New tools for web design and development: April 2012

Does the internet have seasons? If so, are they regular, regional? How many are there? This month seems to have brought out a crop of apps pointed towards new growth. And in some cases financial as well as technical and creative.

Perhaps the online economy is demonstrating some kind of resistance to the global credit-related malaise. If it is then this must be due in part to the fact that the virtual world lacks some of the barriers to entry that plague the physical economy.

If you have a good idea and the ability to make it real, you have an audience of millions waiting to pay you for your trouble. Could be a game you've come up with, cocoon.js will get it into the app store. And once there, will help you sell it.

If you already have plenty of traffic, Mixpanel can help you understand its Flow. And if you're just thinking, Paper provides the perfect space to capture the ideas that might make your fortune. Let's hope the Mayan's were wrong, 2012 is starting to feel like it has potential.
