Today’s blog post is basically just going to be a link dump. We had a really interesting #CMEchat conversation about the various techy tools we use to make our professional lives easier. Below are comments that were made about specific tools along with links to them. I tried to organize them as best I could, but there were a lot! To read the entire #CMEchat transcript, go here.
I just downloaded Socialite for Mac – not sure if I like it yet
I have found that I like listening to TweetSpeaker on the iPhone while I drive, it reads all the tweets that I missed.
I like tweetchat for twitter chats
TweetDeck is my main tool. Makes tweeting, tweetchats, etc much easier. Don’t like the re-design tho
Tweetdeck is good but can be overwhelming
I only use TweetDeck for Twitter. Some like to bring in LinkedIn, FBook, etc, but I prefer not to
The auto-refresh is what puts TD over the top for me
We stopped using Tweetdeck owing to the superior reporting capabilities of Hootsuite
agreed, i used Hootsuite too
Hootsuite app…only way to stay plugged in.
Does anyone use #socialbro to organize subjects?
I’m a big fan of Evernote for curating content
ah, just discovered Evernote myself…awesome
If you use @Evernote, and add @myEN to it, all your tweets go into your Evernote acct
Evernote and Instapaper are great for saving your SoMe travels.
Evernote can also record in addition to features mentioned by @medpedsdoctor
used @Evernote Hello at the ACEHP meeting with a few people: still have @theCMEguy ‘s cool photo!
EvernoteHello loads into Evernote. It takes a pic, remembers location, and can input directly into contacts. free app
E’note Hello one of many add-ons that offer specific features for the main app.
Dropbox , Evernote are two not to live without
Agree! Big fan of DropBox…
Dropbox is a great way to connect multiple devices to eliminate the need for version control
Foursquare…only way to find out where @meducate is each day. 😉
I’m curious: do some use Foursquare for safety reasons (in case they don’t show up to something, know “last location
I don’t use it so my stalkers can’t find me
I admit that Foursquare still baffles me. I don’t “get it” and I get a lot…
If you think #foursquare is awkward wait till you try #glympse
I love Zite for my tablet. It’s a great way for me to discover new content, new blogs, etc
i saw awesome note and was wondering about it. thx for the tip, will have to check out their UI.
Any Flipboard users out there? Had questions at #acehp12 from people wondering about RSS readers for tablet
Flipboard=slick, but I always forget about it
I’m becoming a bigger fan of Flipboard every day – key is to customize the view, though!
DuetBrowser on the tablet is pretty snazzy as well. SidebySide: 4 sites all on one page.
#xobni has changed my inbox, able to keep track of each contact in the context of our conversation/project.
Used xobni when I ran windoze in emulation on my Mac but no native Mac client still?
@timclynch you were my entree into Google Docs now i use it for everything
Have any of you used Easy Assessment? tablet assessment tool (I think built for high school teachers?)
Easy assessment sounds interesting.
