For business or personal sanity, it’s never been easier to keep tabs on what’s going on in your social circle. Keep up with Friends, “friends,” business connections, etc. with a handful of free and easy to use mobile apps. Here are my favorites…

Favorite Mobile Apps To Stay Connected

  1. Google Mobile (Gmail, Calendar, Docs, Reader).
  2. Tungle – An easier way to schedule your meetings.
  3. Linkedin – Stay active among your professional network.
  4. Twitter – Promote yourself to the world.
  5. Facebook – Stay connected with your private network.
  6. Foursquare – Check in at your favorite destinations.
  7. Hootsuite – Publish to multiple social networks at once.
  8. Skype – Make free VoIP calls and instant messaging.
  9. AIM – Chat with your connections.
  10. AroundMe – Location-based app to find out what stores are nearby.

I hear good things about Oovoo for mobile video chat, but I haven’t tried it yet.
