Calendar – The first thing needed for organization is a calendar. In addition to a trusty paper calendar (never needs charging!), we highly recommend Sunrise. It is free and syncs with your existing calendars and several apps such as Asana and Evernote. They recently implemented real time sync with Google calendar. The web calendar and the apps are easy to use and are nice to look at too. Sunrise for iOS Sunrise for Android Sunrise for Web

…Feedly! We’ve been testing Feedly since the July 1 cutoff for Google Reader. So far, we’re impressed. They made a lot of strides to welcome Google Reader users and as a dedicated RSS reader, it beats out Flipboard and Pulse. Sure you can use those two services to view all your items from Google Reader, Feedly offers the layout that is closest to Google Reader and it is available on mobile devices (Android, Amazon Fire, and iOS) and the web. All versions of Feedly are well integrated with each other and you can connect several other web services including Pocket, LinkedIn, Google +, Facebook, Twitter, Evernote, and Pinterest. Better yet? Feedly allows you to customize what page you start on when you open the program, it allows you to choose your layout and, just like Google Reader, it allows you to mark all of your feeds as read at once.

There are always tons of new apps coming out and apps that are new to all of us. Some of these are available on Android, all are available on iPhone. We all need new apps to keep ourselves occupied during the work day or school day and during our down time. And with a few cool holidays and travel season coming up, what better to keep ou occupied in the airport, train station or bus station? As a side note, to make the Android users happy, there is an entire new series of Android posts with info on apps, new Android software releases, and some new tech to use Android coming over the next couple months. Stay tuned and look out!
Have you rooted your Android Phone? Do you like experimenting with different ROMs? Have grown tired of the whole wipe, install, wipe, install cycle? If you answered yes to those questions, then BootManager by Init2WinItApps is just the app for you.
If you haven’t rooted your phone but want to learn how then RootzWiki is probably your best source. If you haven’t looked at any alternate ROMs my current favorites are CyanogenMod and MIUI. You can find lots more via the aforementioned RootzWiki and the XDA Android Forums..

I was reading this comparison post between the iPhone 4s and the Droid Bionic and it got me thinking – besides the phones themselves and their specifics, why do you have a smartphone? What do you do with it? I’d love to see why other people have theirs and maybe get some new ideas for how to use my smartphone.
