As you will know, Google Chrome is gaining many more users every day. This is partly because (in my opinion) it is the best looking web browser, the fastest, but most importantly, the most expandable. So I thought that I would show you my top 5 Google Chrome apps.
Evernote is a great app because it allows you to take notes on nearly any platform (ie. Windows, Mac, iOS, Android etc.), synchronise between these platforms, attach files and clip web pages. This is great if you use more than one device and when in, for example a lecture you use a laptop, but back at your room you use a desktop then everything will be there waiting for you. It also has great ways to organise things in notebooks so you can keep everything about, for example, a holiday in the same place.
Angry Birds is a great app for the casual gamer, whether you are taking a break from work, or playing it when you shouldn’t be, Angry Birds is great fun. It has all of the levels with secret “Hidden Gems” which are only available in the Google Chrome version of the app.
Another app for passing the time is the Kindle Cloud Reader. Most people have a Kindle, or at least a device that supports the service with an app (even a PC), but now you can read in your browser. It will keep your position in a book synchronised between all of your devices and it has a fully customisable reading environment.
Most web apps are not quite as good as the desktop alternative, but Sliderocket is! It has a HTML viewer for iOS and has some great themes (which PowerPoint doesn’t have). You can even hold meetings whilst showing your presentation online, in HD. The price starts at free, so give it a try.
Tweetdeck has been around for a while and it is a great app on most devices. One problem that I had with the desktop app (which is almost identical to the web app) is that when I scheduled a tweet, it would not appear on all of my PCs, but if I use the Tweetdeck web app, this is not a problem. It is great, so give it a try.
Hopefully this post has helped you to get a better selection of apps in your browser.
