Wakcopa is yet another Web 2.0 tool; one among gazillions. But, this one is worth a look.

Wakcopa is a mashup/social network that combines a time management tool to monitor what apps you are using the most on your PC (And I do mean PC, it's for Windows only) and a way to see what other apps subscribers are using and recommending. It's a way to find new apps and add-ons through word of mouth.

I don't really care about the social network part of the site.

Must everything be a social network now?

However, I do like the time tracker that tells me how much time I'm spending using each app on my computer. Let's face it; much of our day is spent tippy-tapping on a keyboard or thumbing away on a little bitty keypad. This is a way to get a reality check on just how much time you're spending on Facebook, dinking with fonts and backgrounds on a PowerPoint file, etc.

There's something about Wakcopa that I like even better. I don't know about you; but my computer is always running much slower than it seems like it should. The culprit(s) slowing things down can usually be found in that little strip of icons in the bottom right hand corner of your screen.

Wakcopa also tracks what apps are running in the background and for how long. It's a great way to figure out what needs to be turned off and what shouldn't be there in the first place.
