Read It Later

Have you ever been interrupted in the middle of reading a riveting article? Instead of sending it to yourself in an email to finish reading later, you can save it to Read It Later, an app that allows any webpage or video to be saved to view at a later time, even offline. This app automatically syncs across all devices, formats articles for best viewing size, customizes text for easier reading and allows content to be shared to other apps like Evernote, Twitter and Facebook. It comes in both a free and pro version ($2.99).

CloudOn is a free iPad app that allows users to work with Microsoft Office and Dropbox in one app. Once a user is signed up for a Dropbox account, they can create, view and edit files directly in Microsoft Word, Excel and PowerPoint. All documents are stored in the cloud through Dropbox, which allows users to access them whenever they are online. Other features include the ability to display, edit or create charts, change formatting, use spell check, and track changes in Word documents.

Android -
DroidEdit is a text and source code editor with SFTP (Secret File Transfer Protocol) support. It features syntax highlighting for several languages including Javascript, HTML, CSS, Ruby and more. This app is especially useful for new-generation Android tablets with external keyboards such as the Asus Transformer. There is also a free ad-supported version that includes all of the same features as the $1.30 version, with the exception that it does not include SFTP support.

Android -
This free app from Evernote allows users to annotate, edit and share screenshots and images with colleagues, friends and family. Users can utilize shapes, arrows, sketches and text to get their point across in photos, screenshots, maps and webpages. All “Skitchs” can be saved into Evernote because the two apps are integrated. This app is perfect for brainstorming business ideas, sketching and sharing, identifying points of interest on maps and more.

HoursTracker – Time Sheet
iTunes -
This is an ideal app for Web freelancers. It allows users to keep track of time and earnings at their hourly jobs or as independent contractors. The app continues to track time even when other apps are being used or when the phone is powered off without running in the background, which means no extra drain on the phone’s battery. Users can also track more than one job at a time and assign a pay rate to calculate earnings – including overtime.
