iPhone, Android, iPad, or Nexus – What Apps Work for You?
I requested my subscribers to inform me what they’ve on their smartphones and tablets. Listed below are a few of the responses:
Andrew de Guttadauro, professional in enterprise improvement (IP, M&A within the biotech world), mentioned, “Listed below are those that I at the moment favor:
– Communication: Skype (nice for saving cash when abroad and a wifi connection is in hand)
– Group: Evernote & Pocket (I am an enormous believer in cloud-based software program and these two apps work nice in tandem to permit one to clip, tag, set up, and retailer absolutely anything that comes throughout a pc, good cellphone, pill, or different related gadget)
– RSS & Information Streamers: Reeder, Flipboard, Zite, and Feedly (admittedly, that is overkill, however I am a information and media junkie and these apps all do a beautiful job of mixing my RSS feeds, and different information sources of curiosity, into organized information channels/feeds which are extra pleasing than the underlying RSS engine – Google Reader, in my case)
– Activity Administration: I favor Wunderlist as a result of, like my different apps, it is platform-agnostic and cloud-based, so I can entry my “to do’s” at any time when and nonetheless I like or want (Keep in mind the Milk is an effective various)
– Information and Data Storage: Dropbox is nice, but it surely’s essential folks understand that it Dropbox is not particularly safe as the corporate desires to present customers the selection of safety/encryption software program so it is essential to make use of 2-step authentication plus “True Crypt” if utilizing Drop Field to retailer something even remotely delicate
— E-mail: I take advantage of the native Apple app for Outlook however favor Google’s Gmail app to entry the latter service (regardless of it being from Google, this app may use further enhancements). I additionally advocate utilizing Xobni if potential, to assist sift by way of Outlook extra effectively.
– Information and Sports activities: ESPN, Huffington Publish, The Atlantic
– Journey: Kayak
– Internet: Chrome’s my favored browser on all units
– Buying: Amazon (by way of app on iPhone or by way of browser and web site on iPad), Goal app
– Eating: Open desk, Yelp (relevant within the procuring class as properly)
– Social Media: LinkedIn
– Bookmarks: X-Marks
– Media: Amazon streaming, Netflix streaming, Hulu Plus, HBO GO
That just about covers the apps. I might advocate to everybody that 2-step authentication ought to be used on any web site the place it may be enabled and that separate signups be used on any web site the place potential (by no means use Google, Fb, or LinkedIn username/passwords to entry different websites as you are needlessly exposing your self to sequential hacking). Lastly, I take advantage of a password administration software however should not have the app loaded on both good cellphone or pill because it makes me too antsy viz. potential lack of the gadget. I additionally do not have financial institution or insurance coverage apps loaded on my units for a similar cause and would advocate utilizing such apps provided that you do not hold completely signed in to both (I might reasonably entry such data by way of the added problem of the online browser as an alternative).
I hope this proves useful and stay up for listening to what others are utilizing.”
These can be found in each Apple and Android. Reeder, True Crypt, Xnobi and X-Marks are Apple-specific.
I not too long ago needed to reformat my pill (I used to be filling it up only a bit too full) and needed to reduce on my apps.
So as of what’s on my display:
Navigation (Google maps)
Information & Climate (native Android)
Calendar (native Android)
Contacts (native Android)
Gmail and my different emails
Google Reader (however I’ll try Andrew’s options!)
Out of Milk (however just for grocery procuring)
an alarm clock, a stopwatch, a calculator, a music participant
Kindle and Play Books
and my digicam and gallery
