Whatever type of business you own, it’s always a good idea to keep abreast of the latest technology, especially if it could help you run your business.
If you’re wondering ‘should I sell my iPhone and upgrade to a business model’ then take a look at these fantastic apps that you could take advantage of when you upgrade your iPhone.
This handy app lets you bookmark articles or anything of interest that you spy on the web so you can read them later. With Instapaper you create a personalised newspaper page which is easy to navigate and looks great on the larger iPhone 5 screen. Any articles you bookmark are stored offline so you can view them without being connected to the net, which is ideal for business flights or travelling – features which will make you glad you choose to visit mobile phone recycling sites and rid yourself of that dated handset.
LinkedIn is already a hugely popular business networking site and the latest app has everything you need to keep up with your business connections. With this app you can sync your calendar with LinkedIn to find information on people you’re meeting with, view and save jobs, read industry news, get group updates and share your content.
Documents to Go – Office Suite
With this clever app you can create and edit all types of document on your iPhone including Word, Excel and PDF. With the premium version you can edit third party files and edit and create PowerPoint presentations.
Cisco WebEx Meetings
Join conferences across the world with this app which allows you to host meetings, take part in meetings and view a document, presentation or application that’s been shared by another user.
When you need to travel a lot for work organising your flights can be a real hassle. TripIt helps you manage your trip itineraries in one place so you can make all the arrangements you need, from renting a car to booking a flight. The app can even read PDF tickets and extract the information you need so you never miss a flight.
You’ll also find comprehensive maps, directions and places of interest and if your flight is cancelled, Tripit will trawl the net to find alternative arrangements for you. If you upgrade to TripIt Pro you can get extra savings on travel tickets and receive reminders and status alerts about your travel arrangements whilst you’re on the go.
This dictation app is the most effective yet and is five times faster than typing. You can use it to create documents, make notes or compose emails or SMS messages. All you do is speak and watch as your words appear. You can also use the voice interface to correct your mistakes making it much easier to keep up with your correspondence when you’re on the go or simply avoid typing.
