Need a simple batch image processor? The Resize Sense app is on sale this weekend for only $9.99. It's an excellent alternative to more expensive image editing programs. Because it is a highly focused app, you can get your images edited quickly and efficiently. Perfect for bloggers! If I didn't already have Photoshop and all of my actions created, I'd definitely be downloading this app.

Nice article Tara! There were many good points made. I particularly like "If visitors have to download an app to accurately view a website from their phones, more than likely they will just leave the site unless they are loyal followers.". That's me. If a site wants me to download an app, they better be a huge transactional one like amazon or ebay.
