Do You Hate Your Handwriting? I (Emily Mathews, CMP) sure do. With a passion. I was lamenting to iPad guru Stormi Boyd, CMP, CMM (whom many of our members know) about how I want to "write" on my iPad but cannot stand my writing on paper, let alone on an iPad. Great info from Stormi: "This is huge! I have an app called Noteshelf ($5.99 at the App Store). It is amazing and has allowed me to completely get rid of my spiral bound notebooks for notes. You can write in all different colors, highlight, and you can zoom...therefore your handwriting looks prettier. I'm also a huge advocate of the stylus from Adonit. It's called the Jot Pro. About $20 but worth every penny. They have them on Amazon or at Fry's."

Red Coat Direct

Marriott International unveiled an app that allows meeting organizers to request onsite services at Marriott-branded properties, according to the hotel company. "Available for all Internet-enabled devices including iPhone, iPad, Android phones, Kindle Fire and laptops," Red Coat Direct "is personalized to each organizer's specific meeting," according to Marriott. Requests submitted through the app are routed to the appropriate event manager "and the department that can fulfill the request." Users can submit requests within three days of a meeting and throughout the event. Red Coat Direct currently is applicable for events at 10 U.S. Marriott-branded hotels. By the end of 2014, it will be expanded to "the brand's entire global portfolio of 500 hotels," and made available in 19 languages, according to the company. From Business Travel News
