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?

iPad Only App - Designed for the iPad
Released: 2011-09-30 :: Category: Productivity

Faqden Labs are introducing the newest app in their line of IntelliVocab apps: IntelliVocab for Business. This app, designed by MIT students, is designed to help people get acclimated to advanced vocabulary and verbiage often used in business. The app is powered by MIT’s artificial intelligence laboratory and MIT’s Web semantic labs, bringing these advanced technologies into users’ hands to help them out. The app tests users with multiple choice questions, and pronounces the words so users can get a feel for actually using them. Words will also appear in different forms, like as adjectives and adverbs, so actually learning them and how to use them properly becomes the goal instead of just rote memorization. The app also tracks stats over time, ranking users after each practice session so they can track their improvement or forbid, their decline! IntelliVocab for Business is available as a free download for the rest of June, before it goes back to its normal price of $0.99.

iPhone App - Designed for the iPhone, compatible with the iPad
Released: 2011-06-17 :: Category: Business

One thing that’s sometimes very easy to forget – whether you’ve got an iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad in front of you, you’ve got one of the most valuable educational tools you can possibly have. PowerVocab taps into that side of the App Store by offering you a great way of extending your vocabulary.

Using various algorithms and other complicated things, PowerVocab is there constantly encouraging you to improve by tracking what words you’ve figured out the definition of easily enough, and what terms you need work on. You might think you know your stuff but you’re bound to be flummoxed by a word here or there. Being able to keep track of how you’re doing is all the more useful.

Offering 600 words in all, there’s plenty here to boost your word power. It’s an ideal app for those studying at the moment or those who just want to enhance their vocabulary. It’s made even more attractive by being a free download.
