Writing Tools, Part 3 – iPad Applications for Authors

Writing Tools, Part 3 – iPad Applications for Authors | BUSINESS and more | Scoop.it

In less than a month, my Apple iPad, as I described in Part 1 and Part 2, quickly became an essential writing tool helping me save time building my brand by planning, writing, promoting, and profiting from published books.


This is not to say, of course, that the iPad is a replacement for desktop or laptop computers. But, the iPad certainly complements them, adding a new dimension of convenience and usability that has recharged the way I work.

 

The following is an informal survey of the primary iPad applications that I have grown to depend on. If you’re already an iPad user, you undoubtedly have your own preferences – and I encourage you to share your preferences and experiences with me and other Personal Branding Blog followers...

Amazing set of features launched by Facebook since Google + launch

Amazing set of features launched by Facebook since Google + launch | BUSINESS and more | Scoop.it

It’s just over 3 months since Google dropped the bombshell that it was launching their own social network and inevitably the attention immediately switched to Facebook to see what they would do in counter the launch. Facebook were initially quiet but they went in to their famous “Lockdown” phase and started rolling out a whole host of new features many of which were lightly “inspired” by Google +. If anything the launch by Google seems to have helped accelerate the development cycle at Facebook with the main beneficiaries being the end users who are getting an improved service. Whatever way you look at it and despite the fact that Facebook were working on some of this stuff before anyway you can’t but be impressed at the staggering response to the launch of Google + by Facebook…

Make An iPhone, Android App Without Knowing A Line Of Code

Make An iPhone, Android App Without Knowing A Line Of Code | BUSINESS and more | Scoop.it

Maybe you have thought, but you have abandoned the idea for lack of jurisdiction and / or financial means. Here is an article that should interest you. If you decide to make your app, thank you to inform us with a link here. [note mg]


JamPot's new AppBuilder asks a series of questions and spits out a genuine, though limited-function, app. It could blow the market wide open.


With JamPot's AppBuilder, you can build a genuine iPhone or Android app in mere minutes for free--according to the company's own website. The young company, savvy to the ever-shifting smartphone market, says it will soon support Windows Phone 7 too, meaning it'll address the market that RIM seems to be losing its grip on very fast according to new surveys on smartphone use.


The idea behind AppBuilder, JamPot's VP of Sales Matthew David explained to Fast Company, is simple. By using its web interface, pretty much anyone, no matter their coding expertise, can create a smartphone app and have it running on their device within minutes.

Build Your Own Mobile App With Appsbar

Build Your Own Mobile App With Appsbar | BUSINESS and more | Scoop.it
Everyone talks about how important it is to build an iPhone or Android app, but it doesn’t look inexpensive or easy. Until now. I’ve been testing appsbar, a free Web-based app that allows small business owners create their own iOS or Android application.


I found appsbar.com when researching the digital coupon phenomenon (think Groupon and Living Social) and discovered a post by appsbar founder Scott Hirsch, who built the tool, in part, as a do-it-yourself coupon service. From the merchant point of view, the pricing of coupons is expensive. Most business owners considering coupons could benefit from a tool that lets you build it yourself and keep the profit margins higher...

iOS 5: The Top 10 New Features

iOS 5: The Top 10 New Features | BUSINESS and more | Scoop.it

The new iOS 5 goes live soon, bringing with it revamped notifications and more than 200 new features for your iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch. These are the top ten, and then some more.

 

Some of these features you already had in your iPhone or iPad. They just came in third-party apps.

 

If you used apps like the must-have WhatsApp, which allows you to message in an extremely easy way with all kinds of phones for free, you already were enjoying something like iMessage (even while iMessage adds important services, like device-wide conversation synchronization)...

Writing Tools, Part 1 – Why Authors Need iPads

Writing Tools, Part 1 – Why Authors Need iPads | BUSINESS and more | Scoop.it

An Apple iPad can make a major contribution to your writing and marketing success, whether you’re a self-employed professional writing a book to build your brand or an entrepreneur creating social media content to market your small business.


I can understand, though, if you think I’ve overstated the benefits of writing and marketing

with an iPad.

 

Confession: I was originally skeptical about using an iPad for writing and marketing.

 

I doubted that an iPad would quickly become a significant part of my daily writing and social media marketing.

 

As a result, when I received one as a birthday gift, I viewed it as something else to complicate my life! I never expected it how much it would actually simplify my life and save a lot of time...
