Cool free stuff

By
Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Shoreline New Hampshire & Maine

Here's a couple of new free stuff aps that some may find useful.

First is called "NudgeMail" which sends you email reminders when you want to be reminded of something, e.g. appointment, birthday, whatever. You can set your email to just send you an email reminder on the appropiate date and/or time.

I know lots of other stuff does the same thing but it's one more tool in your toolbox to keep you from missing something that's important or that you really want to do.

It also synchronizes with Google Calendar.

'Fallin off a log' easy to use, free, and can be useful.

next is a cool file sharing ap called "Ge.tt". Say you want to send a client a batch of new photos of his or her listing to get their OK or approval or just to show them you're working on their listing. Sending a big attachment doesn't always work as we all know. With Ge.tt you just upload them to Ge.tt, copy the shortened URL, and send them along to whoever. They then click the link, go to the Ge.tt website and see whatever you sent them.

You can mix and match different file types too. I tried it with 6 JPGs, 2 .doc file, 4 PDFs, and a Publisher file thrown in for good measure. (your recipient has to have the program to open file types). They all appeared on Ge.tt just as I uploaded them and were easy to open.

"Ge.tt Huh? What is it?

Ge.tt is a real-time file sharing service. But what is it really and what can you use it for?

Let's try to explain it a bit. What is Ge.tt? Ge.tt is an instant, real-time file publishing and sharing service. With Ge.tt there is no need for special software or plug-ins. It is a simple file sharing and publishing tool for all types of materials including documents, video, music and photos.

How does it work and what can you use it for? With Ge.tt you can turn any type of file into web content and share it instantly. You can share documents, video, music and photos in the browser making them instantly available for the recipient.

If you sign up, you can even re-use and keep track of the materials that you previously shared. Ge.tt is suitable for professional and personal use.

Real-time sharing Your files are ready to be published or shared as soon as you select them! No need to wait for files to upload.

Real-time statistics You can easily track how many people have downloaded or viewed your files."

So two cool new ways to do stuff you're already doing and both are my favorite price; FREE!

Ge.tt and NudgeMail, give em a try.

And as a bonus for reading this far here's another cool, free website called WorkFlowy which is one of those things so simple it makes you mad you didn't think of it yourself. Basically Workflowy is just a list you generate but it goes way beyond jsut being a list. I have mine on my Bookmarks toolbar and look at it daily to see what goals, projects, links, notes, or whatever, I need to remind myself of or get done today. Take a look at WorkFlowy, it will help simplify your life.
