Top 7 Free Apps

Here are some of my favourite apps and services that I use on a daily basis. Best of all they don't cost a penny! Why not give them a go and let us know what you think, or let us know about any of your favourite apps in the comments below!


DropboxDropbox is a fantastic service for syncing files between computers and for online backups. You get 2Gb of storage space for free, with paid subscription options up to 100Gb. You can share online folders with others and access your files anywhere using a browser or mobile device.

Todo.lyI've tried many task list applications and services, but this is my favourite by far. You can create multiple categories (projects) and sub-categories. You can then simply click and drag tasks to order them within each project, or within other tasks. You can set set completion dates and print your lists.

Website :


KlokKlok is an Adobe Air desktop application with two versions, free and pro (£10). Create clients, projects and tasks; then simply click and drag your current task onto a box to start the work timer. You can see a colour coded graphical display of how you've spent your time and create timesheets for print or download as an excel file. The pro version also lets you import meetings from Google Calendar and has automated backups.

Website :


XmarksBy installing Xmarks on each of your computers, you can keep your internet bookmarks automatically synchronised. The free version works across most major browsers and the premium version (£7) will also sync with your mobile device.

Website :



Free password management service which runs on Mac, Windows and Linux. With one master password, LastPass will store passwords for all your online accounts which can be set to auto-fill or auto-login. The stored passwords are synchronised across all browsers and computers that you install the app on. I don't use LastPass for storing passwords on high-risk or client sites and I make sure my master password is strong, but this app saves me having to remember (or request replacement) passwords for lots of sites which require login to access.

Website :


FeedlyIntegrates with Google Reader to display news stories from your favourite websites. Feedly acts as your own personal online magazine, showing you the latest stories across all of your sources. You can sort sources into categories, recommend and share articles of interest and discover new sites based on your interests. A great way to keep on top of the latest news and developments all in one place.

Website :


280dailyA refreshingly anti-social web app! 280Daily is a private and personal online journal. You're restricted to 280 characters, so it doesn't take long to write and you can set a friendly email reminder so you don't forget. It's accessible from any desktop or mobile web browser, you can upload photos to include with your entries, export entries to PDF or even have them printed and bound in a book!
