Against All Odds: Moving hearts and minds

Against All Odds: Moving hearts and minds
WEB APPS REVIEW

Apps can move.

No, I’m not talking about animation or portability.  I’m talking about moving the mind...and the heart.

Against All Odds succeeds in telling one hard truth, loud and clear.

Being a refugee…it sucks.

My Writing Spot: A writing desk in the clouds

My Writing Spot: A writing desk in the clouds
WEB APPS REVIEW

My words are at one with the clouds, man.  My verbs are raindrops and my punctuation is a hailstorm.

 

SLAP!

Platoon HQ: Marshalling troops the hard way.

Platoon HQ: Marshalling troops the hard way.
WEB APPS REVIEW

‘Platoon’ is and will always be one of my favourite ever films.  Perhaps it’s Lance Henriksen.  Perhaps it’s the beauty of Barber’s ‘Adagio for Strings’ as Charlie Sheen is airlifted away.   A war movie with soul, that one.

A pity the movie has nothing to do with its namesake app.  Platoon HQ the ‘staff management app’ isn’t as beautiful and I think there were a few more causalities in the end.  Mostly my brain cells as I bashed my head repeatedly against the desk.

Dropbox: Sharing is caring

Dropbox: Sharing is caring
WEB APPS REVIEW

Okay, when talking about file sharing, ‘caring’ is probably getting a little overly sentimental.  Sharing is daring…in a business sense…maybe?  Or sharing is preparing?  Sharing is…despairing at ever finding a catchy slogan for this paragraph.  Let's just say that, in this instance, sharing is good, like pudd…ing.

And the pudding of the day is Dropbox.

How does Dropbox work?  It’s a cloud storage centre for your images, documents and other assorted info bits.  Not sounding like anything too cutting edge yet, right?  There’s plenty of those out there...

Basecamp: Getting Stuff Done

Basecamp: Getting Stuff Done
WEB APPS REVIEW

Basecamp is your camouflaged tent headquarters on the battlefield that is business, or charity work, or the Lacework Covention…whatever does it for you.  Basecamp is where you organize your thoughts, and your people, and muster your resources for the big offensive, or award-winning doily.

What do I mean by ‘stuff’?  Things, jobs, tasks, projects, world conquests…stuff.  Basecamp is your camouflaged tent headquarters on the battlefield that is business, or charity work, or the Lacework Covention…whatever does it for you.  Basecamp is where you organize your thoughts, and your people and muster your resources for the big offensive, or award-winning doily.

Prezi: Presenting your 'bits'

Prezi: Presenting your 'bits'
WEB APPS REVIEW

Prezi, a funky way to do presentations. It’s like Power Point, only less likely to induce drowsiness or depression.

Warning, do not operate heavy machinery after a Power Point presentation. What about after a Prezi…ntation? As far as I can tell, you should be fine.

How’s it work? You’re basically chucking all of your presentation bits onto a blank canvas. Words, images, URLs and videos…an informative power chunder onto the pristine bathroom floor of the imagination.

Smartsheet - Some very clever bedding

Smartsheet - Some very clever bedding
WEB APPS REVIEW
A smart sheet?  Does it sing you to sleep at night?  Tell you when it needs washing? Go out trick or treating at Halloween?  Does it’s best not to twist itself around your legs when you and your significant other are…

No, that would just be weird! Smartsheet is a project management tool.  A big, clever, sheet of dynamic info. Keep track of what you’re doing, and keep others in the loop at the same time.  Kind of like a shared spreadsheet, although much much cooler than Excel...
