Cool Websites #11
June 21, 2012
ZoomText user Kathy Kalaluhi sent in a bunch of websites that she thought other ZoomText users would find interesting and helpful. We liked the idea so much that it’s become a regular “column” in ZoomNews! Below are her suggestions and if you’d like to submit any websites for the next issue, please email them to Becca at !
- ZipList - ok if you do not have your grocery shopping list and recipes organized by now, you never will. But alas, another website for creating your grocery list and storing recipes. The site is partnered with some of the most popular recipe and chef’s databases to search for recipes to plan your weekly meals. Once you save a recipe to your recipe box, you can open the recipe up and add the ingredients to your shopping list. The site also offers coupons to registered members.
- SaveUp - whereas most financial institutions and credit cards offer you rewards for spending money, this site offers rewards for those who save. Once you create an account, you can store or link to your financial institutions and monitor your banking from this site. Once you make a deposit into an account, you are enrolled to win gift cards, money and other prizes.
- Pingg - yes that is two g’s at the end. No typo. This is a professional way to send invitations, greeting cards etc. You can also monitor RSVP’s and reminders from the site. There is a free membership or you can upgrade for $19.99 and receive more choices on the artwork available on your cards.
And a new category of sorts: “Best fruits in the orchard” - the best Mac apps for iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad! Some of them are available on the Android platform as well.
- Presenter - you can control your presentations from your iPhone. Won’t that impress somebody?
- No Wait - an app designed to be used in place of the traditional pager while waiting for a table in a restaurant.
- PaperDesk - a note taking app for the iPad that allows you to take notes by typing, writing with a stylus or by using your finger. You can organize your notes and/or customize your screen to suit your note taking preference. Not free, but is just $3.99 (and they do have a Lite version as well).
Thanks to Kathy for these great suggestions!
