An Introduction to Skitch [Video]

An Introduction to Skitch [Video]

    I don’t think you can heap more praise on a tool than to add it to your “launch on startup” elite core. Skitch has been in mine since the first day I downloaded it

    And…it is free!

    We are a visual species, if a picture is worth a thousand words, then a picture with words in it must be worth, well, more! And a picture you can write and draw on is worth much more. Skitch turns that thousand word picture into more!

    Skitch is one of those unique apps (or, if you prefer, utilities) that will become an integral part of your day and it is now available from the same folks who give us Evernote.

    What is Skitch?

    Skitch is basically a screen capture and annotation tool. Take a look at my video — it does a better job in explaining things.

    As you can see, with Skitch you can:

    • Capture screens
    • Capture windows
    • Import photos
    • Take pictures
    •  Annotate
    • Illustrate
    • Share
    • Resize
    • Compose

    I encourage you to give Skitch a try and see for yourself how truly powerful a tool it is. And if you have suggestions for future videos, please let me know in the comments.

      7 Best Project Management Apps to Boost Productivity

      7 Best Project Management Apps to Boost Productivity

      Project management doesn’t need to be a complicated thing, not if you have apps that make things a whole lot simpler. When you have project management apps, you can take care of your team, tasks and deadlines, without even being in the office. You don’t even have to spend a lot of money to get most of the apps you might need.

      Here are the 7 best project management apps to super boost your team’s productivity:

      1. Basecamp

        It’s probably the most well-known project management app out there. It allows you to organize projects that act as a central location for everything and contains such things as to-do lists, notes, events, files, and much more.

        It is user-friendly, and has a free 30-day trial period. After that, the plan is $99 per month.

        2. Asana

          If you are looking for something that is not difficult to use, check out Asana. This is a great task management app that can be used for managing projects as well.

          In a nutshell, Asana helps you create and share task lists with your team. The app is simple but smart enough and has got a lot of integrations. Teams with up to 15 members can use Asana for free. Teams with 15 members and up can choose plans that range from $10.99 per month.

          3. Casual

            This is a unique app that offers a different way of doing things. On Casual, you plan your tasks just by drawing them as a flowchart. The neat thing is that Casual helps you visualize and track dependencies between tasks.

            This app is incredibly intuitive and works great for personal projects, as well as for organizing projects for small teams. You can try it for free, and if you don’t like it, there is no obligation to pay for anything.

            4. Trello

              This app is incredibly user-friendly, and is based on Kanban boards. It actually works like a virtual whiteboard with post-it-notes.

              Trello is great for organizing your to-do lists, ideas, and is very easy to use. You can create several boards to use for various projects, and it’s free of cost. Trello is available to iOS and Android users as well.

              5. OmniPlan

                This is an awesome app for iPhone and iPad users. If you love Gantt charts, this is definitely an app that you can get a lot out of.

                You start out by creating a simple project outline. Then you can use the app to help you through every step of the project until its completion.

                A standard plan for iOS costs just $99.99, and the pro plan is only $199.99.

                6. Podio

                Advertising

                  This is a great app for medium and large-sized teams working on projects. The special point about Podio is that there are additional features such as CRM and social intranet.

                  There are four different packages: Free, which is free for up to five employees and five external users; Basic, which is $9 per month per employee; Plus, which is $14 per month per employee, and Premium, which is $24 per month per employee.

                  Find out more about Podio here.

                  7. Microsoft Project

                    This is one of the most commonly-used project management apps. However, it is also one of the most difficult apps to use. It does have a lot of features that are popular with project managers, which is why we have chosen to include in on this list. You can customize reports, track burn rates, and stay on track until projects are complete.

                    The basic plan starts with $7 per month, which allows you project team members to collaborate in the cloud, via web browser or mobile.
