Time Management Apps – Check these out!

I’m impressed with two apps that sync between my Mac and my iPhone. If you’re a techno-nut like me, give them a look. You might find them useful in helping organize your life. The first, ToDo, I’ve been using for a while. I like the fact that on the MacBook Air, I can drag emails […]
