I am on the interwebs a lot. I claim it is for work, some of it is, a lot of it is not.
Here are five of my favorite services or web applications.
I recently switched from Gmail to Fastmail. I had heard about the coming promotions tab and that announcement did not sit right with me. It was the icing on the cake as they say. I have had a fear for some time about Gmail dropping IMAP support, and just allowing dedicated apps to access email. I can’t say that I’ve missed anything at all from Gmail. I followed the directions from Switching from Gmail to FastMail that Max Masnick posted. I was not brave enough to try the Perl script, but did use IMAPSize to port all of my messages from Gmail over to Fastmail.
If you are not using Pinboard you should try it out. From the Pinboard site: “Pinboard is a personal archive for things you find online. You save bookmarks to the site and can find and search them later from any computer. You can also set the site up to automatically import your links and tweets from a number of other services.”
I admit, I have waffled on picking a RSS reader for quite some time after the Google Reader news. I finally settled for Feed Wrangler on the web and Mr Reader on my Apple devices. Still not a big fan of the Feed Wrangler website, but I am hoping it will get better.
Fitbit is a marriage of fitness tracker that you wear and a great web dashboard. With the Fitbit Flex on my wrist, I am able to track my daily activities. I strive for 10,000 steps a day, I do not always get there but most days I do. Fitbit keeps me moving and striving to get in as many steps in a day as possible.
I know Nozbe is not the popular “in” choice for task management, but the application is great. It gets new features added regularly and the sync works wonderfully on all of my devices (Android included).
