I know that I spend more time on my MacBook than I do on my iPhone, especially when work is involved. There are a number of web based apps out there that can help you to organize your work, prioritize and improve your web presence. The best part, a number are free.

1. Switch

From there, job opportunities come up. If interested, swipe right, and the company is notified. If they are interested in you, they will contact you about the job.

7. MindMeister

webRemember making mind maps in class as a kid? Well, this fad has returned, but online, of course. MindMeister is one of the many web apps that have created a free version of mind mapping. I enjoy this one out of all of them, however, because of the nice visual format and the tutorials it provides. This is useful for writers, but also anyone who needs help just thinking through an idea.
