Your daily dose of Web 2.0 sites

Wednesday, November 4th, 2009 by Servage

There are sooo many web 2.0 apps out there, that it can be quite hard to find what you really need. When searching for a service or and application you can use or integrate in your project, I often find myself overwhelmed by a rather large amount of possibilities – of which many turn out not exactly being the right thing. Of course a large supply of web 2.0 apps, open source scripts, code snippets etc. is nice, but sometimes I find it gets to the point where the large availability of such solutions obfuscates the possibilities. It’s hard to get an exact overview of which service does what, and more importantly, what it does not do. I personally find, that briefly browsing through the individual projects websites is the most efficient way of getting a good overview of their features. However, there are so many results not leading to project sites when searching for “best CMS”, “paypal CakePHP module”, “AJAX star rating” or whatever else you might be currently looking for. Often you end up on discussion boards, mailing lists or something else, where people are discussing problems, support, development, but not digging the general overview of features you are really looking for. So wouldn’t it be great if the search engine could give you a list of project websites when searching for a specific term?

Unfortunately the search engines are not yet so far developed, that they know what exactly we want to achieve, when searching for a term. Therefore I have come to really like and enjoy browsing through Feedmyapp.com. Both on a daily or weekly basis I find it interesting to see what’s new out there, but also for finding a solution for a specific project, I find it a great resource to quickly gain an overview over, for example, available CMS systems.

Feedmyapp is not powered by a search engine or by random users submissions. Projects can submit their information to the editors of Feedmyapp, and they will check and publish the project afterwards. Thereby the database has a very high quality and relevance.

Have fun browsing the wast possibilities of modern web 2.0 apps – but be aware: It’s highly addictive ;-)
