AlternativeTo has become one of my daily reads to satisfy my obsession for software and apps. What is really cool about this site is that the main focus is to give you alternatives to software (and web based apps) that you already may know and want to replace, for various operating system and custom platforms (such as Windows, Mac, Linux, iPhone, iPad, Android, Windows Phone, Firefox, Chrome, and a whole lot more..).
Many of the alternatives found at AlternativeTo is based on user recommendations. To get you started with AlternativeTo, you will find below a listing of their most recent postings.
Algolia provides a developer-friendly RESTful API for website and app instant search. Most web services and mobile apps, such as Spotify, Salesforce or Amazon need to provide a fast and meaningful access to database objects via a simple search box. People want to find songs, invoices, products in just a few keystrokes. Algolia’s search API returns full results in less than 10ms in average, allowing as-you-type result display, “à la Google”, up to 200 times faster than other search technologies. Our focus is on small database objects (such as contacts or products), so we designed new ranking rules built for this kind of data. We use new criteria to rank results, such as the popularity for a song, or, for a product, how many times it was put in a shopping cart. This new engine design, optimized for databases, enables the apps and services who use our API to provide their users with meaningful and relevant results at the first keystroke.

The web is the leading resource for home cooks and Whisk’s vision is to make the journey from online recipe inspiration to real-life shopping much easier. Whisk displays an “Add to Shopping List” button alongside thousands of popular recipes, allowing people to quickly create a shopping list from any recipe.

Since launching the company in 2013, Whisk has secured partnerships with leading recipe publishers, including Allrecipes, Food Network and Woman & Home. Additionally, the company has successful online grocery cart integration with UK grocery stores Tesco, Ocado, Waitrose and Asda. Whisk shopping list features: — Allows users to add recipe ingredients into their shopping list with one click — Users can add non-recipe items to their list and use Whisk Cards to store lists for repeat use — Sync lists to Whisk’s mobile Apple and Google Play apps and tick off items as you shop — Lists can also be printed, emailed or shared with friends and family — Recipe bookmarking: Whisk Collections allows users to keep their favorite recipes — Seamless online grocery cart integration (currently available in the UK)
