Ban.jo: This app is the “In­ter­net live feed.” I use Banjo to browse mu­sic, sports, and the lat­est news, as well as to read real-time posts from peo­ple who are at events.

FlightTrack 5: Since I travel quite of­ten, it’s crit­i­cal for me to keep track of all flight, gate, and ter­mi­nal in­for­ma­tion. This app stores all of this info, re­gard­less of what air­line I am fly­ing, and alerts me with any changes to my flight.

Swing­mail: This app man­ages all of my emails, pri­or­i­tiz­ing them based on how fre­quently I email cer­tain con­tacts.

Mar­ketWatch: I use this app to track the mar­kets in real-time with en­hanced charts, global mar­ket news, and no­ti­fi­ca­tions of tech­nol­ogy stocks and trends.

SlideShark: I store my Pow­er­Point pre­sen­ta­tions in SlideShark. I then launch the app to prac­tice and re­view them prior to the pre­sen­ta­tion.

Dragon Dic­ta­tion: I usu­ally get ideas that I want to re­mem­ber when I’m trav­el­ing. Rather than writ­ing them down, I speak them into this app and it tran­scribes the notes.

TechCrunch: I use this app to keep track of the lat­est tech­nol­ogy trends in Sil­i­con Val­ley. It also alerts me of great star­tups launch­ing in the ed­u­ca­tional tech space.

Lear­nist: This app al­lows you to fol­low oth­ers based on their ar­eas of in­ter­est. I can cre­ate pin­boards of ma­te­ri­als or­ga­nized around a topic. I also cre­ate mul­ti­ple boards on my ac­count and make them col­lab­o­ra­tive.

TestF­light: I use this app to al­low de­vel­op­ers to send me pri­vate ac­cess to their iPhone apps that are cur­rently be­ing tested. This is a use­ful way to ac­cess apps with­out hav­ing to re­lease them to the public through the App Store.

LinkedIn: When I’m at a con­fer­ence, I pre­fer con­nect­ing with other pro­fes­sion­als through LinkedIn. I can use it to quickly find out their ar­eas of ex­per­tise and how we are con­nected.
