Droplr is one of the original simple file sharing apps, popularized by its simple Mac menubar app that lets you drag files to its icon and instantly share them with the world. Its clean design and simple sharing features have made it popular with many users, and I personally first started using it when I wanted to share files from Windows easily and discovered WinDroplr, which was added as Droplr’s official Windows app.
One thing that easily sets Droplr apart from other file sharing tools is that their team has kept refining the service. Today, it’s one of the best ways to share files from your browser, and with new pro accounts, it’s got more features at a better value than most of its competitors. If you’re looking for a better way to share files online, Droplr is definitely one of the first apps you should consider.
With any development project or something in which bugs are required to be fixed constantly, it can be a real pain to manage what needs to be worked on. Developers need to know exactly what’s wrong to ensure that they can release fixes in a swift turnaround and prevent any errors that could result from the bugs. Luckily, in the age of web apps, there’s a web app for everything and in this case, there’s a perfect one for the task of this in the form of Snowy Evening.
Much like its name, it’s quaint and is a nice little app that really packs a punch in the field of issue tracking. Packed with an incredible interface and a really practical pricing model, it can be a really good addition to any developer’s toolkit. Read on to find out more!
Customer support is a core part of business, and good customer support can be a fundamental way to keep customers loyal. Take a company like Apple, for instance. Their customer service is chiefly thought of to be top notch, and for many, that alone can justify higher prices and keep customers returning to buy more. Technical support usually has never really had a good image, to the point that it’s mocked on national TV and being a frustration to many.
Of course, you don’t want that image reflected in your own business. With so many companies doing tech support wrong, doing it right can be a big selling point for your company and can make you stand apart from your competitors. It might be time to find a good customer support system, and Ticksy might just be that. Ticksy is a bloat-free customer support managed that even features integration without our very own Envato marketplaces. Even the smallest personal business needs to handle customer support, so lets take a look and see how Ticksy fits the bill.
It cannot be denied that Facebook is now a large part of most people’s lives. For many of us, its use involves catching up with friends, organising events and sharing our experiences of the world around us. With over 900 million members, there is no doubt that Facebook is the de facto social network on the planet, the time of Myspace has definitely passed and more and more people are now migrating to Facebook from other social networks that were perhaps more popular in local areas (Bebo in the UK, for example).
For a product with so many users, Facebook seems to be incredibly quick to change its designs and layout. Is this actually a good thing for users, and can they possible keep changing without facing a sharp user backlash?
There’s dozens of ways to keep your files in sync, from the old standby Dropbox to Google’s new Drive app. We recently did a roundup of the best sync services, and many of you chimed in with your other favorite sync services in the comments.
That’s why we’re curious: what file sync service do you use? I personally use Dropbox Pro, and many on our team use Dropbox with either free or pro accounts to keep their files synced and shared around with their coworkers. But I also use iCloud to sync files to my iPad from my Mac, and have tried out most of the services listed. What about you?
Weddings are some of the most memorable occasions we attend, whether you’re participating or merely in attendance and, if it’s your special day, you’ll likely want to save the memories of the day forever. Lots of people hire wedding photographers to capture these moments officially but friends and family will inevitably still shoot their own, most likely on a smartphone. Wouldn’t it be cool if you could get them all, and aggregate them into an online album for you to access later?
That’s where uSnap.us comes in. uSnap.us allows you to “see your wedding through your guest’s eyes” by getting them to download an app which, in turn, takes their images and publishes them to an online gallery. A very interesting concept, uSnap.us could be a fantastic way to capture any event from a number of perspectives without having to chase after attendees to get ahold of shots afterwards. (more…)
When Google threw its hat into the cloud storage ring a few weeks ago with Google Drive, it added another good service to a quickly growing niche. With Dropbox, Google Drive, iCloud, Skydrive, Amazon Could Drive, and more, it’s tough to choose which is the best. Dropbox is the long-time favorite, and many of us already use it. Then, the tech heavyweights – Google, Apple, Microsoft, and Amazon – have all jumped in as well.
File sync isn’t anything new in 2012, but it’s increasingly needed as we’re using more devices and sharing files with others more often than ever. At its core, file sync is file sync, but there’s still a lot of other factors to consider when looking for the best file sync service for your needs. Here, we’ll take a look at these services in detail to see which you should go with.
Finances and dealing with money has been something that I have always enjoyed doing, not for work, but in general. I am always looking for better ways to save money and now with our first child, even more so, do we have to money conscious.
That is why I got really excited when I came across SmartyPig. It is a web application that helps you with your savings goals and gives you the opportunity to create and save for them. Sounds simple, but there is much more to it than just that, so let me show you around the app.
Scheduling meetings online is a pain, period. If you think Skype makes your life easy, well, think twice. First of all, you need to have an account with them, then download and install their bulky software, then pester your friends to do the same if they haven’t done so already (True story). Though this makes sense for heavy users on the longer run, it’s too much pain if you just want to have a casual conversation with your friends or just interviewing a potential hire.
Isn’t there any light weight solution that makes ad-hoc meetings simple? Google+ hangout is an interesting option, but that would again mean registering an account in their social network and adding your “friends” to it. No, I need an app that doesn’t require any setup whatsoever. In my endless quest to find the perfect app, I stumbled upon meetings.io. It looks promising at first-glance, so join us as we take it for a spin to see if its the group video chat app we’ve always needed.
