What are some of the most useful mobile apps for businesses?
I use the app Mustbin which makes it easy to store and share documents on your phone. Are there any other mobile apps that are helpful and make doing business on the go easier?
Concur is a useful expense-reporting tool, which also has travel booking functionality.
Expensify – which describes itself as “expense reports that don’t suck.” This app provides easy scanning of receipts and categorizing of trips.
Evernote – not new, but this note-taking/collaboration app continues to be a favorite.
I believe that having a project management app is always an advantage, and Asana is a great tool.
I think Pushbullet is a very useful application to send files, data or photos from your work PC or phone to other devices, my CEO recently got on it after he saw it takes 2 clicks to send a Photoshop design to my phone for viewing.
Sky drive by Microsoft is a great save in the cloud. It's also more secure than Dropbox. Having a national business with partners interstate, we substitute Sky Drive as a server for all our business templates and info. It's quick, easy, secure and doesn't require a pc, just use any device.
We found Dropbox to have limitations in comparison.
Some of the best that I use is Google Drive which I keep a resume and cover letter on hand in there along with portfolio pieces that gives me the ability to email to someone if I just met them. Evernote is great for notes and organizing if you are doing several things. PayPal and Square I use for taking payments on the go when I am having to collect from clients. Shake for legal and contracts with clients and I use it a lot saves me time and allows me to get clients secure quicker.
I use Cam Scanner quite frequently. It's great for taking photos of paper documents when a traditional scanner is not available and it improves the photo quality but enhancing the white paper background and the text. From there you can choose to pdf the image. It's also great for taking photos of whiteboards, no more lost brainstorming sessions. Lastly, receipts. No more lost expense receipts.
Here are some of the apps I use on almost a daily basis for my business:
Document Sharing: Google Drive, OneDrive, Dropbox, Zoho Docs (depends on which one my client(s) use, so I use them all)
Project Management: Zoho Projects
Accounting: Zoho Books (provides snapshot of your business and also allows for invoicing, expensing, and time keeping)
Calling: UberConference (for conference calling), Google Voice/Hangouts (for US), Skype (for international)
Note taking: Evernote
Social media management: Buffer
On top of the 'classic ones' (Evernote, Dropbox...) give a try to trello.com - great to manage anything & keep co-workers in the loop.
17hats.com has a great invoicing and organizing platform. And of course, Google Drive;-)
I use Google Drive and Evernote for that. I've never needed anything more. I also use Dropbox but not as much since Google Apps got so great. For hosting stuff, I like the S3 Anywhere browser from Amazon for AWS.
