I don’t know how many times I get an email and it has something in it that’s important, so I do one of two things. I either leave it in my inbox or I archive it thinking that I am going to remember about it later. We all know how this goes: it either gets buried under all my other emails and I never look at it or I just forget about it. Or what about this scenario, you are out and about and you remember that you need to stop at the grocery store on the way home for milk. I know for me, I tend to just shoot myself a quick email so that I can remember or I put it in my task manager app and set an alarm. But, these never seem to work the way that I want them to and since I change task managers like I change my clothes, that doesn’t help either.

That is why when I came across FollowUpThen (FUT), I just had to try it out and see if it could work for me. The minute I started to use it, I started to see the potential and the different ways that I could use it to remember things. FUT is so simple to use and learn that you will find yourself using it literally in seconds.

I’m always on the lookout for nice notes apps. I use Evernote, Notepad, Writeroom, Ghost Writer, and more, and will use a different notes app depending on what I want to do with the notes. The great thing about notes apps is that you can use them for so many purposes: jotting a note down, writing a longform piece, saving a phone number or tip for later, and even making list of things I need to do. That’s why it’s nice to have a lot of different notes apps, so you can use different ones for different purposes.

I came across Fetchnotes recently, which looked like a really simple, easy-to-use app for taking notes online. Let’s see if it lived up to my expectations, and if it’d fit in my workflow to replace any of the other notes apps I already use.

Sometimes email and Facebook and Twitter and everything else isn’t enough. Sometimes, you need to send an SMS. For many of us, that sometimes is more often than we might think; no wonder unlimited SMS plans are still in vogue most places. When you send SMS messages that turn into a conversation, you can quickly send more messages than you even realize. And even though smartphones keep threatening to make SMS obsolete, the frank truth is that SMS is here to stay until everyone you ever txt has an internet connection on their phone and is using the same messaging app.

So you need to send an SMS, but pulling out your phone to txt while you’re sitting at your computer seems rather odd. Why not put the larger keyboard to use, and just send an SMS from your desktop? There’s a number of apps and sites that let you send free online SMS messages, but there’s one you likely already have open: Gmail. If you didn’t know you could send SMS messages right from Gmail, keep reading to see how you can sta in touch with everyone through Gmail, even if they don’t have email on their phones.

Mobile phones have, in the last few years, become a sheer necessity in almost everyone’s life. Imagining life without a mobile phone is like imagining a world without air – nothing would function and people would be at a loss on what to do. We use mobile phones for everything, from checking the weather forecast to keeping in touch with everyone – the possibilities with them are endless.

Along with this sharp rise in mobile phones (especially, in the past few years, smartphones), mobile advertisers have found ever more ingenious ways to cash in. Mobile advertising and marketing is big business and, owing to the rise in popularity of smartphones, a growing business. There are many different ways to embed adverts into mobile phones, either through applications or advertisements on mobile-optimized webpages.
