I’ve been pondering my next book, and I think I have it! Instead of another book with a billion tools, I’m going to pick 25+ of my favorites and give you how-tos, tips and tricks to make those tools your own.
Here’s my shortlist of favorite tools that I want to write about. What’s missing???? I’d love to hear which tools you’d like to know more about in my next book.
- Poll Everywhere
- Google Docs
- Google+ Hangouts
- Adobe Reader

Hello Beth! I am so happy that I was able to attend your class in San Antonio a few weeks ago. I bought the book and have been keeping up with your email updates and FB posts. I can’t wait for another book to come out! That’s fantastic for you (and me too)! Can you suggest an app that records and then transcribes notes into a text/Word doc? I just downloaded Evernote, but haven’t had the chance to fully explore its capabilities. Thanks for all you do!
I like Unrollme.
I have to concur with you Unroll.me ROCKS! It has helped me take control of my Google InBox.
I also love Google Alerts for content creation.
Beth, you should use AllOurIdeas.org for this project! I’d like to know more about any photo or graphic tools. Right now I need something that will make JPEGs transparent for use on colored backgrounds in e-newsletters. We have sponsor logos that just don’t look good unless you put them on a white background. Sometimes that’s just dull. Thanks for all you do for us, Beth!
http://doodle.com/ The time and frustrations this saves me is priceless. I work with a lot of volunteer organizations and even the most technology challenged can use it with ease. Love it.
I would love to know some tips and tricks on the best ways to use Gmail. It has so many quirks and things that anything I could really benefit from learning the best way to use it. It would also be great to learn more about the best ways to use all the google stuff together (+, drive, etc) as they all seem to be connected now.
Don’t forget Printliminator!!!
I love, love, love PaperKarma and iPassword!
I love to grab info with Pocket!
Beth – one of the best conferencing tools I have used recently is UberConference. The free version allows you to do almost anything that the low-end (paid) go-to-meeting does: screen sharing; remote muting/text chat with invitees; call recording and mobile apps. But if you are willing to pop for $10 per month, UberConference will call each of your invitees and join them to your conference. Plus the hold music is rather unique! used by evernote, box, dropbox, opentable, Chick-fil-A, Marriott, just to name a few companies.
Best of luck on the new book!

Your list already includes my favorite two, which are Dropbox and Tagxedo. Good luck with your writing retreat… I hope you get as much done as you are hoping!
The life-saver tools (and my faves) I learned about from Beth Z: EverContact, Wunderlist and LastPass! Still loving the updates and almost feeling nerdy!
