Re: Touchdown for Exchange
I have seen the Touchdown widgets, I liked Touchdown in general and used it until the Android Mail app improved enough that I didn't need it anymore.  The built in widgets and app caught up to the point that Touchdown was just redundant for me.  I think a lot of app developers need to be careful of this happening as the mobile OSes mature.

Re: Evernote
I haven't gotten into Evernote yet. Long before I had a tablet, I was using OneNote on my PC. Then, I started syncing it to my phone. Now, it syncs between my laptop, my Android phone and my iPad. We have other staff in the organization who swear by Evernote, though. I just haven't made a switch because I have so much history in my OneNote notebooks.

Re: Touchdown for Exchange
Touchdown supports multiple interactive widgets, as long as you're using the right version. The widget capabilities were delivered as part of Honeycomb, initially, and then as part of Jelly Bean on the OS side.

Travel App/Site Of The Year: BestTravelCoupon.com
BestTravelCoupon.com is a "travel search engine" (similar to Kayak).  However, it searches more sites and consistently posts lower rates than Kayak.  The app also has a useful same day booking deal feature.

See rate comparisons of BestTravelCoupon on Travel-Search-Engines.com.  A very useful app/site for any business traveller.

A very useful appointment manager...
SalonBook is a unique appointment manager.  It can manage appointments, clients and staff anywhere multiple persons are involved.  It has been used in Nail Salons, Hair Salons, Barber Shops, and other shops where several person's appointments need to be scheduled.  One user has even used SalonBook to keep track of her children's sports activities.  It has the ability to take images of clients and each appointment can have it's own image showing completion of the appointment activity.  It's available on the Apple Store for $4.99 USD.

Re: Touchdown for Exchange
I used Touchdown with the very early versions of Android because the mail clients were horrible but in the past couple of years I have shifted back to the standard Android Mail app.  The only thing I miss is notifications for sub folders since I use Outlook to move specific messages but then again not getting 400 notifications a day on those sub folders is one reason I stopped using Touchdown.  The apps I use most often aren't even apps they are widgets.  My home screen includes a Mail widget as well as a Calendar widget so I can see my day at a glance.

Evernote
I find Evernote incredibly useful for business purposes, being able to take notes on my laptop but have them synced to mobile devices is invaluable.

Touchdown for Exchange
My all-time favorite app for Android is still Touchdown for Exchange by Nitrodesk. It is a full-featured Outlook-esque client for Android. The features far exceed the delivered mail and calendar app. The iOS version isn't quite as full featured, but is improving. A little pricey at $20, but since I live in that app during the day, well worth it.

It's about bringing big data analytics, mobile, social, marketing automation, cloud computing, and the app economy together to launch new products and services. We're seeing new titles in this digital revolution, new responsibilities, new business models, and major shifts in technology spending.
