It's one thing to plan and schedule my day, but my day doesn't always go as planned. By analyzing how I used my time in the past, however, I can vastly improve how I use it in the future. 



App Gems from MacWorld helps you find essential apps

I like MacWorld's reviews and articles. And their new app, called App Gems, looks to be really useful. Each weekday this app highlights and App Gem of the day — an app that's highly recommended by their staff of experts. Plus, the app also includes Essential Collections of great apps, which are handpicked by the editors and writers at MacWorld. You can also see lists of top-rated apps by category. And finally, App Gems includes news stories, blog posts, and tips posted on Macworld.com. The app is $1.99.



Digitizing receipts with JotNot

Are you looking for a way to quickly and easily digitize your receipts for electronic storage?

JotNot for iPhone can help. Simply take a photo of the receipt, process the image with JotNot and then save it as a PDF, JPG, or PNG. It works with receipts, documents, photos, and white boards. You can then save your image, email your image or send it to Evernote.

Evernote allows you to share these digitized images with others or store them in your Evernote notebook. Evernote also makes it easy to sort notes or search for a specific note. 



Getting Things Done on the iPhone

         When Steve Jobs introduced the iPhone at MacWorld on January 9, 2007 he called it “an iPod, a phone, an internet mobile communicator” – three devices in one. The subsequent evolution of the iPhone into a computing platform with the launch of the app store a year and a half later meant the functions an iPhone could perform were limited only by developer’s imagination. There are many excellent apps that enable you to track the news, sports, the weather, or find restaurants, movies, your friends (and even public bathrooms), play games or listen to music. And there are many not so excellent apps; I am talking about you, iFart.



Taken with Take A Note

image

When I first looked at Take A Note ($4.99) I was interested in it as an educa tion tool since it has multiple options for taking notes; typing, using the voice recorder, snapping a photo or even your own doodles and drawings as such is an invaluable tool for any student.  I found the layout to be well thought-out, and logical and I appreciated that visually it resembles a paper notebook, for me the visual queue with the functions was practical.



How to stay on task with OmniFocus

Juggling school, work, volunteer activities and personal time is not easy. That’s why I’m always on the lookout for a better way to prioritize and manage my time. I recently received a review copy of the OmniFocus iPhone app (Omni Group (http://www.omnigroup.com) along with the OmniFocus desktop application for Macintosh. After working through the tutorials and using the OmniFocus system for the last three month, I’m delighted to say I’ve found the perfect solution for me!



True Push GMail Arrives on iPhone

image

Push GMail notifications have arrived for the iPhone. While not a true Apple application like we might expect by now, a new App Store application named GPush fills the bill for GMail addicts.

For a mere $.99, you can install GPush and receive notifications when new mail arrives to your GMail account. Of course, if Apple does implement true push notifications in the near future, this app will be short lived. However, for those of you who have been waiting and really, really need to know when email arrives as it arrives, GPush is a simple and affordable solution.

PandoraBox - free app for finding new apps and those reduced in price

image

When I posted about the website 1448Apps.com, fellow blogger Elizabeth Christian commented and pointed me to PandoraBox, a free app that lets you do two things: 1) see all the new apps that have just been added — you don't need to go hunting through all 20 categoriesand 2) see all those apps that have just been reduced in price or made free. This is a great way to track those specials that vendors offer when they reduce the price of their app for one day.
