If you get the paper edition of the Wall Street Journal, then you may have seen that the very top of the front page of yesterday's edition announced a special section of the paper called "The Best Mobile Apps for Almost Anything." The special section includes almost two dozen helpful articles recommending a wide variety of apps. Click here for a link to all of those articles in the Wall Street Journal.
Journal reporter Geoffrey Fowler talked to me when he researched his "Take a Trip" article which recommends travel-related apps and accessories. If you ever take an iPhone or iPad when you travel, you'll enjoy that article. (And if you enjoy that article, you may also be interested in this this article I wrote for the BigLaw TechnoLawyer newsletter last month about how iOS 6 — which Apple is likely to release in just a few weeks — will make it even easier to travel with an iPhone or iPad.)
Other articles in the series recommend apps for (among other things) cooking, reading, shopping, managing your money, exercising, dating, going to the movies, and holding a remote meeting. There are also several articles that recommend apps for parents of kids of various ages.
You usually need to be a paid subscriber to read articles on the Wall Street Journal website, but for now it appears that you can still read the articles from the special section even without a membership. If you are not a subscriber, just be aware that you may not have long to click the above links.
