I can't count the number of times that a Web site prompts me to have some kind of Eureka! moment. If I read a slammin' review, I have to tell myself to investigate said product at my local retailer of choice. If I read an awesome article, I have to remind myself to consider subscribing to the magazine at some point in the future. If I see a really funny cat, well, I want to make note of what I can do to make my own cat look just as silly.
It's not very fun to keep a running Word document open to collect all these thoughts. Nor--heaven forbid--would I ever turn to the archaic concept of a yellow sticky note or manual notepad. Blegh. Thankfully, the Google Chrome extension Note Anywhere keeps me away from the Stone Age of note-taking by dropping the digital equivalent of said sticky notes right into my browser. And, yes, these notes stay with the given Web page I stick them on. That's just plain cool.
Quick. A project just came on your radar, but you've got a lot on your plate already. You don't want to forget about a key fact or detail of what you have to do, but it's almost closing time. Or maybe you're just lazy and don't have any of those yellow sticky notes nearby to write down the details. Or maybe you just don't feel like logging on to your Google Calendar to create yet another reminder of whatever it is you have to accomplish.
Lots of possible scenarios, one awesome solution. This week's featured Web app is the ultimate reminder tool for any little fact or meeting time that you need to keep on your radar. It's extremely simple to use--in fact, it would probably take you less time to schedule yourself a little task update using this tool than it would any other software application there is, period. It's even faster to access than Notepad.
The name of the app is (appropriately enough) Remindr. Don't schedule the reading of this post for later. Click the jump right now and I'll give you a quick look at what this awesome Web app actually does!
Sometimes, you just need to make some folders--a lot of folders. More than 5 folders, more than twenty folders, more than a hundred folders--you need to generate more folders than you've ever created in a single setting. Maybe this is for work, maybe you're finally getting organized with all the pictures you've taken over the past five years, or maybe you just like makin' folders.
Either way, the typical folder creation process goes a little something like this: you find an open directory, you right-click somewhere, you select "new folder," and you repeat this process a thousand times (with a few extra hours thrown in for renaming).
A handy little application has just come to my attention and, by handy, I mean, "it saves you countless hours of having to repeat the aformentioned frustrating process." If you've ever needed to create and customize a number of folders in a single sitting, then you'll definitely want to click the jump and behold the wonders of this week's top download: New Folder Wizard!
