Station, manage all your webapps from the same place and with a nice interface
Exactly that problem is the one that wants to solve Station, that has self-proclaimed the app to make them all . The concept is similar to apps like Franz, which combine multiple messaging services in one place, the difference is that Station integrates more than 300 web applications of all types.
Station seeks to be a work station, hence its name. A unique place where you will find all your apps. Nothing to get lost among dozens of tabs that are becoming increasingly indecipherable and smaller as more pages open.
Smart dock, unified search and notification center
You can switch between pages and documents in one click. Each app is visually identifiable in a side dock with a nice design. You have a unified search engine to find information on a page that you have saved inside any of your apps.
You have a notification center from which you can control all the apps, and you can also activate the “focus mode” to stop the alerts in case you want to concentrate and not be interrupted.
You also have the option to “remove” an app from the main window and execute it next to another side. Just move the mouse pointer over the icon of the webapp and you will find the option.
Station is completely free, you just need to enter your email address to get the download. The first thing you must do to use it is to log in with your Google account, which is what the app uses to show you your first applications in a unified interface: Gmail, Drive and Calendar.
From there you can move on to add all the apps you want. There are more than 300 services and constantly more are added . You can search between the different Station categories, or you can type directly into the search engine.
Station also promises to make an intelligent management of your memory , so in theory it should consume fewer resources than opening all your webapps in the browser. It is not always the case, and it varies depending on the webapp you use, each one consumes resources in a different way, like in the browser.
