For every Angry Birds and Words With Friends, there is a great app that can actually help you improve your business’ performance. These helpful business apps might just change the way you perform your daily tasks.
10 – Square
This service is great for vendors on the go. Using a small device that plugs into your phone’s headphone jack, you can swipe customer’s credit cards and receive payment immediately rather than having to turn away customers who don’t have cash. The company only keeps 2 percent of each transaction.
9 – Evernote
This is a great app for anyone who is looking to connect all of his or her devices. You can make notes, voice memos and photos and sync them to all of your devices. If you have anything from a business proposal to a grocery list on your iPhone, you can sync them to your computer and print them quickly and conveniently.
8 – Jott
Jott is a great app for anyone who has to do interviews or take voice memos on a regular basis. Jott records your memos and transcribes them to text in a matter of seconds. It also allows you to set different billing codes and rates for different clients.
7 – Road Tripper
This is the perfect app for anyone who has to drive regularly for his or her job. Instead of having to meticulously track the start and stop odometer readings to be reimbursed for your job, allow Tripper to track your comings and goings using its built in GPS tracker.
This app allows users to track credit card balances and statements and keeps track of invoices and profit and loss reports. If you have a hard time wrapping your mind around concepts like balance sheets or income statements, this is the app for you. If you’d prefer to do the invoicing yourself, find some easy to use invoice templates instead.
This app is great for workers who bill by the hour. If you begin work on a project, start the clock and once it’s over, turn it off. The app also allows you to figure out pay using various rates and email the data when you’re done.
This app does exactly what it sounds like. What business owner doesn’t want access to the Wall Street Journal?
3 – Box.net
Send packages of documents, videos and photos with this app. You can set up a team workspace where anyone working within the team can upload something and the new packages show up in everyone’s folders.
2 – Flight Track
This app will help you find cheap airfare available at just about any airport in the world. With this app, getting airfare is a cinch.
1 – Around Me
Are you on the road? Unfamiliar with your surroundings? You’re a Yankee who finds himself in Texas and you want to know where to find a great breakfast taco. You’re in luck, because you have the Around Me app to tell you what’s in your general vicinity.
