Web Apps are hitting the internet by storm. There are so many around on the internet, running on many different frameworks. I have compiled a list of the top 10 web apps for web designers in 2009. They are ranked descending, so its saving the best until last.
Remember that this is WebDesignDev’s opinion about what apps are the top 10. If you think another app should be number one, then we would love to hear it in a comment.

#10 PX to EM
When first making a new CSS stylesheet, you may want to use this tool to set your master text size. Its a very handy tool where you input in your body font size, and then PX to EM converts the font sizes based on your body font size, and outputs the CSS stylesheet too! They also have a custom PX to EM and EM to PX calculator. Visit Site

The number one web app of 2009, is Dropbox. This tool is one of the most handy solutions ever. You simple drag and drop files into your Dropbox, and it stores them online! Heck when im out and about and I want to show someone an image, but its not on my phone, I simply login to the Dropbox web interface, and show them the image. I would really recommend using this service. Its great for showing clients design revisions / mockups. You simply save the file direct to your Dropbox. Visit Site
