NeoCounter-cool tool but not free

If you’ve actually visited my site lately you would have noticed a trail version of NeoCounter working. I saw it on another blog and thought it was cool (sorry can’t remember were) so I decided to give it a try. Pretty cool little application. You roll over the countries and it shows you a map of that country. Pretty cool unless you’re from New Zealand where it shows Australia. I have enough Kiwi friends to know that’s a no, no. :)

There NeoEarth looks pretty cool as well. But when clustrmap is free do I really need it for $12/year? Sure they have a free version but as far as I can tell it doesn’t do any more then clustrmap.

Maybe it’s just me, but there are so many cool FREE blogging tools out there I can’t bring myself to pay for one unless it’s a must have…which I haven’t found yet. The only thing I’m paying for on this blog is server space.

My 14 day trail of the premium Neocounter runs out on the 20th so we’ll see what it looks like then.

  1. Hi Jeff
    Interesting tool…however the image map for Bangladesh is actually India (a little odd?)

    Dhaka, Bangladesh

  2. I think they are highlighting the country in yellow, but not always centering it. New Zealand is highlighted, but Australia is highlighted.

  3. Well they are not the only geographical positioning tool to be a little off wack. I put a Geovisitor button on my site. This is really cool as it flags on the world map your recent visitors & you can download a Google Earth kml file that takes you right there. It tells me i live on an island in the Malborough sounds which would be really cool if i did… but a couple hundred miles north would be more accurate.

  4. yeah, I found the neo counter widget cool too, but that it isn’t free. my widget is expiring tomorrow and i shall see what it will look like. :)
