[Reader Survey] Do You Like Your Apps In the Cloud Or On the Desktop?


We write about the cloud quite a bit here at 40Tech. We’ve covered online word processors, options for free cloud storage, how to solve some of the risks of cloud computing, and several cloud-based task managers and productivity tools. In other words, we love cloud computing. But . . . lately I’ve started to appreciate the speed and elegance of a few desktop apps, and have started looking for desktop versions of some apps.

Do you have a preference? Do you prefer desktop apps, with their elegance and speed, or do you like the convenience of cloud apps? Let us know in the poll. Most of us use both cloud and desktop apps, so even if you use both, vote for which of the two you prefer (or the third option, if they finish in a dead heat in your mind).
