One thing about making lots of contacts at events, conferences and exhibitions is that you inevitably end up with lots of business cards. The question is, what to do with them?

It can automatically import them into your iPhone, CRM or other app contacts so that you have their details at your fingertips at any time. FullContact Card Reader automatically scans business cards into your iPhone contacts, Salesforce leads and, over 250 other apps, such as Pipedrive, ActiveCampaign, and MailChimp.

WORK[etc], (full name WORK[etc] CRM + Projects + Help Desk), is a holistic approach to small business management which, as the elongated name suggests, manages to stuff a lot into a one package.
WORK[etc] integrates CRM with project management, billing, customer support, and more in an attempt to create an all-in-one business management platform.

Up until now, I have been using my iPhone’s standard calendar as a personal to-do list, since I hadn’t really found a to-do list application that I fell in love with. For tasks like picking up groceries and getting a hair-cut, this might be okay, but when it comes to planning projects for work, and other complex scenarios, the integrated calendar just won’t cut it.
For this reason, I’ve spent some time investigating the different to-do list apps available in the App Store. Twenty five are rounded up here, including some generic applications, and others suited for a specific purpose (such as planning a wedding). Hopefully you’ll find a selection of very useful pieces of software!

There’s a new breed of email apps trending these days. These apps are designed to help users get productive with their inboxes and ultimately reach inbox zero. They have several common denominators, including gestures, action-based functionality, scheduling, and integration with other productivity tools like tasks and calendars. They make for a good compliment to project management apps such as Clarizen, Wrike, or JIRA, making your work life that little bit more manageable.
A growing number of these email apps have been released to the public, signalling evident interest in this approach to email. I’ve managed to round up ten (10) email apps that fit into this trend, some of which you may or may not have heard of before. Let’s take a look at these email apps and see what they have to offer users in need of a more effective and flexible solution to email.
