Five iPhone Apps to Make You a More Effective Leader
CBN.com Leaders have intense demands on their time, and a large part of being an effective leader is managing that limited time efficiently. However, crafting to-do lists and creating carefully ordered, color-coded spreadsheets often wastes more time than it saves.
Thankfully, you have an iPhone. And while some may believe this handy piece of mobile technology can be a considerable time waster, it can also unlock your inner time manager. As a leader, leveraging technology to suit your needs is critical.
Here are five iPhone apps that will make you a more effective leader. (And no, Angry Birds isn’t one of them.)
Never forget anything ever again. That’s what Evernote promises with this digital archive app. Collect geo-tagged photos, written notes and voice recordings and synchronize them with your home computer for reference later. Then search your notes to find exactly what you’re looking for. Perfect for capturing meeting notes, photos of whiteboards or that “a-ha moment” you’ve been looking for. Free.
Why type when you can talk? Dragon Dictation is a powerful voice recognition app that transforms anything you say into text. It’s great when you’re on the go and need to jot down a quick note or send a short message—and it works up to five times faster than typing. Free.
Instapaper is the bookmarking app that allows you to save web pages for later offline reading. It’s perfect for long articles or blog posts you want to read but don’t have time for. Save them on Instapaper and read them later on a bus, in line or wherever. No internet connection necessary. $4.99.
