7 Free Online Applications

I love the age we are living in. Using web-based apps rather than desktops apps makes it possible to get things done on any computer. In fact this little exercise in having my main PC go down has only taught me that I need to move even more of how I function off of one centralized PC and onto the a decentralized internet server.

Here are my Top 7 Free Online Applications

  1. Facebook – Keep in touch with friends, colleagues and network with other pastors – I need to use this more
  2. Vitalist – Ultimate Free GTD todo list
  3. WordPress.com – Great Free Blogging. It’s free, why not start your own blog today?
  4. Delicious – Free comprehensive bookmarking. Access your bookmarks on any computer. Bookmark thousands of sites and easily tag to search and quickly find what you’ve bookmarked.
  5. Google – One login gets you access to:
    • Email – hands down the best, least spammy, most searchable email ever.
    • Reader – My RSS reader of choice.
    • Docs – Great basic word processing and spreadsheets. (Also does presentations)
    • Calendar – The easiest, best calendar I’ve ever used
    • Maps – with a google login you can save locations and searches that are accessible from ANY computer.
  6. Youtube – logging into Google also logs me into YouTube! I use my account not only to upload my own videos but also to quickly “favorite” videos I want to reference later.
  7. Flickr – Upload and share your photos for free. The creative commons search feature allows you to find great free images to use legally in for worship.

Despite my main computer being out of commission I’ve been able to access all of the above.
