For consumers or businesses searching for apps, it’s a tedious process.

First, there’s the big divergence of desktop apps and mobile apps.

Second, apps are divided by the underlying platform – Windows, Mac, Android, iOS, Windows Phone and Blackberry.

Then there are the multiple app stores – Apple’s App Store, GooglePlay, Microsoft’s Windows Store, Amazon’s Android store and the countless independent software vendors who sell directly.

And none of these app stores sell or allow you to search for browser add-ons or extensions.

All in all, not a convenient option for both consumers or businesses that support multiple platforms and devices.

In this post, I will show you how you can easily find apps for your Windows or Mac computers and Android, iOS and Windows Phone mobile devices at one location.

 forZoho ContactManager for Small BusinessesIIT Madras alumnus Sridhar Vembu’s business apps company Zoho has launched a new online contact manager with an unusual pricing model.

Zoho says for a limited time it’ll let users pay what they want for its new online ContactManager application after the initial free 30-day trial.

Small Business App

Targeted at small businesses, ContactManager lets users keep all their interactions with clients, suppliers, and partners in a centralized address book.

Zoho has designed the new app to provide a unified view of all interactions by keeping key information like tasks, meeting notes, history and important e-mail conversations with contacts right inside a contact’s page.

A free companion app is available for iOS and Android phones to let users access their contact’s phone number, e-mail address, notes and other details via the native app for iPhone and Android phones.

ContactManager works with Zoho’s Card Scanner app for iPhone to import contact information.

Another useful feature is ContactManager’s integration with Google Apps.

Eisenpower is Now QuadrantoEisenpower Interface

I purchased the Eisenpower task manager app (version 1.1.3) from the Mac AppStore for $4.99 in March 2013 and have been using it on and off.

The beauty of Eisenpower is its simplicity: there’s no learning curve to get started.

Within a few seconds after downloading it to my iMac, I was using it. This Mac app is truly that simple.

Based on the famous Eisenhower Matrix, the app lets you prioritize tasks by importance and urgency into four quadrants:

1. Important and Urgent
2. Important and Not Urgent
3. Not Important and Urgent
4. Not Important and Not Urgent

The app also provides iCloud based syncing of projects, tasks and reminders to your other iCloud enabled Macs and sends reminders to your iPhone and iPad.

New Features, New Name, Higher Price

This morning Waschhaus Media, the German company behind Eisenpower, put out a new version of the app (version 1.3), changed its name and upped the price to $6.99.

It looks like the upgrade is free to existing users. Continue reading »
