It’s safe to say the Chrome Web Store is ready for the deployment of the Chrome Operating System – whether it be via netbook purchase or netbook lease. The Chrome Web Store saw torrid 85% user growth from Jan-11 to end of Feb-11. As April-11 winds to a close, user growth has slowed to about 4% from Mar-11. For the …
Good news for tablets? A new TOUCH_UI build was released last week for the Google Chrome OS that supports the ability to touch and drag for apps development. This currently is focused on making apps easy to arrange on pages, with a range of gestures included such as swiping and dragging to switch pages as well as the ability to …
We’ve heard a lot of reports about the launch of the Apple App Store and it’s percieved success but we haven’t heard as much about Google’s Web Store. Well, with the help of Chrome OS Apps we are able to bring you an in-depth look at how the Chrome Web Store has faired so far.
It has been over two months since the release of Google’s Chrome Web Store to the general public; ever since, almost 3,000 web applications have been published by hundreds of developers. It seems long overdue for us to publish a list of web apps that we think you will like. Below are 5 categories and in each we’ve listed what we believe are the two best apps. All descriptions of the apps were provided by the respective developers.
Ever reach into your coat pocket and find $20? Whenever that happens to me I feel like I just found a little treasure. It’s a cup of coffee, lunch and a car wash. But when I was a kid, it was a stack of new comic books.
So you’ve got this whole ‘cloud’ thing going for productivity, maybe even a little social networking, and if you’ve been really adventurous you’ve managed to get your feet wet with hulu.
“What about gaming?” is the cry I hear from my inner(and outer)-nerd. “All this is great, but I wanna pop some heads!”
Doesn’t fate have a funny way of coming back to bite you where it hurts? Well it seems like Jolicloud has suffered that fate, already. Just over a week after Google released the Chrome OS Beta and the Chrome Web Store, the French company has gone ahead and ported their operating system into the Web Store using an HTML5 powered Web Application.
So, it has been over a week since Google announced the Chrome Web Store. We’ve even written a guide on what we believe are the 10 best Web Applications thus far. Even so, a quick perusal of the Chrome OS forums reveals that not everyone is particularly knowledgeable as to what the Web Store is and how it works. We’ve had individuals who have never used the Chrome Browser and have recently received the CR-48 Chrome Notebook and have no clue what the difference between a Web App and Chrome extension is.
If you are familiar with TweetDeck on the Ipad, Android or any other platform you will love the web application version. It was designed to run fully in the browser using Chrome OS, the Chrome Browser or Google TV. So if you have a CR-48, this is a must see application.
We can well and truly say that year 2011 will be ‘the year of web applications’ (powered by Chrome and Chrome OS of course). Apple changed everything when they first introduced their IOS for the IPhone and their Ipods. More-so, with the entry of the Ipad it seems like ‘Apps’ now make the world go round; but you can have an app for anything, but you can’t run your app on anything. That’s the big problem!
A few days ago Google unveiled their new Web Store during their much anticipated Chrome Event. Already, there have been hundreds of thousands of App installs since the store was opened just two days ago. It seems like Google has really hit a niche in the market and the soon release of Chrome OS is likely to further boost the development of even more web application.
After a long struggle, Google has finally released the Chrome Web Store. It has taken months and a number of delays but it has finally happened. The store has been released to complement the outing of the Chrome OS beta. Even so Apps in the Web store won’t only work with Chrome OS but will also work with Google TV and the Chrome browser.
