ChromeOS – Productive Apps and Extensions

All these web applications contain some very cool features that make them useful even (in the rare event) when you don’t have internet connection. Let’s say, you are 30,000 feet up the air (and not on a Virgin Atlantic plane) or 250 feet under the ground and there is no signal. Here are some apps that will make the business users (very) happy:

  • Citrix – If your company uses Citrix to host applications, you can use Citrix Receiver to check your email, review documents, tune into project dashboards, and approve expenses from your Chromebook.
  • Offline Gmail/Doc/Cal – I’ve blog about gmail offline support when it came out (the end of August) and the rest of the ‘office’ is also bring the Chromebook users the ability to keep working on long flights instead of watching a nice movie.
  • Angry birds – We can’t close a list of business apps without this little game that no office is complete without it. No words are needed here.
  • gojee – if you hungry this app is for you! great photos of beautiful dishes.
  • NYT – yep they got offline capabilities so you can keep reading Tomas Friedman under the sea.
Here is a nice list of other great apps that will work offline on your chromebook  – Be strong!
