It continues to amaze me how people are now able to collaborate with each other and work on a project or business together and not be in the same space, state, or even country. The power of the web has been able to bring people together like never before. It continues to fascinate me how this works and that it is actually producing good results.
Collaborate, the web app that I am reviewing today, does exactly what its name says. It gives you the power of the web to collaborate with others, whether it be on a work project or something else where you need to communicate over the web. I was very interested in it because in my work as an online educator, I have teachers that are in many different areas of our state and some that are even out of state. This platform gives me the ability to communicate with them and to be able to work together effectively as if we were right there working in the same office. I was eager to try it out to see how it would work and whether or not this would be a long term solution for our group.
Earlier this month we covered several apps for sending files online and even asked you which were your favorites – and over half of you said you use Dropbox. While that’s great for sending across files, it’s not the best choice for collaboration, especially if you need a place to discuss the files you’re sharing and what you’re doing with them.
Glassboard wants to be that place – a meeting room where you can share files securely and talk about what you’re working on, without having your privacy invaded. The app allows you to invite friends, colleagues and clients to view and share photos and files in a private environment and is simple to use. Is this the collaboration tool you’ve been looking for? Let’s find out.
Bookmarking apps are not exactly the rare breed they used to be. A lot has changed over a couple of years. In fact, there is too much supply than demand in the marketplace. On the other hand, the volume of bookmarks are going up exponentially and in nine out of ten cases users are locked into the service they first sign up with.
That probably explains the torrent of new wave bookmarking apps. Grazely is a next generation social bookmarking tool that helps you discover, save, organize and share exciting content on the web, privately or publicly. Is this web app as exceptional as it clams to be? Let us go find out!
When faced with a complex project that requires multiple skill sets, it’s always a good idea to look for help. Teams that can split up their work and utilize each member’s skills efficiently work fast and deliver great results. But it’s not always easy to delegate tasks – there may be confusion as to the scope of roles and delivery dates, or it may even be hard to find out which team members are best suited to which task.
Todofeed aims to solve that problem with a simple app that helps you get everyone on the same page and get cracking on your next project fast. But does it have enough to offer? Let’s take on a project and find out.
