It’s time for another “Ask the Editor” post today. Thanks to everyone who sent in their questions; keep sending them in (via form at the end). It’s great getting the opportunity to help out with your web-related queries.
Some of the topics covered this week include protecting the data you store in web apps from potential loss by either app developer mistakes or closure of the app, task management apps and how to retain users for developers.
Read on for plenty of handy web knowledge; hopefully you’ll find most of it useful for your own situation as well!
We’re kicking off another new post series today, called “Ask the Editor”. This is a great way for you to ask questions about Web software (or related hardware) and AppStorm and I will share my responses. Whether you’re dying to know where you should store your photos, are seeking the best of the best apps, or you want to know how to accomplish something with a web app, I’m here to help!
I’ve had some great questions submitted this week, so read on to find out what my responses are (and how you can submit your own questions for the next article!)
We’re going to be kicking off a new series next week, called “Ask the Editor”. This will run a few times each month, and give you a chance to submit questions to be answered by our editorial team (and a few expert writers, if we need some assistance!)
Whether you have a question related to web apps, browsers, or Web.AppStorm in general, I’d really love to hear it! I’ll do my best to answer a series of diverse questions that will be interesting for everyone.
Without further ado, here’s a quick form to submit your question for next week’s post. Hopefully you’ll be seeing my response up on AppStorm soon. Thanks for contributing!
Everyday we find ourselves at cross roads, unable to decide about things. When in doubt we always turn to friends and family to get our queries answered. Now that the world has become so connected by way of social networking, we have access to experts from across the globe.
There are a few web apps that help us tap into the social expertise network to get our questions answered. Yahoo answers is the most famous and Aardvark is the latest. In addition to connecting us with thousands of volunteer experts, Aardvark (also known as Vark) allows us to connect with our friends by integrating Facebook and Gmail accounts. Let’s see how best we can tap into the social knowledge base.
