It is very likely that, as a modern business owner, you own at least a smartphone and maybe even a tablet of some kind. Remember the tagline for App Store products “There’s An App for that”? This is actually very true when it comes to business. You can use your smartphone or tablet during your working day for more than just idle mucking around and playing games; in the following post we will look at some of the great apps out there that can help improve your productivity.
If you don’t like to be stuck behind your desk in the office or at home all day you can use Daedalus Touch for any written work you want to get done in a more comfortable setting. It features a whole host of handy features, but keeps the focusing on the actual writing and not the app.
Sunrise is a very comprehensive, but very easy to use calendar app. Not only does it look good and offer all the functions you would expect, but it also integrates locations you have entered for particular days and times with Google Maps. This is handy if you need to be somewhere at a certain time next Tuesday for instance, but also need directions on how to get there. You can find all the information about your appointment, business meeting etc. from the Sunrise app.
If you are forever thinking up ideas on the go or at times when there is no pen and paper handy to jot them down, Scraps is a great app to download. It enables you to organise your thoughts and record them, so that you can look over them at a more convenient time.
Do you love making up “To Do” lists or find it hard sticking to them? Carrot might be the app that helps you make better use of your time and stick to those lists. It alerts you every day to your current to-do lists, encouraging you to tackle them. It is a very unique and in some ways quirky app in that it gets cross with you if you don’t do what you are supposed to do.
Thinglist should be seen as more than a simple “To Do” list. It can be used to store and organize products you want to try, people you want or need to speak to and books you are planning on reading.
If you have a more creative mind, you may find Inkflow very useful. It allows you to sketch you’re your ideas and enables you to export your Inkflow creations into JPEG and PDF file formats that you can access later when you are at your computer.
Cue is an app that can help you organise your day so that you use your time in the most efficient way. It links and syncs up all your accounts including Dropbox, Twitter, Calendar, Gmail and various other networks and platforms to give you a clear view of what needs to be done on a specific day.
