|Check out some of the latest makeuseof discoveries. This edition turned out pretty good so I titled it as ‘Essential’. As usual, all listed websites are FREE (or come with decent free account option). Enjoy!|
1. [NO LONGER WORKS] Asterpix – video annotation and editing tool. It allows users to easily create interactive “˜hypervideos’ and share them with others. Hypervideos enable viewers to: 1. Get more information on video objects of interest during video playback. 2. Navigate directly to specific video scenes without having to watch the entire video.
2. [NO LONGER WORKS] BlueString – put your favorite photos and videos into an interactive slideshow and share it with others. You can also invite your friends (or family) to contribute to a slideshow by adding their own pictures.
3. WhoCalledUs – a directory of unlisted phone numbers (i.e. for “˜name unavailable’ numbers); a site where people can share comments about the identity of phone spammers. In case you ever wondered who’s calling, WhoCalled.us is a place to find it out. More on WhoCalled.us
6. [NO LONGER WORKS] Jangl – excellent service that lets you send free voicemail to anyone via email. Jangl provides a local number for the message recipient to call you back, without sharing your real number. The recipient can get connected to you and pay only local calling fees from almost anywhere in the world.
7.– simple service that lets you forward favorite (or important) RSS feeds to your email inbox. No registration required.
8.– Rst2a allows you to create easy-to-read documents in plain text format. Rst2a keeps document content and the style/formatting of content separate. This enables anyone to easily change the look, style and format of the document after it has been created. Seems like something heavy writers should find very useful.
9.– really cool and totally free service for eBay users. Basically, it’s a last minute notification and bidding service for favorite auctions. Place last minute bids from PC or directly from mobile.
NOTE: These are just half of the applications we have added to our directory in the last couple of days. To keep up-to-date on all directory additions subscribe to MakeUseOf directory here (via RSS or email).
