What Are the Best Chrome Apps?
I've seen threads like this done for OS X and Windows so how about Chrome? There's a misconception that Chrome OS is just a web browser meant for reading and Youtube, but there are lots of great apps out there. What apps are just really well designed, provide essential functionality, or just exemplify a great experience?
Just say the list of apps and indicate if it's offline or packaged and why you like it. I'll start.
Google Drive/Docs (Offline) - It has great cloud storage with lots of space and has really grown more full featured as an office suite over the last few years and collaboration just works.
Twisted Wave - It's basically the Chrome version of Audacity. It's the most fully featured web audio editor out there and has lots of effects and control.
We Video - It's the most full featured web video editor I could find. It syncs through Drive and has lots of controls and effects.
SkyDrive/Office Web Apps - It preserves the formatting of Office docs perfectly so anything that needs formatting goes through this.
Google Keep (Packaged) - It's a simple no nonsense note taking app and it works offline.
JS Torrent (Packaged) - The best torrent client out there for Chrome.
Pocket (Packaged) - It syncs articles seamlessly and now saves them offline. The extension is also a 1 click deal.
Vector Paint (Packaged) - It's a simple but powerful vector app. It supports layers, fills, gradients, and all sorts of shapes and text.
Pixlr Editor - It's the equivalent of Gimp, except on the web. It has lots of editing options and effects like blur, select by color, layers, hdr, etc. If you want something with even more options, Sumo Paint is good too.
Pokemon Stardust Nova - It's a simple little flash game in the early stages and it's fun to play but most importantly it's my pet project.
Writebox (Offline) - It's a no nonsense text file editor that can save in various formats and sync to both Dropbox and Drive.
