MOBILEDAY MAKES CONFERENCE CALLS EASIER ON THE ROAD

Have you had to dial in to a conference call from outside the office?

What a pain! Check your calendar or, worse, your email for dialing details. Click on the phone number (if you're lucky!), and then try to remember the stupid ID number, hit pound or sometimes star, and then, if you're lucky again, you're on.

I travel a lot, and conference calls are a way of life. This "dial in" ordeal got old fast. I knew there had to be a better way. Turns out there is--an app called MobileDay that makes phone conferencing on the go a one-click breeze.

When installed, MobileDay goes through your calendar and retrieves your phone conference appointments, stores the dial-in and ID numbers, and, when it is time to join the conference, one click and you're done. If you're running a little late (not that I have ever needed this feature!), MobileDay can send an email so indicating--again, one click. To set up a call, just type in attendees and the time, and MobileDay does the rest using whatever conference service you use. This is what apps are supposed to do--make your life easier and your day more convenient.
