Sometimes, we all get frustrated with lost files, forgotten passwords, and poor investments. The newest decentralized technology is leaving those days behind for good. Here are this week’s latest dapps will help you work smarter.
How many documents, files, and images are you sharing with your team every day? Yes, we are living in the “sharing” world that’s why we made “Dropbox” a verb — “I will dropbox you in a second.” But sharing files on the internet ain’t safe, you know that. Now we have a new way of sharing stuff without losing ownership — “Welcome to the age of apps that can’t be evil”. Envelop runs on Blockstack, and you can decide where your files are stored. Simply log in with your Blockstack ID, drag and drop the file that you want to upload, get a download link and share it. Easy, right? Also, your default storage is infinite! (Do we need to remember you that how much you pay for Dropbox every month?) One single file has a size limit of 25MB — still much larger than a regular email attachment. And not to mention, you set up your own storage.

BlockSurvey came out as an idea during a hackathon back in June. By leveraging Blockstack, BlockSurvey allows users to easily create polls and surveys and guarantees complete confidentiality. Users can be assured their answers won’t be revealed to creators. All relevant insights about the survey are confined strictly to the creators. This decentralized survey and poll creator guarantees the privacy of all users.

Powered by Blockstack, this new dapp allows you not just simplified the way that online photo editor does, also you will be able to save your encrypted data to your hard drive or your own EZResize storage, and you will never ever worry about the photo editing and safety ever again!
Some of you have been living on 1Password for a very long time. 1P isn’t foolproof -- sometimes you just can’t remember the master key. We know it’s pain and honestly, we were hoping to use a password tool on the blockchain for a while. BlockPass is an EOS-based dapp that allows you to store your data directly on the EOS blockchain. BlockPass allows you to use your own private key so your data will never be lost.
