With the right apps, your mobile device can become a powerful productivity tool. Download these to help you with common problems like paying suppliers, keeping track of meetings, organize contacts, and even plan your next business trip.
Go to squareup.com to download Square, a free app that lets you process credit card payments. There’s small fee for transactions, but the good news is that there are no monthly charges—you only have to pay when you actually use it. It accepts Visa, Mastercard, American Express and Discover.
Another great free app is Evernote (evernote.com) which will organize your task list and then update other devices like your computer and smart phone. You can also use it to store photos and any voice recordings. Think of it as your virtual secretary!
Turn your iPhone into a scanner with Scanner Pro (www.readdle.com) which will let you capture images like business cards or any documents. A lot easier than writing things down, plus you can email the images in PDF format. If you’re concerned about safety, there is password protection. You can also download Print n Share (www.mobile.eurosmartz.com) to send the images to a WiFi printer.
For business travelers, the Flight Track Pro is a worthwhile investment at $9.99. It will notify you of delays in flights and even weather information around airport terminals.
If you’re always giving powerpoint presentations, the Mighty Meeting (app.mightymeeting.com) will let you access any presentations and videos to cloud storage and then let you show it on your laptop, tablet or smart phone.
