A week away at a dude ranch and then a week playing catch-up have wreaked havoc on my blogging schedule. So this is my end-of-week effort to get something useful in front of you, along with a commitment to do better next week!

I have decided that I could easily become addicted to techie toys and tools. To play with, mind you, not to build or create!

  • Evernote (my favorite app of all)
  • Jott Assistant (probably my second favorite app)
  • Dropbox for managing files and data across several computers, and now your phone as well
  • Google Voice
  • Mint for managing personal finance and budgets
  • WeatherBug
  • NPR News
  • Hootsuite for all your social media updates
  • Google Maps (mine becomes an amazingly accurate talking GPS in my Android phone)
  • Pandora (keep my kid occupied and quiet in the car!)
  • Shazam - what an ingenious idea!

Looking forward to playing with Bump and Doodle Jump!
