roundup

Christmas time is here, and with that comes traffic jams in mall parking lots and the never-ending decisions over what gifts would be great for everyone on your Nice list. But playing Santa can be a rather hard job, especially if you’re trying to find something that’s special and unique.

It’s nearly impossible to buy gifts that are web app centric, unless you’re buying a Chromebook or perhaps a Firefox phone for a special someone, so we didn’t do a roundup of gifts just for web app fans. Instead, we’ve included a ton of geeky gifts in our roundup of gifts on Mac.AppStorm, and there’s a ton of stuff for everyone on your list. You’ll find the latest Doxies (great for scanning documents and saving them to your favorite web apps), the awesome Raspberry Pi (the $25 way to get online), and much much more.

If you’ve got some holiday shopping left to do for geeky folks, this is the list for you. Go check it out!

It’s Thanksgiving week for Americans, and here at AppStorm our international team still enjoys listing the apps we’re thankful for. We use tons of web apps in our daily work and leisure time, in addition to all the apps we try out for reviews and roundups that we publish here daily. It’d take way too long to list every app we use, but we rounded up a personal favorite from many on our team, as well as a couple of the apps that keep our articles coming your way every day.

Keep reading to see the apps that the Web.AppStorm team is most thankful for this year.

If you’re also an Android user, then you should definitely check out Android.AppStorm – maybe start by grabbing some great free apps!

There’s certainly no shortage of free Android apps, but a lot of these are really more like free demos: they’re ad-supported “lite” versions with accompanying paid apps, or they’re 30 day trials, or they require you to unlock extra features via in-app purchases or by paying for a monthly account.

That’s not a bad thing, of course; we shouldn’t expect all developers to give away the products of their hard work for free! But in this roundup, we’ll look exclusively at apps that don’t ask for a penny.

Head over to Android.AppStorm to read the post!

Our original roundup of 100 Web Apps to Rule Them All was published in May, 2011. Nearly a year later, we’re back with over a dozen new apps … and sadly with a few of our original favorites removed since they hit the deadpool. We’ve added the newest apps to the top of this roundup article, so you can quickly see our new favorites.

Today, more than ever before, you can get much of your work done right from your browser. There’s web apps for almost everything, and increasingly they work from mobile devices, have beautifully designed interfaces that rival native apps, and work together to make your online life easier. Some have stayed the same for years, veteran standbys of the online world, while others have rapidly iterated, quickly becoming must-have apps that set the standard for the next generation of web apps.

Whether you’re just getting started using web apps, or are a longtime fan of web apps and would like to find more exciting apps, you’ll be sure to find something interesting here. There’s no way to include every web app, but we’ve included 100 111 of the apps that we think are the very best in their categories. If you’ve got a favorite app that’s not included, feel free to add it in the comments below.

Enjoy!

If you’re a Windows user then it’s definitely worth checking out Windows.AppStorm’s latest roundup of awesome utilities!

Windows has gotten better with every new version and given the number of legacy hardware and software it supports, it’s no mean feat to make the operating system so user friendly. Yes, there are some shortfalls when it comes security and maintenance.

But since all of us don’t need power user features and there literally are a ton of apps to bridge the gap, I have complied an essential roundup of Windows utilities. While not very pretty looking, these apps get the job done and in most cases are available for free too.

Head over to Windows.AppStorm and check it out!

With as much technology news as there is, most of us are bound to miss lots of great information. While it would be impossible to cover everything that happens in a week, we would like to bring you a roundup of web app news you may have missed this week.

Generally when we do a giveaway, the winners are announced the following week. Last week’s Myows giveaway was so popular we had to close the comments in just 24 hours! In addition to that, Myows generously gave away 100 paid accounts, which would’ve made for an interesting giveaway announcement (that’s a lot of names!). So, to cap off this week, I’ll be doing something a little different.

While pondering ideas to cap off the week, I thought it would be a good chance to take a look back at the popular posts over the last couple weeks as well as some of the upcoming posts and contests. Also, I would never leave you guys without a tasty morsel of contesty-goodness if I could help it — so read on to see what goodies you can grab from CodeCanyon.
