By their own description, Purevolume is “a website for the discovery and promotion of new music and emerging artists.” Purevolume is more than just a place for new artists to get noticed, they get heard as well. Purevolume provides track playback, free songs and albums for download. By sharing their music with the masses, artists can reach a wider audience and potentially increase their presence in playlists all over the world. Purevolume will no doubt aid you in the discovery of new artists, from local talent ‘The Lion Faced Boy’ out of Florida to Sunderland from Oregon.
So you love watching YouTube videos. Sometimes even just listening to them is plenty of entertainment. Convertmemp3 allows you to take the audio from YouTube videos and create an mp3 file. The audio is stripped away from the video and converted into an mp3 file for download.
Screenshots are what Bounceapp is all about. Sometimes a screenshot just doesn’t capture enough information when it comes to websites. If a website stretches vertically beyond that of the screen resolution, then a simple screenshot can’t capture it all. Bounceapp solves that problem by taking a screenshot of the entire webpage. Just type the URL into the Bounceapp box, click grab screenshot and wait for the screenshot to be generated. Simple and quick. The screenshots are mostly accurate. We noticed a small discrepancy with line wrapping, but the information was still all there.
Web designers are well familiar with CSS3 by now and are utilizing it whenever possible. For those not familiar with css (cascading style sheets), it’s the code behind websites that add aesthetic value. CSS3 adds a ton of new features and functions which can take some time to sort out, code-wise. Css3maker makes generating the code a bit easier by providing a choice of predefined functions, an image of what the code will translate to on the webpage, the code for implementing the styles as well as which browsers currently support the css3 functions.
More often than not, user manuals get tossed aside when we buy new gadgets and toys. They are only referenced if something is completely confusing or broken. When you do actually need them, it seems like they’re the only thing you can’t find. Well search around the house no longer. The-manuals.com is a manuals search engine with over five million free manuals stored for easy reference. Just type in the object that you need a manual for and you’ll be given the results.
