Mobile App Watch - Productivity Apps
The digital professionals of 2014 can connect with work at a moment’s notice — thanks in large part to mobile devices. Be prepared for any task that comes your way by equipping your device with some of these productivity apps:
Microsoft Office for iPad
Microsoft has finally launched Office for iPad, enabling Office 365 subscribers to use Word, Excel, PowerPoint and OneNote apps directly from their Apple tablets. Anyone will be able to view documents through the apps, but only subscribers will have the ability to create and edit documents.
Klout introduced a new version of its iOS app that aims to unify the platform’s mobile and desktop experiences. The app offers users a personalized content stream which recommends articles based on the activity of the user’s friends and followers. This content can be shared, as well as supplemented with original images and location information.
IFTTT for iPad
Popular automation service IFTTT, which enables users to create “recipes,” which connect different Web services for digital task automation (like posting a Twitter message with each published blog post), has arrived on the iPad. The redesigned iOS app, created to work on the larger screens of iPads (in addition to iPhones), now gives users the ability to add push notifications in their recipes and includes a new iOS Photos Trigger that works with photos taken within a specific area.
Tidy up your to-do list with the Gneo app, which enables users to create tasks and organize them based on importance and urgency. Gneo features a Forecast view that combines a user’s calendar and to-do tasks for better planning, as well as leverages follow-ups and reminders to make sure tasks aren’t overlooked.
