Keep track of your notes in real time
Google Drive (drive.google.com; free for Apple, Android and desktop) is an app you can’t live without or remember what you did before you had it. If you work online and need to share documents with others or share documents with yourself on multiple devices, this is the app for you.
No more long, unwieldy e-mail trails and forgetting which version is more current. The app houses your living, breathing creation. Type in your meeting notes on your phone and then open up the app on your desktop, and it’s there. Make a few changes and close that down, then open it up at home. Remember some random tweak while you’re waiting in line at the bank and you can type that in, too. Imagine sharing a grocery or to-do list with a spouse and being able to add or subtract from it in real-time.

‘Wii Fit’ franchise gets makeover
Perhaps Nintendo’s Wii U console will finally catch on now that the company is releasing Wii U versions of its blockbuster fitness and sports games.
The first version of “Wii Fit” for the original Wii sold more than 20 million units and generated more than $2 billion in sales. It also broadened the appeal of the console beyond gamers and established what’s now a major category of console-based fitness programs.
Nintendo recently announced that “Wii Fit U” will be released Nov. 1 — a year after the Wii U console debuted — with 77 activities, including 19 new exercise routines, such as luge racing and salsa dancing. The game will be offered as a free download, playable for a month, after which people will have to buy the full version and an accessory Fit Meter fitness monitor for $20. A packaged version of the game will go on sale Dec. 13.
