The first I will talk about is Feedly. The purpose of this app to to collect the blogs I follow in one "feed". This allows me to stay current on the happenings of the artists I like most without having to log onto each of their websites/blogs to see if they have new posts. I like the way this app displays the posts and the ease of navigating through them.
The second app I like is HootSuite. This one collects all my feeds from my social accounts including Facebook, Twitter, etc. I can quickly scan the list, see the information I need and reply quickly if there is a need.
Issuu is another favorite. This app lists all sorts of interesting online magazines that I can then read or scan for inspiration and information. It is a great way to find information on new techiques or materials. When setting up your Issuu account you define your interests or scan their topics to find magazines that may interest you.
All these apps are free. There are others that do similar things so get out there and find some that will simplify your life.
Have you found a great app that you think I should know about? Please let me know.
