When you have to take care of your business while you are on the go, having a smart phone is no longer a luxury. With the right apps, your phone can become your most valuable tools for keeping track of everything that needs to get done, communicating with your team and even for accepting payments on the fly. Smart phones like the Blackberry, Android and iPhone have changed the playing field for mobile devices and have freed us up to get things done without being stuck behind a computer.
If you are looking for a job there is probably an App for that. If you are starting your own business there are definitely Apps that can fill many roles. They key to harnessing all of the potential of your mobile device is loading it with the right programs that will help streamline your productivity.
Here are some of the best Apps for business:
- Evernote – This program offers the ability to type or record notes on the go. After you type your note you can tag them however you like. The end product is a virtual memo pad that allows you to keep all of your notes in a filing system that works best for you. What's more, it automatically syncs the data on your phone with the data on your desktop. This mean that no matter where you access Evernote, your information is still there.
- Square – This App probably has the highest potential for small businesses. It allows users to accept credit card payments on an iPhone, iPad or Android phone. Once you sign up for an account, Square sends you a credit card reader that plugs into your phone. This flexibility is gaining popularity among small business owners and even street vendors.
- Chase's Banking App – This App is only available for iPhone users. What makes it stand out from other banking apps is that it allows account holders to take a picture of their check, enter in the information and the check is deposited into their account. No need to wait in line at the bank or make a special trip to make the deposit.
- Linkedin – This App is also only available for iPhone users. It is just like your regular Linkedin profile, except it is on your phone. This allows you to do real time checks on potential employees and it is so easy to use. Now you can Linkedin stalk people on the go.
Finding the right program to fit your needs is simple, and most of these apps are available for the low, low price of free.
