Online Services
« on: September 08, 2008, 02:19:17 AM »
What have you found to be the most useful and/or interesting online service?

ThinkFree Office has been very interesting as a word processor as well as a few additions.

It's a bit different then other online office sites in that you can download the office suite to your desktop and work independent of the online service. And even offline you can work on documents, keeping a copy on your computer as well as online of all your documents.

It has only 1gb of storage for documents and syncs with the desktop application.

But anyway, I have quite a few online services bookmarked, but this one stood out as different though MS Office has an online deal I haven't tried.

ThinkFree Office is free.

Two services that stand out for me:

(1) Gmail, and
(2) our own Veign's webware.

Although I have a GMail account, I don't access it via the web. I do access my Yahoo! e-mail online though. Other than Google itself (for searching) and banking, I *think* that this is the only online service that I use.

Hmm...too many to list...

Almost every application nowadays have their own unique twist to it that it really depends on your criteria.

For example, SearchMe.com is one of those visual search engines that could be wow for someone who's never seen it but at the same time, it can be a poor replacement for the now dead Pagebull which was much lighter on resources and didn't require flash to be enabled.

Another service like Diplomacy Checker would be absolutely fantastic to a writer and is something that I would want for any forum to have but it's also not something in demand and many won't be impressed or interested about it.

Don't forget my Online Development Tools (which is growing).

And thanx for the nod.
