The 13 best new software apps from Demo

Services designed to make your life easier


We've rounded up  the 13 hottest new products from this year's DEMO conference - known as the launchpad for emerging technology.

Hashwork

This is a sort of Twitter for your workplace that can integrate Google Calendar and Twitter to give workers a hub they can monitor throughout the day to see what their coworkers are up to.

The folks at Demo claim that Hashwork has become a staple in their daily work environment.

dotSyntax Digsby

One annoying feature of having multiple accounts with different social networking and instant messaging protocols is the need to keep multiple windows open at once if you want to keep track of them all.

Digsby is a program that aims to consolidate all these protocols by merging all instant messaging screen names onto one single messenger and by merging social networking sites to give real-time updates on all of them simultaneously.

For instance, if you had accounts with MySpace, Twitter and Facebook, Digsby would serve as a one-stop hub that would tell you every time a friend wrote something on your wall or responded to your tweets.
