Top 10 Web Applications


The web has changed our world in so many ways, providing information at our finger tips, giving faster communication, allowing easier exploration of our world and increasing our productivity…unless you are a surfing zombie. If you are then this list may not be for you. This list of the top 10 web applications will introduce you to some web apps that you may not know about. We certainly hope you find a treasure or two. The Internet is full of useful and fun applications and new ones come and go every day. In fact this list will probably be out of date in a month to some degree, but that is what makes the web so exciting. So enjoy this list while it lasts and take time to see how some of these web apps can help you. Think we left off a web app? Let us know in the comments.

10. TiddlyWiki


Everyone knows Wikipedia, the wiki anyone can edit. But wouldn’t it be great if you had your own wiki that only you could edit? Anytime you had some new information, just go on it and enter a topic and write about it. It’s like your brain in a webpage. Well that’s where TiddlyWiki comes in. It lets you do just that. You have full control over what it looks like and how it behaves. Best of all, it’s a single file. Save it as a document and share your knowledge with other people. Put it on a flashdrive and record on-the-go. TiddlyWiki can change your life if you’d only utilize its potential. Best of all, it’s free. Visit

9. Netvibes


Meet your new homepage. Netvibes will bring you all your favorite RSS feeds, blog posts, news, weather, music, videos, e-mails, anything you name, all in one page. It even updates in real-time, so every time you visit the page you’ll get a whole new dose of information. Very customizable and visually attractive, Netvibes is definitely a home page worth having. Take a look for yourself. Visit

8. Jott


Have trouble remembering appointments or dates? Just jott it! Or maybe you lose all your sticky notes and index cards and forget to write things down in your planner. But if you’re like most people, you have a cell phone, and that’s always turned on. This is where Jott works its magic. You can program it to send you a text message, or call you and tell you, or even leave you a voice mail. Tell it whatever message you want. It’s your own personal transcription service. Visit

7. Peepel


The Peepel Online Office Suite is truly something worth checking out. There’s no need to shell out hundreds of dollars for Microsoft Office, or spend hours trying to desperately find a cheaper alternative. Just go on the site. Or maybe you’re tired of spending money upgrading your office suite software every few months. Maybe Microsoft programs just take too long to start, and you spent all your money on expensive software so you can’t afford a faster computer. Just go to Peepel. With enough features to rival even the most expensive software, you can easily accomplish whatever writing needs you may have on-the-go with Peepel’s word processor. Or maybe you need to make a spreadsheet. Peepel has that too. The best apart of Peepel, besides the fact that it’s free, is that you can open multiple applications and multi-task all in one browser window. Now that’s innovation. Visit

6. Youconvertit


What if you have a major presentation saved on your flashdrive and you desperately try to open it to a team of impatient and grumpy executives? What if the software you used to create it at home isn’t friendly with their fancy, corporate software? What do you do? Just go to Youconvertit. It easily allows you to convert any image, video, document, and even units to virtually any format / type. Fast, easy, and free, Youconvertit is worthy of a bookmark. Visit

5. Facebook


If you haven’t heard of Facebook, well that’s just pathetic. Facebook is the number one social networking site and probably the best. First of all, millions of people use it; odds are that everyone you know is probably on it. Facebook makes it easy to find people and connect with them whether it be your best friend or some kid you knew in the third grade. With an extensive and often updated list of applications, Facebook embeds thousands of web apps in itself. Fun, easy-to-use, and practical as well, Facebook may be a time-drainer, but if you absolutely must know what’s going on in all your friends’ lives, it’s a must. Visit htpp://

4. Cooliris


Cooliris is a browser extension that will make your normal, boring web surfing experience into something fully interactive and cinematic. It turns the pages into an extensive “3D Wall.” You can easily browse thousands of images, videos, and other media quickly and easily. It’s very customizable too– you can change the theme, background, number of rows, angles, slideshow speed, and more. Instead of manually clicking and searching through webpage after webpage, you can simply browse the never-ending wall with total ease and comfort. All you need to do is download, and the download’s free. Visit

3. Meebo


Meebo is great because it’s a universal messenger that you can access on the web. Meebo basically pioneered web messenging. It’s compatible with AIM, Yahoo, MSN, Myspace, and even its own instant messenging platform: Meebo! Absolutely no installation or downloads are required; just log-in and go. It’s totally secure so you don’t have to worry about any security issues; and plus, it’s free. Visit

2. Hulu


Hulu has the ability to completely replace your television set. You don’t even have to install any software or make an account. Just go to the website and you’ll instantly see video clips, full TV episodes and seasons, and even feature-length films. It is very easy to use its methodical service; you can either search or browse for your media. They make money off of tiny commercials and sponsored video clips embedded in your viewing. A very small price to pay. You may think of streaming video like youtube-quality, which is nearly unwatchable. But Hulu is nothing like that. In fact, they even have HD channels. All you need is an internet connection. Oh, and it’s free. Visit

1. Pandora


Pandora is your revolutionary radio station. It only plays the music you like. Type in the name of a song and it’ll play it, or if it can’t find it, it’ll play songs similar to it. Type in the name of an artist and it’ll play one of their songs, or bands similar to them. Using an advanced system, it’ll play songs with similar rhythms, beats, and music to whatever you type in. It’s not only a great way to listen to music, but to find music. You can create an account so it’ll keep track of all your personal radio stations. Best of all? It’s free. Visit
