Moleskine got together with Evernote and kicked out a really neat and simple planner that right off the bat, I need to tell you that I love it. The notebook allows for me to use a hard copy planner to quickly access and visualize my tasks, with the option to digitalize it and upload it…
I use my iPad mini to write clinical notes on a PDF-reader program. (I should make a separate blog post about how to make your iPad HIPAA compliant.) On the app, I will use iOS dictation to write my notes, but when that’s unavailable, I will use my thumbs on the touch screen.
I’ve gotten lazy about trivial matters like text messaging – I blame aging on this. While it’s aggravating to talk to people that still use “u” and “ur” (I’ve stopped talking to those people), I use several of these keyboard shortcuts now when I text.
Evernote presents a dilemma for me: I love it but it’s not HIPAA friendly. This is how I use the app for things concerning clients and can be helpful for people that practice as therapists, psychologist, and related fields of social work!
I received the following email from a colleague.
I’m the type of user who likes to use as few sites as possible, but maximize the use of each application. I’m a little OCD about clutter and this especially is applied to digital clutter. I’m comparing the merits of Evernote vs Dropbox. I’m not convinced that I need both products as they seem to overlap.
I read your article on creating a toolbox, and several other articles on SWTB, but I’m still not convinced that I need both platforms. However, you seem to be convinced that both are quite useful.
As a doctoral student, I have a massive amount of files that I rely on for my research needs. What *are* the merits of using both products for filing purposes?

Today I am going to introduce Google Documents to the social workers that read this blog and may not know how to use it.
One geek fantasy that I had since iPad was announced was eliminating a certain nightmare:
I’m looking forward to (attempting) to use my iPad as a machine that eliminates my dependence on as much paper as I can, which means utilization of my scanner and tech skills to make this happen.
My iPad and I make quite the dynamic duo when it comes to practicing social work.
I’m not going to hide the fact that I’m an Apple fanboy. When I saw the iPad come out, I was dismayed with it’s lack of USB port, no Adobe Flash playing capabilities, and virtual keyboard. Despite this, I knew I must have one.
