Invoices are used all of the time by various organisation types. From freelancers to large businesses, a lot of people rely on the need to present a total cost for their services in a standard document form. There are quite a few web apps that make this task so much simpler by providing an online interface to both create and manage these. However, if funds get low and you can’t afford to fork out monthly for access to your favourite invoice app, there are plenty of solutions to solve this predicament.

One of these is Pancake. You pay once, install on your own server and can use the app without limits to your heart’s content. Read on to find out more about this powerful new contender in the invoicing field.


The ultimate goal for any business is to make your customers as happy as you possibly can with the product or service you provide. That’s why some of the bigger companies invest large sums of money into customer service and utilise online help desks to provide prompt and thorough support. If your company’s just starting out, or you perhaps don’t have the funds to build your own internal website help desk or virtual support centre, there are a number of web apps that can take care of this for you.

One of these options is Tender. After the break, we’ll take a peek and see if this is the customer service app that can give your team a better customer service image.

When you’ve developed what you think is the coolest new service or digital product that you’d like to distribute online, it’s important – as with any other product – to get it out there as soon as it’s ready. It’s for this reason that so many creators turn to web apps to manage the technical side of actually processing the payments. If you’re based in the US and need something to do the hard work for you of payments, look no further than PintPay.

PintPay is a brand new app that makes payment processing simple and affordable, ensuring that payments can be taken in minutes. Read on to find out more.


When you’re doing business without completing much customer research beforehand, a lot of assumptions are made. These can sometimes be way off because you’re not really asking your customers what they think, instead relying on preconceptions that are sometimes wrong. This is where Customer Thermometer comes in.

This handy little app allows you to send out emails that allow your customers to provide feedback in a quick and easy way and rate your service based on a traffic light system that represents how satisfied they are with the service or just about anything else you’d like feedback on.

It’s pretty clear to anyone looking for a project management web application, there are plenty of them out there. Finding the right one for your business can prove to be quite difficult. There are a select few apps out there that have a good range of features that would benefit any business, no matter how big or small, and one of those is Project Bubble.

Project Bubble promises to be the ultimate all-rounder tool for managing projects and teams “without the hassle”, something it keeps to – providing file management, time tracking, collaboration features and much more. Read on to find out more about this app.


In this new age of relying on computers and our devices to remember things for us, it can certainly be assumed that some of us are partial to the task management app. As Apple announces the inclusion of its very own task management app in its upcoming release of iOS 5, this is yet more confirmation that a good portion of us are relying increasingly on technology to do the remembering for us.

When you’re not just looking for a simple solution but are indeed looking for a fully-featured web app to manage tasks, look no further than Todoist. Read on to find out more.


When it comes to online solutions for the many problems and daunting tasks faced when running a business, a lot of app developers seem to be under the impression that your business can afford to invest hundreds in these apps. Unfortunately, for many small business starting out, the funds just aren’t there.

That’s where TeamLab comes in. It’s a promising (and completely free) change from the many apps available out there that charge extortionate amounts and only provide some basic functionality. Like what you hear? Read on to find out how to get started with the app and kickstart your business’ online portal.


The trick to making a really good web application is to not over-complicate it so that the user doesn’t know what they’re doing. It’s all about simplicity. Creating an app that fulfils a user’s needs without leaving them confused or bombarded with features they’re probably not going to use is key. One app that fits right into this mold is Coolendar.

Coolendar is more than simply yet another calendar app. It doesn’t promise the capability of mapping out each second of your day but what it does do is a lot better than that – it allows you to manage your time and tasks without having to complicate anything. Read on to find out more about this rightly self-proclaimed “cool” app.


When you’re running a business, you’ll more than likely have to deal at some point with proposals – especially if you provide a service directly to clients. However, creating these can take valuable time away from your schedule so a neat app like Quote Roller can come in quite handy.

Quote Roller allows businesses or individuals to create great-looking proposals that can be managed entirely online and distributed to the client. Sporting a great interface and a variety of features, it could easily be an essential app for your business. Read on to find out more about this interesting little app.


There are millions of websites in existence and many more are created and released each day. However, if you’re looking to find out about the credibility of a website or just what other people think about it, you can always count on your trusty friend Google. Sometimes, though, it can be hard to find real reviews as most people only take to talking about things on the web if they’re deeply dissatisfied with something.

That’s where Doogl comes in. Doogl allows any web users to easily activate their bookmarklet on a website and begin discussion. With an emphasis on expression, you can always find honest opinions of the website you’re browsing in a matter of clicks.
