goodies.

Here's a list of goodies (a.k.a. awesome tools) we couldn't live without. This list is constantly changing, so check back often. If you'd like to contribute to it, by all means, just drop us a note!

MAKES OUR JOB EASIER
You Send It – For sending very large files.
iCloud – "Your content. On all your devices." 'Nuff said!
Dropbox – Any file you save to your Dropbox will automatically save to all your computers, phones and even the Dropbox website.
My Fax – Internet fax service. Yes, every tree that we help save, counts.
OfficeTime – Helps us track our time on all of our projects. (No monthly fees either!)
Tungle.me – For scheduling meetings between 2 or more people.
Free Conference Call – Pretty self-explanatory :)
MindNode – Easy mind mapping.
Skype – To chat with our out-of-state clients, as well as those who are in other countries. Did we mention it's free?!
LogMeIn – Sometimes, it's just better to show someone something rather than just trying to tell them about it. Screen sharing is the best way to go about it.
