Spanish language Facebook scams.
Oh look, it’s a Chrome App roundup post. Because if there’s one thing the world needs, it’s another one of those.
For anyone still awake, here comes the trainwreck.
Organises your email brilliantly, makes it easy to keep track of everything, adds a nice “to do / waiting on / done” box on the left hand side and also reminds me to use labels for mails.
2) AdBlock Plus
Well, this is a no brainer.
3) App Launcher
Simple drop down box to, er, launch your apps quickly.
Makes Google Tasks a heck of a lot better. Combine with ActiveInbox to round up those non email tasks and you’re onto a winner.
Makes your calendar useful, as opposed to the default which I always thought sucked a fair bit. Adds a nice “coming up next, and when” countdown timer on the toolbar which is extremely useful. The desktop notification popups are the icing on the cake if (like me) you forget to go check the calendar all the time.
Best one I’ve seen, you can add a bunch of your most commonly used currencies and it’ll remember them. Just hit the button on the toolbar, the box appears and when you fill in one currency slot they’ll all auto update to the correct converted amounts. Awesome!
Best translate pad I’ve seen, remembers the text you enter and works like a charm. Also has a “swap language” button so no fiddling around when trying to switch around your selected languages.
Best countdown timer I’ve seen for Chrome. Lists number of days left on the toolbar, and clicking it brings up a calendar that will tell you all sorts of useful info depending on which day you hover over.
Use ActiveInbox for email based tasks, Better Google Tasks for random, not so important stuff and this for anything which would find adding comments to a “Tasks: work in progress” webpage handy. 3% increase in productivity ahoy!
If you’re sick of having ten notepads open on the desktop, just use this. No frills text editor, saves everything as you write it and tells you how many words (and other things) at the bottom of the page. Particularly useful if your stupid blog software decides to crash (or your browser explodes) and everything is lost. Hey, it happens.
11) Session Buddy.
Saves a collection of open tabs into a group, meaning you don’t have a ton of crap all over the place every minute of the day. I don’t even bother with bookmarks since I started using this.
WHAT I WANT:
A toolbar based clock that shows me the time for the timezone I want, and not the one I’m in set to my local time. Best one I’ve found so far is this, but even then it shows my local time on the toolbar and I have to click to bring up the non local time. Somebody must know of an app that does this?
Not a very long hunt, because here they are.No Light.This Machine.Stupidly cheap, and easy to download. “Dadada” is particularly brilliant, but you can listen to everything and judge for yourselves. These are somewhat tricky to get hold of if you’re not in New Zealand, because they only seem to appear on their iTunes and nowhere else. The alternative is the 3 album CD, but (like me) you probably already went out, bought “Passive me, Aggressive you” then found out about the EPs.I *think* doing it this way comes out a little cheaper than the 3 CD effort anyway, so go web go.
