I admire app developers that are willing to take a fresh look at what they have developed after releasing something for a while. It shows that they are passionate and believe in what they are building, not only for themselves, but for the general population as a whole. In my opinion, it takes a lot to be able to swallow your pride a little, take in user feedback and be willing to tweak a product or app so that it can better meet the demand for the user.

The reason why I am reflecting on this is that I have been using Kippt for the past couple of days and have been really impressed by what they have done to their app. They haven’t necessarily done a full facelift to it, but they were able to analyze how well the app worked and took user feedback to produce an even better product than before. If you are unfamilar with Kippt, we did a review on their old version a couple of years ago.

Apps that enable you to send contact information and files from one device to another have been available for years now, but when it comes to sharing websites, email is often the best bet. Yup: if you want to open the page you’re looking at on your computer in your phone’s browser, often the easiest way to move the link around is emailing yourself. That just doesn’t seem right.

While many web browsers now offer the option of syncing open tab sessions between computers,  the way synchronization has been implemented is not always ideal since they only work with other versions of the same browser. What if you use Chrome on your computer and Safari on your mobile devices?

This is where SendTab can help, making it possible to push tabs from one browser to another, on any device. Let’s see if it holds up to its promise.

One of the things I have the hardest time with is that my immediate family is so spread out. My wife and I live in Washington State, my parents and grandparents live in Hawaii and my sister lives in California. It is so hard to get to see each other on a consistent basis, and we are hardly ever all together in the same place. This makes staying in touch so much more important, but with busy lives sometimes, we always can’t stay in touch as much as we would like to.

Kincast is one of those apps that can hopefully bridge that gap of communication just a little bit more. As much as I try to talk to my parents at least once a week so that they can see our son, they still wish they could stay in touch more. The same goes for my sister and I, and so I decided to try out Kincast to see how it could help us out.

These days, there seems to be countless services that can be used to host and share files. The likes of Dropbox, Box and Google Drive are understandably popular, but they all have limitations of one form or another. There’s hosts of smaller, less popular apps, but then you risk whether or not they’ll be around forever.

If you need a more flexible solution, ownCloud could be just what you’re looking for, giving you the chance to easily host and access your files from other computers. You can run it on your own server, or host it on a number of hosting services easily. It just might be the Dropbox alternate you’ve been needing.

Anyone who has to write at any length at their computer will know that it’s all too easy to get distracted. Using many modern word processors is akin to working in a cartoon with endless brightly colors buttons vying for attention, and when you add in the risk of being drawn to browsing the web in the name of “research”, it’s a wonder any words ever get written.

Writer is a distraction-free online word processor that has been designed to make it easier to focus on what you need to get down on the page. It’s like an online version of the popular Mac app WriteRoom, and might be just what you need to help you stay focused when writing online.

Lists may not seem like the most exciting basis for a website, but everyone has the need to create some form of list from time to time. List creation and management need not be a solitary affair – there are countless scenarios in which two or more people might want to make use of the same list.

From shopping lists and to-dos to project management and itineraries, Organisr is an online tool that replaces those all-too-easily-lost scraps of paper that probably litter your desk. (more…)

You don’t get a great deal free these days, so the prospect of 50GB of online storage is an opportunity to be jumped at. There are many cloud storage services to choose from – Dropbox, Skydrive, Box and more – but free storage tends to limited to around 5GB.

Megaupload closed just over a year ago after intervention from the US Department of Justice, but the company’s founder, Kim Dotcom, is not a man to give up without a fight. One year later to the day, Mega was launched with possibly the most generous free package you’ll find. Generous enough, that we had to take a look.

It is difficult to imagine a world in which bookmarks did not exist. Without them we would have to resort to memorizing the URLs of countless websites or individual pages and type them out in full every time we wanted to visit the site in question.

Being able to save quick links to frequently visited sites is a great time saver, and it’s something that we take for granted. It would be easy to dismiss the humble bookmark, but they’re something we use on a daily basis. Listango has been designed to make them even more useful by offering a number of helpful additional features.
