iPhone Twitter Client adds Push Notification

No doubt I check in with Twitter more than email nowadays. I saw a post on Twitter from one of my followers earlier this week, "will Twitter replace email?" At a recent meeting of industry professionals I brought up an example of the use of Twitter, an industry friend had an issue with his pump station last year. He posted issues on Twitter and by the end of the day he had his station repaired, all through the help of his followers. Twitter is no doubt a powerful networking tool and has gotten more powerful.

Recently Twitter has been updated to include Push Notification. No need to continually log in to see who is responding to your DM's or making mention of you. The new Twitter client will send a push notification to your iPhone when either of these takes place. I have been utilizing Boxcar for a couple years and I am glad to see Twitter is moving in this direction. I am able to be notified when I receive a DM or a mention without having to log in and continually follow Twitter. I can remain productive and not bog down in the addictive finger swipe of looking through tweets.

Google Docs now editing on iPhone

More so than ever we as Superintendents and Turf Managers need to be more mobile. I find myself needing to access many of my important documents on the go. I know many people utilize Google Docs as a way to do this. In my opinion there are easier ways to do this, but to each their own. Google has finally announced the near release of the ability to edit your Google Docs on a mobile device, specifically the iPhone. Check out the press release below along with a short video.

Editing your Google Docs on the go

With Google Docs, we’re always trying to make you more productive—and part of that means making it possible for you to get things done from anywhere, at anytime. That’s why we’re excited that the new documents editor now supports editing on your mobile browser. We’re rolling this out over the next few days.

That means that...
You can work on that important memo...while on the bus or train to work.
If you’re behind on a group proposal, but really want to make it to the ball game tonight, your whole team can work on it from the bleacher seats.
You can take minute-by-minute notes at a concert so you’ll always remember the setlist. And your friends can jealously follow in real-time at home.
...and the list goes on!
Take a look at this video to see mobile editing in action:
