Five ‘Must Have’ iPad Apps for PR

Many of you shared and debated our previous posts about mobile apps for PR.  Since then, I upgraded the quiver to include a tablet–an iPad2–and we hope you do too.  The iPad is truly the “leanback” device so we’ll hedge this post by saying you can’t really stuff all your work into one.  With Apple shipping an estimated 44 million ‘Pads this year, it’s likely many more public relations pros will give them a try.

Here are the apps we like so far.  Stay tuned for more, and drop us an email to prnewser@gmail.com with your suggestions for the next batch.

Cashmore speaking to the crowd at last night's event.

Last night at Edelman’s New York offices, Mashable officially launched Mashable Follow, the site’s “new social layer” that will enable readers to find and follow their favorite topics, share stories to multiple social networks at once and follow other Mashable readers who are of interest, among other features.

PRNewser Party Recap: How Many Flacks Can You Fit Into a Bar?

SideBAR was packed last night for PRNewser’s latest happy hour party. Thanks to everyone for stopping by and enjoying the drink specials, complimentary appetizers, and of course, the good company.

We chatted with newly appointed dna13 Vice Chairman and former PRNewswire President Dave Armon. “We’ll be expanding in North America this year,” he said. Lane Buschel, President of Morris + King’s digital division SeisMK talked to us about some recent successes with client Glam Media. We asked him if he had any agency news, to which he said, “no.” [Update: It turns out M+K does have some news as they announced a new client, LBi IconNicholson US, in today's Spin the Agencies of Record.] Rob Manfredo let us know he just landed at Beckerman Group this week, an agency that was in the news recently for their acquisition of Wise PR. Matt Caldecutt and Scott Rosenblum of TrylonSMR were in attendance, perhaps toasting to the agency’s new client win: LocateTV. Matt also posted a brief recap on his blog. Alyson Campbell of AMP3 PR looked more at ease after a big week managing client Grooveshark and their deal with record label giant EMI.

Kaplow VP Chaim Haas has been busy keeping things running smoothly on the Skype account and was Tweeting away throughout the night. Waggener Edstrom account manager Jeremy Bridgman was busy mingling and reminded us that he is not on the Microsoft account. PRNewser’s favorite couple, Converseon’s Paull Young and M Booth’s Alyssa Galella were enjoying beer and wine, respectively. Tiffany Winbush let us know that she landed at Bridge Global Strategies as a Senior Account Executive. The Dowd Agency publicist Laura Dempsey told us that she runs the agency’s Twitter feed. They’re up to 450 followers. Not too bad.

The most telling sign was that despite the economy, about 90% of attendees (rough estimate) seemed to be employed. Were there job seekers in attendance? Sure, but they were the minority.

There were also a few journalists that snuck in, and some racy ones at that. Playgirl editor-in-chief Nicole Caldwell told us that she is consulting with the magazine on some projects including the Levi Johnston photo shoot. That’s about as far as we got on that one.
