How Do You Maintain Work/Life Balance? Donna, Associate Editor: I am a big believer in enabling Airplane Mode. It helps me disconnect and relax for an hour or two after work and still have access to my phone’s basic functions (Clock, Notes, etc.). Raph, CTO: I’ve found an app called Clever Routines ($0.99) that I use to create daily reminders to meditate, go for a run, or take a walk. It’s nice to get regular reminders to do some of the non-tech things that improve my quality of life. Alex, Editor in Chief: Since I work from my laptop, work is always just a few clicks away. To balance my time, I create set work hours and stick to them. This helps me stay away from that dreaded space where you’re not really…

Kansas City, MO Personal Historian, The Story Scribe, LLC (thestoryscribe.com) How is your iDevice integral to your work? My iPhone is a central part of my workday. As a personal historian, I interview people about their lives and then write their memoirs for them. I use my iPhone to record the interviews. How has it affected your productivity? My iPhone is not nearly as obtrusive as a microphone on a stand. With a bulky hand mic, it would be harder to put my clients at ease and to develop the rapport necessary for a good interview. Plus, when I use my iPhone to record the voice of the storyteller, I can go where that person leads, literally. Sometimes it’s out to the garage to show me the Harley motorcycle he bought in 1947; sometimes…

Matt Toubin West Nyack, NY Owner, Shine Events, Inc. (shineevents.com) How is your iDevice integral to your work? My iDevices allow me to take my event and entertainment photos and videos with me to meetings and site inspections. In my business, seeing is believing, so having all of my media with me on a mobile device is key to the creative process and making sales. I spend far less time fishing for photos and video and more time explaining the product and understanding my clients’ needs and wants. What are some favorite apps that keep you on track? Dropbox, for recalling additional photos and files; Pages, for taking notes at meetings; FileMaker Go, for access to my client database from wherever I am; and Vimeo, to access video footage. And to relax after work, what are your go-to…

GET IT TOGETHER! To-Do List & Prioritizing Apps CARROT To-Do ($199) If you’re sick of “vanilla” to-do apps and need something a little more snarky to whip you into shape, skitter those fingers to the App Store and download CARROT—it’s a sarcasm lover’s dream! While the app only features a simple list format—it doesn’t allow you to drill down to sub-levels of tasks or organize items by date, for example—it’s perfect for those who just want to jot down quick reminders and get verbal praise for their accomplishments, however minor CARROT encourages you with points and level-up rewards (you’ll even get to take care of a virtual cat!), but if you slack off for too long, the app will turn black and unleash a verbal tirade. Keep up your end of the bargain by…

New York, NY VP of Litigation Support Services, the Expert Institute (theexpertinstitute.com) How is your iDevice integral to your work? I am a recruiter, so my iPhone is my lifeline. I make calls from 8 in the morning until 8 at night, and sometimes past that. I am constantly chatting with people, from my recruits to the clients they work for. How has it affected your productivity (both advantages and drawbacks)? My iPhone lets me be extremely productive. I can work from anywhere—at the gym locker room, walking home from the train, or while I’m lounging at home. The only drawback is that sometimes I’m too focused on work—I tend to get in trouble for not paying attention to my girlfriend during dinner. What are some favorite apps that keep you on track? I use Gmail…
