The Web’s Best Apps
Some of the best free software resides right on the Web, meaning there’s nothing to download: You just fire up your browser and start working. And because your data lives online as well (in a secure, password-protected environment, of course), you can access it from any Internet-connected computer. Let’s take a look at three top Web applications, all of them free to use.

Google Calendar
www.google.com/calendar

An online calendar may not seem like a big deal, but once you start using it, you’ll wonder how you ever managed without it. Google Calendar lets you share your schedule with others, get appointment reminders via e-mail or text message, access your calendar on your phone and much more.

Picnik
www.picnik.com

Need to tweak those property photos you snapped just before you uploaded them to your site? Picnik provides a full-featured, browser-based photo editor. You can crop, resize, rotate and add special effects. When you’re done, you can save your photo to Flickr, your hard drive or just about anywhere else.

Zoho Writer
writer.zoho.com

An online word processor can be incredibly handy, as it enables you to create and edit documents on any PC—no more copying files between your home and office machines. Zoho Writer offers robust, Word-like word processing, unlimited storage for your documents and an optional Microsoft Word toolbar that lets you open or save your online documents with one click of the mouse. (The same goes for its spreadsheet counterpart, Zoho Sheet.) The service also lets you share documents with other users or even collaborate in real time on the same document. Let’s see Word do that. (Note: It can’t.)
