Gpanion is a sleek dashboard for Google Apps

If your first stop after opening up your web browser is to load up various Google Apps, Gpanion is a sleek dashboard interface for all your favorites.

Gpanion is a simple icon-based interface for easily loading your favorite Google Apps. The dashboard displays 14 applications out of 44 at a time. You can customize the layout so that your most used applications are shown prominently on the first page with lesser used items tucked away on the bottom row or the second page—saving your configuration does require you to use your Google signin.

If you'd prefer not to share any information with Gpanion you can still use the site minus the customization. The links just pass you through to the actual Google services. The default setting puts Gmail, Gcal, Greader, Picasa Web, YouTube, and other people Google-powered destinations at the forefront.
