Tools of the Trade

If you own an iPad, chances are you’ve discovered how annoying it is to try to write something that requires basic web browsing. Writing Kit is an iPad app that gives you the freedom to write in markdown formats and do quick research. The in-app browsing feature gives you linking options, so you can source your information. Export the file to Evernote, Facebook, Posterous, Tumblr and Twitter. But by far the best part is the price: It’s only $5.

Every time you misplace your cell phone, you know what it means to be panicked. Cell phones aren’t merely phones; they remember meetings, hold clients’ contact information and connect us to the world. To bypass your absentmindedness, use the ZOMM, which in addition to acting like a “wireless leash,” can work as a hands-free speakerphone and dial emergency numbers. Bluetooth links your cell to the ZOMM. The gizmo will give off a loud noise once the phone strays too far away. $89.99.
