PRESENTER: Beth Ziesenis, author of Upgrade To Free: The Best Free And Low-Cost Online Tools And Apps
Beth Ziesenis, your new “nerdy best friend” and author of Upgrade To Free; The Best Free & Low-Cost Online Tools And Apps, is this week’s featured podcast. The whole book is full of apps and web sites that will keep you tied to your computer or smartphone for weeks testing them all out! Before the interview, Heather and I played with a few that caught our interest, and everyone in the office could hear us squeal with delight and awe with what we found! My favorites (from what I demoed) were: Xobni (inbox spelled backwards); BeFunky; Prezi; and Tom’s Planner…but that’s just scratching the surface of what all’s available! Categories of tools she covers in the book (to name just a few) – efficiency at home, picture editing, screencapture, photo and fonts, project management, to-do lists/reminders, office software, PDF and file conversion, social media…and more! In her interview, she describes her recommendations of top tools for admins.
