Tools and Apps
Website and Software Tools and Mobile Apps for businesses and organizations.
I’ve talked before about Everypost, and labeled it “THE personal social media management tool.” I described it as a personal tool because, at the time, it only supported personal accounts on Facebook, Google+ and LinkedIn (plus Twitter, of course).

In September we reported that the updated Gmail for iOS7 was no longer correctly pushing notifications. Within the app, users were supposed to have the option of getting notifications only for mail filed within the Primary tab, or from All tabs (or none).

Facebook has released an update for their Messenger app, the stand-alone app that makes chatting with your Facebook friends more convenient. The updated app sports a fresh design that's in line with the new iOS7 look and feel, but it also adds the ability to message anyone who has text messaging. You can access your contacts and message them, or tap in a phone number and send that person a text message as well.

Google Search, the iOS app that gives iPhone users access to the Google Now functions, has received an extensive update that adds Notifications, Reminders, New cards, and the handsfree voice-activation option of "OK Google."
Many of these features were originally announced at Google I/O, and have been available on the Android platform for some time.
Being a freelance designer or running your own design shop is no picnic these days! You have to prospect clients, manage a team and vendors, and deliver great work against tight deadlines - all while balancing finances. One problem we hear over and over is that high quality images and graphics are expensive, but creating every asset from scratch for each project just doesn’t make sense. Designers face this type of trade off everyday, so we wanted to put together some simple suggestions to help you manage it.
