Site of the Week – Hobeze.com

This post is a little bit biased since we (www.2bscene.ie) designed and developed it. But none the less I think it’s a good looking site with good potential. Started by two young guys from Cork, www.hobeze.com is the newest social networking website on the Internet.

Currently still in beta mode (so it could be a little buggy) Hobeze (play on the word ‘hobbies’) allows anyone to register for free and meet and socialise with likeminded people based on what your favourite past time or hobby might be.

So what makes this site better than anything else out there? Well the fact that it’s hobby based, means you can meet new friends that are simply just into the same thing as you. Features are similar to the big boys in the social networking scene, with comments, photo galleries etc all available.

So don’t hang around – go in and have a look!

Cool site of the week – TopSecretRecipes.com

From a design point of view, it’s not very inspiring. However the content is great. Get recipes and video instructions on how you can make homemade versions of things like Mars Bars, Big Macs and even Coca-Cola. Some recipes are free, while others have a nominal fee.

Check out the site for yourself! www.topsecretrecipes.com

Cool Site of the Week – PicLens

My choice for website of the week this week is Piclens – www.piclens.com
Not only is it a great looking website, it also has an excellent web app free to download.

The application instantly transforms your browser (Safari or FireFox only) into a slideshow experience when viewing sites like Flickr, Google Images, Bebo, Facebook etc. It’s a great little tool to have in your web surfing tool box!

Coolest website(s) of the week

Spurred on by Michele Neylon’s new www.coolsites.ie – I’ve decided to do something that I’ve wanted to do for quite sometime. And that is exactly what Michele is doing, except not as frequently (there’s no way I could do one a day! Fair play to you man!).

So for now I’ll be trying to review at least one Cool Website a week. My cool websites will be based on design, innovation, marketing excellence or simply just a bloody damn good website.

I’ll also create a “worst websites of the week” section, which will be for utterly terrible websites!

So to get things started… here’s my first installment for the coolest site of the week…

www.puneetsakhuja.com
Just a nice site from Dubai web designer – Puneet Sakhuja

And the worst site of the week?

www.electricpicnic.ie
Well just back from the great weekend there, but the website is absolutely terrible. The thing that annoys me most is the ridiculous navigation and the poorly informative information.
