    Those of you that use the iPhone, tell me some of your best apps that could be beneficial in reporting. I have all the travel and weather ones, and also the one that allows you to use your phone as a recording device. Very nice. Any others to look out for?

    JobFinder would probably be an important one in today's industry. And maybe iJobs.

    I use iProRecorder instead of the native voice recording app, it's got a jog wheel that is great for transcribing.

    Notes app works for the obvious typing.

    TweetDeck allows me to read and post to Twitter and Facebook feeds from multiple accounts, meaning I can use both personal and work accounts simultaneously.

    I've used iMovie to do a couple web videos for our website, Camera+ is a bit better than the native camera app.

    I should also mention CalenGoo, which manages your Google Calendar. Years ago I switched our section's calendaring to iCal, and now to Google because it can be viewed and managed from anywhere.

    That's a really good idea.

    Unless Google turns out to be the devil. Fortunately I have no soul.
