Creating Web-Apps (Part 4)

This is the final article in a four-part series describing how to create web-apps in elementary OS. So far, we have looked into Fogger, Google Chrome, and Midori web-apps. We're ending the series by looking again at Google Chrome and taking full advantage of the Chrome Web Store.


If you're not a fan of Geary, or need more features like search, check out Gmail Offline. It's a nice, clean interface with vertical panes and offline access.

Google Keep

Google Keep is one of my favorite Google apps. It allows you to quickly save, access and organize information. You can easily create a text note, add a photo, or type up a quick list. It's minimalist but gets the job done.
If you are looking for an elementary-inspired icon, TraumaD91 designed a great one.

Distraction-Free Writing

Writebox is a distraction-free writing space, which syncs with Drive and Dropbox. When you go full-screen (F11), you are left with pure white and your text. Simplicity.
