It makes all of your forward planning for your blog an absolute breeze. And the more you use it, the more you’ll wonder how you ever lived without it.
If Google Forms is not yet your go-to form maker, it’s time for us to change your mind. You may think you know everything there is to know about Google Forms, but thanks to Google’s use-it-and-you’ll-work-it-out attitude, perhaps you don’t.

You think you’re not on Facebook? Think again. Facebook no doubt has a shadow profile made just for you.

What you may not have realised is that this led users to know more about how Facebook stores our data – and shows us clearly that Facebook does indeed have shadow profiles on most of us.
If you’ve ever tried to make an online survey, you’ve probably tried a few tools here and there. You’ve no doubt enjoyed some features of one product, and some of another, while being frustrated at limitations you’ve come across.

Are you sick of trawling through your browsing history to find that one article you saw last week and suddenly wanted to send to someone? Or have you been researching a particular topic only to wonder which of the many pages you viewed was the one you want to take another look at? Right, then cottonTracks is going to blow your socks off.
Today’s web apps and extensions seem to have finally cottoned on to the idea that pictures are extremely useful when it comes to creativity and desirability. I guess we have the likes of Pinterest and Tumblr to thank for that. A collection of images manages to express so much in a quick viewing. It gives a great overview to the sorts of things that appeal to the collector, and makes you wonder if you like the item yourself.
Remember the mass scare on Facebook a while back where almost everyone changed their status to “I want to stay connected to you PRIVATELY, but you need to uncheck this that and the other”? It has come around again, but this time it’s a meme about Facebook’s “Graphic App”. And guess what? It’s yet another completely pointless pile of rubbish tips that won’t protect anyone from anything. The first giveaway is in the supposed “Graphic App”, which doesn’t actually exist. From there on it just gets more and more silly.
Yes, it’s possible to manage every single aspect of your life with a computer and a smartphone. The question, however, is not about if it is possible, but rather why anyone would do this.

You’ll see the systems I use, the apps that I rely on, and find out more about my reasoning for all this. You may think I’m a little crazy right now, but just wait until you’ve read the whole article.

Stick an interactive book in front of a small kid and you will teach them easily and most likely find that they love the book. If it’s also free, gorgeous and full of great lessons, there’s nothing to lose. Install the following great eBook apps for an extremely memorable experience.
When you chat via instant messenger clients, do you add smileys? Do you also like to add other emoticons to let people know when you’re hungry, bored, stressed and the rest? If so, you’ll probably enjoy using Facebook’s new stickers. These honestly-not-at-all-just-like-an-emoticon images are the latest craze for Facebook IM and they’re quite a bit of fun. How different are they from regular emoticons? Well, just you wait and see.
What do you use when you need to draw a diagram? Do you do the whole thing from scratch? Do you create each and every box with a series of four lines, or do you use a program that creates the box for you? Would you go a step further and use a template? Would you appreciate ready-made images of desk furniture to design your office layout? If you’re anything like me, you’re always ready to make the job as easy as possible. That’s where Cacoo comes in.
