Not only is this a great tool that you can use on your computer, iphone, ipad, andriod, blackberry, and many other smart devices. (Mike’s favorite app)
Google docs: A free Web-based office suite and data storage, very similar design to Evernote, but Google Docs focus’ on Word, Excel, Powerpoint, etc. You won’t ever have to work about losing your work or forgetting you laptop. You’ll have access to your documents 24/7. (Jon loves using Google tools)
Calendar: The use of your calendar on your Outlook, Google Calendar, smart phone calendar, etc. is one of the most useful tools for any professional (especially when planning and scheduling is your main task in your job). (Christie keeps track of all her appointments using her Outlook Calendar)
