If we choose to forget the outrageous sticker price of Adobe’s creative suite apps, nobody can deny that they make some of the most awesome tools in the digital world. All their tools are built and distributed targeting hardcore professionals who happen to be the experts in their digital domain. Think you can buy InDesign and start working on the campus magazine ASAP? Absolutely not. Hours of learning, if not professional training will be necessary.

Taking into account the hardships of newbies, casual users and non professionals, Adobe has recently launched a publishing tool that spans across platforms – both desktop and web.

As the popularity of Twitter has soared over the past two years, so has the number of Twitter clients. It can be slightly intimidating for a new Twitter user to choose the right client as they can have different strengths and weaknesses.

For current freelancers and web workers, there is certainly no shortage of options when it comes to project management tools. Choosing the tool to use can be a daunting task.

When you get down to comparing one application to another, one factor to consider is availability.
