Nice. Thank you. :)

I’ve used filebrid in the past… super useful… (you misspelled the name fyi) but dropbox kind of took that out of play for me anymore.

To throw another free tool in the mix… http://betwext.com/remind is a free text message reminder service… Super useful! Used it for a while then started helping them out. LMK what you think

Wow!

Great list, especially liked the Make Thumbnail tool. Will really help with clients, that combined with picresize.com can help out those without the proper software tools.

Pretty awesome the variety of important stuff you can get from this portal!
