My image Phrays – is a free to use website that lets you learn a new word everyday. Account holders can create sentences using that word. Your created sentence should try to fully illustrate the word’s meaning. Visitors can vote on the sentence they like best; the sentence with the most words is awarded as the winner and is displayed on the site’s homepage.

My image InDinero – Startups and small businesses often have a hard time seeing where they stand financially. Tools like Mint.com focus on individual consumers while software like QuickBooks are a lot of hassle. InDinero is a new tool that makes it easy for small businesses to manage their finances online by integrating their bank account, credit cards and PayPal accounts.

My image MocksUp – A plethoria of websites today are popping up offering slightly unique ways to share information online. Mocksup is one such site. This aptly-named site allows you to share your mockups with clients or friends. Upload pictures of how you think your project will look, create a few little internal links and you’ve got a quick mock-up you can share with the world.
My image Ionz – More of a survey than an actual application, Ionz is a fun momentary distraction and creates a kind of art for you to admire. You answer a quick series of simplistic questions, ranging from what kind of food you like to your favorite social network. You are then shown how your choices compare to the tens of thousands of other people who have also used Ionz. Read more: Ionz: See How You Compare To Other Tech-Savvy Types.
My image Book.ly – College students spend a fortune on their textbooks. Moreover each book is usually used only one semester – after the semester the book becomes useless to many students. If you want to save money throughout the entire college- book-buying experience, pay Book.ly a visit. Read more: Book.ly: Sell College Textbooks & Save Money While Buying Them.
