It seems like most of the world has hopped on the bandwagon of the Smart Phone trend. Phone service providers are rarely offering products that do not include an internet package. Everywhere you turn people are on their mobile phones now, and they’re not just making phone calls. People are expecting their phones to be fully functional in every area, including conducting business. So that means that programmers have to keep up with mobile apps that will be useful and convenient to their customers. I have found a few that seem pretty handy when it comes to running your small business.
Here are some suggestions that you might want to try out:
WebEx – WebEx is an app that can be used to conduct your business meetings from your phone. Sometimes it is difficult for everyone to be in the same place all at once, and at times not everyone may be able to sit in front of their laptop or projector to have a video conference. But, everyone always has their phones handy, so this app allows you to host or join in on meetings when you can’t be at your desk. WebEx can be used via Android/iPhone/iPad.
Things— This is an awesome app that you can use to get all of your “things” done. The app allows you to be flexible and is great at helping you to manage your multi-tasking abilities. It works well with business and travel. Things can be used via iPhone/iPad.
Dropbox— This app is great for storing files, documents, pictures, presentations and much more. This is a cloud storage app that allows you to have easy access to all of your files from your mobile device and also has a great feature that syncs all of the files to your computer for you. There are versions of the Dropbox app that you can find for free. Dropbox can be used via Android/iPhone/iPad.
Evernote— If you ever need to jot down a quick note or have an idea you don’t want to forget, but you don’t have a pen and paper, then this app is great for you. You can use Evernote to take down quick notes, pictures and even audio files, which can always be handy for later on. Evernote can be used via Android/iPhone/iPad/BlackBerry.
Ringcentral— This app is helpful for when you are on the go. It allows you to check your messages from clients, and also call them using an 800 number (if your business has one) that way you are not being charged for making long distance calls when you are on the road. With this app you can bring your work everywhere. Ringcentral can be used via Android/iPhone/iPad.
