Introducing Flowtorch, a Web App Built from Marketplace Items!

Introducing Flowtorch.co.uk! It’s 100% free!

Quite recently, I’ve stepped up my online business a little, increasing my sales on here, increasing my eBay sales, and really increasing my client work – not to mention my day job too. The problem I became faced with was having multiple streams of finance and losing track of what cash came from where.

I didn’t want to sign up to paid financial management services, and I didn’t want to sign up to services like Mint, who’d have the banks sending me offers and such like.

I also wanted something simple, without all these options to manage investments and crap like that.

So I thought I’d see how well I could do it myself, using items from the Marketplaces to help me out. So what can you do with Flowtorch?

Five Years of Envato  

by posted in Milestones
Aug 30
2011

It’s kinda crazy to think, but our little internet startup, Envato, has been on the air now for five years. We started back in 2006 as four very enthusiastic and totally green entrepreneurs with a shoestring budget and a love of the web. Fast forward five years and while we’re hopefully a little less green, we’re still incredibly passionate about Education, Marketplaces and the web! It’s been an amazing time and we’d like to share a look inside our Melbourne HQ offices, some stats about Envato and a big thank you to the community.

Author Interview: DanaosC

Going to school in Greece, being “a disgusting and funny guy”, having speakers you really like, and watching anime. This week we meet Danaos Christopoulos (DanaosC) from VideoHive.

Tell us a bit about yourself. Where are you from, what do you do for a living?

Hello, my name is Danaos Christopoulos, and I am a 16-year-old Motion Graphic Design student living in Rhodes, Greece, and I am currently self-learning.

I do accept freelance jobs when I have the chance, but the main source of income is from the Envato marketplaces. As a high school student, I am not able to work in some company or anything, so Envato is my best and only choice.

I haven’t really gone abroad or anything, but I want to visit Japan someday.

This is where CodeCanyon author Christophe Debruel (Krike) gets creative and productive. It’s a Mac-centric workspace with lots of accessories and a collection of colorful balls with mixed emotions.

Christophe’s 27″ iMac has a second monitor, a very full dock, and an Apple wallpaper that makes me think of granny smiths. He has a keyboard dock for his iPad, and a speaker dock for his iPhone.

The AppStorm team have been hard at work again. Here is a huge bunch of great free apps and web services they covered.

Kickoff: A Native Collaboration App for Small GroupsKickoff: A Native Collaboration App for Small Groups

Kickoff certainly had a bumpy launch a few weeks ago. The app got so many downloads that their server broke within a few hours of launching, and, as a result, many users where seeing problems with the app, such as crashing or no syncing between accounts. Then they got some unfortunate news that no developer would ever want to hear: Apple rejected the app when they tried to update it. The reason? It was a subscription service and was therefore not allowed in the App Store, despite being approved twice before.

This was surely an unfortunate time for Kickoff. Still, those guys wouldn’t take no for an answer. They have taken it all on the chin, as seen on their blog, and they now offer it as a direct download from their site.

So, has the team learned from their mistakes? Have they made the app more solid and robust to handle all of their traffic? Most importantly, should you invest your well earned money into their service? Read on after the break to find out.
