Stephen J. Quaning, 48
Medical director, chief physician / MetroHealth Founder / Gold Seal Aviation
ForeFlight: "It's an app for pilots that replaces many of the paper charts that were once used. It gives current weather data and airport information and also allows you to create a flight plan. "
Jeri Muoio, 66
Mayor / West Palm Beach
West Palm Beach
My Kindle/Twitter: "My apps are a combination of old school and new tech. With so little time to stop and enjoy reading, My Kindle app allows me to catch up on my book reading no matter where I am. At the same time, I love being able to stay in touch with the city and share things as they happen. So my Twitter app is critical to being able to instantly communicate with residents. "
John O'Donnell, 33
President / Insurance Consultants of Central Florida
iAnnotate: "It enables me to take most any attachment and complete forms, signatures or make mark-ups while on the go. "
Steve Blount, 59
Founder / Digital Marketing Ninja; Media Doctor
OmniFocus: "Unlike many other organizers, it allows me to ‘nest' infinite levels of subtasks within general tasks, so I can plan activities with hundreds of steps, give them deadlines and dependencies and then have OmniFocus tell me which ones are available to be done at any time. If I'm in my car, it will let me know what things need to be done while out driving, (like) picking up hardware or getting documents from a client. As a marketing professional with a lot of clients, OmniFocus helps me work through overlapping critical deadlines without missing a beat. "
Phyllis Green, 71
Chairman / Green Advertising & Vidpop
Flashlight: "I use Flashlight when trying to unlock a door in a dark hallway, when exiting a hotel elevator to my room at night, when reading a menu in a dark venue, and most of all, in a dark parking lot. "
Michel Koopman, 40
CEO / getAbstract
The Week: "The Week summarizes global weekly news from many genres and geographies. It's a great addition to my daily read of the WSJ for a more financial perspective, my usual business book summary read and the other periodicals I subscribe to like The Economist. The Week is easy to digest and brings together some of the best columns and multiple perspectives, summarized in about a 30-minute read. "
Edward Woodill III, 49
Chief design officer, Workscapes
SoundCloud/PayByPhone: "I use two apps frequently. One is SoundCloud, which I listen to a lot on my drives between Miami and Orlando. The other app is PayByPhone. It lets you pay for your parking from your phone instead of having to worry about having change. It also warns you when your time is running out and allows you to add money. "
