Tools

OmniFocus

After trying many different ‘to do’ applications (Things, the Hit List, etc.), this is my favourite.

Visit the Omnifocus website.

Evernote

This is where I store bookmarks and keep sermon notes. I’ve got a Premium account, so I can access notes offline. If you’re new to Evernote, the best guide I’ve come across is ‘Evernote Essentials‘.

Visit the Evernote website.

Buffer

I’ve tried a number of tools for scheduling social media posts in advance. This is the best (and I pay to use the $10 plan).

Visit the Buffer website.

1Password

Helps keep track of passwords and licences on my phone, iPad and computer.

Visit the 1Password website.

Sparrow

A better way of accessing Gmail. A desktop client for my Mac.

Visit the Sparrow website.

Elvanto

My church has recently started using this as our member database.

Visit the Elvanto website.

Dropbox

Again, I’ve used lots of different apps for online storage. This one is the best.

Visit Dropbox website.

Alfred

This app saves time in searching on my computer and online. Every second counts!

Visit the Alfred website.

Eventbrite

The best tool to sell tickets to events.

Visit the Eventbrite website.

Wufoo

My long-term favourite app for creating surveys and online forms.

Visit the Wufoo website.

This is the best tool I’ve used to send email newsletters.
