Nice Slideshow!
Thanks for the slideshow! I would have added Beesy as well. It's an all-in-one produtcivity app that suits perfectly to professional hanlding too many meetings (it's note taking system is amazing). I use it on iPad, I didn't find it on my android phone but I guess it is available for iPhone.
