One for Mac

If you’re a GT regular, you might know that I like to read up on technology. Especially new technology. The hottest new apps, a faster tool to get something done, problem-solving workflows, and more.

Top 8 Third Party Apps for Facebook Messenger

Facebook Messenger Platform

For most of us, Facebook Messenger is not the go-to messaging app. It’s either WhatsApp or WeChat or iMessage. But Messenger still has a place on our phone. We still need to use it to communicate with people that we only know through Facebook. Granted, that might not be your most immediate friend circle. But some […]

GT Explains: Facebook Messenger Platform and Third Party Apps

Facebook Messenger Platform

For many of us, Facebook is the other messaging app. If you’re from India, you majorly use WhatsApp. For Japan, it’s Line, for China it’s WeChat, for well-off Americans it’s iMessage and for the rest of them, it’s somehow still SMS. But even as the secondary messaging app for a lot of us, Facebook Messenger still has […]

Google+ Photos is the one-stop destination for me when it comes to saving and sharing photos online. There are many small underlying reasons I choose Google+ over any other service. But the ones worth mentioning are the unlimited space for 2048p uploads, the Auto-awesome and Stories. Stories is a great way to share photos online; Google […]

GT Explains: Should You Be Using Google Data Saver on Desktop?

Google Chrome Data Saving

For a long time, Chrome on iOS and Android has had a data saver feature. When enabled, all the pages that you download on your web browser first go through Google’s own servers and are then compressed and delivered to you. This process is really fast. And I’ve actually seen significant data saving (20-40%) when using […]

TakeOff

If you’re a social media manager, there are tools like Buffer and Hootsuite to make your life easier. You can schedule a week’s worth of posts in advance and they’ll go out to Facebook, Twitter, Google+, and even LinkedIn without any issue. One name that’s always absent from this list is Instagram.

Quip vs Google Docs: Which is the Better Tool for Writing?

Quip vs Google Docs

Google Docs is currently the king of web based collaborative writing. It’s so popular that Microsoft had to come out with its own web based product (it’s essentially a lightweight version of the Office Word you’re used to). But outside of MS, no one is really competing with Google Docs. Editorially tried and failed. Draft seems to have […]

How to Dock Websites in Hangouts-like Panels in Chrome

Panel Tabs

Multi-tasking goes beyond just docking two app windows side-by-side and calling it a day. When you want to do things like watching a YouTube video while browsing but save screen space, you need to get creative and use something like floating windows. Today we’ll talk about an extension that takes this floating window/picture-in-picture behavior to […]

How to Add a Spotlight-like Keyboard Launcher to Chrome

Tab Search Header 1

If you thought my extension overload was a bit too much, you should look at how many Chrome tabs and windows I have open. But I’m sure I’m no anomaly here. Yes, Chrome is a RAM guzzler, but at this point, we’re at its mercy. Because a lot of what we do is on the […]

How to Bulk Download Images in Chrome

Images are all over the internet and that’s great. Can you imagine using the internet in the mid 90’s where it was mainly just text? We use images in different ways now. At how-to blogs like Guiding Tech, we use them to guide you through a technical process. It’s much better to look at annotated […]

Toggl Review: The Simplest Free Personal Time Tracking App

Toggl Review

There are many time tracking apps out there. Most of them focus on features like billing hours to clients, creating invoices and such. Services like Harvest are really good at that.

How I Tackled My Chrome Extension Clutter Without Losing My Mind

Extension overload

Currently, I have 20 extensions in Chrome, and this is after my recent clean-up. Just to be clear, that’s a lot. Or at least, I think so. This issue is only heightened by my line of work. At Guiding Tech I write about awesome productivity apps including Chrome extensions. Which means I test and use a lot of […]

3 Apps to Share Text from Web as Images on Twitter

Textshot Twitter test on photos

I read a lot, my job depends on it. And the hourly dose of dopamine doesn’t kick in till I’ve shared what I read on Twitter. But sometimes, just sharing the link to an article isn’t enough. Not many people on my timeline are going to click everything and read through. Which is why it […]
