Web Apps Great for Web Developers and Designers
Friday, August 12th, 2011
These apps are a great addition to any developer or designer’s toolbox.
Need to generate a nice grid? Well, this thing is for you. 960gs is a great option, but I prefer to go with this one because of the great generator for the grid they have there. Of course, you can always go with my personal grid, CSSWORK.
I use this really often – Kuler is an adobe-made flash website where people upload color schemes. If you’re color-blind, I would suggest to go with this.
You all know Google, right? Of course you do, we aren’t cavemen. Well, imagine Google, except instead of searching the whole web, it searches icon sites. Need an icon? Open up IconFinder.
Wunderlist is a great task management app. Enough said.
Cacoo is a great wireframing/mockup app. This one is a little better than the rest because it has real-time collaboration. If you’re in a team with other designers, check this out.
This is another nice mock-up app. It’s got a great interface, where you can just drag ‘n drop elements onto the canvas. You can sign in with your google account, so no need to go through the hassle of creating an account.
You all know flash. Well, this is CSS3 flash. It is definitely lacking some features, but I’m sure they will get added later on.
WooRank is a free website analytics tool. However, it doesn’t give precise numbers – it’s more of a checklist for your website. Favicons, titles, SEO, headers, that sort of stuff.
Media Queries are really starting to get popular now. This is an app that allows you to check the exact breakpoints of your layout if you’re using media queries in it.
