Best of online tools

Posted by Chad Lemon | 6:44 PM | | 2 comments »

Over the months we've written about a range of online tools for office productivity tasks including word processing, spreadsheets, calendars, presentation software and a bunch of other semi-randomness. All of these options are great for freeing yourself from the lack of portability and unnecessary cost of traditional desktop apps as well as introducing a few new tools more unique to the web.

Josh Catone at ReadWriteWeb has compiled a handy list of "10 Must Have Online Office Apps". This list includes several categories and apps that we've covered before and a handful that we will probably address in the future. As is evidenced by the comments on that post (Don't forget..., I recommend..., I would include...), this list isn't exhaustive, but provides a good cross-sampling of the options.

What apps do you use? Are you pretty well tied to the desktop, working using completely online app, or blending the best of both worlds?

    I don't know how I survived doing ministry without these three sites,, and

    Everything a worship pastor needs can be found in those three sites.

    Its not your typical app...but its great for sharing presentations around the office or globally.
    ( Also a great social and crowd-driven resource. Like flickr meets digg for presentations.
