Zoho Docs 2.0 has landed in the App Store, and the most notable change is that it's now a universal app. Now you're able to take advantage of the app's mobile productivity powers on your...

Zoho rebrands as FakeOffice (not really, but it's catchy, no?)

Over the past few years, Microsoft has had to contend with increasing competition from free, web-based office suites such as Google Docs and Zoho Office. And when I say contend, I mean, maybe start taking notice of. There's no doubt that MS Office is still the 800 pound gorilla in the word processing, spreadsheet, and database field. But free competitors including those online applications and...

Zoho Projects now integrates with Google Apps

Although Zoho offers a suite of apps that competes with Google Apps, there's no reason for them to let the huge Google Apps userbase slip through their fingers when it comes to project management.

You can now sign into Zoho Projects with your Google Apps login, and plug your Google Docs right into...

ToonDoo is for educational use, allowing kids to make comic strips in the classroom (even if they can't draw), and...

WizeHive: Collaboration tool for busy people

Because I work almost exclusively in remote-based teams, I'm always looking for new tools and services that can help me manage my daily tasks and effectively collaborate with my team members. One of the biggest problems I have with some collaboration systems is that they require everyone to login and collaborate using the web app itself. This is great if you are always in one place or in a...

Zoho Chat 2.0 takes aim at Meebo, falls a bit short

The service is a web-based instant messenger that lets you connect to multiple IM networks to chat simultaneously with your AOL, Windows Live, Yahoo!, Gogole, and other contacts. In other words, Zoho Chat is a lot like Meebo. But Meebo has some features that are still missing from Zoho Chat, including the...

OpenItOnline for Firefox opens Office, image files with web apps

By now, many of you are probably using web-based office suites like Zoho, Google Docs, or Thinkfree as your primary office applications. If you do and you're a Firefox user as well, you'll probably love the OpenIT Online addon.
