There are plenty of cloud-based storage services to choose from, but most fizzle when it comes to simplifying the task of uploading files and immediately sharing with friends, family, or co-workers. Cloudup is the latest cleared for liftoff, but a couple of limitations prevent it from getting off the launch pad quite yet.
Plain and simple, Conjure fixes a problem. In fact, “simple” describes Conjure in many ways, from setup, to design, to the learning curve, to execution. Perhaps if my teachers had used this instead of a projector and a laser pointer, I would have paid more attention in class. (Well, perhaps.)
Apple’s simple Address Book app (redubbed Contacts in Mountain Lion) can store your contact details, upload them to iCloud, which syncs them to other devices--and that’s about it. But we hate having to launch it to see, edit, or create a contact. Cobook takes that pain away. Plus, you don’t have to re-enter or import existing contacts: Cobook makes full use of Address Book’s database, so anything you modify with Cobook is still available to your other devices using iCloud.
Many apps can help you build a website, but most cater to people who aren’t too concerned about the code that’s generated, or about taking advantage of the latest developments in web design. Dreamweaver is the opposite—in fact, it’s pretty much the only game in town if you’re a serious web designer working on a Mac. And serious web designers have their work cut out for them these days, creating sites that work on desktop browsers as well as on smartphones and tablets—designs must be flexible enough to accommodate any screen resolution, big or small.
