    Billable – like it a lot. Nice editable invoice generator. I only hope that this project isn’t over and there will be next versions of this app.

    CSS3 Generator – WOW!:) (wow for the application)

    One question – why all css3 generators help you make round corners, shadows and gradients?:)

    It seams like css3 would be just perfect for websites at early 90’s, all flashy with mp3’s in the background and only god knows what else:)

    Cheers.

       that’s because most people search specifically for those generators :)

    Anniversary alerts is pretty much common. As it can also be found even on cheapest cellphones available. But could be a nice back up for anniversaries, (just wanna make sure that they are not forgotten).
