Like most people, I have a lot of apps on my iPhone and iPad. I don’t use more than a handful and I move those to the first couple of “pages” for easy access.
I have rounded up twelve (more if you count iOS and Android) apps that I consider essentials for work. There is an app that I consider the best for unit conversion and the absolute best voice recording app I use for recording meetings so I don’t miss anything and an app for those who like to take notes the old fashioned way. In all there are twelve different types of apps that are guaranteed to make your life easier at work. What more could you ask for?
I have also included a hearing test app for those of us that have been in the A/V industry and wondering if standing too close to the speakers has really had an effect on our hearing. It’s no joke!
Be honest—have you ever taken a sneak peek on your mobile device during a meeting to get an update on “the game”? I have. I am not a sports fan, I am a Boston sports fan. We’ve had some great victories in recent years but I have quickly updated my mobile devices with NFL apps. The baseball season is coming to a close and for us Red Sox fans that can’t be soon enough. At the end of the slide show, you’ll find the apps that I can’t live without during any sports season. I have included links for iOS and Android. It is sure to please all because it works on just about every mobile device: iPhone, iPod, iPad, Android, Kindle Fire, Windows phone 7 and BlackBerry. If you get caught “looking” during a meeting it just because everyone else wants to know the score too. Share!
