4 useful apps for business

Technology is the way forward and is also becoming an integral part of business. Of course, as time passes and technology evolves, we are becoming more and more sophisticated in the way we market ourselves: from websites, to responsive design, mobile sites and now… apps. Apps are rapidly making their way into everyday life, so why not utilize some of these fantastic apps for your business? I have compiled some of the best apps that I think might be useful.

Often when a company has a great website the associated app tends to lose out on a lot of features. LinkedIn is the complete opposite, I’ve actually found the LinkedIn app gives you a few extra features that you have to pay for on the website, such as the ability to see who has viewed your profile. The LinkedIn app allows you to view other companies, staff & groups, all in the palm of your hand, with a magazine–like interface that is a pleasure to use.

The app stands out with the ability to analyse your growth, track your likes & analyse your link clicks. It sends notifications directly to your phone so you can always reply quickly to enquiries and engagements whilst on the move. The perfect business Facebook tool, and a must have if your business is active on social media.

Adding text to a PDF is a breeze, I had to use this feature the other day to fill out a form. It saved a lot of time, I was able to edit the document on my iPad and email it as soon as I had finished. Accompanied by a stylus, the app will also allow you to write and draw on the PDF file. Taking down quick notes has never before been so simple. A fantastic business app for a small cost. App Store: Click here   CamCardScreen Shot 2014-11-13 at 16.48.47 Using your smartphone's camera, CamCard will scan a business card and quickly import it into your contacts list. It’s a quick and painless way to add new business & client contacts. Once you have scanned a card and imported it to your contacts, you will have access to the sending options. Sending and receiving files is such a joy too, it’s quick, fast and simple. What more could you ask for? The app comes in two varieties, a paid version, which is 0.69p or a free version with ads.
