Just wanted to share some apps I’ve been using lately that I absolutely love:
DAY 1 - it’s a journaling app, that syncs across all my Apple platforms (iPhone, iPad, macbook, desktop) so whatever screen I have access to I can journal. I recently started journaling again and this app makes it easy and simple to use. I can also add images, locations, and time.
DIRECT MAIL - This app is for my business. It allows me to send HTML emails, which are essential when sending out e-campaigns of my work to current and potential clients. The app provides tracking of the emails, so you can see who has opened the emails and what links they have clicked. They offer different pricing options depending on your needs and budget.
FREELANCER - This is a online community of freelancers that I use for all my web-design needs. The set-up is fairly simple, you create a proposal, post it for the online community to bid on and select the freelancer you think is the best fit for your project/budget. The freelancers are located all over the world so, as soon as you post a project you start to receive multiple bids. The last project I posted at 1am, and had a freelancer working on the project by 2:30am. The project was complete in 24hrs.
EVERNOTE - This is probably my favorite app and I pretty much use this for any and everything. If I’m putting together a creative brief, a call sheet, storyboard, timeline, goals, etc… you name it I do it on evernote. The thing I love about the app is the ability to create documents, send out a link to that document, and if I need to make modifications to the document the only thing the person with the original link has to do is refresh there screen to see it.
DROPBOX - This is my file sharing, cloud storage, backup drive. I have 2 computer, so I want access to my updated files on both units, so I set-up dropbox as the drive to store them on. Now, no matter what unit I am using I always have the correct file. I also use dropbox to send my clients the proofs and final images. I pretty much transfer everything on dropbox except money.
