, used together, can accomplish amazing things?
