Editor’s Note: We think of entrepreneurs as being on the cutting edge. They have the new ideas, the new creations, and the innovative ideas that turn thoughts into actualities. So Sarah Holtz and I hit Fulton Street Alley (the current hot spot forNew Orleans Entrepreneur Week) to ask some NOEW attendees and presenters about the smartphone Apps that keep them invigorated and interested. Here’s an inside peek at entrepreneurs’ smartphones.
