My Technologically Filled Day.

February 12, 2010 Leave a comment

My iPhone has really become an important aspect of my day-to-day routine. I posted updates to Twitter, update my status on Facebook, check my email, update my Calendar events, mark off my Task-list and use my voice to find a restaurant near me so I can make reservations for the night. It’s great.

I start my days off usually with a quick tweet or two from my iPhone twitter client Twittelator (free version available).

Once I’ve done that I scoot on to work, logging my arrival time into Momento, which is my daily journal app. It works great and I use it to log various conversations I’ve had throughout the day, and personal opinions on various items that pass through my desk… Opinions that can’t be voiced in a public forum due to job security. Another nice thing with Momento is that it connects to my facebook and twitter profiles, and pulls in my status and tweets from there, building a timeline I can follow at a later point in time. Posts that I make within Momento I can tag with various tags, include people and locations within it. Then at a later time, I can search through sort able tags to help find what I’m looking for. It works great

As I progress through the day I’ll obtain various new tasks I need to accomplish or complete, and I’ll log those into Pocket Informant (Free version available). Pocket Informant connects with my Toodeldo account and synchronizes with it. Allowing me to take my tasks home and access them via my laptop while I work from home. Pocket Informant also synchronizes pretty well with my Google Calendar allowing me to create and manage my calendar events on the go. Since Google is my central repository anyway for all my email, documents, RSS feeds and photo management, it’s nice that my apps all sync with Google and allow me to access my data everywhere I go.

As I get free time throughout the day I’ll try to spend some time reading my RSS feeds. The Google Reader works pretty well via a web browser on the iPhone, but I prefer to use MobileRSS (Free version available). It syncs with Google Reader and lets me send content to my Read It Later account (iPhone app available in Pro & Free), along with Instapaper, Delicious, Twitter, Facebook and Email.
It supports Google Article sharing and comments as well, which makes it nice.

As the day comes to a close I post a few more updates to twitter and facebook (via the facebook app), make what ever adjustments I need to do with my events and tasks, and off to bed I go to start a new day tomorrow using the same apps again.

I love how the iPhone has allowed me to be more productive with less effort. I even import and manage my iPhone photo’s with Google’s Picasa and it’s a piece of cake.

I ❤ my iPhone.
