Although I love writing for the AppStorm network, I do have another full time job as a teacher. One of the biggest things that I have learned over my 7 years as a teacher is to be organized and to always plan ahead. Not only do you want to plan ahead, but you want to plan with purpose. You need to have short term and long range goals for your students, and having a master plan is a great way to do this.

That is where a web app like Planboard can come in very handy. It is a great way to stay organized and help you as a teacher to plan for the week, month or for the year. It also gives you an easy way to share your plans with others. Let me show you what I am talking about.


Have you ever noticed that it seems that your work can easily fill your whole day, and weekend, and then some? You’re not along. Parkinson’s law, “Work expands so as to fill the time available for its completion“, unfortunately seems to be all too true. And when you’re jumping around between dozens of tasks without enough time to complete any of them fully, you’ll end up feeling like you never really get anything done.

Taskk is a brand new app that tries to help you be more productive by letting you focus on what you actually have time to accomplish and finish in your schedule. It’s a simple app, but if it can actually help you be more productive, it’d be worth a try, right? Maybe that’s your problem: you need a bossy to-do list that tells you what to do, now.


Online event planning is as old as the Internet itself. Spend a few bucks (or not) and a web app will do most of the heavy lifting, making you the perfect host. People are very much accustomed to receive evites and RSVPing online as the entire process makes lives easier for the event planner and attendees alike.

But what if you are looking to break the tradition of inviting only friends and acquaintances for a get together or a soft ball game? How to invite people in your locale who happen to enjoy dunking hoops or pitching a ball but aren’t in your contact list? That’s where Plangr fits the bill perfectly. Follow me after the fold to find exactly how novel the app is.

Planning makes life easy. In fact, a  lot of us plan things ahead using the best technique we know or works for us. So planning isn’t the problem. General laziness and short attention spans are some some of few reasons things that were planned in advance do not get done. But it is an undeniable fact that we move forward at least a bit more with a plan, than when we don’t have one in the first place.

There’s no dearth of apps and techniques to plan things in advance. One among them is MoreDays that plans to mesmerize with the sheer beauty of the web app. Moredays is a completely new way of planning and recording life that cross the borders of standard planning and turns paper calendar into an electronic/digital calendar. Time to take it for a spin!


Designing websites is an art. A lot of tools and techniques are used to create a design before the programmers can start working on it to create the backend. Even for the experienced designer, it might not be ideal for remembering the organization of the pages and content in his head throughout the process. Pen and paper can only go so long.

Jumpchart helps you plan websites before getting the design and coding done. Care to know how useful the app actually is?


Floor plans are an important medium to visualize the house in scale for aspiring home owners. In the competitive real estate market, listings with floor plans draw significantly more interest. Like all design verticals, professional floor plans will cost you dearly.

Floorplanner gives us the tools to make our properties stand above the rest of the crowd. With Floorplanner, in addition to creating plans, we can export great images for printing brochures or code to embed the plan in our website or blog.


The web has had a definite effect on the travel industry, enabling people to be their own travel agents. With the improvements in mapping technologies and the ability to share knowledge, it has never been easier to find the information you need regarding the places you want to see.

The following list of sites can be useful in your planning. Some help you find the best airfares and hotels, while others help you decide what you should do when you get to your destination.

If you are traveling some time soon, use these sites to save yourself money and find all the best kept secrets of your destination that will make your holiday as memorable as possible.
