20 Useful & Nicely Designed Web Applications

Posted · Category: Inspiration

We need to be inspired to be in style. All of us are looking to give the website the edge to make it one in a million. We look for the style that allows the website to speak for itself, because a picture is tantamount to a million words. Last but not the least, it is always the first impression that leaves a touch; sometimes it might even metamorph in to first love.

    Opps… That’s quick!

    GoodBarry’s parent company has just been acquired by Adobe. It was still working few days ago…

    Blinksale is my favorite of these. It’s so unconventional in it’s color scheme and everything. And still it perfectly works and looks beautiful. That’s Genius. A work of an artist _and_ a usability master. Pff I’m getting sentimental.

    I have been using Blinksale for about two years now. I invoice some of my customers using that app. It creates PDF invoices and works great with paypal. It’s the best online invoicing program I’ve come across on the web.

    Another winner is Remember The Milk :-) It´s my number one!

  • Jon Karnal

    Awesome list of apps. If I can add one more to that list I would certainly recommend Curdbee (http://curdbee.com) for online invoicing. I have used both Blinksale and Freshbooks before, but Curdbee is the perfect app for freelancers like myself and costs much less. They offer complete free account without restricitions.

    What I like about carbonmade is that it is fresh, but also timeless. I can’t remember them doing a redesign at all, and they’ve been around for a while.
