App of the Week: Yammer


The problem with conversations is that they're ephemeral: People get together, they talk, sometimes they come up with a brilliant idea, more often they don't, but either way, no one's keeping track. Yammer can help.


Particularly good for dispersed or virtual teams, Yammer lets you create and keep conversations on all kinds of topics. It's a bit like text messaging with a document management function: a handy way to share thoughts, information, even pictures, while at the same time maintaining a record and repository so that you can keep track of the ephemera that will someday turn out to be extremely valuable (or, perhaps, not ...).

Available for a wide range of device systems, including Android, iOS, and Windows Phone, it's also available in 11 languages, in case you need to have brilliant ideas internationally.
