Back in the day, having a mobile phone was like having a fancy sports car. Everyone wanted to have one and admired the ones who did.
The possibility to have a phone call wherever you are without any cables was something trully special. You may laugh, but a few decades ago it was unimaginable.
Nowadays, you can do almost anything on your smartphone unlike in the past when you only had the ability to make phone calls, send text messages and an occasional email.
The business people were the first ones who adopted mobile devices and they are now the ones who can’t live without them.
They are constantly looking for different ways to improve their professional life. The latest trend are business apps which can help you get things done faster and with more efficiency. The only problem is finding the right ones in the sea of business apps.
That quest could easily end up in never ending scrolling. We decided to take this tough task on ourselves and compile a list of the best business apps. So let’s begin!
PDF Converter Ultimate
PDF Converter Ultimate, as the name implies, is the ultimate converter app for your device. With it, you can convert your documents right on your device wherever you are.
It can convert PDF documents with excellent quality to more than 20 popular file formats in a matter of minutes. Except for the first-rate conversion quality, the app stands out from the crowd with its ability to convert scanned documents.
Besides files from your phone, you can convert your files directly from Gmail, Google Drive, Dropbox, iCloud and the list goes on. The app has a user-friendly interface and the process of conversion is pretty straightforward.
Tiny Scanner is a great complementary app to the previously mentioned one.
With it, you can turn your device into a portable scanner in order to scan photos, receipts and all kinds of documents. All the scans can be saved directly to your phone either as an image or PDF file and they can also be organized into folders.
The app has a batch mode which means that multiple scans can be combined into a single PDF. High-quality scans are achieved with the help of automatic edge detection and 5 levels of contrast.
Last but not least, all your scans can be password protected.
Google Drive is one of the most famous and well-known cloud storage services available on the market.
Every new user gets 15GB of storage for free with the option to upgrade to a higher plan in the future. The complete storage is shared with other Google services, like Gmail and Google Photos.
Documents can be easily uploaded to the cloud and accessed from any device or operating system. Files and folders can be shared with specific people through their email addresses or by a public link.
The best feature is collaborative work which means that you and your colleagues can work on the same document from various locations and at different times.
TripIt is a must-have app for frequent travelers. It takes a burden of organizing and sharing travel itineraries, making it a lot easier.
The only thing you will need to do is to forward all the confirmation emails you received from the different booking services to TripIt and the app will do the rest.
It can organize reservations from over 3,000 booking sites like cruises, concerts, restaurants and so on.
All the trip plans can be effortlessly shared via email or with your Facebook and LinkedIn contacts. By keeping your travel information organized you will never miss a flight again or forget the car rental service that you made a reservation with.
If you are not satisfied with the calendar app you got with your phone or you are simply looking for an alternative, look no more.
Jorte Calendar app has a highly configurable interface and supports multiple view modes (monthly, weekly and daily). With its cloud service support, you can keep all your calendars, schedules and tasks always synced and accessible across your devices.
The app supports importing information from Google Calendar, as well. The app has been downloaded more than 30 million times so that should speak for itself.
We hope that you will find these apps useful and that they will at least make your professional life a little bit easier and stress-free.
