Today, I was prospecting my Twitter mine, when I happened upon this tweet from Larry Ferlazzo:

RT @ShellTerrell: RT @izadmajid: RT @ITJil: Finding the Right Web 2.0 Tool for Education

I followed the link to WebTools4U2Use.

At the bottom of the page is a section called, “Keeping Up!”  There are about a dozen websites listed that provide news and reviews of Web 2.0 websites.

The first one I clicked on was AppAppeal.  I received a very good first impression from this site.  It provides a thorough, yet compact, review of each Web 2.0 website, and includes useful information; such as, whether registration is required, whether the site is free and how it compares to similar sites.

Last week, I found a similar site, called Zippa, which also provides links to Web 2.0 websites.

I was excited by Zippa at first.  I posted a link to it on Facebook.  However, after using Zippa for a week, I am not impressed. 

The interface is tedious, requiring multiple clicks to access the reviewed website; the reviews are brief; and the server is torturously slow.

My only criticism of AppAppeal is that it does not appear to have a large repository of websites.
