Mobile Apps for PR Pros On-The-Go

In PR, there is never really such a thing as logging-off. To provide our clients with the best possible service, we have to be in the know when it comes to trends, relationships, action items and even the best places to grab a bite to eat. Luckily, there are some great apps out there to help us stay organized and in control no matter in what situation we find ourselves. Here are a few of my favorites:
Hashable – This app takes all the best business features from your favorite social networks -- like Twitter, LinkedIn and Facebook -- and puts them all right at your fingertips. It allows you to easily manage and update your contacts, keep track of people you just met and provide introductions for others via e-mail and Twitter.
Say What? – Stay on top of the latest trends, no matter where you are. Say What? Takes your selected keywords and scans Twitter, Digg, blogs and forums and provides you with ongoing updates.
Evernote – This is a great tool to help you stay on top of important tasks on those days when all you do is go from meeting to meeting. With Evernote, you can create text notes, snap shots and voice recordings that you can review later to make sure you didn't miss anything.
Flipboard – This app easily organizes your favorite media outlets, Twitter groups and social media feeds and delivers all the updates to your phone in an easy-to-read magazine-style format. You can even share articles and provide comments, so you never feel like you are out of the loop.
Urbanspoon – If you are on-the-go and need to entertain clients or media contacts, just shake your phone and Urbanspoon provides restaurant suggestions for your area. Keep shaking until you find a restaurant you'd like to try.
