I'm referring to this question where one of the solution is a non web-based app. Do we want that or should we only answer with web-based solutions even if there are better apps out there?
Answering with non web-based solutions is OK because the point is to help the user and there might not be good web-based apps.
on desktop or online
Often apps are hybrid anyway, for examples most photo sharing websites have an optional application (or active x control) to help with uploading and tagging lots of photos.
I think comment would be better, because desktop apps usually not running on all platforms and if somebody is looking for an answer in webapps, it should be a webapp.
