From Gunnar Ackx of SCICON worldwide bvba on June 10, 2011:
Try the following iPhone-apps: * Units (converts, converts & converts some more) * Rain-radar : you can see a rainshower coming before it hits your site * Chronolite : excellent multiple timer (for monitoring mixing-times & pot-life of multiple mixed cans) * Color-Set : full range of all RAL-colors * Paint-Remedy : don't use it that often, but has some pretty good paint-defects photographs. * Linked In for iPhone : obvious, I think. * PresenTimer : large clock for keeping track of time when doing a presentation * Psychrome Tree : calculates RH & Dewpoint from Wet & Dry Bulb temperatures

From Lee Edelman of Independant on May 31, 2011:

     I use several smartphone apps/online tools everyday. Just to list a few: Dropbox: an online service that allows users to store and share files with others across the internet using file synchronization. Dropbox securely transfers all file data with SSL encryption. Dropbox also provides off-site file backup that’s 256-bit, AES- secured, ensuring proper file integrity and security. Dropbox not only allows me to have up-to-date files on all of my devices (ex: desktop, laptop, and Blackberry), but also allows me to share groups of files that cannot easily be sent via email (ex: 1000+ photos of a survey).

     TrueCrypt: free open-source software used for on-the-fly encryption. TrueCrypt utilizes the following algorithms of encryption: AES, Serpent, and Twofish. I mainly use TrueCrypt to secure potentially more data-sensitive files. While TrueCrypt isn’t technically a smartphone app or an online tool, one can see the necessity of using such an application every day.
