Okay, now on to the tools! Not that many articles this week. I’ve been reading more political stuff than startup stuff lately, and also finally finished Zero to One.

Tool of the week
Digital Ocean - I’ve hosted Startups at different places, including AWS (too expensive!) but now I’m using Digital Ocean to host userinput.io and it’s very affordable, well designed, and has nice support. I’m not that savvy with setting up server stuff, but I was able to figure out everything I needed to do with their knowledge base. Individual virtual servers start at just $5 each. Oh and if you want to try it, you can use this link for $10 off your account.
Some tools from this week
Formidable - I was using Gravity Forms for Wordpress contact forms, but I wasn’t super happy with it so I did some digging and started using Formidable, which is a lot cheaper and has a better feature set!
MyCloudCure - Remote IT solutions and also affordable website design, if you’re looking to outsource that sort of thing. 
Kickstagram - Managed Instagram growth. Set a target demographic, and they’ll try to get followers of that kind for you.
Attach.io - If you attach or share a lot of content and want stats on who reads it and when, check out Attach.io
X-Icon Editor - Really well designed and free favicon editor. 
.htaccess Check - I was losing my damn mind trying to find the error in 80 lines of 301 Redirects that I needed to add to a Wordpress site, and I was getting real tired of breaking then fixing the site over and over trying to figure it out. But this site told me the error in about two seconds, and my day got a lot better. Check it out if you have to fool with htaccess files.

Tools from our audience
Ramotion - If you ever needed a ton of iPhone mockups in order to make your app look gorgeous, this is your place. Device mockups for startup marketing materials.
Lattice - Lattice is a goal setting and management tool to help companies stay focused and aligned, bringing all your team’s goals into one place so everyone can stay up to date on how they’re connected and how they’re coming along. Lattice helps separate signal from noise and keeps everyone on the same page about what’s most important. Customers range from small teams to fast growing organizations of hundreds.
Vyper - A viral contest platform that actually looks great and has a ton of good features, including cheating detection, which you know is important if you’ve ever run a contest like this before.
