4 Internet Apps I use to be more productive

April 25th, 2011 by Gallagher John 1 Comment

To stay productive, there are some specific Internet technology that I use.  When I open up Internet Explorer each day, here are the tabs that I see:

 YouVersion is a free Bible app that I use for daily reading.  Currently, I am going through the New Testament in a year.  I also have this on my Blackberry.

Hootsuite is a tool I use to compile of multiple feeds including Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn.  I can review the feeds quickly and also make lists of people I want to follow so I don’t have to look at ALL the people that I follow at once.

I use Google reader to compile the blogs that I follow so I don’t have to remember each web page and it also helps to keep my email cleared out.  Anytime a blogger I follow puts out a new post, the RSS feed is pulled into Google Reader.  I currently follow about 75 blogs.  Of course, I don’t read EVERY post, but it allows me again to quickly peruse the list.

LoseIt is a free Internet app that I use to track my calorie intake and exercise calorie burn.  Since using this app, I have lost 12 pounds in about 8 weeks!!  It makes for a great accountability tool!

These are the apps that I use on a daily basis to be more productive. 

What apps do you use to be productive?  What else should I be using?
