Mobile apps have and continue to change the way we do business. For the last decade, I’ve talked about mobile apps and how it can make our work better, faster and more fun. So, this week I’d like to share some of the most practical mobile apps you can use to be more efficient at work and play.
Mobile Apps for reaching customers
This is a great tool I often use. It’s perfect to help you manage your social networks. Most majors are available: Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn. This social media manager helps save time by allowing you to schedule posts and photos to most of your social media networks, all while on the go. Likewise you can read and respond to your timeline and posts, and make updates along the way.
With WordPress mobile, you have the power to publish in the palm of your hand. Draft a spontaneous haiku from the couch. Then, snap a photo on your lunch break for the week’s photo challenge at The Daily Post. Likewise, respond to your latest comments, or check your stats to see where today’s readers are coming from. Manage or create your WordPress blog or website right from your mobile device.
Breakfast, lunch, dinner, looking for a nice place to bring a customer in your city or any visiting cities in the world? Find exactly what you are looking for, wherever you are. Find the best restaurants, bars and more. Foursquare City Guide will lead you to the perfect spot. Even better, you can get personalized recommendations, by adding tastes, rating of places and logging where you’ve been. Find exactly what you’re looking for. Faster.
Mobile Apps for managing admin and operations
Trello is the project management tool everyone needs. It gives you perspective over all your projects, at work and at home. Either to manage a team, write an epic screenplay or simply make grocery list, Trello is your devoted sidekick. By using this amazing app you’re sure to stay organized and always get things done. Create boards to organize all your work. Invite coworkers to collaborate.
Last Pass Password Manager keeps you secure and protected. You only have one master password to remember, and LastPass does the rest. It is your air-tight memory, and it will automatically fill out your logins, and generate new, strong passwords for you. On top of this, you can also create secure notes and store photo, video and audio. Also store memberships, IDs, software keys and any other sensitive data.
Featured by Apple in Best New Apps and Best New Business Apps. If you’re looking for a great and easy cloud storage solution, Box is for you. Securely store, manage and share all your files, photos and documents with 10GB free. With this mobile app, you’ll be able to share huge files with just a link; access files and folders offline; and work in real-time with others. It’s fast, secure and simple to use, so you can be productive from anywhere.
Deliveries: a package tracker. Who doesn’t want to know when its package will arrive when ordering for delivery? Deliveries supports dozens of services, including UPS, FedEx, US Postal Service, DHL, TNT, Canada Post, City Link, Royal Mail, and many more. You can also track orders from services like Amazon and Apple. And, if you have packages from other services, you can add information so you can check on them when you need to.
Not sure this one needs an introduction. However, Google Docs is a very powerful real-time collaboration and document authoring tool. Share documents and work together with others in the same document at the same time, while seeing everyone’s changes instantaneously. Get stuff done anytime – even without an internet connection. And, mostly, never worry about losing your work – Google Docs automatically saves everything as you type.
Mobile Apps for business travel
With the Via Rail Canada app, you can easily manage your trip even on the go. You can do everything a trip might entitle: access your itinerary, boarding pass and schedules in real time. You can book, cancel or make changes along the way. For your convenience, you can add your trip to your calendar, and share your itinerary with others. No worries when going to an unknown place.
Who doesn’t know Google Maps? Yes, there are lots of other navigating mobile apps out there, but Google Maps is still the easiest and most accurate one. With Google Maps installed on your device, you can view street and satellite maps of the whole World. Find your way around regardless of if you’re driving, walking, biking, or taking the city transit. You will get there faster and beat traffic with real-time ETAs…
The social mapping app for drivers. Google Maps may be the best mobile mapping app but Waze offers drivers-focused features that Maps doesn’t. Google owns both mobile apps, but they’re completely different. Waze focuses on getting you places without bothering with what’s around. Some of the cool features available with Waze are road hazard alerts, police/speed camera alerts and a points system.
