Utilities and Resources
- GeeMail – a desktop client for Google Mail based on Adobe AIR.
- LiberKey – a system for installing and keeping updated over 300 free programs (both open and closed source) on a Windows machine. All of the programs are portable meaning that they can run directly off a USB key without installing anything additional on the computer (this is very useful if you’re working on a computer where you don’t have administrative rights).
- PintPay – enables you to add recurring payments and subscriptions to your site in 5 minutes. Free to setup, and no merchant account or gateway necessary.
- Rapportive – a plugin that enhances GMail, adding a Twitter interface and more.
- Resophnotes – a free note taking software that syncs with the “SimpleNote” cloud-based note taking service. Very convenient for the student on the go.
- Tag Galaxy – a time-killing web app that uses Papervision3D to explore Flickr photo tags as virtual solar systems. Enter a tag, and related tags appear as planets around the initial choice. Completely useless, but fun to play with.
- Web2DB – send a file to your Dropbox from its URL.
