Top 20 Web App's You Should Know About


Whether you have migrated to cloud computing completely or are finding yourself heading in that direction, you'll want to keep doing the same things that you have always done when using your PC.


We all love websites that are useful, especially ones that help you be more productive, and even more so the ones that we don't need to sign up or register with. Listed below are a few you may have already discovered, and maybe a few you haven't. Some of the following do require a sign-up, but not all of them.

If you have reservations or worries about cloud computing, just keep this in mind, today's youth are already there. More than a million Chromebooks are now used in US schools, and that's just the beginning. Recently NYC Schools are committing to use Chromebooks, following in the footsteps of LA schools. Schools all across America are discovering their potential.

Everyday computer users are also finding, and enjoying the freedom with their new found mobility that comes with computing in the clouds.

It used to be, whatever you were doing on your PC, could only be done on that PC, which essentially kept your chained to your desk. Now you can open, edit, create, snap a photo or video share it, collaborate with others, post, chat, go shopping and do anything you want, no longer chained to that desk!

Even small businesses are going there, the concept is not new, the change you make might be. Whether you're on the go or not, you can have access to what matters most to you, when you take flight, and start living the high life in the clouds.

I've listed below some web apps that are useful. I did not include any Office Suites, because online office apps are already integrated with your email service.


The Top 20 Web Apps you should know about:
1. Converting files = http://www.online-convert.com/
2. Download Video from YouTube w/No Software = http://en.savefrom.net/

9. Turn Web page into a PDF = http://www.web2pdfconvert.com/
10. Evernote - Note Keeping & Taking = http://evernote.com/

You should take advantage of these Free offerings as well. The online storage offered here is more than enough for documents and forms, You would be wiser to utilize Flickr and Google Photos for all of your pictures and videos. They will take up more space than your documents and Google Photos now gives you unlimited storage. Flicker is useful also, but I'd only use it for a back-up they have a 2 Terabyte limit with their free offering.

Now turn your web browser into a real lean and mean machine, add a folder to your bookmarks bar and make these web apps favorites listed in this folder and essentially your browser will replace the need to have installed software. Even better whatever you save to the web is easily accessible from any device any time. PC's crash, hard drives fail, and software that needs to be installed is expensive, not to mention that installed software always needs upgraded and often needs to be replaced.

How many versions of desktop software have you had to buy over the years? How many different versions of Windows or MS Office or anything else?
Enough is enough I say. Get cloud based, and you'll be happy you did. Fear nothing and don't look back!

Maybe you know of something useful to add if so, mention your ideas and suggestions in the comments below.


* My advice and recommendations are for personal and home use. Business needs are sure to differ and although many of them are also going mobile, there is still some need for OS's & other installed software for offline PC work stations.

  1. Hello Outriderr
    I felt ancient reading your article about web apps. I think the only app I am familiar with is the evernote app. Quite an informative article. Easy to read and understand. Minor editing required. I will definitely try some of these apps out.
    Thanks

    1. Thank you for taking the time to post a comment. You'll see the future really is in mobile applications for most. It's a trend I never thought would take off, but I found I was wrong about that.

      There's many more web apps and more being developed, but I just wanted to highlight a few and raise a bit of awareness.

      Thanks again

  2. Bluehost is definitely one of the best web-hosting provider for any hosting services you might require.
