Web tools: Applications on web 2

Its weekend readers!! but I may need to spend some time for my project..

Well…recently I saw a interview of ZOHO founders Sridhar vembu and Raju vegesna, quite impressive and inspiring for people like me (tech start up aspirant). Some time a thought always itching in my mind that why indian tech gaint always goes for services for other companies rather going for their own products(I can understand initially they need stick to stand but now they are billion dollar companies and they can afford in research). In my opinion only product companies can sustain unlimited growth where services companies has limitation.

However quite inspiring from new bread of Indian entrepreneur(they going to stay in market in long term…I m sure).

Lets come back to our main topic…This week, lets look at couple of good tools that provides free service…


Many of the times I was wondering like why dont we have a tool that we can create or edit PDF files like MSWORD or EXCEL. Still we dont have proper PDF creators(though couple of PDF makers available but needs ghostscripts or unknown weird driver install) that we cannt rely up on. Here is the solution, online pdf maker which will convert any format file(visually recognized format like .doc,.jpg,.html..) to PDF with no hassle installing and instantly downloads the converted file and its for free no shareware,keyzens..:-).

Another excellent feature of PDF is “Web2PDF online widget”. Now a days we are floating on Widgets web world(will discuss you in a separate post), PDF Widget is so cool feature that we can embed a snippet of code in our web site and that would convert into a downloadable pdf file.

I tried to publish the widget in this post, but wordpress doesnt allow me to keep javascript on blogs. Try out from the site…its a good feature.

picnic site.com

Flash based online photo editing tool, so far there are so many tools available online for photo editing but picnic has vast integration with lot photo store websites like Flickr, Picassa, facebook and few more. Significant features of picnik are User Interface which is easy to understand and easy to use, quick uploads (wooh!! very quick…I dont know what kind of algorithms they are using..=:]) and integration with other photo services (almost nearly web3.0 services).

Also predefined templates for photo editing available like Black&white, sepia, tint and more..no need to be a photoshop expert to use these feature..every thing so cool except advance option which need to get upgrade but if you are into photoshop designing and editing wouldnt be expensive.

Hope you all have Happy weekend and stay connected for more & more cool stuff…
