Welcome to Webby Wednesdays – a brief compilation of some useful web services which we found useful during the course of this week.
RadBox – The Read it Later for Videos
If you are video addict and want an easy way to bookmark web videos for later viewing, try Radbox.me. The site lets you bookmark videos from any web page using a neat browser bookmarklet, much the same way you bookmark articles using Read it later.
Once you hit the bookmarklet, the video is saved to your Radbox account for later viewing. The site also lets you share the video with your friends on social networking sites, you can again delete videos from your Radbox account. It’s much like a place for aggregating videos from all over the web rather than using sites like YouTube where you are not given much options to gather videos from different websites.
CookThing: Learn How to Cook Anything
If you are new to the kitchen and your recent hobby is to learn how to cook a dish, Cookthing.com is the best site to start with. Although you can search for the recipe in Google, but CookThing is more user friendly as you can choose what you want to cook, pick the ingredients and the site will display the corresponding recipes.
If you are unable to find a particular recipe, you can post a question in the CookThing user’s community.
Urlist: Combine Multiple Shortened Links And Share With Anyone
Have a bunch of links and want to shorten all of them and merge them together? Check out Urlist, the service lets you enter any number of links and then allows you to create a shortened link of the whole combination.
This can be useful when you want to create a chain of subsequent pages and don’t want to note down multiple links to share them repeatedly. You can also use the service to create a guided tour of something, may be upload screenshots of a tutorial and then combine the steps so that your friend spends less time opening the links. No signups or registration is required to use the service.
On each Wednesday, we will come up with a brief roundup of new web tools which provide value and add something extra to your daily technology. Stay tuned!
