‘Web 2.0’

Remember the milk
A simple but powerful web application for managing task list. It is only runned by 2 people.

Campaign Monitor
Email campaign application. Although the product might not sound very innovative, this company has done it with perfection. They tackled the market targeting to the web designers first and the usability and design of the application is just excellent. One of my favorite Australian web applications.

Small team focused on transforming rss to email newsletter.

Zapr – Really Simple Sharing
File sharing software with social aspects… I haven’t had a need to try it yet 😛

Australian blog search…


Legion Interactive
They are the main player in the sms voting product, a leader in the mobile application industry.

Quite a young company focusing on flashlite development.

A platform for adding widgets on the mobile phone. You can find out more from their website.
