Friday Five: 5 Awesome & Useful .ME Websites
Although .ME is technically the country code domain extension for Montenegro, it has branded itself for multiple uses beyond Montenegro's borders. When Montenegro was first issued its .ME domain, they decided not to limit its use because of the potential for a domain extension that can also stand for "me." As a result, .ME has become a favorite domain for personal websites, blogs, and businesses. It has especially become popular in the startup world as founders are looking for the right domain to differentiate their website. Here are a few cool businesses that have established themselves on a .ME domain. Enjoy!
1. 1Up.meSports fans unite! 1Up.me's goal is to make live sports even more fun with "the world's first live play social sports games." They feature games for basketball, hockey, football, and baseball that allow you to earn points on your gameboard as live events happen during the game you're watching. All of its games are available for free on any device.
3. Unroll.meAre you tired of receiving a constant stream of newsletters in your inbox from everyone under the sun? Unroll.me has you covered; it allows you to simplify your inbox by rolling all of your subscription emails into a single daily digest email. For those newsletters you don't even want to include your new daily digest email, Unroll.me provides an easy on click unsubscribe to help you manage the unwanted junk clogging your inbox.
4. Blip.meFingers tired from all that texting? Turn your phone into a walkie talkie with Blip.me's app! The free app allows you to send quick voice messages to friends even if they don't have the app themselves. There is even a group chat option and you can use it to text for free.
5. FrontBack.meFrontBack.me is a photo sharing app that allows you to take a picture with both the front and the back camera on your phone and combine them. This gives you a new perspective for your photos and, although I'll admit I wasn't convinced at first, it actually makes for some really interesting photos. One example I saw once I downloaded the app was a picture of someone looking at something on one side and the Eiffel Tower on the other. You can also use it to make goofie selfies (see below).
