Email.

I've been on it since 1996 and it's rarely failed me and everyone uses it!

Email is incredible, and one of the very few things that for the most part just works no matter which app/server/service you use. Predates the web, and is most likely to outlast it if anything does. That's changing a bit as such a large majority of email runs through Gmail/G Suite and Exchange/Office 365, but still.

Not only email, but also Usenet, which I still use. It's gotten a bit more centralized for binaries, but for text articles (rec.gambling.poker, etc), it's still great.

Unfortunately, reddit is a much bigger forum-based community, so it does bug me that people go to r/usenet to talk to Usenet instead of Usenet itself, but there are a few companies working on bringing Usenet back as a decentralized discussion system.

Linkstack.me

Been a blessing especially when you want more market more than one offer or course. Been using this to sell a few different courses I offer by just clicking on the link on Instagram. Best of all its easy to edit and customize

I haven’t used it yet, but Mastodon seems to be one of the first decentralized apps to get close to mainstream use. Then, somehow I doubt this will ever see the light of day, but Twitter has said they’re funding work on a Blue Sky decentralized version of (or alternative to?) Twitter, which would be wild if it actually worked out.

Hi guys! I always give a look at dappradar.com because I work in the sector, with my own dApp. I am curious to hear your idea: my 2cents are that the UX frictions are still too many for wider adoption. Also, there is a topic still do be addressed: do people really care, today, if a service is decentralized / blockchain-based and therefore accountable? For now therefore I can't say to have any specific feedback about the "best dApp I have ever used". Of course we are working on it. Do you have any other ideas? I would love to receive some feedback and suggestions with a useful dApp to be used today in a smoothless way :)

I'd say BitTorrent is one of the best. Although we're guilty of centralising it a bit :-)
