If the smartphone hasn’t already taken over your life, chances are, it soon will. According to a 2010 Gartner report, by 2013 mobile phones will overtake PC’s as the most common Web access device worldwide. In fact, the install base of smartphones by the year 2013 is projected to be 241.8 million.
Part of what makes a smartphone so smart are the applications one can download and use. There are over 350,000 applications available for the iPhone, Android, and BlackBerry. A study done by Microsoft on diversity in smartphone usage showed that the median number of apps owned is 50 (and this doesn’t even include iPhone owners).
In today’s world of go, go, go, some apps, like Angry Birds, (a fantastic and fun app by the way) is the digital procrastination tool, while others can really help you be more creative, productive, and collaborative.
Since our goal is to enable you to be all of those things, we are excited to share the release of our latest product, the Mobile Application Resource List. In this list, we feature 21 of our favorite smartphone apps that stretch your mind, help track your big thoughts, and generally make you more innovative.
Out of the 21, I am most excited about shareyourboard, an Android app that enables you to take a picture of your whiteboard post brainstorm. Gone are the days of discerning ideas from fuzzy flip chart photos.
