This app works offline so you can edit photos without having to access a website, which is good news, especially when you don’t have an internet connection. Although it is packed with a lot of features, it’s also very lighweight. A good alternative is Pixlr.
It’s true, the Chrome OS version of this app isn’t as powerful as the Windows version, but it can play almost all video and audio formats, including DVD ISOs. Even more, it is completely free, doesn’t have ads and there’s even a widget for audio control.
Although Google’s suite can be enough for most users, many of us are familiar with Microsoft Office. If you prefer to use MS Word, Excel, and PowerPoint, you should choose this suite. It has the same features as its desktop version, but this time it’s free.

If you don’t like the Chrome App Launcher, this app could be very useful to you. It gives you a drop-down menu that includes links to all Google services. The menu looks very good and can be customized, depending on which services you use the most.
