Best Apps for Academics – Book Announcement

Please note that this is information from the author of this book.  This is not a book review.

Here’s the link:
http://bestappsforacademics.com/

This book will direct you to the best apps and help you to:

  • Take notes and organize them for findability
  • Streamline your research
  • Synchronize your life
  • Present information effectively

If you are like many people these days, you work from more than one location, using multiple laptops, desktops, and mobile devices, which can lead to problems with keeping your information in sync.

The good news is that by using multi-platform, multi-device apps, your information can be synchronized and available from anywhere, even if you use both Android and iOS devices.

Read more in my blog post (and please share):

Why you don’t need to stick with one mobile platform: 50 best apps for multi-platform productivity

These apps and more are described in full in the book, along with examples of how academics are using them.

Thanks for helping us spread the word. You can help by sharing the post above or the link to the book:
