Note taking app Beesy now supports the Livescribe 3 Smartpen. The new combo allows folks to manipulate data captured on/by the Livescribe 3 from within the Beesy task management app.
With the Livescribe 3 and Beesy, professionals can take notes with a real pen on paper and turn their handwritten notes into reusable digital text. To simplify organization, customers can create comments, tasks or drawings just by tapping short-cut buttons printed at the top of each page in their Livescribe notebooks. The Beesy app automatically turns those notes into professional meeting minutes, project tracking documents and organized task lists complete with assignments and due dates for team members.
On the heels of its insanely popular television program The Walking Dead, AMC TV has announced that it is tapping Finnish developer Next Game to develop a mobile game based on the TV show. The game is said to be in production, and the launch should coincide with Season 5 of the show.
Both companies will partner to market the app. According to AMC President Charlie Collier, “We chose to team up with Next Games because of their outstanding creative and technical talent, as well as a willingness to re-imagine the unique and compelling world of The Walking Dead, which has built a significant and passionate global fan community,” he says.
Next Game chief Teemu Huuhtanen is equally upbeat. “Our take on the undead survival franchise will match the against-all-odds action and moment-to-moment tension of the TV series. We want to find that sweet spot where gameplay and narrative inform and reinforce one another. Like AMC’s The Walking Dead itself, we’re not giving away too many details right out the gate, but I can confidently state it’s unlike anything we’ve seen from The Walking Dead franchise on home or mobile gaming hardware before.”

While the internet may complicate business and allow for quite the distance between working team members, that distance doesn’t always have to be a hinderance. New and intuitive collaboration software is quickly popping up on many platforms. Pride is a new work collaboration solution on the iPhone by events and enterprise-focused developer DoubleDutch.
DoubleDutch Pride keeps teams up-to-date on current customers and projects being worked on, creates an atmosphere of openness for the team, and reduces the time and energy spent with meetings and constant emailing. Users can post updates with tagged customers, projects, or locations. Users can sort the feeds by customer, project, or the entire team’s feed. The app also has a sort of game mechanic were users can earn trophies and badges, view their productivity analytics, and see a leaderboard with their own statistics stacked up against their co-workers.
DoubleDutch Pride is free, so there’s no reason for you and your team not to give it a try.
Thanks to the wonders of the internet, it’s not hard to collaborate with work colleagues around the world. That’s precisely how, for example, I’m based in the UK while this very site and most of its staff are based in the US. Basecamp in particular is an extremely handy tool for such things allowing users around the world to liaise with each other through the site and its project management facility.
So how about a way of using Basecamp through an iPad? That’s exactly what Trailhead offers. For a mere $1.99, users get an app that allows them to connect to any of their basecamp accounts and browse through the projects. Messaging is possible through it as well as managing To Do lists in a way that Trailhead promises is even easier than the web application!
Developers Faqden Labs promise plenty of updates coming soon too including Calendar functionality, Milestones, People and Companies details plus an Overview.
Trailhead looks destined to be a vital tool to many workers, so why not give it a try?
Campfire, the project collaboration application with real time chat designed for private groups where members can share files, text, code and more (think of it as a more powerful IRC client), can now be found on the App Store as an official application by 37signals due to a takeover of Ember, the third-party application developer of Campfire. Ember, as it was then known, was originally priced at $9.99, but developers 37signals saw an opportunity which allowed them to “work out a deal [with Ember and make] a few changes to the app” according to the official blog. As of July 26th, the application has rebranded and re-released with a new price tag: rather, no price tag at all. It’s free to download from the iTunes App Store.
Although the application itself is free, a Campfire account is not. The basic package allows up to 12 chatters and 1GB of storage for $12 a month, and for $24 a month you can upgrade that to 25 chatters, 3GB of storage as well as 500 conference call minutes and enhanced security over the Basic package. A free 30-day trial is available on all accounts.
37signals continues to become a prominent player in the business network, having released other popular applications and clients that allow more professional social networking to take place. Basecamp, Highrise and Backpack all have one thing in common: their developer is Campfire creator 37signals. You can download the free Campfire application by clicking the link below, which will redirect you to iTunes.
