iPhone Business Apps: How To Work From Anywhere

iPhone Business AppsHave 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:

Scanner Pro

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.

Top 6 Useful Productivity Apps

  1. Evernote

    Ever have a idea that you need to jot down and not forget? Evernote does this and more. With Evernote you can sync all your notes from your computer, phone and the web.

    This useful app does more than just note taking. You can type, a note, clip a web page, snap a photo and use voice notes.

    To make things easier they offer organizing tools to help you search by keywords, titles and tags. My personal favorite is the ability to search images that have handwritten notes and snapshots of documents. www.evernote.com offers a collection of useful suggestions on how to take advantage of this powerful web app.

  2. Scr.im

    Are you afraid to post your email address on the web? Then scr.im is the right tool for you. This useful little web app is like a url shortener but for your email address.

    Posting your email address in places like forums, twitter or comments area is a easy spam target. What this app does for you is takes yourname@gmail.com and converts it for example to http://scr.im/yourname. If a person wants to email you, they will go to this URL and take a simple humanity check to reveal the protected email address.

  3. Permatime

    When working with clients or colleagues from different time zones, setting up meetings based on your local time can be a hassle. Instead of calculating the time difference in your head or searching for the time zone your contact is in, use permatime.com.

    What Permatime does is generates a link you can share with others that will show the time in their own local time zone.

  4. TitanPad

    Need a quick easy way to work on a text document simultaneously with others, then try titanpad.com. If you love to collaborate and take advantage of cloud computing then try out TitanPad. This web app offers a no sign-up, write instantly solution.

  5. DocsPal

    Have you ever worked with someone that sends you a file that you don’t have the application for and all you need to do is view what they sent you? Try www.docspal.com. This quick and easy free file converter will save you the headache of wondering what that file looks like. DocsPal allows you to view documents and images they convert directly in your browser.

  6. OpenWith.org

    Similar to DocsPal this website is geared towards helping you view a file you can’t open. What www.openwith.org offers is a resource to finding free applications to download and open that file.
