An ok site for WordPress themes. I can't say that they're too pricy because a lot of themes are around $55. Right now I'm only looking for free themes and they do have a couple to choose from, I'd like to see a few more and the same goes for the premium ones. I understand they take a long time to ma...

I use Boomerang to send emails all the time. It's supposedly unprofessional to send emails late at night, but I do it all the time because Boomerang let's you schedule when you want to send your email. Granted you are only allotted a certain number each month, but you can pay to upgrade that number. I do have to say that sometimes when I click to edit my email, it doesn't show up properly and I'll have to restart it or just go through Gmail. Also, I'm not sure how well the tracking part of the email works.

I love it! I read all the time and I had been looking for a Netflix like subscription service for books. Sure if you don't read a lot each month you might not like it or get your money's worth, but you won't be able to put this app down! I must warn you though that unlike Netflix, if you share your account everyone can see what you're reading. Also, they don't have the newest and top selling books, I believe they have to a few months old before they go on Oyster.

A part of me wants to give it 5 stars, but the other part wants me to give it only 1 star. Unless you're having trouble with a middle name for a baby I really don't see why you'd need to have an app to come up with your child's name. It makes matches based on numbers. Not very personal if you ask me and what happens when your kid wants to know who or what they were named after. What are you going to say, an app?

I can see why this site would receive mixed reviews because sometimes it can be a hit or miss on whether or not the music is worthy of attention as someone else on here said. Of course some categories won't be as popular, but hey you can't please everyone! I like it.

I know it's main purpose is for analytics, but I use it to link people to specific comments on Instagram or specific posts. In my opinion it's much easier to use than Instagram and there's much more to look at. I'd recommend Statigram to brands or users that have a lot of followers.

I use Hootsuite for my job and my personal Twitter. While it's great to schedule tweets, it's not so great in other areas. I wish there was a stream to show all your notifications in one place like how it is on Twitter. The design is a little boring, but I guess if it gets the job done it'll do.

Weebly is a good place to create your first website. It's as easy as it gets and if you feel a little more advanced you can upgrade to a premium account. I'm a little bit more advanced in my profession so I don't use Weebly anymore, but it's a great place to start off.

This is such a simple concept and site, but I find it very interesting. It's always cool to scroll through and see the latest kinds of products people are developing. I usually come here once a week to see what the newest idea is.

ShoeDazzle is like those subscription boxes. You basically start out taking a short quiz and then a stylist will pick out a pair of shoes for you. As a new member you get 50% off and free shipping. I've never recieved a pair of shoes that I hadn't loved.

This is a really new startup. They are trying to help get people jobs at startups in NYC. I sent in my application and even had an email convo with the founder. Really cool guy, but I am a little worried about the process. They just send out batches of resumes to lots of startups. I feel like since there isn't a personal touch, there is very little chance of me getting a job. I wish they were more hands on, or if they had a rep who fought for you or something.

Clever idea - glad to see its catching on! Not
quite as problematic as Yic-Yak, Secret, Whisper, and crew because its
linked to an individual profile. Fun so far - I have friends telling me
things and its becoming something of an addiction as it becomes a forum about me... appealing to my ego yes as my friends answer questions like "what one word describes me?" or "when did we meet." Only a few jerks but easily handled on Prattel.com. I guess its like a yearbook on steroids. Should be interesting to watch as it grows and its growing fast.

The only con I have about using Weebly is the little footer on the bottom of each page that doesn't go away unless you upgrade your account. This truly is the easiest way to build your own website. It makes anyone's site look professional.

Great app to follow all of my favorite blogs. I use this on my phone and I've noticed that their most recent update was not much of an update because sometimes I get logged out or can't log in. Hopefully they fix it with another update real soon.

I LOVE this site. I use it all the time when I write. It makes very useful suggestions and more often than not I listen to what the app says. Of course I can't take everything to heart, but it's a lot easier and quicker than sending my writing off to someone else for a quick edit.

Eventful certainly has a wide variety of events to get tickets for. You can buy tickets to concerts, the Color Me Rad 5k, festivals, and I even think movies. My only problem with them is I think I bought tickets through them once for a concert in LA and ever since the emails I get every so often from them are telling me about events in San Jose. It's obviously a simple fix like hitting the unsubscribe or something, but last time I checked San Jose wasn't near LA so I'm not sure why I'd even want to see those events.

I'm not a fan of the way they present their content, but it certainly does work. I don't see them as often now, but awhile back there wasn't a day where I didn't see a link to a story from Upworthy on my Facebook.

I'm unsure which is worse. This or Tinder. I'm really not sure why I'd want an app where I can go through my Facebook friends and see who wants to get "down" or who wants to go on a date. This is just plain gross.

To me their website just screams scam. I have seen many people say that a lot of the profiles on here are fake and I totally believe it. There were several occasions where I sent a message to someone and no response. When I wasn't receiving any responses I decided to send several messages a week for two or three weeks. How many replies did I get? One. This site needs to be cleaned out of all the fakes profiles or just deleted altogether.

Cameo is like a bunch of Vines stitched together because you can only record 6 seconds of video at a time. It's an ok app, I haven't really seen anything that blew me away. The editing tools are nothing spectacular, just basic things.

I LOVE JustUnfollow. It's the perfect add-on to Twitter. It's great because you can easily unfollow people who don't follow you back or see who unfollows you. Another awesome feature is having the ability to disable those annoying welcome messages some accounts tweet out. I recommend this to all of my social media friends.
