My (and probably your) digital life is all about Mail, Contacts, Calendar, Notes, Reminder, Cloud, Planner, and (Some) Social Media apart from work. To organize it further, I have an app/service for each category. That’s Gmail (for Mails), Google Contacts (for Contacts), Google Calendar (for Calendar), Evernote (for Notes), Google Tasks (for Reminders), Google Drive (for Cloud Storage), Google Reader (for news updates) and all those social media stuff like Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn etc. Now that I have an iPhone, I spent almost a month organizing apps. I’ve installed and removed several apps several times. Today, I hope that it’s all perfect and I got what I want from my phone. But it may not be the same tomorrow if better apps are introduced. For me my smartphone is not just a mobile it’s something that makes my life easier. This time I decided to go for an iPhone (Sorry, Nokia) as I wanted to increase my productivity and organize my digital life in better … [Read more...] about 25 Best Free iPhone Apps 2012 That Organize My Digital Life

I don’t know how many times have I changed my preferred task manger app. For many many years it was Google Tasks. Why? It’s very quick, simple, and free. Though Google hasn’t discontinued Google Tasks I would say it’s obsolete. It may be the preferred task manager of Matt Cutts but I’m pretty sure that Google Tasks will be among Google’s Spring cleaning list someday. Because they haven’t updated it for several years, there’s no mobile app, and they haven’t even updated its favicon (it’s ugly now). Recently I switched to the award winning to do list app Any.do. It’s a good alternative to Google Tasks but I had to switch back to Google Tasks as it lacked a web version and I experienced few syncing issues. Then I continued my quest for that perfect task manager app and finally landed on Todoist’s iTunes page. I select my mobile apps based on some criteria like – name, icon, design, and the usability. So even … [Read more...] about Why Todoist Is The Best Todo List App For iPhone, Android & Desktop
No, no, no. Microsoft is not going to launch a mobile device powered by iOS or Android. You bet! Over the past few months/years Microsoft has released a bunch of apps for the iOS platform (and Android too). And they’re not stopping there as they continue launching new apps. Microsoft’s commitment to the iOS platform is very much evident from their recent acquisitions. Last December they acquired one of the most popular email app for iOS — Acompli. And in less than two months they rebranded it as Outlook for iOS. Read: Over 25 Email Apps (Free & Premium) For Your iPhone And iPad It was just a beginning. Later they acquired my favorite productivity app for iOS — the Sunrise Calendar (Hey, it’s not just a calendar but much more than that.). And then a few weeks back they acquired Wunderlist — again one of the most popular to-do list app. It’s clearly visible that Microsoft want to become the best mobile productivity apps maker. I have recently … [Read more...] about Over 21 Microsoft Apps For Your iPhone & iPad (And Android Too)

You can use email capture apps like: However, these services require a paid membership (one time, monthly, or annual).

Google apps for business is one of the best service out there to get a custom domain Email address and earlier they used to offer free Google Apps account up to 10 users. I have already shared about how to use it earlier here and here. In fact, setting up your own domain Email address is one of those things which I always recommend to all the bloggers to add a professionalism to their blog. Unfortunately, Google killed their 7-year-old free version of Google apps and now you can’t sign up for a free version of Google apps. Google earlier lowered down the users allowed in free account to 10 from 50 and now they have completely taken it down as announced in a recent blog post. Google apps for businesses have been one of the most popular service among bloggers, internet marketers and small size business owners to create a domain specific Email address. The good news here is, though Google killed the free version but any existing free Google apps user don’t have to worry about … [Read more...] about Google Killed Free Google Apps for Businesses
