New Year Resolutions 2012: There’s an App for That!
We all have resolutions for 2012, whether they are to lose weight, get organized, or even just be more productive on a day-to-day basis. Luckily for us, there are FREE apps that can help us with our resolutions in 2012! Here are some of the apps Rasmus will be using:
There’s an app for: Organization
Between your phone, computer, iPad, and three email addresses, it can often be difficult to keep track of everything that you have to do in one place. But now, there is Wunderlist. Wunderlist is great because you can create to do lists, add notes to tasks, organize your tasks by lists and by date, and email your lists or share them with the cloud. And you can get this app on all of your devices.
There’s an app for: Networking
Cardmunch By LinkedIn (Free)In the “digital age” it can be hard to keep track of those tiny, elusive business cards you get while networking, and often to remember who or where you got it from in the first place. Cardmunch is an app from LinkedIn that allows you to simply take a picture of someone’s business card, and immediately have that information converted to a contact AND show you their LinkedIn profile and connections.
There’s and app for: Brushing up on your Spanish
If you don’t use it, you lose it right? Well you can brush up on the language of your choice (this app has everything from Spanish to Afrikaans to Macedonian) with iTranslate. Just paste in text, or use the voice recognition feature (which is $1.99 for 75 “transactions”) to speak the phrase you want to translate. The app will give you the written phrase, and will say the phrase out loud for you (in some languages).
There’s an app for: Getting in Shape
Nike Training Club (Free)
This app is like having a personal trainer right on your phone! It teaches you how to do exercises (with pictures and videos!) and gives you a workout tailored to your specific goal like getting leaned, toned, strong, or focused.
