Business Apps

You’ve got to be savvy in today’s business world. And what better way to get ahead in your career than with some killer business apps? After all, your smartphone is the better business partner than your smartphone?(sense?) It’s there with you at every meeting, every client dinner and every sales call.

The right apps for business can help you find a great job, deliver important documents via the cloud, or schedule a video chat instead of a traditional conference call. One of our favorite business apps is Square, the easy-to-use mobile payment app from a co-founder of Twitter. It’s a great tool for small companies that are always selling products on the go.

Whether you’re working in the office, from an airport lounge or on the other side of the globe, we all need to stay connected. The right business app can make your coworkers feel like you’re in the boardroom with them even when working remotely. Stay on top of your to-do list, client calls and lunch meetings all with the swipe of your finger.

For communication with distributed employees, one of our favorite apps for business is Skype. It’s a great alternative to Facetime if your company doesn’t use iPhones. Browse our collection of work and business apps, and find your favorites.
