Have you ever looked at your iPhone and thought it would be great if it could help you out at work? If you have, you might like some of these iPhone business apps. There’s many more than just these five, of course, for a very wide variety of possible uses and tasks (the catchphrase “there’s an app for that” exists for a reason), but these five are some of the best.
If you’re looking for good iPhone business apps, give one of these a try:
The Scanner Pro is one of the more interesting iPhone business apps. It essentially allows your iPhone to act as a scanner. With this app, you can scan almost any document and email it to others, or upload it to your company server, or anything else you need to do with a scanned document. It also works with Dropbox and Evernote, two other apps in this same list.
OmniFocus for iPhone
As the winner of the 2008 Apple Design Award for Best iPhone Productivity Application, this is one of the better iPhone business apps that you can find. It’s really simple to use, too. All you need to do is enter in the tasks you need to do, and OmniFocus allows you to arrange those tasks and organize them in whatever way you would find most productive.
Dropbox allows you to keep your files with you, no matter where you are. If you’re using Dropbox, all you need to do is save the file you want to your Dropbox, where it will proceed to appear on your computer(s), your iPhone, and anything else you can access Dropbox from. This is very useful if you don’t want to keep track of CDs, DVDs, flash drives, and the like.
Evernote is another of those “save whatever you want for later” iPhone business apps, like Dropbox. But unlike Dropbox, Evernote also includes several ways to retrieve things you have saved, whether it’s by keywords, tags or even text in the saved objects themselves. Also, like Dropbox, Evernote works on computers, iPhones and other gadgets all at once.
Cisco Mobile 8.1
If you ever wanted to use your iPhone as an office phone, then this is the app for you. Cisco Mobile allows you to connect your iPhone to your workplace or office’s phone infrastructure, allowing you to receive calls just as you would at work, without actually being there.
