NoteByMail is a text note and voice memo app for iOS. I created this app to streamline a common task I found myself doing on my iPhone. Since I tend to manage important notes and reminders by sending myself mail so I could track them from my inbox, I found myself frequently composing a new email and sending it to myself. This took too many steps if I was in a hurry. With NoteByMail, all I need to do is type a note or record a voice memo and tap send. From there, it will be sent by mail and appear in my inbox.

 

picgo.com is a customizable and elegant photo album hosting service that uses photos stored in Dropbox. It enables users to take their Dropbox photos and instantly create simple photo albums and share them online. But unlike the Dropbox photo album, picgo albums are customizable through captions, controlling the order that photos appear in an album and more. Is is written in Python using Django and hosted on Google App Engine.
